I have eaten here several times, both in the dining room and also to go. Everything from the sandwiches to the entrees are amazing. Friendly staff and owners and great service.

Place was recommended by a good friend. Maybe it was mid week or the time (5::30pm)... I had been out and stopoed to place 4 orders "to go". I was the only patron and had to wait over 45 minutes. The "congris" rice, which is a Cuban specialty...was terrible, it was dry and tasted stale as if it had been... More

We have been eating here for over 4 years now. Once we first ate here, we knew this would be our place.

Al certainly knows his way around the kitchen and Tanya... More

We went there the other night after a fabulous movie " The Shack". Our party were all first timers at this cafe. The skirt steak was recommended. It was cooked just right...medium rare...to bring out the flavors of the steak and seasonings. This cafe is definitely a keeper. Bon a Petite.

Little Habana is convenient to one of my work locations. I routinely take guests there for simple, well prepared food. You will find Cuban style staples on the menu along with the ubiquitous Cuban sandwich. This is one of the few Cuban sandwiches i like - well pressed, crispy exterior and a tasty interior. The plantain chips with the cilantro... More

While driving down I75 we stopped for lunch. Quite a treasure just off the highway. We had lunch and my chicken salad was excellent and so was my husband's skirt steak.

Y husband and I love this place. I would have given it a 5 but they've gotten our order messed up a few times. The only reason we go back is the mess ups are still good and they are so friendly. I did take a visitor and they messed up our order twice so a bit disappointment on that... More

Little Habana never disappoints. We dine there frequently and use their catering service. The food is great, the service superb and you're treated like family. My favorite is moro rice, pork and tostones. This is a family operation and it's obvious there's a lot of pride there. I definitely recommend it.

Always treated with a smile and a warm welcome. No better food in the area. They make everything fresh. I have tried a lot of different things on the menu.

This small, comfortable restaurant features outstanding Cuban food, prepared and served with warmth and style by the owners, Alberto and Tanya. Visit a few times and be welcomed as a friend. It's all great, with fish and chicken dishes particular favorites. You really can't go wrong, and prices are reasonable, particularly considering the quality. Don't miss it.

Thank alwrob111
