Portions of food are huge! Not to mention how delicious are :) Service is very fast and staff inside really friendly plus handsome! They even helped us with basic tourist questions about Bonn. I like indoors environment. Atmosphere is very pleasant and place is always crowded. Of course I recommend trying pizzas and german beer.

Although we couldn’t find so much of a Cuban connection (more of an Italian), it was a good choice for a lunch. A Schnitzel Milanese, coated with Parmesan cheese, and a Tortellini Aurora, stuffed with ricotta and spinach, went down very well but without that little extra. The children were served pizza and spaghetti in huge rations.

Very good service. Caring and focused on your needs. Nice place to sit outside even in the evenings, even in winter. Good drinks and food. Worth visiting if you're in the area

Is a very popular place to go out here in Bonn. Night and day is always good there. During summer days in good weather also there are tables outside. Good food, friendly staff and also a very good coffee.

The first thing that sticks out if you enter the Havanna is the great interior design. Surely, someone has taken a lot of effort just to design the rooms. The light is just set right to create a cozy atmosphere while keeping the menu perfectly readable. The staff is very quick, helpful and decent overall. While food and drinks always... More

I just love the atmosphere of this small place! It can accommodate any mood, it’s suitable for a quick stop for a glass of beer, an aperitif, a midday schnitzel, or an evening with friends. Staff is professional and very courteous. It’s very pleasant to seat outside on a sunny day, but step inside and experience the interior design –... More

This restaurant is one of a dozen or more located near the Botanical Gardens and the Universitat, that caters to the college crowd of students and faculty. We ate here for lunch and found their mittagessen menu well varied, with dishes that included pasta, schnitzel, smoked saulmon, and a wide variety of salads. The service was good and the beer...
