I had the Cuban Sandwich, husband enjoyed the classic enchiladas. Highly recommend the mojito (coconut) and the margarita. Also had the chocolate dessert. Great intimate surroundings, super food, overall wonderful meal.

Took server a while to get to us. She was a fine server but not very warm, used very few words. Cozy place that can make accommodations for groups too.

We sat at the bar and had a cocktail before we were seated. The bartender, who also was our server was wonderful. The cocktails we had were bright and flavorful, We tried the Guayabera, the Platino Havana, Don Julio Blanco mojito and a Grand Margarita. For entrees, we had Carne Con Tequila and the Cuban Roasted Pork. Both dishes were incredible!!!! We had stopped in for drinks a couple of times before, this was our first dining experience there. We could not have been happier!! The service, drinks, and food are exceptional. They are also very fairly priced for the area. If you are in the area, do yourself the favor of dining here. We can not wait to return.

My favorite is called "ropa vieja" (literally old clothes, but don't let that scare you off). It is the same food that makes up the Venezuelan "pabellon criollo" as well; probably has a comparable dish throughout Latin America. This time we also tried the "vaca frita" (literally, fried cow) - the beef was fried and served with a beans/rice mix (that's what "congri" is). I love the cooked plantains and even my husband - who does not like bananas - agreed they were good. We also tried the soups. I thought the black bean was excellent. The tortilla soup was a bit spicy so depends on what you like. This restaurant has a fun, energetic vibe; it's not the quiet romantic date kind of place, but still good for a date if you want to have Cuban food. They also can accommodate groups.

There were 4 of us and we all ordered different things then shared. Everyone liked everything. The plantain crusted halibut was the most unique. All agreed they would go back again. The only warning I have is the booths are a little narrow. We’re not big people and it felt a bit tight side by side

I’m Colombian and he thought that I’d like to have some Cuban food since is the closest we could find nearby. HE WAS RIGHT! And Havana was the best choice! We had an amazing night. The food was great, drinks were great (there was so many different drinks to try so we had several), service was phenomenal and the place is fantastic. We will definitely be back soon.

Overall we would recommend this as a family restaurant or and night out with a date.
