Some wonderful Cuban food!!

We had some of the best Cuban food at the Havana House Cafe. We lived in the Keys so have frequented many Cuban restaurants. Also husband's family from Cuba. Had an outstanding waitress on this very rainy Monday night a few weeks ago. The Flan and the bread pudding were an outstanding end to a... read more

In passing we happened upon Havana House Cafe...What a great find! We had been craving a great Cuban Sandwich and thats just what we got, savory meat, well stacked in the pressed sandwich, flavorful and moist with a nice touch of seasoning. For the heck of it we also ordered their special tacos as appetizers, and that was right on... More

We arrived at noon on a Saturday and there were only two other cars in the parking lot. I should have listened to my inner voice and turned around . The place is small but seemed clean. The menu was limited and in my opinion over priced. My wife ordered Cuban chilli over rice( $10.00 ) and I ordered a... More

Outstanding food and very friendly service. We could not be happier with our dining experiences here. We came to the area for a 7-day vacation. This was our first stop from the airport. In 7 days we dined here 4 times and had take-out another day. Each meal was fantastic. The fish was some of the freshest we've ever had.... More

I had great hope for this restaurant, but the Pressed Cuban and the bowl of Chicken Chili (special of the day) were both on the bland side. The Yucca fries were crispy on the out side and soft and fluffy on the inside. The Garlic Aioli served on the side was a tasty addition. The staff was very friendly and... More

I had some business in Lecanto and read up on restaurants. Saw that Havana House was close by and decided to give it a try since I grew up in Miami and the only thing I miss is Cuban good. I had the pan con bistec and it was okay- the bread was nicely pressed but was softer than the... More

We eat at Havana House often and always enjoy the comfortable, casual atmosphere as well as the very tasty food. The Yucca Fries are cooked perfectly with centers that are almost creamy; just plain delicious!! The serving staff are very friendly and always seem to work hard to make everything nice. It is a small, local restaurant that is big... More

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
