Good choice

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

Havana Grill is a place you take your wife for an anniversary or a special occassion like a 60th birthday. Not suitable for the kids. The decor is crisp and fresh and the view of the ocean spectacular. The restaurant is quiet and the service is tops. The food was really excellent. I can only say that the bill for... More

I, along with four work colleagues, dined at Havana last night. From the moment we entered, we were made to feel comfortable and even our request to change our table was accommodated. The staff are exceptional. Our orders were placed and we went outside for a smoke break. The waiter brought through our wine and glasses, and I thought this... More

I have been there many times. We even had our staff Christmas dinner here. The food is wonderful. I had a blue cheese salad some time back and that is what I miss as the last time I went they did not have it. They should have it on the menu again. Other than that there are also other salads...

Went here for my birthday meal and was not disappointed. A sophistacated place with a menu to match. My steak was done to perfection and the other meals were thoroughly enjoyed by my family, especially the mozambique chicken and lamb shank. The views over the Indian ocean are lovely. Will definitely go back. Highly recommended

Visited this restaurant after a long absence. Was not disappointed. Our group was happy with the friendly and efficient service. The food was great with one of the better rare steaks I have had in Durban. Good wine list. Will go there again.

We went there with another couple and had Mozam chicken,lamb shank,pork belly and crème brulé with coffee and a good bottle of wine. The staff were very attentive. Will certainly go back again and again.
