Long wait but great food

Booked through open table but then read some reviews about long waits so as our booking was a Friday evening we arrived 15 minutes early. We were shown to our table within a couple of minutes. Water was immediately provided and also a large portion of fried plantain chips while we browsed the menu. The waiter was very helpful, as... More

There are a lot of restaurants in the area but this is a great choice if you are looking for Cuban food. It is in a tourist area but the food tastes authentic and probably the best Cuban sandwich we've ever had. The Havana 1957 sandwich was also delicious. The white Sangria was amazing!

My wife and I recently had dinner here one evening. Admittedly, the restaurant was very touristy but the food was fantastic. I had the lechon asada, which is a roasted pork dish and it was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the mojitos and caipirinhas. Great place for a family dinner as well.

My group was 9 adults, 1 toddler and two babie. We were pleasantly surprised because we were seated fairly quickly considering the amount of people waiting and how busy they were. Nonetheless, we were seated outside by the street, but since this area is blocked off from traffic, it was perfect and our water was attentive. So, lets get to... More

While staying recently in the South Beach area we were referred to the Havana 1957 restaurant on Washington Ave. by our hotel. This is a Cuban restaurant with authentic Cuban cuisine. Out table was located on the sidewalk in front of this establishment, and gave us a great people watching experience. From the mojitos to the roasted chicken with sides,... More
