Great food and nice music

I've been there twice while in Nairobi this month. The food is great, especially if you're looking for a break from the local dishes. Great selection of fishes and meat, super tasty. As usual in the city, the service is poor and slow. Lots of room for improvement!

Came here for drinks on saturday night. Nice music, fair prices. Wasn't exactly crowded cause there was a new bar opening across the street, but it was chilled out and we loved it!

Havana is a nice , not so expensive pub and restaurant in downtown west lands,Nairobi. I was there again last night. Although this time around, due to huge kitchen orders, our food came 90 minutes late, the hosts provided free two dishes of calamari, and a free round of red wine, while we waited for the food. Value for Money... More

I go to Nairobi on business 4 to 5 months a year and I always stay in Westlands and always go to Havana for food (most lunch times). Can't fault it! Bar doesn't have too much light but don't worry too much about this.

Have had late lunches in the well lit lounge upstairs, pleasant. Also a few nights out, far from the madding crowd. Last week after a few cold beers I discovered the ladies room had liquid soap in a bowl for us to dip fingers into. Quite the grossest thing on this planet. Worse still, given the 24hour nature of our... More

Nice music, great food and service. Nice small tucked place along busy Westlands street. It's good to go to an establishment where they know what they're doing. Never disappoints. I love going in the evenings for a drink or meal with friends.

People are often surprised to hear how good the food here is! Steaks are really good (the beef wellington was a standout), and the tex-mex is not bad. Service can be very slow, so don't arrive too hungry. Cocktails are decent, but not great.

Place is top! Good crowd, chilled atmosphere Dj spin's good classics on the wheels of steel. I'm in NBO every 2 weeks and this is a must every Thursday for a ThrowBack. Much better than Gypsies for the day of the week KeepGrooving
