    We used to come to Havana’s regularly the last couple years but unfortunately we won’t be back. I ordered the tacos and they were much smaller then before. I get it. Inflation. But $17.5-18.5 for two tacos and a small bowl fries should cover the rising costs of food. The portions in the tacos were so scaled back it was ridiculous. So you’ve lost a regular customer :(

    The food was only just edible. The mole fries had obviously been precooked and then reheated, resulting in a soggy mess. The ceviche was tasteless and chewy (which led us to suspect the fish was cooked). The mussels were just fine - nothing to write home about - but had no liquify sauce to scoop up. The service was decent, but overall this place does not deserve the hype.

    Had the carnitas tacos and sangria. Tacos were tasty and sangria was perfect. Havana's chips and guac is a must - chips are so good!

    We had a great evening at Havana. The food was excellent and our servers were friendly, efficient, polite and very professional. The only pieces that were not perfect was the fact that the seats were a bit sticky and having a car parked right by our seats. But neither of those things were particularly a bother. Overall, it was a lovely evening. Cheers

    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.

    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.
