A Piece of Havana
We reward our guests by combining the native Siboney staples of corn, peanuts, and yucca with the Spanish accents of rice and olive oil. Alongside relocated Floridian Cubans, Belkis and Juan Plasencia, is a chef who together create garlic and herb-infused delights of the empanadas, moros y cristianos (black beans mixed with white rice), and of course the classic Cuban sandwich. Feel free to take full advantage of the take-out and coffee-to-go bar and drop by for live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Being our Guest is caliente!
Stewed Shredded Beef / Ropa Vieja
Boiled in its natural juices, shredded, marinated and cooked to perfection with garlic, onions, and peppers
Tostones / Tostones
Lobster, shrimp, clams, mussels, scallops, calamari, fish, garlic, onions, three color peppers and dark beer all mixed with the best seasoned yellow rice
Great, friendly service. Food delicious and pricing reasonable. The paella was delicious as was the simmered pork. Would definitely recommend.
Service was a bit off compared to my usual experience, but the restaurant was very busy…
Muy buena lo recomiendo
The food wasn’t bad. The reason I gave 3 stars for food is because I really wanted the Snapper Fish and they didn’t have it although it was on the menu. That alone ruined the experience for me. My husband on the other hand really enjoyed his meal. We’ll go back again.
Absolutely wonderful and staff. We had authentic Cuban cuisine. This place is amazing!!!
We were sat at a table next to everyone standing at the bar, not my favorite. Everyone was working really hard, music was a great vibe to have on Saturday night. Our server was awesome can't remember his name. Food was average, drinks were awesome!
The seafood dish we ordered came without fish and scallops which were listed in the menu and when I asked about it I didn’t feel like they address my concern and disappointment. Also the meal came out staggered but overall a good experience. The music is the main reason I would go back but I would not pay $41 again for any one dish due to my issue with the seafood entree and and how it was handled.
It was an awesome night to chill with friends and have some drinks
I loved the restaurant decorations and the vibes definitely takes you to Cuba!!! The food was good I was expecting more varieties but overall was good!!!
Awesome good, great atmosphere and live music on the weekends
Lots of fun and great food, if you want to eat and dance, this is the right place. El Konsentido will be there next on April 10, 2021.
Excelente services and great food. Music is great.
We did a reservation, and When I get there it was no table available, very disorganized.
The food was cold. And the drink over price. Very bad experience.
Best spot in Charlotte. Great food with a live band!
Separe una mesa para dos y me dieron la peor cual es el chiste que hacer una reservación y te den la más fea y el servicio de bebidas demoraba en llegar. La comida deliciosa pero repito el servicio de reservación para nada bueno ni creo que volvería hacer.
Valentine’s date was nice. Food was good. Music was good.
Way to loud, very slow service and food was just ok, I don’t know if it was just because they were busy but service took 1.25 hours for mains, and a 30 min wait for a 2nd drink. Singer was so loud we had to yell to even order. I checked with a decibel meter on my phone and he managed to hit 105dbs, loud enough to be painful.
We went to Piece of Havana for Valentines Day. The food was absolutely fantastic (best paella I have had in a LONG time!). Everything was decorated beautifully and the live music was a lot of fun! Can’t wait to go back soon!
Great food and enjoyable place but the music was way too loud for the evening. Plus there was NO social distancing anywhere inside
Delicious food, great service and live music. Mojitos are awesome
Hice reservación para un cumpleaños al llegar al sitio no tenían información de que había hecho una reservación y no había música no habían muchas cosas que mis invitados querían.para que ofreces un menú que no tienes cosas disponibles y el ambiente pésimo no tenían el ambiente que siempre hay por eso lleve. La cumpleañera pero fue una decepción y vergüenza con mis invitados y la verdad no creo que regrese
The food was good but the music was great. Even though most of the songs played by the live band were American played in salsa style, it was very fun. We'll go back for sure.
Nice place. Food was good.
Came in to my reservation time, looked like they were having a party in there. Stood around for 10 minutes and no one came to greet us at all. No one asked us if we wanted to have a seat, we did not get to eat. So we ended up just leaving. No social distancing, No facemasks on anyone in there. It looked like a club, not a restaurant.
I listened to the waitress and ordered oxtail. I should have know better. The meat was tender but super fatty! The atmosphere is fun but it’s really loud and hard to talk.
I would try it again but maybe go earlier and enjoy dinner and then linger with desert and enjoy the music.
We enjoyed going to a piece of Havana for the food and atmosphere the only problem that we’ve ever had there is the service is very slow and the noise level from the band is so loud we cannot hardly talk to each other other than that it’s a great place to go and eat
Love this place! Food is fantastic!
We came on a Saturday and there was live music which was a pleasant surprised. We saw many families get up and dance.
We ordered the starter, which included things like croquettes, pulled pork, tostones and plantains.
The prices were very reasonable from $12-$15 a dish and we even took some home. I really enjoyed a piece of Havana and will come back again.
Excellent, friendly service and great food. The place was about half full, due to COVID restrictions, but still a good crowd. Our fifth visit.
No social distancing. Tables were all filled with very little space between them. Other than that it’s a wonderful place to enjoy your food with great music
Initially very slow service with small crowd..waited about 20 mins (with reservation) to get water and order appetizer. Manager realized we were upset and came over to apologize. After that, we received prompt service and enjoyed delicious meal for the evening.
I love the Flavor in the OX Tails and the side items were great as well.
Nice area lots of parking. Good food with a several items on menu to choose from.
Excellent food and service!! Everytime I go to Charlotte this is my first stop.
Enjoyed the live music but it was a bit too loud to hold a conversation with the table.
Nice socially distanced place to eat and listen to live music. Can be loud
1st time here since the pandemic started. Tables are now spread far apart versus how it used to be. Tables were pretty close and hard to get around before. Service was good and good was good as usual. A great place to get some Cuban cuisine.
Everything was very clean and the service was great.
when I put moderate for noise level, it's because my family and I enjoyed the music. I felt that the waitress slipped up a little, meaning she wasn't as attentive to us. The manager kept coming to make sure my family was satisfied. However, food and the environment was amazing! Will definitely come back.
It was great
