We came here after seeing a show. We were in Times Square and wanted to eat in a place that wasn't a tourist spot.

We showed up around 1:30 and the place was full, but we didn't haves wait. The restaurant is large and has a second floor.

The service was good. The lunch specials were all the traditional Cuban fare. Our group of five tried different items and all were well done.

Lovely music provided by Latino band. I was disappointed by the food, the garlic prawns were obscenely garlicky. I love garlic but this was beyond. Portions generous. Calamari to start was huge, but a little chewy. Okay place.

We regularly go to the theater and we love to stop by Havana Central. I just love the atmosphere of the place! Service is top notch and the food is always great! My favorite is their Seafood Paella. You get a very generous amount of food and be prepared to to take the leftovers home.

They make the best Mojitos I have ever had! During happy hour (5-7pm, I think) the bar is packed and they are making mojitos by the dozens. They also offer empanadas for $1 each during happy happy hour! So good that ended up being my dinner before my 8:00 broadway show...only steps away!

The food was good cuban food, I ordered the Lancon which was very good, also the ribs wichh were of, the guava sauce in it was very good however the ribs aren't cooked with the sauce, it is added after the meat is cooked therefore the ribs aren't glazed like they should be. I went on a Friday night and the had a band that played Puertorican and Cuban music which was very good and gave the whole place a great Friday night feeling.
