Flavorful, welcoming, cozy
Flavorful, welcoming, cozy and aromatic....a great little West Village hideaway with pungent flavors and warm Latin vibes. A winner.

Fun restaurant with good food if you know what to order. The empanadas and Gambas are great appetizers. Sea bass, chicken Maggie, and the steak are good entre choices. They have a Cuban sandwich that is really good, but isn't on the normal dinner menu. They'll sometimes make it for you if you ask. If you are with a group they will serve pitchers of mojitos.

This place has the best Cuban cuisine in manhattan
The oxtail is the best I've ever had in a Latin restaurant
The sparkling sangria is exquisite and I look forward to the
Watermelon sangria in the summer.

I made a last minute reservation at Havana Alma de Cuba and it was a get choice! Our party of four was very pleased with all our choices - sangria, pork empanadas, pollo al estilo, and a few beef dishes, topped off with churros y chocolate for dessert - all so delicious! The atmosphere is fun with live Cuban music which is a tad loud, but still great. We all look forward to going back.

Great Cuban food/Reasonable prices
We started with their sautéed garlic shrimp which was perfect. I then enjoyed the Bistec De Palomillo which was a pounded sirloin served with sautéed onions, rice and black beans ($19).

brilliant for brunch
well executed traditional Cuban specialties are perfect for brunch. The cazuelita is a standout. The 10.95pp all you care to have brunch beverages has to be one of the the city's great bargains. great vibe and warm service.

Fun Girls Night
I was able to get a last minute reservation at 8pm for a Saturday night which was fantastic. We were a table of 3 and one of the members of our party was running very late. On a busy night like a Saturday they were great about it. We sat right away and did not pressure us to order anything until she arrived. There was a live band playing which made the atmosphere very lively. The drinks were good - I didn't taste it but I'm told the Perfect Pear was pretty strong. We had the Lechon Asado, Churrasco and Vegetarian Paella. The portions were all large and I thought very tasty. Would definitely come back here and recommend it. The only negative was they would not let you substitute sides.

Amazing authentic Cuban food
I stumbled across this place several years ago and have been a huge fan ever since. Saturday nights they have an amazing classic guitarist/singer, and percussionist, who along with the mojito with sugar cane stick, chorizo with carmelized onions, and paella with the works, we felt transported. It was so intimate and romantic, and next time, we plan on trying the outdoor garden. I am taking my discerning Cuban friend there for her birthday, because I know she will be impressed. To me, this is the best Cuban restaurant in the city.

Fun live music and legit Cuban food
It has a fun atmosphere with live latín music than can get loud at times but is fun. The food was really good quality and it really did feel Like dinning in Cuba.
