I ate here 3 times, over a 10 day stay in Atlanta. They have a very good Cuban sandwich and the plantains were excellent. The Ropa Vieja was also good. One of my favorite restaurants in this area.

For anyone seeking authentic traditional Cuban food, Havana is an excellent choice. The homemade empanadas, Cuban sandwich, black beans and yellow rice is all outstanding. It's counter service vs traditional sit-down restaurant The staff is very warm and welcoming.
