Cuban food in a romantic setting

When I first heard about Havana Cafe, I was very skeptical. That's because this is Cuban food; which isn't necessarily famous for being Vegetarian-friendly. And, truth be told, there aren't a lot of Veg options on the menu, other than appetizers.

Fortunately, there are quite a few of those; enough to satisfy vegetarians, at least on an occasional basis. That is, if they like plantains, black beans, and black bean or Gazpacho soup. There's also a delectable Spanish potato pie served with a zesty tomato sherry sauce; as well as sweet potato fries. Appetizers and soup mostly range $4-$5.

Entrees include fresh squash stuffed with lentils, corn, carrots, and onion, $13 (1/2 price at lunch); and a delightful rice, herb, vegetable, and bean dish, $15.

The setting (at the Camelback location) is very quaint and romantic. Which, in part, is why it's listed here; as Havana Cafe rates pretty high on the ambiance scale (see patio photo below).

For the price and the amount of vegan things available you can spend it somewhere else.
1st of all it toek forever for our food when we finally oredered. The waiter didnt even know about vegan and wasnt sure what was in what!
Also, everything is fried and greasy. I wouldnt go back.
