Fantastic food experience! Pricey! Ahi Tuna awesome! Visited twice while house hunting. First time visit received fast service, drinks and food. Second visit arrived late.

I had my two college kids and one of their friends out for dinner while on vacation. We picked Havana's because it was close and had seafood. We were a little disappointed in the variety and selections available. However, we found something for the four of us even thou it may have not been what we were thinking. The food... More

Great food, friendly Staff, and inviting atmosphere all at a great price. Within. Walking distance of our hotel (Hampton Inn) so we enjoyed a walk to and from the restaurant during our overnight getaway.

When the weather is nice, this is one of our favorite places on the island to eat. They take reservations which is awesome. They have a great porch for having dinner and enjoying the evenings. Occasionally when we've stopped in, they've had live music in the front yard which just adds to the whole experience. BTW, I should say, we... More

My daughter & I went for a late dinner and had to wait 40 min (in April) but they take your cell number and you can walk around while you wait. We were seated outside and it was a bit chilly but again they gave us the option of waiting for an inside seat. The service was fantastic, no complaints... More

While staying at the Courtyard Marriott Carolina Beach, my husband and I were disappointed in the nearby restaurant offerings until we found Havanas. We liked it so much that we ate there two nights in a row. Great outdoor dining. Friendly service. Tasty food. Large portions.
