Great food!

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.

The food, the drinks, the atmosphere were amazing you must visit. I would recommend it for sure, but it's not for everyday.

Not Greek food is that place for me! If you want a break of the traditional Greek food you can go there to enjoy special dishes. I love their drinks as well. I hope they will provide a website in English

It used to be one of the greatest restaurants of its kind in Thessaloniki due to its unique atmosphere, cuisine and food quality. However, it seems to have deteriorated over the last two years! Hopefully, it will improve because the old Habanera was truly great!

I was so excited to try this place as I'd heard good things from acquaintances and because I'm a huge fan of Mexican and Cuban cuisine but the experience was beyond disappointing. My boyfriend and I arrived in the evening to an almost empty restaurant housed in an absolutely beautiful building. Nevertheless, the service was abysmal - very slow and... More
