Owner description: The spirited Cuban neighborhood of Miami where the sights, sounds and smells are intoxicating. Be sure to sample a traditional Cuban meal or grab a quick sandwich cubano and some empanadas at any of the walk up counters.

Expected a location with some community vibe but this is a dump full of bitter twisted auld fellas playing dominos telling lies about a history that never happened. The street main drag itself is dirty and smelly and full of souvenir shops, souvenirs of what exactly? Then the cigar shops with the 'seeds taken from Cuba and sewn in the Dominican Republic' selling 'Cuban Cigars. Yeah Right.......! What nonsense, I acvtulaly bought some as I smoke Cuban Cigars, (the ones actually grown and rolled in real cigar factory's in Cuba - imagine that) and they are not great, a far cry from a real Montecristo or Cohiba Siglo VI indeed!

To think that people actually leave Havana to go to this dump is mind boggling, housing and money may be in short supply in Havana but compared to this place it is paradise, anyways.....seen it now, won't be back

Unless you are Cuban, or you have a specific place you want to eat, this is not a place to just walk around. It is dirty, old and a bit dangerous,

This place parking is horrible ordeal, the streets are crowded and the language barrier is horrible thing. The only thing to see are the rooster in various corners of the streets.

I went to little Havana because I wanted to see some Cuban culture, authentic Cuban food, and dominoes playing. However, I didn't get to see much. Probably because I went down la calle 8 after 5:30. I did get to take pictures of a monument and a couple of Cuban cigars stores and factories but they were closed. Overall, little Havana it's just a neighborhood where some Cuban culture is still alive. Nothing like China Town in NY or Little Italy.
