The food is just fantastic and there is a great variety for selection from small to large plates. Lots of cocktails to choose. The music was quite good and the service was leisurely but fine. A very enjoyable experience.

Food was under-flavored and disappointing compared to other Cuban joints we've visited. Drinks were OK. Wondering if the 1st string chef/staff were off during our mid-week visit.

Recommended by the owner of the house we were renting nearby we decided to give this a try. Good cocktails . Friendly,speedy service. Delicious food including tapas and salads and hot sandwiches. The children all enjoyed it and raved over the homemade fries. Good value.

My husband catches his own fish and takes it to Habanas and they prepare a great fish. The sides are amazing and it's plenty of food. The plantains and tostones are really good. Good for families, kids and large groups.
