This is a new restaurant in the Roosevelt area mall. When you get in, you will be greeted by a frendly hostess, the decor is old spanish with a Cuban flaire. There are a number of small rooms for small private parties. Now , the food , out of this world, the mix appetizers , the hand made empanadas, the main dishes etc,DELICIOUS.The prices very reasonable. The staff all very polite and eager to please you.One more thing, on the Weekends they have live band, every week it a different band, you enjoy a great meal with a beautiful music, and you can also have a dance,or two.They also have a full service bar.Also on nice night, dine on the out door patio.Its my fifth time there.

Just celebrated Father's Day here and everything was great! ... Food, Service, Atmosphere! They had a live band playing and gave out a FREE hand rolled Cigar to the Dad's. Nice touch! You will not be disappointed!

We went on a Saturday night and had reservations. The restaurant was very crowded. We had to wait around 15 minutes for our table. The waiter, Joel was terrific, very attentive and personable. We ordered a pitcher of sangria and he made it up at the table with all the ingredients. The food was very good, I ordered the picadillo-like chile con carne with arroz moro-very good. Someone ordered the pork shank and that looked delicious. You can't go wrong with the churrasco steak either. We had brought a cake with us into the restaurant so we did not taste their deserts but they looked great. There is free valet parking if you are eating here.
On the weekends they have live music and a small dance floor.

Even though this restaurant is at the Roosevelt Field Shopping Mall, don't let the location fool you - when you walk in you think you're in an upscale restaurant - Hispanic charm. My family and I enjoy this restaurant a lot. We've been there just for lunch and special occasions. The last time was Mother's Day and we ordered a variety of dishes which were delicious. Find out when the band is there and that is a plus. Also ask to sit in the main dining room, where the band plays.

We went to Havana Central for my Sister's 65th birthday and it was wonderful! Our server couldn't have been sweeter, the appetizers were delicious! We were never rushed, although it was pretty crowded. Plus, they had live music- made it even more fun.
