    The location is easy to find, but parking is a bit hard to do and you might have to go to the side streets. The food and service are both outstanding.

    Our main server (a young woman with an Irish accent) was fab - helpful and upbeat. The prices were very steep for small portions. Chorizo hash contained a minuscule amount of chorizo and v undercooked potatoes. Chicken & waffles were tiny. We almost thought it was a joke. But it wasn't. The restaurant has such great potential - location, ambience and staff. However the food is so disappointing.

    The paella was delicious (except for the mussels). The rose sangria was so welcome on a hot summer night. Great how you’ve set up umbrellas so we can sit outside in the shade.

    We have enjoyed several lunches at Havana over the past few months. The food is always good, and pretty good value. Our last meal was lunchtime on Sunday. It was very busy. The kitchen was probably slammed so we did not get our appetizer before our mains. Our server came to tell us that it had just come up at the same time, and offered to cancel the appetizer order, which we did. As usual, it was very noisy inside, the overhead music was competing with people talking, and it was all bouncing off the high ceiling. So not conducive to any quiet discussion, if that’s what you are looking for. Good place for a group outing but be sure to reserve.

    Good vibe, nice servers, good drinks, BLAND food. I didn’t expect such a lack of flavour from a Cuban restaurant. The fries were so overdone - it was like eating stale crispy unflavoured potatoes. The tacos were lacking flavour, and the burnt cheese wasn’t good.

    The food was super tasty and the ambiance was perfect for my girlfriends birthday. The plantanes are to die for! The only thing lacking was the sometimes spotty service and the tacos had very little meat to them, particularly the fish taco. I would definetely come back here.

    Our meal was good. Not as hot as it could have been but our server Laura was phenomenal. What a treat to have someone with such a great attitude booking with us but not overly so that we felt she was intruding. That is for a great experience Laura!!

    We needed to sit outside for Covid protocol for vulnerable individuals and Havana provided us with a perfect place to enjoy our meal. We’re grateful. And - Our server made us feel VERY welcome! Oh! And they have amazing mocktails. Can’t find those everywhere. Thank you Havana for a wonderful evening.

    Our waiter was very good. He also doubled as the bartender. We did have difficulty talking due to the amount of noise both from the street, we were inside, and the area around us. I think if we had been on the patio the street noise would have been less intrusive.
