This place was so good, I ate here twice. The 1st time was for lunch and I had a traditional Cuban sandwich, The Cubano. The sandwich was deliscious. The meal was started off with some deep fried plantain chips. The service was good and we sat outside. All in all it was a good meal and worth the money.
The 2nd time was for dinner. This meal was outstanding, The waiter was awesome, He was so friendly and offered his suggestions. I decided on the Camarones al Ajillo. This was shrimp sauteed in garlic, olive oil and white wine served with white rice. Outstanding!! And totally worth every penny! I highly recommend this restaurant and this particular dish!

I've rated this place 5 out of 5, as my wife & I found no faults with the place and have a great experience.... even if we were only having breakfast.

The owner/manager warmly greeted us when we decided to dine in, and the service we received from our server was equally good.

I had a cafe con leche (I think that was how it was spelt) a milky coffee on recommendation from the waiter and it was lovely.

Breakfast was served in a frying pan, which may sound odd, but when you view the photo I'm about to post you'll know it was nice. We were told when Cuban breakfasts contain egg, as much of the breakfast menu did, this is how its served.

The ambience and setup of the restaurant was great & the fact they have free wifi was a bonus too!!

I'm not an expert on Cuban food, but can say it was delicious.

The food was very good and plenty of it. . Prices were also good. Service and staff very friendly. Would have taken a doggy bag but our hotel had no microwave to reheat.So bring your appetite.

My wife and I had a lovely meal here. The salad was fresh and tasty and my steak was great along with the sweet potato fries. We were very surprised, as our food whilst in Cuba was the worst we have ever had, any were in the world !
Would recommend Havana 1957, the staff that served us were very helpful and polite.

We received great service and enjoyed watching all people on Espanola way. The menu had a wide variety of selections and the food was really good. Gets crowded early so make reservations.
Would definitely go back.
