Great Cuban food and Mojitos

This is a neighborhood Cuban place that not many know about. The food is really good. You can expect the usual collection of Cuban items, but done better than at most places. You can tell the food will be good when they bring you high quality bread before the meal (not the usual mealy stuff you get... read more

I pulled up the menu online. They didn't recognize what I was ordering from their menu. Nonetheless, I was craving Cuban, so we drove over there, went in, and ordered from the menu. We were just planning to take away and did so, but it was a mistake. There as a couple (Candi Sosa and Victor Cegarra) playing music in... More

The owner will warmly welcome you to this quaint establishment. He's always there! Tasty food, at a great price is waiting for you. Like your food spicy, order it "El Diablo" and it will be marvelously "hot". The mojito's are very good, and very reasonably priced. Platanos (fried plantains) are available as garnish for many of the entrees -- a... More

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 delightful Italo-American wife make sure... 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
