Awesome spot for authentic Cuban food. Portions were sizable and delicious. Appetizers were great too. Croquetas with dipping sauce were perfect.

We enjoyed Havana 1957. We had the chicken special of the house which was plentiful and delicious. We had mojitos which were generous and tasty. Our waiter was great. This is a great choice for a good, casual dinner on South Beach.

We found one on 16th st - municipal parking, around $17 per 24hrs. Better than the hotel valet which was $42!
