The food was decent, not great. The Cubano sandwich was rather ordinary. I have had better ones at results sandwich shops. The service was good. The prices are moderate to high. The built in 18% gratuity that does not include tip should be noted.

The folks at Old's Havana know how to put out a great Cuban sandwich. We are locals and we know that not all Cuban sandwiches are the same. These folks really put some love on their Cubano, well pressed, with the right amount of pork,...More

Nice atmosphere in the heart of Calle ocho. We had the frita, the Cuban sandwich and a sort of chili con carne. I am giving it 3 stars instead of 4 as it was a tad too salty for my likings.
