An Authentic Cuban Experience In the Heart Of Charlotte

For more than 14 years, A piece of Havana has served the people of Charlotte.

A famous Cuban proverb says, "A love that can last forever takes no longer than a second to become about." I can think of no better way to describe the love affair that your taste buds will discover when they are exposed, even if for just a moment, to the incredible flavors being presented at A piece of Havana. we built our restaurant with immense love, hard work, always ensuring that we are carrying out our mission with sacrifice and immense dedication for what we believe in and do best, we continue to do what we love, which is introducing as many people to our authentic Cuban cuisine; we are dedicated and committed to continue working and improving our quality in each of our dishes and our customer service.

The roasted garlic chicken is legendary in Charlotte and the chef hasn't missed a beat in perfecting it here at A piece of Havana. Practically falling off the bone when you simply look at it, the crispy skin and delectably marinated meat guarantee your palate a love at first bite experience, a mixture of flavors and texture almost too good to be true.

All of the Cuban favorites are on the menu. Ropa Vieja, which means in Spanish "Old Clothes" is true Cuban comfort food, feeling good like a comfy shirt and faded, stone washed jeans. Tender shredded beef simmered in a tempting sauce served, as are most of the dishes, with rice, black beans or sweet plantains.

The garlic shrimp is served in a spiced, garlic butter sauce that will have you asking your server for seconds,

I would drink that sauce if it were served in a shot glass.

A piece of Havana also features a Cuban Paella for two that is mouthwatering, Suggest calling ahead for this one as the menu indicates it takes 45 minutes to prepare.

The restaurant is spacious, very clean and cozy, there is an ample selection of wines and both bottled and draft beers. Word is spreading fast, the restaurant is always packed at 6:00 PM on a Friday and Saturday evenings, reservations are a must in order to enjoy our weekend live music shows. you can not miss it.
