I've eaten here about 4 times now. My husband and I love this place! The food is simple, yet flavorful. I think the pricing is reasonable. If you are budget conscious, they have some good lunch specials on the back of the menu. Be sure to get the Tres Leches dessert and a cafe cubano con leche at the end of your meal! Dee-licious!

Love the food. Don't love the noise, but it does contribute to the fun atmosphere. I will go back!

I went with some friends that had also lived in Puerto Rico and love Caribbean cuisine. The portions were more than generous and the Mojitos were good, but not quite as good as their sister Tapas restaurant also located in Louisville. The tostones with chicken appetizer is a meal in itself. Don't order as an appetizer unless you are sharing with several people!

We made a weekday trip to the Shelbyville location to try this Cuban restaurant. We had tried Cuban food in Miami and wanted to get some more. The menu is fairly extensive, has lots of tapas and a nice drinks menu. For entrees we went with a pork and a seafood dish. Aside from the yucca, which is similar to glue sticks, the food was very good. The tropical salad is terrific and the tres leches cake is to die for.

The restaurant offers a cozy atmosphere with booths, the only negative was the noise level. Service was excellent. Would go again to try other dishes.

We went to Havana Rumba with friends while in Louisville for a weekend getaway. Out of the four of us three of us order the Havana Rumba sandwhich and my husband ordered a steak dish. Our sandwhichs came out together but my husband did not get his food. The manager came over and explained that there was a mistake and that his food would be out soon. And sure enough it was. We were not charged for his meal because of the mistake (they did that without us making any complaints). The staff seemed a little flustered (it was quiet busy on a Sat. night) but our orders were made in a timely fashion. The food was tasty and the drinks were good. Overall a good dinner experience.
