I read the trip advisor reviews with other people enjoying the food, but what intrigued me to go on a Tuesday night was other people talking about the 2 for 1 entree special on Tuesday nights. We had drinks and appetizers and 2 entrees. When it came time to pay the bill I was presented with a bill for everything... More

There is nothing on the menu that isn't outstanding. I never miss the Chili Rellenos (on the Tapas menu)and from Steak Mojo to the Shrimp and Chicken Curry, the menu is varied and delicious. I have tried everything at least once and can't pick a favorite although I seem to order the Curry most often. I prefer the bar to... More

An excellent place to grab a meal especially on Tuesday nights when they run a "buy one, get one free" entree special. They have a variety of entrees most with a Caribbean twist. It appears to be a local's restaurant and bar with many groups coming to eat and drink. Their paella and chicken & shrimp curry are excellent Caribbean... More

My wife and I have been here twice in the four years we've been in Virginia Beach. Both times the food has been excellent I recommend that if you want a quiet meal with that special someone you go before 630. It is a happening place and gets kind of loud around seven. The food is top shelf and the... More

Perfect for an evening out. The service is Excellent. The ambiance is good. The food is great. If you are a chili-head, ask the check to add a Carolina Reaper to your Paella de Playa. He usually has a stash in the kitchen. It can get pretty loud on Friday and Saturday nights. I guess that just means it is... More

Whether you want a place to relax after work or you are celebrating a special occasion, Havana at Great Neck is the place to go! The staff is super friendly and the food is exceptional. The Happy Hour features great deals and the food specials are just that "special". Try the Chicken Nachos! Works as a meal or as an... More

I had dinner at Havana last week while visiting Va Beach. I cant believe I never ate here when I lived in Va Beach for 5 years. The Tuna app was awesome, as well as my scallop entree. They had 420 beer on draft, which was also delish. I will come back here next time I am in town!!
