The BEST Authentic Cuban food in Los Angeles

I am half Cuban. I looked for a real Cuban restaurant in Los Angeles for years before finally finding Havana Mania. No need to look further. This restaurant is the real thing with a real Cuban owner. He is always there to oversee everything and you will be made to feel special. He and his... read more

This place serves good food quickly with minimal fuss. The ambiance is sort of 70's bar/diner so don't expect a vision of old Havana. Prices are reasonable and the chicken (all types) are fantastic.

After a performance that six of us attended; we went to Havana Mania in Redondo Beach, CA. A friend of mine had gone there once before and liked it. Normally, I do not like Cuban food; however, this was about the best Cuban food that I ever tasted. My meal was just delicious and we got great service. It was... More

It is just okay to try cuban food once. We just were not impressed to ever go back. There are much better places for cuban food around town and worth driving farther to get better food.

Best Cuban food in the South Bay and trust me, I know my food. Owners are very nice and friendly. Happy Hour prices are good. Mojitos are superb! Make sure you order some Yuca con mojo, delish... Arroz con Pollo is the best I EVER had (other than the one my grandma used to cook of course). Their Ox tail... More

Joined friends for Sunday dinner. Enjoyed superb drinks while listening to duo who were very entertaining. Food was great. Started with sampler appetizers. We ordered three entrees and all were savory. Ended with flan and tres leche cake. Wonderful atmosphere and wait staff.

Start with an interesting, fairly priced menu. Add a wide selection of drinks. Serve with friendliness and efficiency. Season perfectly. Give portions that make you too full for dessert. (But I wanted to try the tres leche cake!) I will be back.

Walked in for one of their great Lunch Specials. Found that the food portions are equally filling. Great Cuban Cuisine.

Looked for something in the area before our flight home. Don't let the area fool you... It's a gem! Mango salad is incredible. Had the platter for 2 which had pork, beef, chicken and shrimp. The meat was a little dry and not spicy but the shrimp was amazing. Servers are great, manager was helpful, they explain the meals to... More
