    Not for those who know about real Cuban

    The ropa vieja was mediocore and the black beans were VERY dissappointing. They were water and had no flavor. I don't think they were even made cuban style. However, I will say their cuban sandwhiches were really great as well as the empanadas! If you've grown up eating latin foods you will be disappointed. But if you don't know much about it, this place will be just right because you won't be overwhelmed with spices.

    Fun Atmosphere - good food

    I have been to Havana Central a few times and before we went today I read some of the reviews. I was setting myself up for disappointment BUT was pleasantly surprised. Great atmosphere -decorated like Cuban island. Friendly and attentive service. Food was good, hot, not overly seasoned and tasty. All mains came w/ white or yellow rice, red or Black beans. We asked for extra bread w. our mussles and were given an order (free) of garlic toasted thin sliced French bread. Coffee was French Press for 2- only $4- We've paid that for one cup in NYC. we will definitely go back

    a disgrace to cuban food!

    this place is a tourist trap with a mess of heavily processed food! our waiter was extremely slow, the place was beyond noisy, and their ribs - which are touted as some of the best in the city - were tepid and too overloaded with sauce. do yourself a favor - don't go.

    Not your best cuban FOR SURE

    well i went there for lunch with a friend and we had the havana veggie salad, the pulled pork and the green fried plantains. 1) the veggie salad had a truckload of greens... and that's pretty much it, REALLY nothing special 2) the boneless pork with the claim on the menu that it "melts in your mouth" you will probably choke in no time, if you don't get a bowl of liquified lard, or a TALL glass of water to make that thing go down. it's DRY and just not really good at all. lacks in flavor, unless you want to use the HOT sauce which will give it a kick to make it go down. The green fried plantains are just plain ... very plain. I mean, plain oil sponges with no taste or flavor. I loved the black beans though..(HOW could one mess those up). and $4 for an espresso shot aliased as "cuban coffee?" not worth it guys.. but of course.. what do you expect in timessquare? the ambiance is cool though..i luv me sm salsa rhythms!

    I second that 'Disappointed'

    I've never had paella, and was pleasantly surprised to find that they had a vegetable variety, which I must admit, was quite good, and the portion was substantial. My boyfriend however, ordered the salmon, which was a huge portion, but - the fish was undercooked, the shrimp that topped it were bland and very fishy tasting, and the plantains that came with the meal were stale and overcooked. When we complained about the tostones, the waiter, who was very attentive and accommodating, brought us a whole new order at no charge, but for the price, it wasn't worth the unappetizing meal. Ordered the flan for desert, which was decent, but I've had better. Although not terrible, it was definitely not great.

    Do not have the Empanadas of Shrimp. Had 2 of them for lunch on Tuesday, August 13th and experienced an allergic reaction, not certain if the small shrimp inside were cleaned sufficiently, but don't take the chance. Service lacked as well, mostly with waiter. Requested no ice in our beverages, received ice. Requested yellow rice received white. Needs improvement.

    Not bad.

    Re: the service, I wouldn't go if you're in a hurry. But it wasn't like we were waiting for hours on end. Re: the food, not bad. Good portions and flavorful.
