A group of about 12 of us went here for dinner and drinks. We did not have a reservation, but the Manager was most accommodating. They put several tables together in the back and we were set. We were set near a window so we could still see into the streets. The food was awesome, but the drinks were absolutely... More

We bumbled around Bastille looking at the sights (and there are some!) until we came across the Havanita nestled away in a lively side street full... More

But the cold cut meat dish is way too expensive for the portion and quality of what you get. Also if you're a big party, I recommend double checking the number of drinks on the... More

La Havanita has a nice and cosy interior. The cocktails are great, I like the Hemingway a lot. Service is very, very friendly and every day between 17h and 21h there is happy hour. This is one of the best spots in Rue de Lappe!
