Awesome Cuban restaurant in downtown New Albany

We were visiting friends and had lunch at Habana Blues in downtown New Albany, IN. What a great meal! Our server, Wesley, was so hospitable and (since it was our first visit) guided us through the menu, assisting us in our choices. We each had something different from the "Tres en Uno" section... read more

This is one of my favorite places to eat! This restaurant has been around for a couple of years, but they just moved to a new location. The atmosphere is modern and trendy. It feels like you are on vacation when you visit the restaurant and there is live music and dancing many nights. I have tried lots of different... More

We've eaten at Habana Blues at its old location and had a good experience. We came to Habana Blues with guests to introduce them to what we hoped would be the same at their new location. Service was extremely poor. Items on menu were not available, wrong food was delivered to table, just a meal full of service problems. It... More

This was our fist Cuban food experience and it was okay. I ordered the pork tacos and they were too spicy for me - I'm pretty picky. I'll go back, probably on a Friday night - they have a salsa band. Next time I'll try the scallops.

I have been a long time satisfied customer of Habana Blues in New Albany. Recently I visited the new location at 320 Pearl Street, and found the same great food... great service and a beautifully decorated new location. I loved to eat in the little courtyard at the previous spot on Market... the new location has out front seating... overlooking... More

I ordered a guacamole dip with plantain for an appetizer. It was delicious and was a huge portion for the price. Our entrees were also amazing! Good food, great service, and reasonable price. Will definitely go again.

Lots of options; well seasoned food; good service. Eat outside in the courtyard if you have a pretty day and take advantage of the nearby independent shops and farmers' market to make it an outing.

My nephew from Louisville took me here for dinner. Since it was my first experience with Cuban food he did all the ordering. He ordered several small plates that we shared so that we ate several different foods. Everything was delicious. I hope to go back sometime to experience some more tasty food at this restaurant.

This is the genuine Cuban restaurant deal. The tapas are as varied and appetizing as you will find anywhere. They offer all of their entrées in tapa size or as a dinner with side items. Quality of the food and the service is excellent. I can't recall a bad dining experience at this little restaurant. If you're headed away from... More
