I really liked Havana Café there is indoor and outdoor seating. The staff is very friendly and the service is good. We were there for drinks and appetizers. Both were good. One person ordered the shrimp and there was enough to share. Next time I'm in Everglades City I will definitely come back.

Great cuban food, nice outdoor setting and a welcome alternative to hush puppies and french fries. Like so many places in the area not open in the summer.

This place is perfect. Best breakfast, best cafe con leche, best location at the end of the road in Chokoloskee. Take a sunrise drive into the Everglades and stop here for breakfast.

I found this tiny restaurant to be an oasis in the everglades. The owners seem very proud of the delicious food they serve. Sadly they are closed in the summer. Great place for an authentic Cuban meal by a friendly staff

Friends and I stopped here at the recommendation of our boat tour guide from Everglades N.P. The food was very good along with the service. Outside seating was clean; many of he seats (from what we observed) were hard wood chairs or stone, so may get a little uncomfortable over time. Overall, very nice place that I would recommend for...

We sat outside eating the fish that we just caught and had great sangria. we loved it so much that my husband and son went back for breakfast a couple of days later. they had a great meal but a grumpy waitress. Still giving it 5 stars because the food and experience outweighs the mood of one employee.

Since this was the only restaurant on this island, we tried it for lunch while visiting the Everglades. The Cuban sandwich was delicious. My grandsons were pleased with their food, too.The staff was friendly and the atmosphere inviting.
