Just had a great evening at Habana Cuban restaurant on South Congress. We ate in the bar and Joshua the bartender took care of us all night long. He recommended the Cuban nachos and Cuban sandwich and both were great. And of course the fresh lime mojitos are the best in Austin. Loved the atmosphere and music and kudos to... More

What a great find. This restaurant Is downtown and we live North, but it was well worth the drive. The atmosphere was fun. The food wonderful. My husband had a sort of stew that he can't wait to go back to get and I had a ham and roast with Swiss on plantain with black beans and rice. Yum! Oh,... More

Maybe I've been to Chili's, Jason's Deli and the like once too often, but to me, eating out at this restaurant was like a mini vacation. The music, the atmosphere, the very handsome gentleman who showed us to our table, experiencing new food flavors ... we all loved it - o.k., my daughter and I were enamored with the gentleman...

We had been to Habana many years ago and were not really impressed but we decided to give it another chance on Friday. Habana is located adjacent to the Great Outdoors Nursery which is a rather quaint, beautiful, peaceful place itself. We parked in the front of the parking lot and my wife wanted to walk around the nursery so... More

I see there are some mixed reviews for this restaurant, but I had nothing but a great time. The food was absolutely fantastic - the slow-cooked pork was the winner, but the tostones (appetizer) were also delicious. Makes me wish I lived in Austin so that I could go back here more often! OK, my mojito wasn't as fabulous -... More

Was there today. Place was nearly empty inside and a few people on the patio. Our party of 2 sat inside. Hostess did not seat us. Too busy watching TV she pointed to some seats and we sat down. Had to ask for menus and was told our waitress was the bartender and we would need to wait a bit... More

I've been here a few times. Not bad overall, but a few things that keep this from being authentic Cuban food. First of all, it is in Austin, and 90% of the population expects tacos or enchiladas to be included in any hispanic cuisine. Second of all, you can't find Cuban bread in Austin- which is essential to the Cuban... More

The food was very good. Our first time to try Cuban food. The waitstaff was helpful. The seating for a party of nine was awkward and everyone on one side had to stand up to let someone by. The prices were a little high for the salads and the dressing was extremely spicy for one of our party who couldn't... More

Austin always has fun places to go that keep with their theme of "keep Austin weird." Habana has fantastic authentic Cuban food. We sampled the Lechon marinated pork roast with yucca, cuban sandwich and would you believe they had a non-alcoholic Mojito. Everything was wonderful. The Mojito was crisp and cool, very refreshing. The pork roast and sandwich were tender... More
