Viva Cafe Habana!
A fun relaxed vibe with good well priced Cuban/Mexican cuisine. The guacamole and chips are additive and there is enough to take home for to next day. We are working our way through the inviting menu....so far everything has been tasty and the portions generous enough to provide lunch the next day. The only negative is parking is challenging especially in spring and summer...lots of people in Malibu!!

Cocktails with the Beautiful People
Located in the Malibu Lumberyard, Cafe Habana is a great spot to rub elbows with LA's upscale beach crowd. A group of girlfriends joined me for birthday lunch and cocktails after a nearby dance workout at Juicy Athletic Moves. Cafe Habana has an interesting Cuban/South and Central American inspired cocktail list with excellent margaritas, mojitos, capirinhas, and my drink which featured muddled jalapenos with rum and grapefruit juice. Order the grilled corn with cotija cheese, lime and chile for starters. The menu includes some lighter salads including a kale caesar as well as fish tacos and a decent coconut flan.

We frequent often for the burger and fries! Grass fed, only meat I will eat. Salads are great too. Cute place, comfortable and relaxed.

Food is always good, atmosphere
Food is always good, atmosphere is always hopping and the service is good. You have to try the corn on the Cobb. Wish they had a Gluten Free option, but can always find something to good eat.

When we don't know where to go for a nice Sat dinner but want to keep casual Habana is always our number one choice. Nice to see Rande and Cyndi there also.. Service is sometimes iffy but food, drink, and people watching make it all worth its while.
Sat we had a sweet 16 party next to us so it got a little loud but we still love the place.

We love Cafe Habana! The food is awesome and you can sit outdoors under their covered patio without getting cold. We like sitting outside best since it's much louder inside.

Don't risk without reservation
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.

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...
