The best steak that I had in a long time. Atmosphere is great. And they have extensive wine list. Make table booking on the loft.

Started of the evening with a Beautiful Beef Caparccio, then melt-in-your-mouth Ostrich as a main and then a perfect-finish crème brûlée

My partner and I loved the Havana Grill and would highly recommend it. They have a good menu with lots of different and interesting meals. My partner had the T-bone steak which was cooked to perfection and I had the best pork belly I have ever tasted. Meals are huge so do come hungry!! The service was also very good... More

Ever since we tried a Havana Grill taster plate at the first Taste of Durban, we have been dying to try them out. They always presented themselves at The Taste as edgy and original and it was with great anticipation that we put them on our list of reviews this month.

I enjoyed the meal, but felt the atmosphere not to conducive. Very noisy, not the exact place for a romantic dinner.

Poor service and overpriced meals. Menu is quite limited with not many variety to choose from. Once ordered, the meal took a very long time to arrive (45 minutes). Poor communication by the waitress. Not happy, Not going back. Not recommended.

Steak was chewy although requested it to be medium-rare. Food took very long to come and portions were tiny leaving most people at the table hungry afterwards. Food lacked flavour. Not value for money at all. Only good thing was the wine.

If you want a good steak, this is the place to go. A little pricey, but you're payng for good service, the ambience, comfy seating and the great after dinner port sitting on comfy couches.. A long relaxing evening that you don't want to end!

This restaurant never disappoints. Visited on mother's day. The service was impeccable, even though the restaurant was full, and food, as always, was exceptional. The cup cake gift for the mothers in our party was a thoughtful and welcome addition to a wonderful lunch.
