This restaurant feels so out of place but same time really refreshing after munching on Greek food for days. I haven't visited any better non-Greek/Mediterranean restaurant in Thessaloniki so far. Big portions and great sangria! I absolutely love the decor too.

An old house converted to a restaurant, a city institution since it's been around for many years, Caribbean food that is colorful and tasty ... good staff and lots of hip people.

Good food for people who are hungry! Biiig portions! Prices could be more reasonable but the quality and quantity makes up for it. And as always, perfectly executed cocktails.

Unfortunately, what used to be a unique in its kind restaurant-bar with special dishes, has turned out to offer poor quality food. Nothing special, enormous plates of food with bad taste, badly prepared. I would not recommend it

I am a frequent visitor to Habanera when in the city. Main reason - the food is incredible good as is the wine. The waiters are more than firendly and since I have been there a few times they tell me what or what not to order. In a party of 8 when we order the waiter said "that is... More

This is a pretty little restaurant in a charming old building and they serve very good cocktails. Unfortunately, the food does not live up to the atmosphere or the drinks. It is really very pleasant for a drink but I would not advise anyone to stay to dinner. You can do so much better elsewhere.
