“Good food in a cosy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

Tiny place which has a few extra tables outside in summer. Always busy but you can usually get a booth or table without waiting. Hearty salads and pastas and some Greek food - all delicious.Beer and wine availabe. Closed on Sunday.

“Fantastic Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2011

As Hurricane Irene was approaching, we found ourselves in Fairfax and at the Havabite Eatery. What a great find. This is a quaint eatery with overstuffed booths. It appears to be family run. We had a wonderful Greek salad that was enough to shre and a medium pizza with sausage, mushroom and green pepper that was huge, piping hot and delicious. Also we had one beer and a glass of rose. The service was prompt, the food wonderful and the prices were just right. Definately will be returning!

“Makes you feel like family!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2011

We have been going to Havabite for years and it is one of those small family owned restaurants that make you feel welcome the minute you walk in the door. the owner will come by to make sure the food is to your liking. Over the years we have gotten to know the family and look forward to hearing about their back home to Greece. If you are in Fairfax, this is one of our simple pleasures. Be sure to stop in.

“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2011

For our DC trip we stopped by for a quick lunch. Dad had the roast chicken, mom had the baked Ravs, son had calzone and little girl had grilled cheese. The run down. Chicken was good and cheap but nothing special, the Ravs again good but nothing to to right home.. The grill cheese.. Well what can I say it was grilled cheese. The calzone was the real star of the show. Bottomline a good lunch at a great price.

“Simply The Best in Fairfax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2010

This is abosolutely the best shop in Fairfax. All those other junk restaurants like Cheese Cake and Coasta Flats dont even come close.
The food here is always fresh. I went there with my buddy and he started yelling at one of the waitreses and one of the boys came out and almost beat him up. My friend was so scared that he almost wet himself. Now he wont go back. It is a shame....
