One of my Favorites

Oh how I love this place! Everything I have tasted is yummy but my favorite is Havana Chicken Plate. They carry Materva and cooked plantains! They are closed on Mondays. And parking is definitely a problem. You can park in the parking garage and walk if you have plenty of time.

I love the steak bowl. It is a great value. The plantains served with the meal are spectacular. I love that they expanded the restaurant.

Love this place, it's great for casual dining. It has a comfy and casual atmosphere. You order at the counter then hopefully find a seat, that's the only downfall to this place is the seating. There seems to be an odd assortment of chairs and tables. They serve enough variety of items that your sure to find something you'd like.... More

This is a great place for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, coffee. The food is savory and delish. Incredible serving sizes for walk up bistro style eats. I always get coffee here, we take a bag to take home as well and has been our favorite coffee now for the past couple of years.

Best experience in all departments. Everything was perfect: food, drinks, service. Located on a side street with sketchy parking, keep looking and you will find a parking spot. Worth the hassle. Very friendly and helpful staff for all your needs.

Havana Kitchen definitely has a great location. It is impressive to see the number of cars, where parking reminds me of some areas in San Francisco minus the heavy toll one must pay over there to be able to park, of course weekends in Old Town is buzzing with heavy traffic, which undoubtedly is great news for business in the...

While strolling along the streets in Old Town Temecula this past Sunday we discovered The Havana Kitchen Café, what a delightful place. We loved the décor, and they even had outside seating. We opted for inside and decided to just order a glass of beer, but after watching all the other customers get their food orders we decided to order... More

Had the vegetarian plate, happy hour sangrias, and veggie empanadas. Avocado salad was delish. Beans were nice and tasty. Yucca in mojo sauce was delicious and rice was nice and fluffy plantins super fresh. Veggie empanadas were very good nicely seasoned and not at all greasy will return soon.

I always get the Ropa Vieja here and it is always great, always! The coffee is also sweet and strong, exactly like I prefer. The flan is another consistent staple in my order.
