“Havana nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Great atmosphere, great food and great prices. Always a busy / fun / party atmosphere. With a lovely hidden den of a restaurant at the back.

“Expensive reasonably priced whisky served badly!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Tried Havana Bar with my good friend for decent whiskies. We were given a reasonable price until the bill came. The manageres had an attitude and the initial lady then changed her story, but still gave an other price than the bill. I don't mind paying for good whiskey, but employees should know their facts and management should remember that good and fair customer service keep existing-and bring new patrons.

“your typical pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Food was ok, service at par. It was a bit empty on a Sunday night. probably not the best time to visit this place. I was told that on Wed, Thu is packed with great atmosphere.
If you are walking there from your hotel you have to keep an eye on the shops as you can easily pass by this pub and not notice it.

“little hidden secret”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

first of all its not as easy to locate this restaurant, not because its hidden, infact its just on the road. you would pass it by looking for something big and eyecatching, i guess thats whats good about it. going in you first see a pub but dont be quick to leave because theres a very nice little cosy lounge at the back. the smoking zone is upstairs so you have the choice. the lounge is so cosy and warm it was amazing. i will take pics next time.
now, about the food. out of this world, and if the chef reads this, dude you are absolutely amazing! if ever i had good chicken or steak, it has to be in Havanna. I could honestly say the cocktail juice was a little bit more sugary than expected but everything else is great. If you walk into havannah and pick their menu, expect it to taste as good as it reads!! Happy eating lol!!
this has now become my favourite joint in westlands. after eating you can just hang out there you dont have to go look for another place. i hope you like it as much as i do.

“Cozy.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

On the pavement there is an outdoor area that doesn't really get going 'till late. Go in to the bar and you have a couple of TV's for sport though I wouldn't call it a sports bar! At the back there is a cozy little restaurant area, good for small groups and couples but forget big groups there isn't the room.
The food is good, pork chops with mash and there is a dish with prawns and mango salad that I like.
Service is generally fairly good and very friendly.
One small point, in the bar area don't expect to sit at a table and call it yours,when it's busy you'll be shufted up and given neighbours whether you like it or not! Can be a great night out on a good day.
Check out the paintings on the back wall of the bar...
