“If you like culture...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

...you will love driving or walking through this Cuban neighborhood near downtown Miami. Stop at any place that appears to be just a hole-in-the-wall for the most authentic, delicious Cuban food you can get outside the island itself!

“"needs to be re-named"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

I have lived in Miami for 52 years , in the last 10 to 15 years Little Havana is no longer what the name implies, needs to be rename " Little Central and South America", the Cubans are gone along with their stores, restaurants and good food, now all you see for restaurants is "fritanga", Havana never knew this word. The reviews I see about Cuban food are from tourists that don't know that the so called CUBAN they ate was made by non-Cubans. Be aware no more Little Havana , only the name remains.

“Go if you have time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

I enjoyed the visit but would only recommend visiting if you have the time. Great Wall murals and a very different culture. Did not try and of the local eateries. To sum up, "interesting but not a must see".

“Waste of time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely nothing to see, and out of the way, especially if you don't have a car. Do not waste your time here, really.

“The Place To Try Cuban Food & Buy Cigars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Big Bus Tour had a stop here in front of the domino park. Hubby and I got out to walk around and grab some Cuban food for lunch and buy some "Cuban" cigars. Cuban food is not spicy at all -- I don't like spicy food and I would have liked a little bit more spice. The food is kind of bland in my opinion, but the Cuban coffee is really, really good. It's strong like espresso with sugar already mixed in. If you want it with milk, you can get it that way too (that's how I ordered it and really enjoyed it). Find a cigar store where you can watch the cigars being hand rolled in front of you. Very cool to see. They are "Cuban" Cigars without the prohibition on import or the super high price tag because the store owners brought Cuban tobacco seeds here long ago and therefore grow the same tobacco that would be grown in Cuba. The ice cream is yummy on a hot day too.
