I visited Havana 1957 recently with my husband and another couple. The service was quick and food and drink arrived quickly. The servers were very polite and helpful. Some of the food was very tasty but my chicken was very dry, though I really enjoyed...More

Food was really good, service was prompt and friendly. My husband had a pork dish that he really liked and my chicken with raisins and onions was delicious. The entire area is charming, worth seeing

Ate here on our first night in SOBE. A great place to enjoy a cocktail (Not cheap) and people watch. The food was ok. Service very good. I doubt that I would return as I have now discovered some individual restaurants to eat in.

The place is a local chain with kitschy decor that is fun to look at. The chicken croquettes were different then expected. They puree the chicken and mix w bechemel. It ended up tasting like babyfood. Just not my thing. I understand the Cuban sandwich...More

Good Service. Loved the basket of fried plantains when seated. Mojito is 15 bucks. Sandwich and appetizers were around 15 bucks. Prices are on par with the area.

We rented a car and had to paid a lot for valet parking at the hotel. I would recommend walking if you can and park in the residential neighborhood if your there for just the evening.
