Great slow food in original atmosphere

The atmosphere is truly different: samba-like. A large space has been reserved for dancing and that's what people do. Prices are very reasonable and the food is ok: not as fatty as you would expect from south-american cuisine. Don't bother to order wine, have cocktails. They're great. We had a... read more

When you have a friendly host it's all good. I was wondering around, saw the menu and he spoke to me and I decided to have more drinks. Just because he's friendly.

Just good food, nice atmosphere, live music after 2130 ( missed it this time). I was only a short time in Nice, but this is one of the places I try to visit when I am there.

Came with a couple people. It's a great place for drinks and of course some dancing. The place has great ambiance. Good bar drink, price is right, you're in Havana IN France. There was some guy singing live and we were dancing to it. It's pretty cool. There's an upstair/balcony you can still here music from downstairs and watch people... More

We had a very good evening at Le Havane. Good drinks and food and excellent band to dance to. Reasonably priced considering the laid on music and entertainment. Would return.

We visited for dinner and had a tasty and reasonably priced meal. The mixed grill was very good and the Jamaican beef (beef with tomatoes) was also nice. Ordered medium and was a bit more in the medium-rare side, but still ok (didn't need to send back). Both meats accompanied potato cubes and vegetables (it's not mentioned in the menu).... More

After a long day of walking we needed a break and having past the Havane several times decided to give it a try. Good decision. Friendly atmosphere, good Cuban music and a waitress who knows how to make you feel welcome. It was happy hour and the drinks were very reasonable. My sense is that it is probably a fun... More

Spent 2 evenings in this bar while in Nice. Staff were great and friendly and the food excellent. Music was real Cuban and the live music awesome. Would go back again next time in Nice.
