Visited the sun coast entertainment complex to host some vistors to durban. The meal was tasty and was very well presented. Even though we were a big group the meals were served promptly. The decor was good which contributed to a relaxing atmosphere.

We had a company dinner at this place. The staff was very attentive and helpful. I had a steak and as a meat-lover I am not easily impressed. The fillet was cooked to perfection, the wine list was adequate and the deserts were amazing. Everything you can wish from a restaurant with a low price tag (compared to a European... More

I've been here twice. The food is great and the atmosphere rocks. The first time I had their fillet steak which was absolutely awesome. This time round I had their boneless ribs which was good but a bit dry and very salty. The service is great and they even have a nice cigar room with a good choice of Cognacs.

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening out. Our meals were well presented and cooked to our specifications. The risotto and fillet steak was tasty and my dining companion raved over his ostrich steak. The magical mojito is a cocktail not to be overlooked...

Went to Havana Grill as part of a conference dinner. It was probably the best experience I have had from a restaurant for a large group. The starters were a delicious Tapas selection with chicken wings, beef strips in a spicy sauce, bruschetta, samoosa, calamari and spicy sausage. All were excellent. The mains were a selection from a set menu.... More

Crisp white decor - white table cloths and napkins - white crockery. Food is well presented. Service was great. Enjoyed the food - especially the Béarnaise sauce. Chef gave me the recipe.

Havana Grill has a pleasant outlook towards the sea, which is why I assume people come here. It cannot be for the set lunch! A two-course meal for R100 and three-courses for R120. The soup of the day was a roasted tomato soup, which was tasty. One person asked if the soup could be replaced by a small side salad... More
