stopped here for dinner on a reco from a friend. The friendly manager helped me with the menu since it was my first time trying Cuban food. Had the house pork dish. It was so tender and juicy with an amazing flavor. There was enough

Havana Rumba always serves a great meal with super service. The servers are friendly, and although it can look intimidating in the front room, which is small, I rarely have waited too long for a table. The guava milkshake is awesome and enough for two and the sandwiches are delicious with sweet potato fries. The yucca and the vaca frita, empanadas, fried potatoes with beef, bread, they are all fantastic.

Pros: milkshakes, sandwiches, drinks

Cons: strip mall location

His is hands-down my favorite restaurant in Louisville. I love the chimichurri steak and the vaca frita. The plantains are my favorite item. The staff is friendly and the service is quick. Mojitos are good too.

Pros: Not expensive, great Cuban food

Cons: weekends are busy, but it's worth the wait.

Great latino food. Different from old Tex-Mex. Everything was good except the waitress, he was kind of rude. But not all of them were like that. I'll be back, for sure.

This one will have you coming back regularly. The food is delicious. Try the Shrimp sauteed in garlic and oil with garlic butter, rice and fried plantaines. Great bread is served for an appetizer, with garlic butter. For dessert get the havana bananas. Ice cream with fried bananas, syrup....yum. We have also gone just for tapas. A big stacked server tray full of different appetizers, olives, empanadas, things like that. It costs around 20 dollars, and we got a pitcher of Sangria that went well with it. Best Sangria in town. The staff is very nice. Good mojitos. If you go on a weekend night, go early, as it gets full and stays full during dinner hours. There can be an hour wait on some fri and sat nights. Worth every penny, tables are decorated with Cuban decor, cigar boxes, etc. Full bar in back. A few outside tables, but inside is better. The pork dishes are great, tender delicious meat. Also Cuban sandwiches are good. Everything is!

Tucked away in an unassuming strip mall off the beaten path in the St. Matthew?s neighborhood, Havana Rumba is worth finding. Service is prompt and friendly, even on busy weekend nights. You are not likely to find a better mojito in town, either. We have been there several times and try to order a new dish every time, and haven?t been disappointed yet.

The ropa vieja (shredded beef in a savory tomato sauce) is a real find, as are the masas de puerco (deep-fried marinated pork chunks); however, it?s the sandwiches that really stand out. Growing up in Miami, I have really high expectations of a Cuban sandwich, and theirs is well above par. However, for a truly unique taste, give their Havana Rumba special a try. They start with a Cuban, then add chorizo, roast red paper and a spicy garlic aioli. Not terribly authentic, true, but when it?s this good, who cares?
