Great Food with lovely views.

I have eaten many times at this restaurant and it never fails to amaze. Although I do not particularly like Sun coast as it too busy and rowdy , Havana Grill is excellent. The atmosphere is awesome and the food excellent. We love the steaks and poultry as well. Service was also very good.

This was our second visit and it was as good as our first visit. The restaurant is lovely, a really nice restaurant to enjoy a night out with friends or as couples. The steaks are delicious here! Really good and perfectly done. We ordered rib-eyes.The sides are equally delicious. Yummy creamed spinach ( not swimming in milk), herbed risotto, chips... More

Suncoast is not what I would consider a place of interest despite being well positioned. However, this well lit Jukebox boasts one of Durban's greatest treasures, Havana Grill. The smart casual dress code and chic, elegance of the décor only gives away a little hint of what is to come. The menu is simply delicious, I caught myself salivating before... More

This nice and couzy restaurant worths a visit for lunch or dinner if you find yourself in Durban. Just next to the beach and with a wonderful view to the sea you can enjoy a nice carnivorous time. To start and warm the engines I started with havana nachos with gua camole and a nice greek salad. Then the Rump... More

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!!

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
