La Bodeguita del Medio: “The little bar in the middle of the block.” 

Since 1997, La Bodeguita del Medio has been a friendly destination in the heart of Palo Alto, a refuge for locals, travelers, dignitaries, and dreamers. Taking inspiration from the legendary original in Havana, our Palo Alto location offers neighborhood hospitality combined with a vibrant Cuban influence. Enjoy fresh seafood, tender and flavorful meat dishes, specialty cocktails, great wines from around the world, and an extensive selection of fine rums and cigars. Relax in the warm ambiance of the dining room, enjoy a spirited discussion in the bar, sip a glass of aged rum in the Divan, or unwind with a fine cigar on our outdoor patio. Meet a friend at La Bodeguita del Medio...see you soon for mojitos!
