I probably cannot add anything that hasn't been said about this restaurant, I love the pork (mesas de puerco). I love the yuca, and the sweet plantains, and the flan is heavenly

We loved the food at Havana Rumba, it was a refreshing change of pace from all the usual places we eat, and the dishes were great!! The ambiance of the restaurant was fun, and the service started out ok, but definitely was nonexistent by the end. That is the only reason I didn't give 5 stars. We had to flag... More

We celebrated my daughter-in-law's birthday at Havana Rumba. She had been there with friends previously, but the rest of our party were first timers. We all thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The food was well seasoned, hot and plentiful. The drinks were great and the service was fast and efficient. We will be returning.

The food was fresh, authentic, and delicious. The waiter went out of his way to make sure we had a wonderful experience. Definitely worth a visit.

I love this place ! Upon moving here, it was my top rated restaurant in Louisville. Upon entering, you are greeted with the hostess desk as a front end of an old car with headlights shining ! Drum barstools. Live music sometimes. Food was delicious ! Love the pork carnival !! And great mojitos

This is the best restaurant of the three in town. The service is always good and the food is consistent and at a fair price, the portions a good size and you can always be satisfied and even take some home for later or the next day.

Havana Rumba is a treat! I love the food here and still can't believe it is local. I love when a restaurant can succeed and thrive in a town because they consistently provide a higher quality than the competition. The food here can feel a little pricey for cuban before you take a bite $$$ but once the food melts... More
