Enjoyed a lovely birthday lunch. The lay out of various tasty dishes was enjoyable. the grilled chicken is divine...the sauce complimented it perfectly. The pink cool-aid was something that brought back some old memories for me. Thank you for great service and delicious food.

A group of twelve we managed to order a variety of different items from the menu. Three courses each and everyone loved it. Service was prompt and ambiance great. Our third visit and everyone of them has been great.

Been there twice in 3months, probably only because I have a friend who smokes and they still have a smoking section. They seem to market themselves as a having high quality meat and steaks.

What a pleasant surprise to find an absolutely amazing steak in a Casino Mall. Really attentative service. Great that they had both grain fed and grass fed free range beef on option. Had the grain vs grass plate and it just prove to me once again cows are meant to roam the pastures. They were out of stock on Grappa... More

Great evening. An experience where the only Quich (whisky master) in Africa shared valuable knowledge.

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 love Cuban music and with such a colorful... More
