I have been to this place many times over the last 20 years and their Cuban sandwiches were always right on. Today was ridiculous. I realize what day it is but after shopping with my wife I decided to have something I don't eat often. The sandwich was pathetic. NO pork. It tasted like ham and bologna with so much... More

We've been coming back to Havana Village for 30 years, and it has changed hands several times. Today's visit proved that it is still worth the trip--perfect fried yuca and a mouth-watering medianoche sandwich. New owner has created a friendly atmosphere. Try a tropical shake for a refreshing finish!

This place is perfect for what it is. Good food, very nice service, and surrounded with a decor straight from years ago. I always enjoy my food and service here. It is definitely dated, but that's what makes it very relaxed. Come with friends or family to have some old Tampa Cuban coffee and a meal. The old timers make... More

From great service to delicious food, this spot is a must whenever we travel to the Tampa area. The "café con leche" (coffee with milk) is awesome!

Posted hours today were until 7:00pm. We arrived at 6:30pm and found the doors locked and no one around. Very disappointed!

The key to a cuban sandwhich is the press and Havana Village knows how to make a good Cuban Sandwhich. Plenty of meats with of course the pork that seals the deal. I hadn't eaten here since 1997 after I moved and I swear it was like a flashback in time - nothing changed except the prices. But $5.95 for... More

I was craving some picadillo so I thought I would try this Cuban restaurant located near me. Unfortunately they were sold out of it when I arrived at 1pm. I decided to go ahead and get a sandwich since I was already there. I ordered the Pan con Lecheon (pulled pork sandwich) and was fairly disappointed. For some reason it... More

I love this place. I always order a cuban and a cafe con leche and I'm a happy girl. We'll sit and chat and sip on our coffee. Great place to grab food!

Easy to find and park, unlike going into ybor city. Staff very friendly esp owner who sang in Spanish. Place was clean and easy going. The Cuban was good, not great. Too much mustard and bread too dry. Flan average. They charged me for two diet cokes instead of one, didn't notice till later. Maybe an oversight but dunno, a... More

Lynn and I have not been to Havana Village in years, but we decided to try it again recently while on a day trip to Plant City. We were surprised that the menu had changed considerably from how remember it in the past. We once bought Cuban Sandwiches, empanadas, chicken and yellow rice and more really reasonably. Some items were... More
