This isn't a fancy place, but a fun place to get reasonably priced Cuban food. I love the Bistec de pollo, the drunken shrimp, and several other dishes. Served with black beans, rice, and plantains. You get plenty if fits with your order and all meals come with buttered Cuban bread. It's a great place to take the family and... More

We recently found this while driving to Gulfport and decided to stop. Growing up in Southwest Miami I have a love for Cuban Coffee and food but find it hard to find where we are living currently. So, I am always willing to try anyplace I can find that offers "authentic" Cuban fare. The decor of Habana Cafe is fantastic,... More

My husband has eaten here with his Aunt several times, and he said it was decent. One Saturday, I only wanted a cafe con leche to go, and stopped in. Took them a long while to "prepare" my coffee and by prepare I mean using the microwave. I knew it would probably not be good nor fresh. Horrible! Had to... More

We had no idea what a precious gem we would find on our trip to St Pete Beach! The restaurant we set out for one night was closed & the restaurant owner pointed us to the Habana Cafe - man are we glad he did! They opened our palette to some at amazing Cuban cuisine & some great service! We... More

We really enjoyed the food. Pork was fantastic. I had the pork sandwich and really enjoyed every bite. My only complaint, service was real slow.

Wow. This place is old school and boy am I happy about that. You sit in a vintage dining area with high ceilings. You are surrounded by the looks and aromas of the menu entries. Prices are good and the food is better. So, if are looking for a great meal, look here. And, if you are one to enjoy... More

I really dont like leaving poor reviews but I just had too about this place. The staff was very friendly and the location looked nice and clean. The bread and flan where the only tasty food from our order. To start off i am Cuban and always make it a mission to stop at one Cuban restaurant while on vacation.... More

If you are looking for authentic Cuban food, stay away. The receiving hostess was nice, but does not speak a word of Spanish, did not even knew what a materva was. Granted, she is not the server, but she tried to fill in because after waiting several minutes no one came to our table, although there were 3 to 4... More

fantastic authentic cuban food at excellent prices. service can be slow but is probably due to the home cooked style meals. beer and wine available at reasonable prices. come early or make a reservation as the locals crowd up the joint most nights. no live music, no view ... just come for the food and you won't be disappointed. take...
