Bienvenidos! Welcome to Havana South. We are perfectly situated to the traveler or the local lover of Cuban food. We are just off of I-985 and Buford Drive (I-20) at the corner of Satellite Blvd within walking distance of a Holiday Inn Express and within a couple of miles from other great hotels. We offer Authentic Cuban food that you can not find anywhere else in Georgia. Our chef, Juan is from Matanzas, Cuba and fires up some delicious dishes. If your nice he will make you something really special from the old country. Our staff is friendly and highly trained and ready to talk if you are. If your only in the mood to drink and hang out with some nice people look no further. We offer a full bar and our handmade mojitos are award winning. (NO MIXES HERE!). Best thing, no DUI's. You can walk back to your hotel if you say at the Holiday Inn Express near us. Don't forget about the best Cafe Cubano around and all homemade desserts. We'll send you home with your whistle wet, bellies full and ready to come back tomorrow. See you then.
