Not as good as in the past. The food portions were small for the price, and they seemed to try to rush you through dinner. will not go back

I enjoy the food and outdoor seating at this place. The mojitos aren't bad either - huge fan of the variety. It isn't the cheapest place to eat but Miami Beach is pricey.

Was very lively and loud but the location was very good and service as well. Waiter gave good advice and the fish was excellent. Tight seating but we made friends with some people next to us and made it even more enjoyable.

For a chain restaurant the food was surprisingly good and service was great. Only improvement could have been the drinks. The mojitos were disappointing. They tasted watered down and not made fresh. Even my friends from North Carolina weren’t fans. Other than that it was a good experience and value.

This was a great experience from top to bottom. Our Cuban bartender suggested we go to this, the original Havana 1957, as the original is the best. We've been to the Ocean Drive spot in years past and it is also good, but not AS good. The signature chicken dish is absolutely unbelievable. How do they put so much flavor into that tender, juicy chicken? It's a must eat. Highly recommend this spot.

Tables are a bit pushed together so it’s difficult avoid your neighbors conversation. Waiter forgot our appetizer. Otherwise the food is authentic and well seasoned. Staff was friendly.

We loved our meal here. Service was very good and welcoming. Lots of birthday celebrations. Cubano sandwich was HUGE and delicious. Even the basics like plantain chips and black beans were on point. Especially in South Beach was nice to find a great meal in this price range— highly recommend!

Very loud, not “energetic”, just loud. They include 18% service charge in bill and do not mention it. A little off-putting.

We were a big group and the server who attended the table was excellent: fast, nice

For a restaurant in Miami Beach at a touristy location I wasn't expecting much but the food was excellent, just toned down a little so the tourists can enjoy
