We went to Habana for Cuban sandwiches and mojitos and we were not disappointed. The service and food were both great. The mojito was tasty but small for the price. It was a quality drink, however, and definitely not watered down. The patio seating is nice but overlooks the road. The waitress said they never get crowded so I suppose... More

Habana is in my top 3 favorite Austin restaurants. The Cuban sandwich is out of this world. When I traveled through Miami and the Keys I tried many sandwich cubanos - none came close to the juiciness and full flavor Habana's offered. The papas fritas are my favorite fries in town too. I recommend sitting in the small huts they... More

I found the menu to have an interesting mix of dinner items. I was a little surprised not to see sweet plantains on the menu. I ordered an appetizer of plantains and got them fried and they were green; tasty , but not what I was expecting.

We love this place. The portions of the plates are great and as we're Cuban we love the smell of our hometown once we get in.

Well when you order 3 meals and a side order of rice and it comes to almost $60... When you get your food and it's sloshed all over your car's seat and inside the bag, why should you eat there again!!! I also left them a tip. The MOD Mr. driskell said that the habana never gets complaints and if... More

After driving or walking by many times on our visit to Austin, we were tempted by the cabanas out front so came in for a meal. Good food and fun to have a little hut to eat it in.

As a Cuban-American I'm a pretty good judge of Cuban food and this place is excellent. Remember it's not going to be spicy like Mexican food but it will be very tasty. Try the roasted pork.

It's rare when everything exceed expectations, and Habana did just that. The service was attentive, friendly, and informative. The food was spectacular - with delightful flavors and ample quantities. The menu is varied, with enough varities to please any palate. The desert of Tres Leches cake, one of my favorites, was the best I've ever had. All of this in... More
