As my title suggests, I went for the seafood platter, thinking that I would receive a small but varied selection of seafood. What arrived was a very large and diverse selection of seafood. Cooked to perfection and with a little spicy sauce (just as ordered). Excellent. My only complaint is that I am not a smoker but after starting eating,... More

Sadly, this was a very poor experience from this normally exceptional restaurant. My wives salad is served incorrectly , 10 minutes later they realise the mistake and serve the ordered dish, but no vinegar and oil as asked for , are provided. My sirloin ,medium rare is served as this grey slab of dry meat with a sinew through the... More

Havana Grill is a definite when you are in Durban and looking for good food, especially good meat and wine. This is where good steak meets good service. The cuts of meat are all well matured and very well prepared. The waiters normally come around and show you what cuts are available and are very capable in assisting you with... More

Wonderful service and really good food. Even my husband was impressed with the steak. I ordered chicken and really enjoyed my meal. A stroll on the promenade after the meal, is a really good idea! Wine list was pretty good too!

I believe this place has the best steak in town. Wine list covers my favorite wines so food and beverage has a good match. Service is first class.

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.

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
