We flew into LAX last night and wanted quick convenient excellent Cuban food. Havana Mania was exactly what we were after! The mojitos were an A+! The roast pork was cooked perfectly. Excellent sides, live music, and a very friendly staff made this a perfect night!

This place has been around over 20 years. It's one of those places you drive by as you exit the 405 and not notice. The fact that it is in a strip mall and next to a Subway should not detract you. The appetizers are delicious. The yucca with pork chunks is amazing. The Cuban hamburger is very tasty (especially... More

I understand the beef here is a knock out but as a veggie, I can only trust my guests. The atmosphere is often like a party. They have a full bar and often some of the best live music you can hear around these parts and don't be surprised if you occasionally see people dancing in the isles. Great place... More

Amazing Cuban food. Service was a little bit slow, and the restaurant was not busy, but once the food came, it tasted very authentic and good. Will come back again.

Delicious fresh flavors, family friendly atmosphere. We dined on a Sunday night with live music! The Cuban fare balanced flavor with fresh healthy whole food. We were delighted and want to return soon.

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 in most places).... 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
