Delicious Cuban Cuisine!!!

Havana Rumba is a treat! I love the food here and still can't believe it is local. I love when a restaurant can succeed and thrive in a town because they consistently provide a higher quality than the competition. The food here can feel a little pricey for cuban before you take a bite $$$ but... read more

While visiting Louisville for my son's wedding we dined at Havana Rumba the evening after the wedding. It was something new for my husband and I along with our guests. We all tried something different from the menu and not one of us were disappointed. One of our friends was worried about the food being too spicy and was reluctant... More

We tried this restaurant on a Friday night and had to wait about 30 minutes for a table but didn't mind while we indulged with a margarita at the bar which I must say was very good. I can't remember ever having bar service that fast. Our table waiter was also very attentive and kept up with drinks, refills and... More

Love The Cuban sandwich and the Banana and Mango Mojitos. Try this place for dinner. Noisy but great food.

From the moment you step in, the staff make you feel like family. The place gets a bit noisy at times, and isn't the most spacious. If you go into it realizing that, you won't be upset. The food itself. Have eaten here 20+ times, not a bad meal. Need to choose more based on how hungry i am, as... More

Louisville is a great restaurant city, but we are just now branching out into Cuban food. We recently lost the only Argentinian restaurant in town, unfortunately! Havana Rumba is a place I've been to many times, and I adore it! The Cuban bread is some of the best in town, the pork dishes are always tender and flavored with citrus,... More

My wife and I and another couple enjoyed a fine dinner here last night. The restaurant does not look inviting from the outside, however, inside, the execution of a great meal becomes apparent. I started with the Cuban tamales, and they were artfully presented, and tasted great. I also had the vegetarian press sandwich, followed by the havana bananas. This... More

Great Cuban food. Great drinks. Usually pretty busy at night and on the weekends. The sandwiches are my favorite. The serve is always top notch.

It's hard to order anything "bad" here. Run your finger down the menu, stop and order. Odds are, you'll be happy you did. Cuban Coffee is to die for.
