We loved our dinner here. First off, if you're going on a weekend night, make reservations! We did, and we still had to wait, as it's a smallish place with most of the seating outside.

Our waiter said they have the best mojitos in Miami, and we agree...my pineapple mojito was delicious. Appetizers were great, my picadillo was heavenly, teen daughter's ropa vieja was "awesome," and husbands Cuban sandwich was "amazing." We were so full, we had no room for dessert.

Loved the festive atmosphere, enhanced by Latin music. We will certainly return to Havana 1957 when we are back in Miami Beach.

We had a great Saturday night here and enjoyed some house specialties on both the food and drink front. We took a table outside and the place was buzzing. The starter sample plate gave us a good intro to Cuban food and they have 120 rums on the menu.

Had a terrific meal here. the atmosphere was authentic as well as the food. Best Mojito I ever had. Spent a couple of nights in Miami and wanted some good cuban food. This place hit the spot. Highly recommend it.

My wife and I went here spontaneously are first night in south beach, and couldn't ask for something better or more authentic for a first time Cuban experience. We got the special and shared it because it was definitely big. The server was amazing and we were treated great. Also we had spoken to a local and we were told it was vary smart to have eaten on espanol way. We were also told to avoid ocean drive and we did. So to sum this up it was are favorite place and food we had in south beach.

Having stayed a few nights in Miami and had mediocre food at high prices, we eventually stumbled upon this great restaurant. Large platefuls of tasty food at reasonable prices with lovely helpful staff who make you feel very welcome. Seating is outside on the pavement under big umbrellas but still bags of atmosphere in this area of the city.
