About Hemingways Bar and Kitchen

uthentic and artisanal food and delicious cocktails.

From 1939 – 1960, Ernest Hemingway lived and documented his time in his second home, Havana, Cuba. He had fallen madly in love with all of its intricacies, cultures and lifestyles. From its hunting and fishing to its nightlife, bars and of course, food. As Papa Hemingway famously said “Don’t bother with churches, government buildings or city squares; if you want to know about a culture, spend a night in its bars” ….Never a truer word was spoken.

Here at Hemingway‘s Bar and Cantina we aim to bring you a piece of the Cuban experience that he knew well, from its street food, grills, Cocktails and Live Music.uthentic and artisanal food and delicious cocktails.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food and cocktails on my visit to Hemingway’s. There is also a Great selection of wines to chose from. Although the menu doesn’t offer as much as other on Town street all meals offered great flavour and good portion sizes. I will definitely be going again!

Great service and atmosphere. The staff made it really relaxed and enjoyable. The only (very minor) criticism were my beef ribs were a touch more done than I would like. A little off melt in the mouth more medium cooked. However, flavour wise it was all spot on. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a different experience for a change.

The staff were very attentive and welcoming. The food was nice but my half jerk chicken was soooo dry, been under the heat lamps for too long. The cocktails weren't very good at all sadly, even though they are even more expensive than the alchemist in town!

Service was excellent, the one plus point. Starters were far too large and did not pack much flavour. Main courses came far too quickly after the starters. The pork shoulder was undercooked , very fatty and cut up in chunks like dog meat. Not nice at all. Every plate was overdressed with an excessive amount of chopped fresh chillies, killing any other flavours. One of our party ordered ice cream with marsh mallows, there were none of the latter. Another of the party wanted an Irish coffee, the server did not know what this was and there was no cream to make one anyway. All in all a great disappointment for the first visit and after that experience will not be visiting again or giving a positive recommendation.

We enjoyed the meal and had a warm welcome and attentive service,However my son felt he would have appreciated an extra chicken and chorizo skewer rather than a heap of salad.also my wife and i felt that the jerk chicken was not spicey enough compared to the last time we ordered this main course here.

Had a lovely evening the food was delicious, a little bit hot (spicey) for a few of us but some sour cream soon sorted us out. Nice atmosphere and good friendly service

Brilliant service and great food and drink. Team took great care of us, in particular one of our party with specific dietary requirements: basically chef cooked a special dish just for him. Above and beyond!

We enjoyed a lovely meal and cocktails with great service, after chatting with the bar manager we found we could ask for a particular rum in our mojito cocktails...the crab starter was really tasty and steak cooked just right...the tacos starter was really fresh and tasty and the jerk chicken is very authentic and quite spicy...really good all round with good portion sizes too! We would definitely recommend Hemingway and will be going back soon...

So pleased that you have asked for feedback and just want to be honest:- We chose the platter as a starter between 2. It was great to try different dishes and everything was tasty and well cooked. The salsa is to die for. For a main we shared the Cuban sandwich and found this to be quite bland and tasteless. We also had a couple of sides. We chose black beans as we've had these both in Cuba and in the Dominican Republic. The beans we were served were not black beans but black eyed beans and were bland and lacked flavour. Nothing like the more traditional beans we've had. We also chose the trio of desserts and could not taste any hint of pineapple in the 'pineapple' cheesecake or the 'pineapple' cake. The Portuguese tart was ok. Staff were fairly attentive and the atmosphere was great. It is great to have a live DJ though would say the music was verging on being a little loud sometimes to enjoy a good natter over dinner. The drinks and cocktails were fab. I would still go back to Hemingways though would probably stick to drinks and nibbles rather than a meal as we were disappointed with the food.

We loved it. The food and service was amazing. The only down side (which all four of us thought) was the music was too loud early on.

I ordered the jerk chicken which was nice but couldn't taste much jerk flavour, just a burnt taste. The service was very good though.
