Last month we ate at the newer Havana Rumba and fell in Love with the food. Last night we stayed in Louisville for this mornings Marathon and decided to check out this location. The food was once again fabulous. The namesake Havana Rumba is to die for. Cuban roasted pork, ham, chorizo, cheese and tapenade on a pressed roll. One... More

I used to get Cuban sandwiches in Tampa, Florida when I lived there all the time. I had not been able to find a descent one in Kentucky until Havana Rumba. Their Cuban comes with sweet potato fries which are awesome. I have had the calamari there as an appetizer and it is fantastic. My boyfriend loves the fish there.... More

Usually a busy place on the weekend. Prepare for a wait. Really good margaritas and Cuban food at reasonable prices. Nice place to chill on the weekends or bring out-of-town guests or staff. Service has always been friendly.

This Cuban place is delicious! The food is tasty, plentiful, and fairly priced. The empanadas are a favorite, along with the Cuban Sandwich, but we've had many things on the menu and have never been disappointed. Plan to take a meal's worth home because there is a lot of food! Yum!

If you have never enjoyed the experience of Cuban food this is a must go. The food here is outstanding. From the Cuban pressed pork and serrano sandwich to the Cuban tamales. Everything we had was delicious. And then of course there is desert. Have some Cuban speciality coffee and a piece of cheesecake. The mango is especially delicious.

We eat at Havana Rhumba often. Food is always relish! Love the plantains. My friend thinks the Cuban sandwich is the best ever. Black beans and rice so good. Never had a bad meal here

If you like Cuban food, you have to make your way to Havana Rumba. Better yet, go to the Highlands neighborhood and find Havana Rumba Express. The food is excellent, the place is casual, and the drinks are good. I prefer Express because the original gets SO crowded and noisy. Express is much calmer but the food is just as... More

This is the third time I've been to this location over the years (as we are from out of town). Staff is always friendly and can help make recommendations for meals. Decent wine and beer selection as well. Food is prepared well, has great flavors and always hot. Recommend going during lunch because for dinner it gets very crowded. Would... More

Having never been to an authentic Cuban restaurant we debated on dining here or at one of the areas steakhouses but the Havana Rumba was fabulous. Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful waitstaff, live music and one of the best Mojita's ever. We ordered a mixed tapas sampler (chicken empanada, veggie empanada, Cuban tamales, spicy marinated olives and pickled yucca, grilled... More

I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. I can count on everything to be delicious. It's especially nice when they have live music.
