Good food. My children love it but too expensive. A family of 5 would cost you a bit over $100.00 no alcohol included. Nothing fancy. Too much fried food or garlicky. Good staff.

We decided to try Havana Rumba as a change from our ordinary routine. They offered very good food and excellent service for a reasonable price. We look forward to returning soon.

In Louisville on business and was referred to this restaurant. My first real experience with Cuban food. The staff was very friendly and made good recommendations. Food quality was superb. I had the Masas dish and a bowl of black bean soup. The pork was tender and moist. The hot sauce was definitely one of the best. Hope I can... More
