Excellent lunch

Visiting Louisville after many years we headed to Havana Rumba to see if it was as good as we remembered. It was...almost. Our lunch was good. It needed a little more spice, but overall I'd say they've maintained a consistently solid meal. Probably nothing is as good as you remember, but Havana... read more

The Lechon Asado is so incredibly tender and juicy! Great Cuban food and Caribbean music on the weekend.

This restaurant is often busy. Delicious food. The Cubano is very hearty so plan on taking some home. Good sangria. Nice ambiance.

This was our first visit. At 5:30 on a Friday we were promptly seated, and were brought bread and butter. We ordered the empanadas appetizer (with beef). I could eat them everyday! My husband is the conservative eater and had a top sirloin sandwich and fries. The steak was so large it can't be eaten like a sandwich. He was... More

Authentic Cuban food is delicious, but Havana Rumba is not. If you have ever been to Miami and eaten at an authentic Cuban restaurant, you would expect a cafe con leche on the menu. When I asked for coffee, I was told the coffee was instant! Cubans do not drink instant coffee. Not a fan of this place.

This is where you take a date if you don't know where to take them. The food is not super spicy but very, very, flavorful. And what can you say about fried plantains? I personally like the tostones con pollo and vaca frita, but everything is good. Service is great, the staff are friendly, if not authentic. You will not... More

True Cuban dishes. I love their sandwiches and the Vaca Frita. Good service too. Wish the location in St. Matthews was still open for lunch!

One of the best tables in the city. Great service, great food. Have explored the entire menu, have not had a bad meal. The original is better than the spinoffs. Great place for family and kids.
