This is a small establishment that was busy at breakfast time on a Sunday morning. Food was decent and plenty was served; coffee was good but no rush to provide refill. Wait staff was pleasant. If everything else was full, I would try again.

Stopped into Havana Cabana and had a pleasant experience. I had the special sausage, onions and peppers over rice and thought it was very good and fresh. My husband had the Cuban sandwich which was adequate but have had better. The black beans were excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient and I noticed there was one older man... More

We have been wintering here for the past several weeks. This place is a great place for a good meal with a quiet atmosphere. The prices are very reasonable. We have been here at least once to sometimes two times per week recently. Never had a bad meal. Owner bends over backwards to please...almost always comes by to see if... More

I noticed several decent reviews and decided to try it as we were looking for a casual lunch while touring by bicycle. I believe only the old reviews had any thing passive to say. The beers were refreshing at least. My wife had a passable Greek salad. My eggplant caprese sandwich was tough and flavorless. It was a special which... More

I have to agree with the reviewers who say, "Stay away!" My wife and I tried Havana Cabana for brunch, and it was horrible. We were the only customers, and in hindsight I realize that that should have sounded a warning bell. The orange juice was far from fresh, the coffee weak, and the Eggs Benedict so far from the...

Stopped in for our last breakfast on Ann Maria Island. We were the only ones eating inside and another couple was eating outside. Neat little place. Not sure what a Cuban breakfast sandwich should be but mine was good. Not over priced like a lot of meals we had on our trip. Would I go back? Yes. I think this... More

Went to Havana Cabana for lunch - service was good, but food was mediocre at best. We didn't particularly enjoy nor find the 'authentic' Cuban sandwiches all that authentic.

This is not heavily advertised, nor will it pop out at you when you drive by. But make the effort to find it and you will be impressed. Their Cuban sandwiches are so delicious!!! They use the Cuban bread from the famous La Segunda bakery in Tampa. They even have a turkey version, if you don't eat pork. They take... More

Food was ok. Beer only by the bottle. Waitress was under the influence of something. Won't go back. A bit over priced and not real authentic Cuban.

Terrible, I mean seriously bad. We placed our order and went to pick it up, despite the menu saying they deliver (we asked if they deliver and she said no). Once we got there we quickly realized that the lady/owner was completely wasted (good thing she did not deliver the food). Not just tipsy, totally drunk. Once we got our... More
