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

Love love this restaurant. Food is delicious and the staff is wonderful. Best empanadas I have ever had. The garlic sauce for dipping is superb. Took the 'Tour of Cuba' and every stop was divine! Will definitely eat here again next time I'm in Florida.

This is a great, locally-owned, family restaurant with amazing Cuban food! With so many mediocre chain restaurants around this area, Havana's is just what we were looking for. Must try the Shrimp Mofongo and the Skirt Steak!

As many time as we visit Orlando, we have NEVER come across this gem! The service and food was AMAZING! Mom and dad shared the Red Snapper dinner special, while my daughter and I shared the Arroz con Pollo. We also shared the combination appetizer platter, which came with a sample of each appetizer that was listed in that section.... More

My husband loved the shakes. I thought the sangria was tasty. It was a nice break from an amusement park on a saturday afternoon. Service was a bit slow but very friendly and helpful. The food was very good. Their Con Gris was OK, not great, but I am spoiled by a mother in law who makes the best ever.... More

I always try to eat here when I come to Orlando. This is my seventh year. Tonight did not disappoint. I started with one each, beef and chicken empanadas. The beef empanada is perfect blend of ground beef, seasoned rice and tasty mild spice. A perfect start. Zarzuela was the main course. It is best described as a Cuban paella.... More
