Relaxed Cuban Experience

I had never even heard of this restaurant prior to our dinner experience. The inside of this establishment is very open and relaxed. It is laid out like a family run cafe. Our waitress greeted us instantly after we were seated. She took our drink orders and explained some of their menu items... read more

Although the service wasn't all that great...I sat with an empty drink for about 45 minutes before the server remembered I asked her for a refill 3 times...the food was excellent!

For these prices, go to the Columbia in Ybor where there's a floor show! I've been eating Cuban food all my life, and this café was recommended by a friend in Gulfport. I had the traditional Chicken with yellow rice, which was okay, but nothing special My hubby had the pork dish. It was "ok." While the meal was okay,... More

Years ago we would drive 40 miles for their Cuban food but the last 3 times over a period of 3 or 4 years it has been going downhill. Wife had the Palomino steak which was average and plantains which were very dry. I had a Cuban sandwich and onion rings which were so greasy it was inedible. We also... More

Wife and I were on our way to a different restaurant in Gulfport when we decided to give the Habana Café a try. We had passed so many times always saying we should try it but passed by. Soooo glad we did, stop that is. Very extensive menu with too many items that tempted the taste buds. Finally I went... More

We picked up take out while visiting the area. There was nothing about this meal I did not love, even the beans and I don't like beans. So much flavour. We will definitely go back and would recommend to anyone.

Awesome Cuban food, wonderful service and great ambience. We all had the $19.95 Cuban 3 small entrée combo, which came with salad, black beans/rice, plantains, 3 Cuban dishes and their FABULOUS Flan.. What a bargain at that price and will be back next time in the St. Pete area.. We could barely eat it all and all thought it was... More

This restaurant far exceeded my expectations. We ordered a plate that had four different items on it for only 1999. The flan was the best I have ever tasted. Situated in a beautiful building. Great staff.

Had a recommendation to try this place from a friend of mine who used to live in the area. We decided to do carryout. We tried the traditional cuban sandwich, the mojo pork, black bean soup, and black beans and rice. All food was fresh and delicious. My wife and I decided the sandwich was not as good as our...
