We had been going to Habana for years prior to moving out of state, so after several years had concerns that it wouldn't be "the same". We were pleasantly surprised that the menu had changed slightly, but the quality of both the food and beverages was still top notch! The ambience is fantastic providing both indoor and outdoor seating and a wide, excellent selection of Cuban and latin-inspired fare. The drink menu was the same and they didn't skimp on the drinks! Location is good in the "Anti-Mall" across the freeway from the famous South Coast Plaza. Warning that parking can be very difficult...we used Uber in deference to the aforementioned cocktails, but carpool for sure! Get a reservation on weekends or you will have to wait. Mid to Upper mid level prices, but the quantity and quality make it worth it! Ropa Vieja with plantains was a favorite and we split a Paella that was good not great...needed a bit more saffron, but there were generous portions of seafood, sausage and chicken. Definitely a must visit when in the area. Close to the Westin SCP and South Coast Rep Theater!
