A very relaxed atmosphere, we loved the food as well as the music. We went there for a very important meeting and the staff were very kind.

I was last here 5 years ago. This time I had a birthday celebration with family. The staff were excellent. It's been a while since seeing a waiter remember everyone's meals without taking down details. Nice job. The food was just excellent. The wine list expansive. And the relaxed ambiance of the place. The list could just go on.. Check... More

This is by far the best steak I have ever eaten, and at good South African prices. Waiters are very friendly and helpful and will often advise you on which steak or how to have it cooked. All of us, including the kids, absolutely loved it. Wish there was one at home!

I have made three visits to this restaurant in the past two years. I the past I have always enjoyed the seafood dishes, especially the fish. This visit was a real disappointment. We were allocated a table in an area that probably would not usually have a table. When we pointed out the lack of light, our server brought us... More

We went to Havana after the wine tasting on Friday night. It was a pretty average experience when compared to the outstanding visits I've had there in years gone by. My T-bone was ordered med. rare and all I can say is it was a little tough. In all fairness they were very busy but for this type of money... More

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. We had steaks (different dishes) on both occasions and the quality of the meat was at best average. In fact after seeing their menu and their... More

The food at this branch has gone down over the years. Quite possibly resting on their laurels . Very sad . Ate the Mozambique chicken. Not as good as I remember. Doused ( and masked ) in sauce. Chicken livers and calamari a similar unfortunate encounter. Service is enthusiastic bit ineffective. Asked for wifi password only to be told that... More

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.
