“"Delicious Authentic Cuban Food"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Fabulous Cuban Food. Wonderful service. Restaurant is clean, has a large menu and the food was well prepared and plentiful. We went back twice in a span of five days.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This place was supposed to best Cuban restaurant according to the Lonely Planet guide. So we decided to check it out and got quite disappointed. Prior to coming to Havana, we've already tried cuban food at a few places in Tampa and Miami so we had certain expectations. The food at Havana was quite tasteless and very greasy. Service was rushed and cold. Our main disappointment was the coffee. Cuban esperesso that is sweetened came OVERsweetened with probably 3 or 4 spoons of sugar. Impossible to drink. Cafe con leche should be unsweetened but same thing - came with a ton of sugar. We asked to give us another cup without sugar, and it was granted but the coffee was quite bad. I wouldn't recommend the place.

“Favorite spot in W Palm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I am going back to WPB this week, and the first thing I thought about was how happy I am going to be to go to Havana again. Nice environment and Cafe Cubano that will knock your sox off. The window service is fabulous, and the food inside is good too. Went with 4 generations of my family and everybody felt welcome.

“Consistant Winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Have been visiting Havana for over 15 years and it has always been a winner. Lunch or dinner or take away, the Cuban food is top notch. Most recently we enjoyed dinner, Ropa vieja and roast pork! Service is efficient and professional. The prices are very fair too.

“Great take-away window, skip restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

As good a cafe cubana or cortadito as you will get in the area. The food is not memorable and the restaurant is a bit plastic and the plantains were the best thing we had. We went once to the window and once to the restaurant. We would happily get coffee at the window again.
