La Bodeguita del Medio

About La Bodeguita del Medio

La Bodeguita del Medio, just off London's High Street Kensington, must be Spanish for 'blinding mojitos' as it is inspired by the home of the original. This gorgeous restaurant honours the legendary La Bodeguita del Medio in old Havana where Hemingway drank, smoked and dreamt up his manly prose in the company of stars and artists. The décor seduces you with classic Cuban colours, fabulous photo montages of Cuba adorning the walls, passionate Cuban music pulsing away, authentic Cuban bar and a fantastic terrace. The menu draws on true Cuban dishes with historic and modern international influences, including brilliant tapas and gorgeous grills. Global wine list weighted toward the Spanish-speaking nations, Cuban cigars, and special wine dinners are inviting details, but the perfect mojitos and friendly service will earn your Fidelity. So authentic, the Cuban ambassador is a regular.
