Cuban Restaurant
$$
“Cuban food and drinks with a twist. Cuba has always had something magical about it. Time appears to stand still, classic cars own the streets, old traditions are upheld and cigars are still being hand-rolled. Here at Havana Beach we are passionate about creating a unique and unmatched ambience. We are here for our locals. We love our customers and our team which is like a family to us. Our goal is to become one of Sydney’s best cocktail bars, whilst always keeping our roots in mind. Because like the Cubans we strive to uphold traditions - for example with both our Cuban food menu and our authentic, classic Cuban Mojito with fresh mint and lime, Havana Club rum and lots of love.”
