Wonderful food and very good service. Especially recommend Cuban sandwich with sweet potato fries, the guacamole dip with plantain chips and a red sangria.

We had already eaten dinner and wanted to stop at Havana Rumba just for dessert. We saw on their website several delicious sounding desserts but when we got to the restaurant they only had a couple of items and not the ones we were interested in. We would have tried the tres leches cake but they were also out of... More

They did not have cuban potatoe balls that I was looking forward to trying. My cuban sandwich was good, but did not like the chicken empanadas. My daughter did not like anything she tried, but the people we ate with loved it!

What a great place to eat Cuban food and their drinks are at die for.....especially the Swirl Margaretta(made with Sangria). Be all means order the guacamole appetizer with plantain chips. Everything we ate was yummy. Too much to choose from. On weekends a band plays. Small restaurant so either eat early or late.

I met a friend who highly recommended Havana Rumba. It's her favorite Cuban restaurant and reminds her of her Cuban grandmother's cooking. Ropa Vieja and Fricase de Pollo were wonderful with lots of leftovers. Has a family feel.

As the title states, the food was very good but we waited for nearly an hour to get our entrees. The place was packed and there were probably 40-50 people waiting for a table, so it was forgivable. We'll definitely be stopping by on our next trip.

We parked on the street and this nice couple asked if we were going into Havana Rumba. We said yes. They said the wait was long but worth it. It was Saturday and we're told it was 40 min wait. Only took 30. Our server was delightful and funny. Drinks and food came out fast even though it was packed.... More

Don't miss the platanos. I could make a meal of those! The Cuba libre was also very well made. I'll definitely be back!
