Of the seven years I have been coming to LCI I have always enjoyed this restaurant. Twillla and her husband have been cooking consistent delicious food and tasty drinks. We had a lobster and a fish ceviche to start off with and then grilled lobster all around. You really only need it grilled with the butter on the side. The... More

Maybe it was because we just got off a boat and were in desperate need of nutrition and refreshments... but this unassuming beachside cafe served the most amazing, tender, juicy lobster on a coconut roll I have ever tasted! It was so good we went back again just to be sure. And it was not a fluke, that cook knows... More

We went to Habanos every day for coconut bread sandwiches. The grilled lobster was excellent. In fact all their meals were great. She is from corn islands and her husband is a chef from Cuba.

I liked it so much I wanted another the following day. I ordered on at another restaurant thinking it would be easy to duplicate... It was not. Havana has an AWESOME fish sandwich.

Probably the best service on the island. It looks like the young guy at Havana was the only server on the island that was actually trained. Always polite and respectful. We had lobster the first night and it was delicious, the plate looked fantastic too. Next time we tried their sandwiches - Cuban one is the best!! Ended up getting... More

Came by this place an afternoon after diving, looking for a late lunch. The place was completely empty, but the lunch sandwiches sounded great. Quick service and delicious sandwiches; the bread was fresh and the meat so tender. We tried coming back a couple of times later, but each time the place was closed:(

Stopped in for lunch with my nephew who lives on the island and enjoyed a true Cuban sandwich made by the owner. It was deliciouse and with a cold Tona made for a very nice lunch. Very nice seating area with a good view of the Caribbean.

Havana Libre was a very nice experience all around. I had lobster and my husband had fish . Both were very tasty in a lovely setting on the beach with good drinks and a beautiful sunset to top it all off. Prices were reasonable and service was good. The Mohito was great. Easy to find on the main sidewalk.

We stopped here for lunch and it was great. My cheese steak sandwich was delicious! I highly recommend trying this place at least once during your stay on Little Corn. The view while dining is really nice. It's a view of the gorgeous water. What's not to love about that?!
