In Louisville on business, and couldn't wait to have lunch here! This time we tried the queso dip starter- really great with fried plantain chips instead of tortilla chips. Highly recommend! We both had the Havana Rumba sandwich- fantastic! Can't wait til we visit again.

One of my son's favorite restaurants they took us for lunch on a recent visit. Food was great, abundant and menu offered great variety. Lunch prices quite reasonable for the quantity of food and our waiter was welcoming and funny.

The food was quite good, but we called in advance to make a reservation. When we arrived, there was not a table ready, and we stood at the entrance waiting for about 30 minutes. It seemed a bit disorganized. I understand that reservations can be...More

I've been going to Havana Rumba for years because it's always fun & convenient, but hadn't found my favorite dish. You know, the fish you think about and get a hankering for that makes you want to go back again and again. I wish I...More
