An excellent place to grab a meal especially on Tuesday nights when they run a "buy one, get one free" entree special. They have a variety of entrees most with a Caribbean twist. It appears to be a local's restaurant and bar with many groups coming to eat and drink. Their paella and chicken & shrimp curry are excellent Caribbean... More

My wife and I have been here twice in the four years we've been in Virginia Beach. Both times the food has been excellent I recommend that if you want a quiet meal with that special someone you go before 630. It is a happening place and gets kind of loud around seven. The food is top shelf and the... More

Perfect for an evening out. The service is Excellent. The ambiance is good. The food is great. If you are a chili-head, ask the check to add a Carolina Reaper to your Paella de Playa. He usually has a stash in the kitchen. It can get pretty loud on Friday and Saturday nights. I guess that just means it is... More

I had dinner at Havana last week while visiting Va Beach. I cant believe I never ate here when I lived in Va Beach for 5 years. The Tuna app was awesome, as well as my scallop entree. They had 420 beer on draft, which was also delish. I will come back here next time I am in town!!

We visited the “Havana An American Café” on Great Neck Road in Virginia Beach for dinner in early June. We went on a rainy evening hoping the crowds would be lighter but they were not. It is popular with a lot of us locals but it is so loud most of the time you literally can’t talk to your partner.... More

Everything is good there - nachos are definitely to be shared. Steak is cooked perfectly and sides excellent. Servers are personable and attentive.
