Nearby for a conference, went out for a walk at lunch. Plenty of options, but Habana Restaurant stood out in the online reviews. Difficult choices, given a wide number of menu options. I settled on the pulled pork sandwich... it was excellent!

The seating was outside, but very pleasant. I ordered a pork dish which was excellent and my wife had their chicken, also outstanding. Service was good but a little slow.

Habana is like a little slice of Cuba on the doorstep of Orange County Airport. There is a charming rustic vibe that made me feel as if I were dining in a Cuban courtyard. Many trees, lots of eclectic artifacts, rough hewn tables, and mismatched...More
