    This "Dive" should remain hidden.  I was extremely disappointed.  Especially after the hype from Triple D's.  The food was extremely salty, over priced for the portion size, and not at all what I was expecting as a recommendation from Guy Fieri.  You definitely need a beer to wash it down with and plenty of hot sauce.  It was embarrassing to know that they actually have "Havana" in their name because it is a slap in the face to Cuban's, and I'm not even Cuban!  I suggest driving up the road on Dixe Hwy to HAVANA Cuban Restaurant if you want to enjoy Real food for a Real deal and a Real bathroom!

    Havanna HideOut is a great place to go for atmosphere ONLY !  The food is horrible - I don't know ANY local that lives here that thinks their food is even close to being good.  Service is bad too.  I go there because I enjoy the atmosphere - and ONCE in a while, you'll actually get a good Sangria.

    Am I the only one that noticed she's handling the food without gloves? She had them on only when she handled the meat. That's just gross and nowadays with so many communicable diseases, I wouldn't go on TV and put that out there. I was actually looking this up so I could go, but now I won't.

    Best fish tacos I ever had!  The outdoor seating area was nice and definitely felt like a hideout off the main road.  We were there for lunch and it was very quiet...looks like it gets more fun at night with the outdoor music area and lots of places to sit and drink.  The decor was fun and very 'island-like.'  Would definitely be a fun place in the evening for cocktails and appetizers.

    We found the atmosphere to fit the name.  A perfect Hideout!!!  Kick back under the tiki huts with your toes in the sand and enjoy some Caribbean Cuisine.  The Guy platter is a must do.  Their version of Shepards Pie is a twist worth trying.  Fish tacos were awesome as well.

    Awesome!!!!!  I went to Havana this weekend as part of our DDD tour.  We were convinced our server Shelly, owned the place because of her enthusiasm, knowledge of the food, drinks and neighborhood.  She isn't the owner but she certainly made our experience great.  We had the tamales and the Guy platter, both were great.  The fish taco is definitely the best.  I would highly reccommend this "Dive" for both food and service...A+++

    Saw this place on the news and on the net and was very excited to check it out. The location was cute and colorful with assorted tables and the picnic tables under the chickee huts were pretty cool. Unfotunately the service is awful. Laid-back service is fine but the service here is non-existent. My friend wanted to go pick her own food up cause we saw it sitting in the window for so long. Our food did not come out even close together. My drink did not come out until after I asked for it -- after I got my meal. No one ever checked back to see if we needed anything ( like another drink) and they got my friend's order wrong but we just decided it was not worth it to say anything. We asked twice if someone could wipe down our table but no one ever did. The ceviche was tasty but was mostly salsa. The salsa was excellent though and the chips were good but they were not warm as described on the menu. For the cost of a cup of sangria I could have ordered a real drink somewhere else. The beef taco was just ok. The server was not friendly -- I never saw her smile once the whole time we were there. The place is cute but the service was really slow and inefficient. it may be a fun place to go and hear music and maybe the pitchers of sangria are a better deal but the service really needs improvement. It's not like the place was busy.

    To the "bad reviewers" you obviously don't understand the native Floridian lifestyle. The food is excellent and certainly lives up to it's rep. It's a hang out, not a restaraunt. You go there to "Hideaway" hence the name. The owners interpretation of hispanic food is unique and therefore open to critisism. This is truely a little piece of paradise right here in Lake Worth. And to the no music?? Ric Pattison plays every Sunday,Tuesday and Wensday.He also hosts an eclectic group of regular open mike guests. Ric is one of the best hosts as well as musicians in Palm Beach County. "Mastering the customers experience"? What the heck does that mean? Your in paradise fool;look around. Hemingway would have been proud.

    This place is awesome - I had the cheviche (sp?) appetizer, pork taco, half Cuban, and the cuban sheppard's pie--I also tasted the quesadillas with the chicken and with the pork.  Best I've ever had!!  Better than any place in Miami (sometimes the meat there is too dry).  Bring napkins - the pork is so juicy.  I've been on a bit of the Triple D tour (7 restaurants in Florida, Georgia and Alabama) and the only restaurant that comes close is Alpine Steakhouse in Sarasota

    I recently visited Havana Hideout only becuase Guy from Diners Drive in's and Dives paid them a visit.  I figured if he was there it had to be good.  I was sadly dissapointed. The place has tremendous potiential but I gathered that appearance is not their number one priority. I went for the cuban since Guy said it was the bet in town....not true.  Publix on Southern Blvd make them batter along with Citgo gas station on 441 and LW Road.  One slice of ham is not a cuban sandwich and the Tamale was a cheese ball.  The service was great but the food not so great.  It was also missing music, a little salsa would have been nice, boring!!

    This restaurant could have a lot of positive going for it, but they have little interest in master the customer's experience. I ordered 2 items and waited for an hour for the food to be prepared. The bar tender told me my food was being bagged up, and twenty minutes later--still no food. When I opened the box I saw that there were raisings and other ingridients that I don't eat, that were'nt listed on the menu. When I tried to exchange the item, they gave me the shaft--a cardinal sin in the restaurant industry. Beware of Havana Hideout!

    We too were highly dissapointed. Tacos were soggy and tasted like they had taco bell seasoning on them  I tried the thre taco sampler, Beef,chicken,and pork and could have lived without all three. My fiance got the guy sampler plate and the only thing she enjoyed was the Cuban sandwich. I tried the fish taco and thought it was terrible. They charge you $4.00 for chips and salsa which is usually free any where else you go and theres was no better. We did like the area though and will probably be back to try some of the other restaraunts.

    I was truly disappointed that this place is featured over great Cuban places like Havan (West Palm Beach), Don Ramones (West Palm Beach), Tulpia(SP?) (North Palm Beach) and others that are cheaper in price and much more tastier. Plus it took my girlfriend , Liz and I three times going there to get a Cuban because they didn't have any or it wasn't served on Tuesdays, which wasn't stated on the show.   Still love the show.
