Four of us came here based on good reviews. Everyone got food except for me. I wanted soup. Waited and waited a long time. They said it was some error in their computer system. It wasn't busy so I don't understand how they could just forget me. We went to some wineries and we came back cuz I really wanted... More

I had never tasted Cuban food before. By the number of patrons waiting to order we knew it was a local favorite. Anyone living here suggested it as well. I went back a second day to eat again. The staff was friendly, service was exceptional and the sal latte was to die for!

The place is tucked away in a corner of this beautiful Old Town Temecula. We decided to try out the Havana Kitchen Restaurant. The restaurant itself is clean. Less than 20 tables and a small alcove for a teeny private party of maybe 6 people. The food is good but it needs a little bit more Cuban flare. Service was... More

Made a day trip to Temecula during a stay in Palm Springs. The food and coffee at this casual restaurant were excellent. Great place to stop for lunch if you are in the area.

Do you remember the days when Temecula used to be corporate chain restaurant hell and then only thing you could get was a Denny's, Mcdonalds, or Taco Bell? Not any more! Old Town is a bustling place with many great places to eat, most of them open late, and Havana Kitchen is a prime example of the good things happening... More

We go there so often that they know our order 90% of the time! Love this place and it inspired our last vacation to Spain (only because we didn't agree on the best way to get into Cuba!)

Oh how I love this place. Everything about it. Love the little sitting room with sofas to sit and chat with friends over a delicious cup of coffee. Love the Havana Chicken Bowl, love the fried plantains, love the tall bar type tables and chairs, ( they do have regular height tables if this is not your thing) Cute little... More

The pricing is reasonable, the food the best Cuban I've had. A little mix up on serving and one dish did not arrive and had to be ask for. But otherwise quite enjoyable.

We live one city away, started started going to Havana Kitchen Cafe before they had their beer & wine license. We are wine members at Lorimar Wineries down the street. We would always take bottle in and have it with our meal. We love the food so much we ate four times in one week. They also have really nice... More
