Family vacation destination dinner

Visiting St Petersburg and found this place. Food was great and staff was friendly. The cream cheese flan was so good too. I enjoyed it and would go back.

This Gem is definitely one you want to visit. Staff was friendly and the food was spot on. We had a variety off the menu including the pork, a cuban and a grilled chicken sandwich. They were all good size portions and perfectly seasoned. Black beans were yummy as well. Stop in you won't be disappointed.

This place has high ratings and I'm stumped as to why. The food was poor both times we went (we thought the first might have been a fluke so retried). Soggy cuban sandwiches, overly salty mains, poor service, and no real ambiance (noisy). They seated us upstairs and promptly forgot us so we had to keep leaning over the deck... More

Habana Cafe is such a quirky little place. Everything that I've had -- except the black beans -- is delicious. The pulled pork, cuban, and all of their dinner entrees and specials are delicious. Warning though, if you wait too late in the evening, the arroz con polo will be gone. It's only cooked on the weekends and is delicious!... 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

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 perfectly. She was very helpful and knowledgeable.... 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.
