Old Havana Cardiff

216 user reviews 4

A taste of Cuba in the heart of Cardiff, Old Havana is serving up Central American-inspired tapas dishes and punchy mixes. This place is known for its huge rum selection, so opt for an el Castro to enjoy a generous measure of the sugarcane spirit mixed with red vermouth and orange bitters.

Vivo Latino

1 user review 5

This independent bar in Cardiff amps up the carnival vibes on the weekend when local revellers arrive en masse to fiesta the night away. Inspired by the cuisine of South America, Vivo Latino's menu is a fusion of flavourful dishes, all to be washed down with signature pisco sours and caipirinhas.
