OK, if you want a real Cuban experience this may not be the place for you. But if you just want great food, drinks and service this could be the place! The restaurant has only been open a short while but I predict this one will climb very close to the top of the picks. Feels more like being in a trendy bistro in London or the US, but without the ridiculous prices. Go for it! Great yum yums!

Habana 61 is a little gem. Small air conditioned restaurant on La Habana st. The menu had a more contemporary approach, such delights as chicken in a coffee sauce and some tantalising rabbit. A very modern atmosphere with relaxing music and a decent wine selection. The staff were very attentive and knowledgable ( which helps if your spanish is virtually non existent ). We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, and wished we hadn't run out of time to go back.

Thank you for your kind words on what we aim for - a modern Cuban restaurant, a good place to be for locals and visitors alike. And we'll happily pass on your praise for their English language knowledge to our staff, they are working hard on that. Hope you'll be back sometime - best wishes to Motherwell!

The restaurant is hard to miss, with a large image of the chef. As you enter the place, the owner did welcome us. As being a vegetarian, the chef itself came to see us and suggest some food, finally we ate gaspacho and a tower of berengena that was excellent. Vine selection also good. Our overall experience was good, we had a great night at Habana 61
The tastes were harmonized and the place good.
The restaurant has inner seats and front table that looks out to the street, it is interesting watching the night traffic of Habana Vieja.
I wish success to the owners of the restaurant and keep doing a great job.

Yes, we do our best to cater for special wishes, anything that is not on the menu, and we are glad you found vegetarians are well catered for. Actually Cuban cuisine is quite rich on that, as for a long time meat had been a luxury, and often is even today. And what an honour that you as a fellow Cuban who has travelled the world enjoyed what we provide. Thank you for your best wishes and mucha suerte!
