Stopped here during a quick stop to Miami. Food was very good. The croquettes were amazing! 8 total in appetizer, 3 diff kinds. I'm going to guess, mashed potato (delicious!), bean and the ham and cheese. Cuban sandwich was amazing and large enough to share. Free plantain chips to pick on. We thought this place was expensive looking at the... More

Wonderful place, just on the sidewalk, good place to spot people and life. Very good food, we started with good snack, chips, then shrimp and local fish. Reasonable price and friendly and attentive staff. Very good place for an uncomplicated very nice dinner that will make an ordinary tuesday into something special

This restaurant was ok but nothing special. The decor is fun but very small and cramped inside. The food was ok but not amazing, it was quite pricey for the quality. The service wasn't great, it seemed like the staff were very friendly with each other and a family unit but because of that they had more interest in themselves... More

Asked our Uber driver about good places to eat especially Cuban. He suggested Havana 1957 on Espanola Way. The skirt steak was fantastic, sooo I ordered for lunch. Really should have ordered for dinner but i'm on vac so who cares (need to now walk about 5 miles to work it off lol ). It was absolutely fantastic! Hubby likes... More

Had dinner here twice. A bit crowded but good service made you always feel "at home". The food I had were good. If I come back to Miami Beach I would visit again. We were there in nov 16. Not that many people/ tourist but here it was always full, som a tip might be to book a table.

We enjoyed great Cuban cuisine in a nice outdoor setting. Service was good, too. Never ate Cuban dishes but found the food delicious and was glad to try it. This restaurant is one of several in Miami and has a diverse menu. Kind of pricey, but good food.

On a cruise ship stop in Miami, we decided to visit South Beach. Wanting Cuban cuisine, we found Havana 1957 on Ocean Dr. and Espanola Way. I offers both inside and sidewalk cafe seating. As it was a lovely day, we dined outside to soak up the South Beach atmosphere. We ordered the Croquetta Preparada sandwiches which are classic Cuban... More

Went to this restaurant back in February and it was very good, went back again in November food not great. Had their house special chicken very dry. Not sure if I caught it on an off night. Not sure if I'd give it another chance. Drinks very overpriced

Bar was great. Large selection of liquor.ambiance was good. We ate at the sidewalk tables. Waiter was entertaining, animated and knew the menu well. Unfortunately, the food was marginal at best. In fact, the rice and potatoes/plantain came out cold and the chicken and pork was barely warm. The only warm thing that was warm were the baked beans. Pleasant... More
