The food was good but the whole time there were so many flys landing on our head, on our food. When we first sat down there was a huge fan blowing right on us that it was blowing my shirt up. I asked them to move it and they did. Now i know why it was there.... to keep the... More

Went there for a "date night." Got seated right away and waitress was nice. However, there was a wasp flying above our heads the entire time(we were seated inside) , the management never came by, nor were we offered different seats. Food was overpriced, dry, and bland. Will not be going back there. Not the upscale restaurant I thought it... More

We have been enjoying Havana's for years and am sad to say that we had a very disappointing experience. Even with three hostesses we waited for our table. We were seated in the bar area which was not a problem, except that it took a long time to get our drinks. As we watched the hostesses chatting we couldn't help... More

The meal was very good the service was good but there was a delay in seating us even though there were open tables and what appeared to be plenty of staff on hand.

You can sit outside, on a covered porch, or inside. We were on the covered porch which was spacious and pleasant. The atmosphere is casual and fun, and there was a live band playing music outside. The band probably would interfere with conversation if you were outside, but on the covered porch, it was fine. Everyone enjoyed their food. They... More

Stopped here for lunch on a rainy day based on Trip Advisor reviews. Service was unpolished but attentive. Chowder - very good, Calamari - very light on the breading which is our preference and allows the flavor to come through, Crab salad - very nice, Warm seafood salad - great taste but rather scant on seafood.

Friendly staff coupled with good food made for a memorable evening! We sat on the porch seating area outdoors and it just added to the atmosphere! Restaurant was very clean and wait staff was on point. Located in Carolina Beach was is a quaint beach town that has somehow managed to avoid being overly commercialized. My wife and I will... More

We had a nice dinner here at Havana's. The kids enjoyed playing corn hole games in the front yard of the restaurant. Service was good and efficient. Food was cooked as we requested but we felt a bit pricey for the area.

We ate a late lunch at Havana's. It was an easy walk from our hotel and the hotel front desk recommended the restaurant. Food was good, atmosphere ( an early 1900s cottage)was quaint and service was fantastic....Servers were very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about the area. We would recommend.
