Inspired by the faded glory of Old Havana in Cuba, Havana opened its doors September 1996 in one of Vancouver’s most diverse neighborhoods. Havana is a unique part of Vancouver's cultural landscape, as it houses a Restaurant, Theatre and Gallery, all under the same roof.

The Restaurant offers Nuevo Latino Cuisine and authentic Cuban cocktails in a funky, distressed, casual setting. Havana has a large well-heated all-weather award winning patio that is situated directly across from Grandview Park with a view of the city skyline and the Coastal Mountain Range.

Havana Gallery is a contemporary art gallery that showcases local and international artists of all disciplines. A new show opens every two weeks on Sunday at 4:00 pm and everyone is welcome to attend. Havana Gallery receives no government funding and is solely supported by the Havana Restaurant and sales of art.

Had a great experience at Havana. Food was fresh and delicious. Service was awesome. Our server, Carla was great! The restaurant is spacious and comfortable. Will be going back for happy hour on the patio!

Good food but a little overpriced. It was packed so it was great we had a reservation 😉 Going back for the patio and margaritas in the summer! Great drinks all around.

I made a reservation for my birthday this past weekend and showed up a bit late. The hostess was able to hold our table (we called on the way) AND was able to accommodate 5 more people as we had some unexpected people join us. We had Jamie as a server and she was FANTASTIC! For a large table of 10-12 ordering appies, drinks and entrees, I am grateful we had her! The food was phenomenal (paella, mussels, 7 layer dip, garlic fries, jambalaya...), the drinks were brilliant (sangria and mojito pitchers especially) and the ambiance, as always, was perfect. Love it here!

We went to Havana's for my husbands bday, was extremely fun! we had a great waiter that didn't rush us, we were there before a play and had lots of time to kill... I ordered the mussels OMG so yummy, along with some corn bread. My husband had the Jambalaya and he ate every last bit of it ! I highly recommend the mojitos! I asked for it light on the sugar and they were delicious. We shared the crème Brule for dessert and was also fantastic. I will be going there again ... FOR SURE!

We had the enchiladas and it was excellent. The happy hour menu is also great. Overall great service, solid food and good value. Three with beer and an appy went for around 80 bucks which is pretty reasonable.

So enjoyed our dining experience. I booked there as we were going to the theatre. Knew nothing about restaurant so was very happy the restaurant was so great. Vegan options available for a couple at our table. Food was great..dessert was fabulous. Our waitress was lovely. Will definitely recommend and come back again. Thank you.

Great Cubano. Waitress was a little quick to take our apps and drinks before they were done.

We very much enjoyed our dinner at Havana. The only complaint is that we felt a little rushed: we had were there early in order to get to a show after dinner. Wine was poured and we'd barely had time to breathe before all of the food arrived - appetizers and mains at the same time. It was clear that they wanted the table. The food was delicious and service very good. Would have liked the opportunity to linger!

Carla made our pre-theatre dining experience laudable, ably assisted by her Aussie colleague. Super friendly staff who work together as a team to get food out hot and fresh. Lots of vegetarian choices, authentic nibbles, and shareable plates. Careful- some dishes have a bit of spice, including the fries. Unpretentiously presented plates, and even better value if you have tickets to the Cultch for that date. The Apple-pear upside down dessert combined pure perfection of flavours! Sunny days make for lazy patio dining with pitchers of sangria or beer...

Great food and atmosphere. Enjoyed my fish tacos and loved the chips and salsa.

The seafood bouillabase was not flavorful and for 20.00 there was not much going on. I was very disappointed. Did not say anything . No salt and pepper on the table. I got more bread than seafood...... for 20.00.

A bit frantic upon entry but staff were friendly and service oriented, noisy environment which quietened as we were there. Quaint decor, fast food service, friendly patrons, good food. Good discounts for Happy Hour and possible el fresco dining depending upon weather. Went for pre-theatre dinner before Christmas.
