We arrived in Miami Beach tired after flying across country, renting a car and driving in from Fort Lauderdale. We checked into our hotel and quickly changed clothes to go grab a bite to eat. The valet at our hotel suggested that we walk to the Espanola area to find some late night food. We did just that and chose... More

We were there during breakfast/lunch time. The food was so flavorful! If we had more time in Miami, I would have gone back for dinner!

At the recommendation of the owner of the hotel we stayed at while in Miami Beach, we ate at Havana 1957! The outside tables were located right on the sidewalk which allowed us to 'people watch' while we had our meal. The service was above and beyond excellent. Our server, Mariana was attentive, friendly and wonderful. We didn't have to... More

An extremely nice place during the evening that is right in the mix of the South Beach action. As a Cuban, I can say the food is very good. A bit pricey considering the ingredients in Cuban food, but when you factor in location and atmosphere, the prices are right in line with every other restaurant in the area. The... More

What a quaint place right in South Beach. The mojitos were fabulous, but this is a pricey joint. I enjoyed the Media Noche sandwich Cuban sandwich. The bread on the sandwich was absolutely delicious. My boyfriend had the traditional Cuban Sandwich. It was not as good as a roadside cafeteria, but it was still pretty good. I was disappointed that... More

Food/Drinks: We were here for an early lunch right after getting off the plane. Get some mojitos. They’re the real deal – sugar cane all up in there, refreshing and delightful. We split the Tostones Rellenos con Camarones – plantain cups stuffed with shrimp. The presentation was beautiful, the cups were crunchy, and the shrimp in sauce – yum. I’d... More

Needed a quick lunch. Had always wanted to try Havana 1957. Sat outside with a great people watching view. We split a Cuban sandwich and beans. Probably one of the best we ever ate. Drinks were a little overpriced. Service was OK. We were in and out quickly.

Best cuban food hands down in Miami so far. I ordered the Signature Chicken plate of theirs slow cooked for hours and my mouth waters just thinking about it. Delicious. Service was quick and funny. From what I saw all authentic Hispanic servers. It's nice when you can relate. Live music the night we went was awesome. Overall, I can't... More
