A Cuban restaurant that doesn't sell the national dish, "Ropa Vieja." According to the server, Cuban dishes that didn't sell well were removed from the menu. Others have been truly Americanized, such as Picadilla chili and Picadilla nachos. I had the Picadilla with yellow rice and black bean soup. The Picadilla had a good flavor but the black bean soup...

Valentine's day... not super excited about frenetic service in overcrowded locales.... opted for Havana House... Arrived with minimal expectations other than their enticing valentine special email. On opening the door I let my expectations drop just a little further as we saw an empty restaurant - actually more of a cafeteria feel - naked tables and tiled walls. 6pm on... More

I've been here before. The previous meals were good, no complaints. The most recent time I ordered chicken empanadas. Was not impressed at all. Very bland. Literally diced chicken bits in crust and fried. I have had empanadas in South America & NYC. They were divine. Very tasty. Again, I've ordered other items off their menu and was very satisfied...

Went here twice while we had family visiting. Very friendly wait staff. We all had the burrito or rice bowl where you select and build your own from a list of fillings. Fresh and delicious! I don't understand why this great local spot isn't busier. Never disappoints. Get one of their coffees!

I love Cuban food but I'm always disappointed when I get it any other place. We visit our daughter here and my first request is to get carryout from Havana. Last night it was the best it has ever been. Cuban sandwiches were fantastic and the port was tender and juicy. Love plantains and they were tender and not over... More

The Best Cuban Sandwich in Citrus County. The blackbeans are perfect, the Service is very personal and warm you go away feeling like you have been honored for having been there.

I went in on a whim. Being a Cuban and living in Spring Hill we have a bunch of choices. So I wanted to try what seemed to be Citrus county's only Cuban eatery. Party of 3 around 2PM on a Monday with 2 servers working. You could smell pork roasting as you got out of the car. As an... More
