This place is a hidden gem. Love the food. Each member of our party of eight got something different and every meal was delicious. We all enjoyed every single bite. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone. The atmosphere was incredible and enjoyable. The waiter added to the experience being very knowledgeable about the menu and very personable.

I'm originally from Miami, FL so I've missed authentic Cuban food. Our party of 4 each tried something different, a chicken dish, the roast pork and the Ropa Vieja which was the best out of these 3 choices. The roast pork needed a little more seasoning. I tried the Yuca again for the first time in many years and was... More

I've eaten here a number of times over the years. Everything I've tried is consistently good. You really can't go wrong with Havana Rumba!

While visiting family in the area, we all dined here. Seven total including a high chair. We are STUFFED and took home leftovers. My 16 year old was do full from appetizers that when his meal arrived, he had it boxed to go. Though "just" a chicken sandwich, it was massive. Great service. Good Cuban coffee. Try the black beans!

The food is authentic Cuban. The restaurant has lovely decor, and is spotless. Our waitress was very pleasant.

The staff is curious and attentive. This had become my favorite place to eat. I want sure what to expect my first visit. It was different and I feel hook, line and sinker in love with the food. Before she asks me where I would like to eat out my wife already knows my answer. A must try when in... More

Authentic Cuban food. Fun place, can sit indoors or out. Drinks & service were great. Music was a little loud when sitting close.

When I am Louisville there are three places that are on my two eat list. Those places include Havana Rumba, Guacamole, and the Brinx Wine Bar. Those three places represent the best food in Louisville. Tonight, on a quiet Monday evening I headed for the remodeled Havana Rumba in St. Matthews. Luis was my waiter and he picked up on... More

Just visited Havana Rumba and was quite pleased with the quality of the food and the wonderful service we had. I have to eat gluten-free due to celiac disease, and our server was very careful to make sure I had a gluten-free dinner. He double-checked everything with the chef and I was so thankful! I had slow-roasted pork with yuca... More

Let me preface this review with this: I am Cuban so I wasn't expecting a wow factor when dining here. The menu was fairly comprehensive and had many choices one might expect. The food was good but some items tasted bland or flat to us. They had the right ingredients but it all came together in a water down kind... More
