Amazing new restaurant with such quality service it’s hard to compare to! You feel like you are transported to Cuba the second you walk through the front door!! The cigar patio is a nice way to wind down with wine after your meal!

La Bodeguita De Mima is a delightful experience in every possible way. This is the real deal, folks.

Our son was told by actual Cubans that the place is for real. They were not wrong.

The food, decor, service and atmosphere far exceeded our expectations. If you you want real Cuban food and drink, this is the place! You will not be disappointed...

I want to first say from entering to exiting the experience was awesome and amazing at the same time. The customer service from everyone we encountered was top notch/ platinum series. The attention to detail in greeting, serving the food, entertainment and ensuring all our needs were met were over the top. It was my husband's birthday and the manner in which the staff made him feel loved was one we treasured. Our waitresses Alliyah all though extremely busy was beautiful, informed us in detail about all the menu items, and ensured the night was magical. She was the best. Ruben and Ricky the leaders of the establishment know what to do, when to do, and how to do when running a restaurant. They have mastered being servant leaders. They want your experience to be one in which individuals will return and we will. (This is our new favorite restaurant)I am saving the best
for last..... THE FOOD IS So Unbelievable Great! We ate every bite.. If you or any one you know wants an experience like no other this is the place. The Food, Drinks, and Cigars are beyond words
Thanks again for everything. We will be back real soon!
😘❤❤❤

Everything was fantastic! My girlfriend enjoyed a margarita and a mojito, great flavor! I had the pork, it was very tender and delicious. She had the vegetarian empanadas and they were to die for! Sam was our server and he was very attentive and great with recommendations!

Our server Chila (sp?) Was amazing !! Her recommendations were perfect and her attention to us as customers was just right. We never waited for anything. And a special thank you to Bryan our bartender. We couldn't have had better service anywhere!! Great food, great drinks, and great service. And a surprise dessert for our Honeymoon was unexpected but greatly appreciated. Thanks to all!

The Cuban sandwich was amazing. The plantains were some of the best I'd ever head. The mojitos are unbelievable.

This place is an exceptional addition to the Ole Family, and to Louisville.
