Great sandwiches and Cuban coffee. This is definitely a great Cuban restaurant. The staff is very welcoming, and a pleasure to spend time there.

Sorry Starbucks ! I come in for a Cuban Sol Latte with half the sugar, whenever I can. It is definitely the best latte I have ever had. What a special treat! The Cuban coffee served in a decanter is also very good if you like good strong coffee. Hope you're not in a hurry, it takes about 10 mins,... More

We were here for dinner on a Friday night. Luckily we got there early because after 6 it fills up quickly. The service was impeccable and the food was very good. There were 8 people in our group and everyone enjoyed their meal. It is quite reasonably priced and has a great selection of Cuban food. If you are looking... More

I will begin by saying that I had ever had Cuban food until I tried Havana Kitchen in Old Town Temecula. Since I didn't know what to expect I just tried something that sounded interesting. The item I ordered is called the Guajiro dish. It is such a simple dish, yet full of flavor. It consists of perfectly ripe avocado... More

Whenever we go to Havana Kitchen, I get their "traditional" Cuban sandwich. I can't get past them! That and the sweet plantains! All their food is wonderful and I haven't tasted a bad dish there. Also, be sure to try their espresso drinks. One of the best espressos I have ever had! Really a fun, casual dining experience mixed with... More

You must eat here. Feel free to order anything on the menu because you will not be disappointed. The steak is so tender. The chicken is well flavored. The avocado salad is perfect. Save room for a guava pastry and Cuban coffee. We tried the tableside fresh drip brewed coffee served with milk and sugar...oh my...fantastic!

My wife and I decided to try this place based on the reviews here and on Yelp. It's easy to miss because the signage isn't big like the other restaurants on the street, but it is across the street from Blackbird's. You walk in and it is quite quaint, but very well done. It was very busy when we walked... More

I ordered the combo empanada plate that came with black beans, white rice, and plantains for $7.95. The two beef empanadas were small but tasty and I really loved the plantain bananas which were sweet and fried to a golden brown. For dessert, I was lucky to get the last guava cheese pastry in the display case which was delicious.... More

Thank goodness we have a GREAT Cuban restaurant to "break up" the gastropub cuisine ...the Public House & a few others are worthy but who can eat anywhere repetitively!? The family has burned and crashed .... To know we have such outstanding Cuban food in Old Town is truly a great thing! Emotionally as well as literally. Cuban food is... More

In my opinion the best Cuban food in town outside of my own kitchen. I love that I can enjoy some delicious Cuban food without doing the work. I love the cafe, the music, the staff. Hands down my favorite place to eat in Temecula. Their catering is very good as well, I have used them a few times.
