I had hoped to share a drink with Papa H, but the bar was unbelievably crowded. We did squirm our way for a snapshot with the bronze, but couldn't even think about getting a drink. Left, went back to Sloppy Joe's. Fun to see, but not a place to really have some good fun.

Very popular tourist place but do not miss it. Drinks are extraordinary, music is live and atmosphere is vibrant. Perhaps the best two ours spent in Havana!

Good photo stop for the life-size statue of Ernest Hemingway leaning on the bar which is very realistic! Mainly a tourist haunt as expected so crowded and noisy, but still an essential stop in Old Havana. As Hemingway apparently said "My mojito in La Bodeguita, my daiquiri in El Floridita".

This place was crazy. The daiquiris I thought were typical, but the place was crazy busy and lively. The band was good. I didn't get how the drinks were better, they were pretty typical. Great marketing.

Great atmosphere and great daiquiris but over crowed as a main tourist haunt but certainly one place to tick off 'the list'

This was a small and very busy bar but the drinks were good and the live music was non stop during my visit.

This was Ernest Hemmingway's favorite bar, so all the decor was dedicated to him, which made it a fun spot to visit! It was a very touristy bar so the drinks were more expensive than you would find at most other restaurants but the daquiris were the best that we had, and the live bands were an added bonus. Definitely... More

This bar may be the biggest tourist attraction in Old Havana. The statue of Hemingway at the bar gets its picture taken every 20 seconds. Margaritas are served even more often. Don't plan on a conversation because of the noise.

Full of tourists, Hemingway would have hated. Didn't go in we could see the crowds. Walk up the street 100 yards and you'll find 2 very nice bars on the junction with Obrapia favoured by Che and Fidel both of which are pleasant, authentic and devoid of tour parties.

The Floridita is little hole-in-the-wall place, made famous by Ernest Hemingway. At mid-afternoon it was elbow to elbow with tourists. The atmosphere is actually quite charming (in a tourist-trap kind of way). Do it, just to have done it once.

Thank Steve G
