Stopped here with my family based on reviews. Was not disappointed! The food was plentiful and excellent! Waiter was very friendly and helpful. Got the Vaca Frita, extra crispy per his recommendation. Nailed it! Also got the sweet potato fries as an appetizer. They were yummy! The black beans and rice were some of the best I've ever had!

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 Rumba was pretty close.

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.

Love carnitas and Havana Rumbas are excellent. Service usually excellent with happy waitstaff. Like St Mattews location best.

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
