Awww ... Cuba! Just a mere thought will have your hips swiveling in time to the rich mambo beat, which is only intensified if you happen to be drinking a sweet, rum-soaked mojito. Thinking about jumping a plane to Miami? No need! A Piece of Havana brings the Cuban flavor to your Charlotte stomping grounds.



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!

If you’re looking for authentic Cuban dishes, A Piece of Havana is definitely a location to check out! The food, live entertainment, and dancing make this place so much fun! The ambiance is perfect for a dinner for two or group parties. My husbands surprise birthday dinner was a hit with our family and friends!

We arrived upon our reservation and were seated promptly. The restaurant was fairly empty on a Sunday night with only two other tables there. Food, drinks and dessert were phenomenal. Sunday’s they have $5 sangria glasses , which were delicious. I also had the raspberry mojito and it was amazing. Overall, we had a wonderful night. We will return & recommend to friends.

My parents are Cuban and I grew up in Miami surrounded by Cuban restaurants. The atmosphere at Piece of Habana is very nice and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. Unfortunately, the food was fair at best. My son ordered the bistec de palomilla, I ordered the lechon asado with boiled yuca, and my husband ordered the roasted chicken. All these meals are Cuban staples. Everything was edible but bland.

Everyone wants to have a restaurant that is consistent with service, food quality, and ambiance. This restaurant delivers on those three factors, every time.

I cannot write an unbiased interview. I love this restaurant.

Its location is convenient. Its servers are friendly. The espresso is wonderful.

We chose Piece of Havana for my wife’s 60th birthday after a planned trip to Cuba was cancelled due to hurricanes.
The service was excellent, as was the food and music.
We had the Valenciana paella and it was exceptional.
I will return and recommend Piece of Havana to friends.

This place is perfect for Friday nights. A live Latin band will play, as people dance on the narrow dance floor. Then at 10pm, the dance floor is enlarged and Latin line dancing starts. The food is very good and the Cuban drinks are fresh and perfect. Overall, A Piece Of Havana is one of my favorite places to go on a Friday evening.
