Our first taste of Cuban food in Miami was supposed to be a quick lunch but the size of the portions - we ordered Cuban sandwiches - were so big we ended up spending several hours there. Time passed quickly though as the Cuba Libres were excellent and the service was just the right mixture of friendliness, courtesy and efficiency.

Service is good. However, disappointing - nothing special food. Nothing more to say about it. Not recommend waste of our time if looking for Cuban gourmet cuisine (if such thing exists).

Decided to have drinks....me a bloody mary and my companion a pineapple mojito. Both very good. They did not rush us to leave the table and we were able to people... More

I was shopping and with many options on Lincoln Rd I was very happy eating at Havana 1957. Food was great. The service was fast at first but then a little slow at check time. Yes I would come back

This place had a variety of choices to eat and the drinks were very good. I had the Cubano Sandwich which was huge - two people could have shared this.

The hostess was rude and spoke about us to her manager in Spanish not knowing that we understood what she said and acknowledged it. After waiting for a table inside we ended up outside on a windy night. We" served very salty plantains chips which they might as well just given us a cup of salt. Water were stored in... More

The house specialty Pollo Havana is a fantastic chicken dish with Cuban gravy, plantains, rice, and beans. Wonderful flavors!! We also enjoyed the Yucuita Frita appetizer - very tasty. The staff was very attentive but not overbearing. Will definitely return here when back in the area.

Great food and great (strong) sangria. The wait staff was great with our kids, too. They have a great patio, so we sat outside. It had plenty of shade to keep us cool.

Enjoyed lunch here with my daughter. We sat outside, it was kept cool enough with a fan- recommend outside to enjoy the scenery. She had the chicken vaca frita and I had the garlic shrimp and we shared the tres leches for dessert- all delicious! Great service and attentive staff even with it being busy.
