We were there for lunch and enjoyed the good service, the quality food and the beautiful setting, right on Durban's beachfront! Six people - and not a single complaint or moan. On the contrary - everyone was full of praise!!

Really excellent food & wines selections, service & presentation. Staff extremely helpful & friendly. Well placed tables preventing overcrowding. This restaurant is situated in the upper level of Suncoast complex, with lovely sea views.

I wasn't sure at first because I'm not a big fan of Suncoast, but I was pleasantly surprised by Hanna a Grill. The view of the beach is an added bonus. Three of us shared the seafood platter. It was more than enough for us! It offered a great selection and great variety, and was more than enough to feed... More

When it's time for a steak, the obvious local go-to is Havana Grill, and when we visited this week, we weren't sorry! What a treat! Just like an old friend, Havana simply never lets you down. Service outstanding, views stretching across our lovely Durban seascape, and absolutely sensational starters, steaks and salads. Meat, as always, hung for ages and cooked... More

Ordered the lamb shank. Was tough & chewy like a lamb chop. Had to use a knife to cut it. My friend ordered pork ribs that tasted sour & like it had turned bad. Sent it back after one bite. The manager was absolutely rude. Implied directly that the ribs were not the problem, the problem was my friends palette.... More

Don't be put off by the location of this little gem - it is sheer class. It is a little pricey but its great to treat yourself for a special occasion. The food is sublime and the cocktail selection is out of this world. A definite must visit on anybody's restaurant bucket list. Great service, great food - GO there!

Visited this restaurant three times in a month. The service is first rate & the food is to die for. Went there on a Saturday, Monday & Wednesday night & on each night it was packed. Some of my family had the oysters & I had the Calamari, each of these starters were delicious. The steaks are hung until the... More

This review comes from TWO visits thus I can vouch for consistency. I took my wife to Havana Grill for her birthday and the food was nothing short of incredible. The first visit was on a Friday night and I was actually excited to hear the chef in the background ensuring the meals were prepared and placed perfectly. My wife... More
