The menu has all the favorite Latin dishes, made from scratch. I love vegetables and there and there is plenty to pick from. The bread pudding is to die for. They also serve a good glass of wine.

I used to eat here every day back as a high school senior as it was right down the road from the school. they had great food and decent customer service. I went to college in tampa and was visiting my parents for the weekend and hadn't eaten there in several years. The servers seemed like they didn't want to... More

We ordered sandwiches. I really liked the Cuban bread, but for the money it was very overpriced for just a sandwich. No chips no pickled, nothing. Just a sandwich on a plate.

Compared to other Cuban restaurants we've been to, Havana Cafe is the poorest in food quality, atmosphere and service. I feel bad writing this as they are a proud small business but I feel a responsibility to do so. The ropa vieja is plain, poorly seasoned and sub par steak. Their "signature" appetizer is frozen French fries with ground beef... More

We had a great meal. I had the Mojo Pork and it was enough to take home for another meal. Service was wonderful.

The food was very fresh and very good, we had a salad, a cuban sandwich and black bean soup. Their tortillas were different and very good. The owners son was our waiter and he was very friendly. It is in an odd location but has been there for 12 years. The food was so good, we will definitely go back.... More

We have never had a bad meal here. Loved this place. Sadly we no longer live on that coast. I have Havana House cravings I can't satisfy.

Just got back from a much anticipated but rather disappointing dinner. First ordered a Mojito. Waitress said she thought she could make it, turns out she couldn't cause it wasn't good at all, tasted like club soda with a little mint. Got black bean soup, she got it off the buffet, it was cold. Ordered dinner and noticed she took... More
