Open seasonally (beginning in the spring), solar-powered Habana Outpost is unlike any other restaurant in NYC: Its initiatives include rainwater flush toilets and the use of sugarcane and corn utensils. While the food—well-executed rice and beans, grilled Mexican quesadillas—is reason enough for a visit, on weekends little ones can also partake in supervised, eco-friendly projects.

This place just screams SUMMER! and I love it. It's definitely a Mexican restaurant - not Cuban, but the food is delicious! Mexican corn, fish tacos, and a pina colada for less than $20 in New York? Sign me up. It is cash only and the ATM inside is always out of service BUT if you cross the street there's Habana Outpost to go and they accept cards. Grab your meal and frozen drink and make your way back to the terrace under the colorful umbrellas!

Such a great vibe at Habana! You can't go here and just not have a great time! The food is tasty! (Get the corn!) Frozen drinks are totally worth the money! (Mojito anyone?!) Sit outdoors or in! They have movie screenings in the summer in the garden! Even the bathroom is awesome and educational! Located in the heart of Fort Greene you're close to so much! Great spot!

Great vibe, super cheap amazing food. I got the cheese quesadilla, chips and guacamole and the catfish sandwich (which I would HIGHLY recommend) all for less than $20. It's a great oasis from the city and the space is great. Picnic tables, a food truck where you pick up your order from and a fountain. 

I will definitely be coming back during the day with a large group as the outdoor seating is plentiful and the picnic tables make it a perfect environment for groups.

this place has good summer vibes written all over it. the outdoor area in the back is great—although it gets super crowded when they have movie screenings. the sandwiches are great and it's a nice place to drop by after catching a show at BAM nearby.


I love it here! Habana Outpost is right in the center of Fort Greene and conveniently located right next to the G train. It's so colorful! Also, you have to check out the renowned eco-friendly bathroom when you go—it’s pretty creative. I think the food is great (tacos and corn with cotija cheese is a no-brainer), but the atmosphere is definitely a huge contributing factor to the draw of this place. There's a huge outdoor seating area where there’s sometimes outdoor movies. They played Thelma and Louise this summer! Also, this is a perfect place to take a big group of people—you can really spread out at a picnic table.


I really wanted to be a super fan of this place,  but unfortunately the experience was just OK nothing stellar.  The drinks were a couple dollars more than I expected but nonetheless they were good.  $10 will get you a flavored margarita or Mojito. In my opinion the drinks are better when the frozen part has melted away.  Habana outpost drinks can be real creepers so be careful lol. For food, I ordered the hamburger which was actually really delicious and freshly made.


The outside seating is really cool and bright and inviting.  Habana is located in a really cool area in Brooklyn. The way Habana works inside is that you wait online to order your food, pay, and once your food is ready you look on the screen that shows your receipt number and go out to the food cart in the back seating area and get your meal. 


The ambiance and environment at Habana is very inviting and laid back. I will definitely come back here to try and see what all the super hype about this place is  because I didn't see it the first time.
