Just left, and the food was authentically Miami Cuban delish! We started with plaintain chips, which were very good. My husband had the Churrasco steak, which proved to be much better than the one he had two nights ago nearby. We shared his black bean/rice side, and I had the avocado salad, which came with balsamic vinegar and oil on... More

I love this place. It is lively, friendly and delicious. Went back for dinner on a Saturday night and it was busy. Sat outside. Had Churrasco and a Whole Snapper steamed with a Criolla Sauce - yes again. OMG. We both loved it. The staff remembered us and we haven't been there too often. He had talked me into the... More

Our family arrived at around 7:30 and we were met by a man who asked how many in our party. I answered 7. He asked if we had a reservation and I replied no, is one required? He said yes (website says recommended but not required therefore we didn't make one). My husband says to the host your restaurant is... More

Had dinner here with my wife while in Orlando. Loved the quiet, laid-back atmosphere. Unlike a lot of restaurants in the area, you can carry on a conversation without elevating your voice. The empanadas were very good. My wife's grilled chicken dish was very tasty and my shredded beef dish was also very good. My only disappointment was they stopped... More

Being from Miami and married to a Cuban wife this place is excellent. Don't be fooled by the strip mall location. It's truly authentic Cuban Cuisine. You will not be disappointed.

Was there for Valentines Day while on a business trip. We decided to go there hoping the wait would not be long since it is more of a local place. It was a great choice and no wait. With only a 3.5 star review on google may have been the reason but my son and I who joined me on... More

I was in Orlando for business - investment seminars at the Hyatt Place Lake Buena Vista - and or group of eight wanted to walk and eat. We walked here, it felt good even before we sat down, and after reviewing the menus the server did the right thing. “How about you eat family style and you have some of... More

We had an excellent meal at Havanas. They have a wide range of seafood options, as well as beef chicken and pork options. The Flan is outstanding for dessert.

By far, the worst Cuban restaurant I have been to. I ordered Lechon......It came with onions and a little bit of pork (pernil.) The moros were lukewarm - and that is being generous. When I ate what I could, my plate had a huge pile of onions and almost all of the moros untouched. When the waiter asked how was... More

I've visited many Cuban restaurants, and I consider myself VERY picky when it comes to Latin restaurants. The food was all great! The offer an appetizer combo, which lets you sample all of the appetizers. I had lechón with arroz con gandules, my son had ropa vieja, my other son had a combo of different meats. They were all DELICIOUS.... More
