Lunch on a windy day and we picked a good, if hard to find spot. A Piece of Havana offers authentic Cuban food at reasonable prices. Friendly service and a diverse menu. Short on dessert selections but the sangria was excellent. Will return

Four of us decided to give this a try and we were no disappointed. We had ribs, whole snapper, skirt steak and crispy beef, everything was very good. The black bean side was some of the best we have ever had. Started off with the...More

Ate here before Carowinds (which was a questionable choice for pre-rollercoaster food, but not really the restaurant's fault). I was stuffed. Cuban food is so good and I enjoyed the whole meal.
