I have been dining at Havana Grill's Clairemont San Diego location since they opened. I have tried many menu items - all of which were delicious. My favorite plate, however, is the Lechon! There is so much flavor. I order it with the rice con gris. The portion size is a great value. Taste it and fall in love - like I did!

Being a Cuban myself, Ropa Vieja has always been the dish I get when judging Cuban food. Havana Grill did a great job. Their beans aren't runny, seasoned perfectly, and the meat was delicious. The ambiance of the restaurant is friendly and authentic. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any visitors looking for a great place to take guests.
These oxtails braised in wine and spices are so delicious and the meat was cooked just right, it falls off the bone. The sauce is so yummy. I can eat this every day. My new favorite at Havana Grill!
My Go To menu item at Havana Grill. The pork is always tender and flavorful and goes perfectly with the sides and plantain. It is a generous serving as well so I usually have enough left for lunch the next day.
My partner and I love Fricase de Pollo so much! This is our go to order because the chicken is so moist and the tomato sauce is perfectly seasoned. I love the congris and sweet plantains that comes with it as well. Eating this dish feels like eating a home-cooked meal made with lots of love :)
I had it! The BOMB!
The chicken was moist and everything was delicious
During this time of staying at home I felt like I was traveling to tropical Cuba every time we ordered from Havana Grill. One night we ordered the family meal and dressed up in our colorful vacation clothes and Cuban hats. We ate outside and watched the sunset thankful we could be together. The chicken is always moist, the steak is always cooked to perfection, the shrimp is succulent. The plantain chips make me smile. We always order congris -rice and beans mixed together to create the perfect marriage- I love to drizzle the mojo garlic sauce over it. I have mentioned the mojitos... they will knock your socks off maybe more items of clothing if you drink more than one. We also love ordering the different desserts- flan like my grandmas, guava paste pastry (you won't want to share ) and perfect size macaroons. If you eat inside the air conditioning is great too! Thank you for delicious meals with family and friends.
This is my favorite dish, because is really tasty and filling. The staff is really nice and welcoming. I love my Cuban food, Soy cubano
I guess it's 5
My wife and I have had this meal many a times. Delicious by far the best paella we have ever had. Moist and very flavorful.
One of the best, but be careful with the kick it produces.
Some of the juiciest and finest chicken in San Diego. Amazing sides and sauces too -- the mojo is the best! Our favorite date night spot.
This is one of my favorite Cuban dishes and Havana Grill is the only plaxe to get it done right. The congree is some of the best I have eaten, I like the smokey flavor. And the plantains are always a treat. Don't forget to finish with the guava and cheese pastry.
So good! Great comfort food. Love that they use healthy, clean ingredients too.
This is the bomb! [Especially when Sylvia makes it! :-) ] Try it, you'll love it!
This sandwich is so good. It reminds me of eating it on the island. Definitely recomend!
My husband and I would come over here for lunch all the time! It's one of my favorite places to eat, especially since there aren't many Cuban restaurants here in San Diego. I chose Fricasé de Pollo as my favorite dish since I tend to order that more than all other items on the menu, but I've tried everything and they're all amazingly good! Sometimes I can't make up my mind! The Fricasé de Pollo is so tender that it falls off the bone. The sauce has lots of flavor and the olives make it even better! The potatoes, which are also drenched in the sauce, make a nice side dish to it. Once I start eating, it feels like home! I love that this place also makes their dishes with organic ingredients.
Simply Amazing! Hands down the best steak I have had in years. Perfectly cooked, texture and taste were great. The black beans are my favorite. The rice is simple and good tasting.
Salmon was delicious and so was the service. Enjoyable dinner with my significant other. Highly recommend it.
This was my first time here and it did not disappoint! The sandwich was a good size and had a great balance of flavors with a nice touch of spice. I will absolutely be back to try more of the menu soon.
This is one of my favorite dishes here. The beef is super crispy and flavorful, and I like that the entree's come with a side of fried plantains. Also, that the portions are pretty large so I usually have enough left over for lunch the next day. Definitely recommend.
Entering parking lot, you can smell the spices and intoxicating aromas. Once inside you are immediately transported to Cuba. The sandwich was a blessing. Omazing!! Hot, fresh, meaty, cheesy, crisp pickles - just the right amount of everything!! I ordered a side of yucca fries which were perfectly seasoned and delicious. The mojo sauce is addicting! I will 1000% be back to try other items.
The empanadas were delicious! They had great flavor and had a perfectly crunchy outside. They're even better paired with the sweet plantains.
This is some of the most amazing pork I have tried. The flavor and juiciness are unmatched! The slight smokiness of the congri and the sweetness from the plantains balanced the salt of the lechon perfectly.
I was thrilled to be able to order this with gluten-free bread. It was absolutely delicious and I'll be coming back for more soon!
My go-to dish. Always fresh and hot. The onions go well with pork making every bite taste like it was your first. The cilantro and the black beans are so fresh with tons of flavor that complements the rice and the plantains nicely.No flavor is too strong, to soft, too salty, or sweet. Highly recommended.
Wow, you need to get here....The food here is next level delish!
WOW! Just wow. The Rabo Encendido just melts in your mouth. This dish is full of flavor. Be prepared to share this dish. Or not. Either way, this dish will not disappoint.
Dinner here was sooooo tasty! We had ropa vieja, fricasé de pollo, picadillo, steamed yuca in mojo and café cubano. My least favorite was the picadillo, it was missing caldito but still tasty. We will be back!!!
This is my favorite dish at Havana! The steak is perfect and the shrimp is a nice accent. I only like my Mom's rice and beans. Instead I get extra madros.
This is the best lechón in San Diego. Juicy and flavorful, the sides were amazing. The black beans are my favorite, but cannot forget the yuca fries and the platanos maduro. The Cuban sandwich deserves an honor mention as well.
I just had the Ropa Vieja with congris and it was amazing. I have been waiting for the Rabo Encendido to be back on the menu and decided try this instead and it is equally delicious. Of course I had to finish with the guava and cheese pastry.
This is literally the BEST seafood Paella in town. I do not eat meat and what a treat to have this delicious item. I live in the South Bay and will drive to get this dish!!!
Delicious shredded beef dish with excellent flavors. Generous portion that I can use for a sandwich tomorrow. Make sure that you get some sangria to go with it. Sangria was muy sabrosa (delicious) Black beans and sweet plantains were very tasty as well. We are glad we discovered this restaurant.
Delicious! And the staff (Sylvia) handling our takeout order was wonderful!
Delicious! I have not eaten any restaurant food since shelter in place. My sons want to treat me to a Zoom meal and this is the dish I thought of. I'm hoping to order it on Saturday! Yum!
I was dying to have my usual. We bought spinach salad and citrus chicken. We enjoyed our food and I was very happy to see that they we so busy today. We have got to make sure this GREAT restaurant does not close it's doors! We can do this Clairemont and beyond let's support our restaurant.
