This place always has energy! Servers are friendly and I love the food options. Excellent margaritas and many other drinks. Outdoor seating in summer is great.

Havana Rhumba is one of my very favorite restaurants in town. This is Cuban cuisine and do they ever know how to make it. My favorite dish is the grilled swai in a pesto sauce. I also like the shrimp aioli and the ropa veija.

If you like fresh minty mojitos, this is the place! They put fresh mint and sugar cane in every drink...note, they are strong and after 2 you are a bit tipsy. The food is delightful as well. I've never has anything that I didn't love.

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
