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

I just found this place - recommended by a friend. Don't let it's location in a nondescript strip mall fool you; Havana Mania is is hoppin, and for good reason. The food is excellent and tastes "clean", meaning, no MSG or high sodium hangover two hours later, the decor is nice - it doesn't feel like you're in a strip... More

We just move to Santa Monica and try other Cuban restaurant, but no one like Habana Mania. Good flavor. Don't forget to request Tostones with the perejil sauce. With the sauce with the bread. Orgasmic!!!

Went to this restaurant with some business associates and to be honest, did not know what to expect. This is the first real Cuban food I've had and it was fantastic. From the plantains to the roast pork, the food is incredible. I just wish i had the forethought to try more appetizers and experience a broader array of food.... More

My partner and I travel a lot to LA and stay always at Westin by the airport. International food is good and airplane food is less than tolerable. For that reason sometime when we do our overnight in Hotel close to LAX we look for food with latin flavor. This restaurant is just 5 miles from LAX. The food is... More

My wife is from Ecuador so we're always looking for good Latin American food. This is one of the good ones! Even though this place is 50 miles from our house we never pass it up when we fly out of LAX since it's on the way up from South Orange County. We've eaten here at least 20 times now... More

They have a million mojito flavors! also the 20 buck deal with one appetizer and a choice of 2 entrees is way worth it. I recommend sweet plantains and the pork, its shredded with big chunks. All entrees have black beans and rice of course.(They even suggested for vegetarian to just order meat on the side) I got 2 meals... More
