We had a large party and ordered pitchers of mojitos, a few apps, entrees and desserts. This was among the best cuban food we have had (perhaps second best) anywhere. Favorites were the plantain chips and guac and the tres leches cake. Overall, the plantain...More

My family and I visited here for dinner on a Monday night where kids eat free with the purchase of an adult meal. We went right at opening time, so there was no wait. The staff was friendly and very quick. We ordered Rumba Queso...More

Hands down the best food in Louisville. We usually go to the one in Middletown, but they are both the same... great food, good atmosphere, great prices, and friendly staff. I definitely recommend this place!

I do volunteer work and Havana Rumba always puts tables together for our group and that makes it more fun. And of course the food and drinks really help. Great place to party!!

Delicious and fresh Cuban style food. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The best chicken Empanadas I've had anywhere. The salad and entree choices allow for light to heavy meals. The portions are generous. They allow for substations on the side dishes....More

Always a good time and great service @Havana Rumba, but I wish there were some lower carbohydrate options and spicier options. It's a mainstay in our rotation of places to go, but there is still nothing I crave in between.
