Fried calamari appetizer was tasty. I had the crab cakes with spinach and risotto. Husband had crab stuffed salmon with lemon caper sauce. All food was very good. Staff was very friendly. Nice atmosphere. My only complaint was what looked like a metal staple in my spinach. It probably came... read more

I had family in from out of town and we went to Havana's for dinner. The atmosphere was not good, the restaurant was far too warm, the wait staff was not attentive. We had to run them down to request refills. The food was mediocre. I had the shrimp and grits and could not even eat the meal. It was... More

Fried calamari appetizer was tasty. I had the crab cakes with spinach and risotto. Husband had crab stuffed salmon with lemon caper sauce. All food was very good. Staff was very friendly. Nice atmosphere. My only complaint was what looked like a metal staple in my spinach. It probably came from the produce packaging. Glad I didn't swallow it.

We got to Havana's at 7:00 pm and there was a 45 min wait with more than 50% of the tables vacant, clean and ready for seating. We waited there as they got more and more overwhelmed. At exactly 7:45 we were seated at a table that was vacant since our arrival. Our order of a Cobb salad and seared... More

We ate here with a family group of 7. The service was the highlight of the meal, even over the busy July 4th weekend. Try the spicy shrimp appetizer, it was my favorite. I also recommend the mediiterean salad, lobster bake and crab cakes. Both very tasty. I was disappointed with the famous clam chowder. Full of bacon and potatoes... More

Having eaten here several time in the past year I am surprised at the level of service. The staff are very friendly and "say" the correct things but fall short on delivery. At our last dining, there were 6 in the party and after drinks, appetizers and orders placed we still had to ask for small dishes for our appetizers.... More

It's difficult to fine higher end dining in Carolina Beach but Havana's offers a great fine dining experience. The food was excellent and cooked to perfection. I had the AhiTuna and it was spectacular, my husband had a combination of several seafoods and enjoyed it. Would certainly return to Havanas should we visit Carolina Beach again.
