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

The BBQ wan't my favorite, but the rice and beans was excellent along with the fried plantains and steak.

While visiting Charlotte, my group decided on Cuban food for dinner. We looked on yelp and found A Piece of Havana. The entire experience was amazing! Service was great. Food was SPECTACULAR (huge portions)! The vibe is really cool. We went on a Friday night and they had a group performing. There is a small dance floor where patrons could... More

Being from Miami my wife and I are pretty particular about our Cuban food. This place did not let us down! The service was a bit slow but when the food came out it was all forgotten. We were there for lunch but you can order a lunch or dinner portion.

We were here on a Friday night and had an absolute blast. The energy, live music, and dancing were so fun and the bar is well stocked. The food was good and satisfying, although not overly impressive, with nice portions sizes, and had a nice home-cooked feel to it. We will definitely be back for a fun evening!

VERY lively; very authentic! Food was great, but the atmosphere was even better. Music, dancing, very Cuban!

We visited on a Sunday for a late lunch about 2:30. Waited for several minutes to be acknowledged to get a seat. Then about 10 minutes to be asked about drinks. They came out about 15 minutes later. Was never offered water... more on that later. Hubby ordered a second drink, but it never arrived. Food arrived 45 minutes after... More

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 calamari and plantain chip with guac appetizers. Both also very good. Washed down with some... 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.

This edition of Excited about Eating takes us to southwest Charlotte and to A Piece of Havana. Growing up in Tampa, I have had the opportunity to eat at some authentic Cuban restaurants, but since moving to North Carolina, it has been difficult finding Cuban food. For the most part, they fall short of my expectations. Dora here. With so... More
