Our visit to the Kendall, FL Casavana was, for us, a very unique experience. Having traveled to the Caribbean a few times, we have sampled much of that cuisine but we've always wanted to try Cuban. We've had some so-called "Cuban-style" sandwiches, etc. in SW Florida but never true Cuban dishes. This visit allowed us to taste two wonderful dishes, one fish and the other beef and both were scrumptious! The beans and white rice and plantains were also wonderful as was the fresh bread. Although the restaurant was very busy and many families and larger groups waiting to be seated, the two of us were shown our table almost instantly. Our server was so personable and helpful with the menu, asking us if this was our first visit. Service was relatively quick, the food was hot, and the soup might have been the best we've tasted. Upon our return to South Florida, we will certainly come back to Casavana!

Went for Christmas Day Lunch with my partner and his parents. They are so organized they had us sitting down within 15 min. The food was out quick and everything was FRESH and HOT!
If in the area....this is a great place to check out for Cuban Food.

We have been eating at Casavana for many years and have never been disappointed. Try their fried plantains with garlic sauce. They are the best. The white rice and beans is delicious. They also make great soups. The steaks are very tasty and so is their grilled chicken.

Ladies and gentlemen this place rocks the city of Miami. There are two ways of eatiing here, one is the express window where you can order a cuban coffee with the different cuban pastries they have available sucha as Empanada (meat, ham and cheese and chicken) or croquetas, pstelito de guayaba etc. my favorite is Empanada de Carne (Meat Empanada) make sure you add "Green Tabasco Sauce" Delicious!!! The other way to enjoy this restaurant is to dine in, they have a wider selection of food such as Palomilla Steak, ropa vieja, Special Cuban Sandwich and many more. Service is great, prices are reasonable and the restaurant has a good setting. They have few locations around Miami, make sure you locate your map to locate one near to you.

Ate dinner with friends. Authentic and tasty Cuban food but one of the menu items was not as expected (was supposed to be chicken with Mango sauce but it was not). Worth eating there if you are in the neighborhood.
