Diner Reviews
  • "Never a bad meal, always very enjoyable, and a great value."

  • "Overall Cafe Habana is a nice restaurant, great location, good food, fun atmosphere BUT friendly greetings and service are lacking. Do not choose here if you do not have some time to kill. Both times I have been, we have been ignored by bartenders and severs and both times after patiently waiting for initial greeting, we had to flag someone down. I might refer to friends with a caution flag but doubt we would choose to return."

  • "I am on a strict diet this week and even found the brown rice bowl dinner suitable. The rest of my party loved their different orders. We'll be back often. Live here in Malibu for 25 years."

  • "This used to be better - more glamorous, more vibrant. It has now become quite ordinary. We used to get here once every couple of months. If it hadn't been for my daughter requesting we go this time, I would have quietly forgotten it. I won't be rushing back."

  • "I've been to Cafe Habana for lunch and for dinner, and both have been wonderful. The outdoor seating area is beautiful for afternoons and is lit up at night for a fun atmosphere. The food was perfect! Many reviews said that the menu is ethnically confused; I say there is something for everyone. I've tried the fish tacos, the steak tacos, the chicken enchiladas, and the grilled corn--all have been wonderful."

  • "Enjoyed a casual Friday night dinner. We all had vafious tacos that were done just right. The fish ones were perfectly cooked, but a bit bland. Steak tacos were quite tasty. The menu has lots of choices of starters (corn w/cheese was terrific), salads, and entrees traditional and beyond. The service was perfect, too. We are water drinkers and our glasses were refilled without being asked. I would definitely come back again."

  • "Authentic cuban music is always playing in plant-lined outdoor patio. Food is awesome from the healthy to not so healthy. They have it all! Plus best mojitos in Los Angeles. Never disappointed!"

  • "All was fresh, many organic foods, and gluten free calamarii! Anything can be made with corn tortillas on request."

  • "Had the corn... of course... always have to. Though not quite as special as the last few times... The guac was great as were the fish tacos. And my cocktail was outstanding. Blanking on the name... but it had agave nectar and ginger beer... Delicious. Just a nice comfortable spot where you can usually sit and linger. I thought they had taco specials on Tuesday... but I guess I was wrong. May have to brave the Karaoke night on Wednesdays..."

  • "Everything we ordered was only semi warm. We even sent things back to be reheated. Four of us ordered margaritas and the waitress failed to infirm us we could order by the pitcher which made us feel she wanted to overcharge us. Food was not even average that night.....will not be returning anytime soon."

  • "Wife and I went Friday night (with reservation), were seated right away, and enjoyed dinner. Food and service was fine. Saw two other families we knew--one brought child and one did not. We returned the following night with our daughter (without reservation) and were told there was a 30 minute wait. After 30 minutes, I checked with the hostess, and was told wait would be another 30 minutes. Our 5yr old was getting tired and we decided to go across the street. Although we had a nice experience the first visit, I was disappointed that we wasted time waiting for a table we never got the next visit. We will go to Taverna Tony's or Marmelade Cafe instead."

  • "For the prices this restaurant charges, the food was only average. Small portions and over-cooked shrimp and fish were rather surprising, given this is a sea-side casual dining establishment. Also, there didn't seem to be much in the way of authentic Cuban food choices. Felt more Mexican. I won't be going here for dinner again. The location is better for an early drink and snack in the bar."
