This was the first time we had ever tried Cuban food, and the verdict is: it was great! Tasty food, friendly service and not long to wait. Meal sizes were quite large and good value for money

There’s plenty of competition in Jamaica Plain for this style of food (Cuban, Dominican, Puerto Rican), but Old Havana can hold its own for a simple meal. We had corn tamales stuffed with pork, then the pork chops and the fried cow (shredded beef). Everything...More

Not sure what all the good reviews are about. Here are the problems: 1) Service: nice staff, but they don’t answer the phone when “busy” and minimize waiting time (ready in 20 min does not mean ready in 45 min especially when only 4 customers...More

This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to

I had a mamey shake. I guess that means no wine was available. That would be in line with other Cuban restaurants in the area. I think you should assume no wine or beer will be available.
