I visited Havana Club towards end of June 2014. Since it was Saturday night, the place was flooded with people. Though there have been lots of negative feedback about the place but I personally feel it comes down an individual as to what are you actually looking for and what u really want to see. The place has a decent... More

I was visiting Makati and a expat friend took me here. She had warned me the service was poor even before going but she liked a particular dish they served so we decided to go. I must say the food was very average and the staff service was very poor. The female staff wearing the havana style hats need basic... More

The place wasn't too crowded I think because we went there in the afternoon. We ordered a mojito pitcher and by the 2nd glass we were all very happy. The staff were helpful and courteous.

This restaurant is in the surrounding space of greenbelt 3. It is in a very enjoyable position (even though it is sort of part of a mall which is a setting I would not normally go for). The staff is very friendly but the service takes some time. Some of the cocktails were average but some of them were excellent... More

Never saw so many unaccompanied beautiful women in one place as I did here. I'm kind of glad my wife is in Tokyo at the moment. The drinks were good, the prices were reasonable, the surroundings were beyond beautiful as it is set in a park-like setting. Never had salmon ceviche before and it was awesome. I am beyond impressed... More

The ambiance was not really good, it's crowded. But the food was really good. Nice staff, good service. Reasonable prices.

Way too over hyped... This place just feeds off of dirty, sleazy travelers or expats looking to scope out freelance GRO's ... Just sitting on a chair might send u to the clinic with itchy balls..... Mixed drinks and food are mediocre and dull.... Basically, Over hyped , Overpriced, and Un-hygenic.....

Good food, great atmosphere both inside and outside. Lots of friendly people, though maybe a bit too friendly at night time. Doesn't seem very busy during the day, so probably a good stop to relax after a hard day's shopping in the G3.

We diverted to this place because all the local coffee places were full. Apart from this one.... The coffee we ordered was lousy. Can't see anything positive about it. Cant believe that a coffee place has lousy coffee. After the coffee I have left and will not go back..

The drinks were OK and the setting was good in the center courtyard of the mall, but the service was memorably bad. It's like they were in competition with Cervesaria (next door) for which servers could be the rudest. I honestly went here to avoid the other after being rude myself to the servers there (trust me, they deserved it).... More
