This restaurant is highly recommended by the locals, so expectations were high from my group of 15 staying in the area on business. I wouldn't say we were overly disappointed, but some aspects could have been better. The ambience of the outdoor searing area was very pleasant, the beer cold and the service prompt. However it was the main course... More

We ate breakfast and stopped by another day for drinks. We chose the Traditional Cuban Sandwich with Roasted Chicken and the Cuban Omelet Sandwich for breakfast. They were both mouth wateringly delicious. I wish we could have visited again for some of their other Cuban dishes because these were so good!

Last night we stopped in with some out of town friends at Havana 1957. This was their first time eating at a Cuban restaurant, and they were absolutely speechless. The food was amazing, and the service was incredible. We had a waiter named Romel he was absolutely the best. He was very courteous, attentive, super friendly. One word describes him... More

This was our first experience with Cuban food, and we were not disappointed. Our only regret is that we discovered this restaurant on the day we were leaving Miami and only able to enjoy 1 meal here. The food was flavorful and exotic and the cocktails cold and freshing. We will surely visit again next time in Miami Beach.

Lively, extensive menu, tasty Cuban food, excellent friendly wait staff, busy, noisy, fun. Bill for two with tip was $76.58 including a cocktail and beer. Sat outside, celebratory atmosphere. Music in the restaurant and surround made conversation difficult.

Went to this restaurant based on Yelp reviews and glad we did! This proved to be a great meal! Very authentic. Despite online reviews, our service was very good. Did not wait long to be seated (even on a holiday evening) and received our food in record time. The red sangria was good also.

This place is a must! You must go! The surrounding area is awesome, food is delicious, service was outstanding, the place is a little small but they offer outdoor seating and it really wasn't a big problem... I loved it!!!!!

We returned from a week in Cuba a few months ago. Dayron, our waiter, grew up in Cuba, but knew English very well. He gave us great advice. Frankly, our food was as good or better than any food we had in Cuba. Great rums, great coconut mojitos, incredible chicken and pork. We typically try to visit the Versailles when... More

Got into Miami and were dying for Cuban. It was a beautiful day so we chose to sit outside. We ordered the Cuban combo (serves 2) the Cubano sandwich and the shrimp and rice. The combo was a nice selection of several different foods, giving a nice cross section of Cuban foods. I didn't particularly care for the tamale, but... More
