We ordered the Vaca Frita, I was disappointed since it appeared that it was overcooked, Black beans and rice were great, Mojitos were DELICIOUS, we have had better food at La Carreta or Versayes in Miami. We will be back but be apprehensive to order the Vaca Frita again.

Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food at Casavana. The décor is very modern without leaving its Cuban roots and I found the staff to be prompt and professional. We opened with mariquitas, then had the lechon with arroz and frijoles negros and platanos maduros. Everything was seasoned to perfection and the quantity of the portion resulted in... More

I prefered casavana better than la Carreta. La Carreta has greasey food but this place was fantastic and I cook traditional home cooked cuban food just like my mom. If you want home cook cuban food give Casavana a try you will not be disapointed. I had the ban con bistec with white rice and black beans very tasty.

Whenever we visit Miami, we always stop here. The food is great; the service is not, but that's always expected. Our favorite entrees: bistec empanizado (breaded, fried steak), vaca frita (fried beef). Definitely order the white rice and black beans as one side and platanos maduros (sweet, fried plantains) or tostones (double-fried, salted plantains) as the other. Our favorite sandwiches:... More

I ordered the breakfast sandwich and was surprised how ordinary and plain the sandwich was. It was as uninspiring as an egg sandwich at Denny's or McDonalds. There was nothing wrong with it; the ham was good, but nothing that would identify it as Cuban. Same for the bread. I'm giving 4 stars since the fault was mine for ordering... More

We regularly order delivery from here and sometimes dine in. Today was a delivery day. AWFUL! So many corners cut. I actually had to check if indeed there was steak in my steak sandwich, that's how thin it was. The Miami sandwich, same thing. Come on guys, everyone is hurting in this economy, however, if you can't afford the ingredients... More

My husband, my mother and myself, really enjoyed our dinner at Casavana. The informal restaurant is located at Town & Country Mall. My mother ordered the "rabo encendido" a Monday evening special, which she loved. My husband and I, enjoyed the churrasco with white rice and black beans. He also had the ripe plantains (maduros) and I had the yuca... More

Our visit to the Kendall, FL Casavana was, for us, a very unique experience. Having traveled to the Caribbean a few times, we have sampled much of that cuisine but we've always wanted to try Cuban. We've had some so-called "Cuban-style" sandwiches, etc. in SW Florida but never true Cuban dishes. This visit allowed us to taste two wonderful dishes,... More
