    Go there at the weekends for live Cuban music. Get the Braised Beef, Peppers & Onions platter with plantain appetizer.

    Love the atmosphere. Staff is always wonderful and very helpful, especially the first time I went. The tamales are the best I've tasted and the corn on the cob is great. Stop every time I go to NYC. ♡

    Food is surprisingly delicious and drinks are quite tasty as well. It can get quite loud, so it may not be the best option for date night

    The portions are extravagant. The food's not great but if you're stuck in Times Square you could do much worse than Havana Central.

    Live music on the weekends. Amazing food. Churrasco accompanied by the greatest chimichurri in the city is a must try here. Strong but delicious mojitos. And the atmosphere is just wonderful!

  • Joan P.

    Mango Salmon was good but it was the Shrimp Mofongo that took me back to Puerto Rico. Go for HH & order a sangria but expect a large loud crowd of people at the bar.

    The food is excellent. Order the pernil mofongo. That said, don't put couples up on the balcony in that tiny table with two chairs. Very uncomfortable.
