I've been here twice, love the food, great Cuban cocktails. Staff is friendly, love the guy who rolls cigars. If you're lucky you can see a band playing live salsa:)

Great special for unlimited drink selection for 2 hours. Great drinks & potent! Sit out in the garden otherwise it's too loud to hear your table speak.

Firstly, start of with a mojito, then work your way through the appetizers ( we recommend the ceviche and maduros) order a nice glass of Malbec and have one of the meat dishes. The churrasco was dreamy! Finish with a nice coco flan and a rich coffee. I think this place is superb and I would love to go back.

Havana Alma de Cuba offers a nice brunch menu with great cuban food. Add the $12.95 ( was once $10.95 but still so reasonable ) two hour unlimted brunch drinks and it will be a Sunday Funday for sure. Sangria is like magic potion, and the ropa vieja is very good. Yuca with garlic mojo is my favorite side dish.... More

I like Cuban food, but don't eat meat or poultry and often have a hard time finding anything to eat besides shrimp in garlic sauce. This place has a refreshing selection of fish and vegetarian dishes. The seafood paella was fantastic. The sparkling sangria is a nice twist on a classic drink. The only issue was that the music was... More

I've been here twice. Love this spot. Food was great on both occasions. Empanadas and tostones rellenos are great for appetizers. Had the Paella and Arroz con pollo for entrees on both occasions. All delicious. White Sangria goes great with the food. Try to sit in the garden. Very nice setting.
