“Get the lobster.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

We dined here our first night. Lovely, chill vibe. Attentive service. We heard good things about the Lobster with jalapeño sauce, so we ordered 2. 1 would have sufficed. Would have been nice to try one of the other sauces. Oops. Next time. Drinks were just ok. The bartender doesn't drink, soooo.. not exactly the ideal person to be mixing cocktails. Stick with beer or rum & coke. You'll be fine.

“Don't miss out on this gem!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

It can be easy to miss, located just past the dock area, but if you don't find it you will be hugely missing out!! The flavours are delicious, almost as delightful as the friendly staff. Seafood is fresh and served in huge portions. We highly recommend ordering one of their slow cooked authentic Cuban specials, which you need to order a day in advance, but was one of our favourite meals we have had in a long time, so tasty and original.

“great find on front beach, Little Corn Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

this seafront restaurant/bar is an unassuming (I guess most things are on Little Corn) and very pleasant little open-air affair, hosted by a welcoming local lady, "supported" by her husband from Santiago de Cuba. Her name was something like Taima and his, Rolando .. together they put together an understatedly spot-hitting performance of locally-inspired culinary delights and caribbean cocktails. If you want the Ropa Vieja (Cuban dish of pulled stewed beef in tomato-based sauce) you must order in advance. This place happens to be the only place on the island you can get a half decent coffee, by the way, and it's not open all the time. All in all, well worth una visita, or two!

“Two excellent meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Great portions of fresh filet of fish and lobster with Cubana sauce, that were delicious, quickly served and very inexpensive. The waitress was an absolute joy.

“Must Eat Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

We lived on little corn Island for 3 1/2 months and this is the place to be. If Havana wasn't there we may not have stayed as long. We went at least once a week either for a simple lunch of ceviche and Tonas or for lounging in their beautiful wooden chairs with a cocktail after work. Havana also has a great view for the sunsets. We were on the island during the winter/holiday months and were able to sign up for a three course Christmas meal all included for 25$. The owner had spit fired a pig and served the most delicious Cuban pork we have ever had! Lobster, grilled shrimp, everything is fresh and delicious you can't go wrong with any combination of their homemade sauces. Don't forget to ask for coconut flan! Sometimes they will have some and it is a fabulous treat. Their Pina Coladas are also the best on the island. The man and woman behind this restaurant know exactly what they are doing and she works hard to train her staff.
