I've been to this restaurant a few times with family members and I promise this is the best Cuban food in California. The Croquetas were delicious, the empanadas were to die for, and the ropa vieja was soooo good. The staff were amazing as well. I can't wait to come again.
Love this dish
Order rare. Savory the oils and juices. My favorite Cuban dish by far. The reason is simple. Acid / Fat / Heat / Salt. The lemon is the perfect acid, the salt Brings out the essence of the meat while the fat and heat cook to a perfect bite.
This was so incredibly delicious. There was a wait for this BUT trust me when I say the wait is worth it. Love the food and the vibe. Waiters are amazing too and very attentive❤
The Plantains are awesome!!
Such an amazing surprise! This place is fantastic. I am Cuban so a bit pickier about Cuban restaurants than most. Tried just about everything on the menu and super pleased! Excellent place!
The Best! All my co workers love it
AWESOME Cuban food Better than in Havana LOVE to bring the family and friends here
Wonderfully satisfying, this East Meets West fusion is great in restaurant, and it travels to-go well too! I'm not a big rice fan, but the value of this dish overcomes any hesitation. Comfort Food, even if you've never been to Cuba! I'm bringing a party of 10 there on 9/1/19 and we'll have one (or 2!) for the table to share!
All of the food is delicious. My family and I eat here pretty regularly, I am Puerto Rican and Cuban food is the closest I get to home in SoCal. This place is my go to. The food is always fresh, pollo asado, lechon, yucca con chicharron, tostones, rice, black beans, etc. It is all amazing! If you aren't sure what to try, the Sunday Brunch is a winner for the whole family. The fresh made juices are amazing as well, my favorite is the guanabana. I never leave this place disappointed.
All the hearts for this dish. This is my go to dish at Habana Vieja. Worth the 45 minutes it takes to prepare. Its hard for me to order any other dish except the ceviche so far. I have been here at least 10 times.
The best chicken I have tried...I love the tanginess and the perfect onions!!!
I've been to this wonderful restaurant probably 10 times if not more. One of my favorite dishes is the Ensalada de Churrasco and the Ensalada de Salmon. I remember the first time I had it I was very impressed with the quality of the greens (very fresh and lovely young lettuce greens) with avocado and other yummy things on it. The meat was also absolutely delicious and they certainly didn't skimp on the size of the meat. The tamarind dressing was just perfect although I usually have it on the side. It is an extremely satisfying dish and leaves me perfectly full. I have never been to Cuba (YET!) but this dish makes me want to go there. I love the lovely timba and Cuban salsa music playing in the background of the restaurant. I often go during my lunch hour at work. The service can be a little slow but I always make it back to work in time. I'm so lucky that I work within walking distance of this fantastic restaurant. I recommend it to everyone I work with and any out of town visitors. I hope to eventually try everything on the menu. I've been to other Cuban restaurants in SoCal and this truly is one of the best.
Oh, so tender, buttery and flavorful. Makes my mouth water recalling the pork, plantain, rice and beans having Fiesta Delicioso in my mouth 🥰
It was delicious. Great Service! Great prices!
Omgosh! Sooo delicious!! I am so happy they opened this place up near my house! I use to have to drive to LA to get some tasty Cuban food! But not anymore! This food is sooo delicious! Always hot and fresh! Cooked to perfection 🙌🏼😍 I'm Cuban myself, and am always looking for a good Cuban spot. I highly recommend to come check this place out! I also love their media noche, & Cuban sandwich too! Everything is soo good!!! Gosh..I'm ready to go now! Haha
Anytime a friend is visiting this is where we bring them! My family loves Cuban food, every time we move somewhere new we have to find the go to spot and this is it! Authentic and delicious!
Flavorful and generous portion size. Exactly what you expect when ordering ropa vieja.
Delicious. Growing up in a Cuban household my abuela cooked all these and I have to say all the food at Habana Vieja tastes just like my abuelas. Everything on the Menu is Delicious. The tostones with the Ajo sauce AMAZING too.
First of all, I'd like to say that all the dishes that my family & I have eaten from Habana Vieja are all delicious. One of my favorite dishes is Arroz con Pollo. The way the dishes from this place are prepared & seasoned very good & flavorful. The staff has been very professional & courteous. I highly recommend Habana Vieja & look forward to eating from there again.
Loved the Paella. Great flavor and I love the way it is cooked to order. It takes a little longer but definitely worth it!
Absolutely delicious food! Husband and I enjoyed the atmosphere!
The chicken empanada's were exceptional. Perfect texture, and delicious chicken inside. This was my first time trying Habana Vieja's and I am definitely going to go back to try something different or have the empanada's again! #yum!

Excellent excellent well marinated pull pork!! A favorite of my husband and I. We do had the beef empanadas too.
The best ceviche I have had. When ever I come in; I always order ceviche as my starter.
this dish was absolutely amazing and seasoned to perfection! i took my girl on a date here. she loved it
I discovered this hidden gem searching for Cuban food in a convenient location to meet out of town family. Didn't read and reviews. 7 years later it's my favorite Cuban restaurant. I bring all my friends and out of town guests here and they now bring their friends. I come about once a month, and sometimes more often. My favorite dish is the ceviche and friends know I don't share. Get your own! I've tried many dishes from the menu and have not been disappointed. I would suggest the Sunday buffet to sample the variety of dishes. You can't go wrong at Havana Vieja. Take a chance like I did. BTW, the arroz con pollo is delicious. It's worth the 45 minute wait.
This lechon is so mouth watering, finger lickin good! The flavors just resonate in the meat. Your first bite will make you wonder why it took you so long to try it. Whenever I want to go back to my experience traveling to Cuba, I know exactly where to go! My local Cubano spot, Habana Vieja!
