“Best Vaca Frita in Miami”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Havana Harry's offers the typical Cuban fare in a city where people know Cuban food and they do it well. Their vaca frita is terrific and their bistec palomilla is delicious. Try their sopa de malanga which is creamy and smooth. The only disappointment is that they did not offer natilla or arroz con leche. Their wine list is quite reasonably priced and offers a good selection.
Because it is a family oriented restaurant I would not recommend it for a quiet, romantic evening.

“Deliciosa!! Oh so deliciosa!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Ate at the Coral Gables location with our family. I had the Baby Churrasco and I thought the Chimichurri sauce was the best I've ever tasted. The pork chop was also excellent as were the sides - moro rice, sweet plantains, yucca and more. Had the Dulce de Leche Flan for dessert...big enough to share...and it was fantastic, again possibly the best flan I've ever had. Restaurant atmosphere is lovely. I agree with previous poster that the paper on the tables could go. A wonderful, enjoyable, delicious meal! Don't hesitate to try it!!

“Cuban restaurant very close to Brazilian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Every time we are in Miami area we come to Havana Harry's for at least one meal. As Brazilians it is the most close we can get to comfort food for us.
We usually share among us Churrasco and Vaca Frita as the portion is enough for the 4 of us, we also order Yuca Frita (fried yuca) which is the highlight of the meal for us.
The price is very good for the food you get considering the size of the portions.

“Comida deliciosa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We were driving to the Miami airport after a long weekend of fishing in the Keys and decided we wanted some Cuban food. Our Garmin navigation system picked out a place called Havana Harry's for us and we stopped for lunch - hoping for the best.

We ordered Chicken Vaca Frita (shredded chicken with grilled onions, garlic, and moho sauce) and Lechoncita (shredded roasted pork with grilled onions, garlic, and moho sauce) along with yuca, platanos maduras, and black beans & rice. The portions were just right for two hungry growing boys and the food was delicious! The prices were also quite reasonable and we enjoyed excellent service from the restaurant staff. Havana Harry's turned out to be a serendipitous selection and we added it to the Garmin's favorites list so we can be sure to find this place again on our next visit to Miami.
