Description: Havana Grill offers an unforgettable dining experience with the combination of great food, an extensive wine selection, humidor for cigars and an environment that is relaxing, yet remains up-market. With views overlooking the ocean, excellent meals and attentive staff Havana Grill is a must when visiting Durban, Suncoast Casino. The restaurant specialises in steaks where they proudly offer grain and grass-fed cuts of meat; as well as seafood, lamb, poultry and game dishes. The wine list and cellar provide a variety of South African wines. Havana Grill is a popular choice for functions and events as the restaurant can be divided into distinct areas; as well as offers two private dining rooms. The restaurant is an ideal meeting place for corporates in the private dining room; or friends enjoying time together over a delicious meal. Havana Grill is open Monday through to Sunday. Lunch is from 12.00pm (kitchen closes at 2.30pm) and the restaurant closes at 5.00pm. Dinner service begins at 6.00pm (kitchen closes at 10.00pm).

“Best at Sun Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Good food, friendly and efficient service, cosy atmosphere where we sit upstairs. Like the fact that we can smoke upstairs and not have to get up and stand outside like Plebs.Bought nice Che Guevara red wine glaases from them.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Over looking the beach front, the resturant gave a calming feel, the food was pricy for what you received but absolutely delicious, service was good!

“Great Food but Service a little slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

One thing we've found in SA is that it can take just as long to get a glass of water delivered to your table, as a fully prepared steak dinner.

Had an evening meal in the Havana Grill, very pleasent staff took us to our table and our orders were taken fairly quickly. Drinks and food arrived virtually the same time, I would of preferred a drink beforehand to be honest. So perhaps the management can look at the drink delivery.

The menu is very good and varied and the food itself was excellent - Cooked and presented to perfection.

My only niggle is that we ordered another drink during the meal, and it still hadn't arrived 30 minutes later. Yet when we asked for our bill, the drinks were on it.

The manager apologised, provided the drinks free of charge for us (although it was all a bit late as we were ready to move on). So excellent food, but some of the service can be improved.

Location in the Sun Coast Casino is very good.

Had a nice evening with friends, food was at a good standard but drinks were better. Service could have been better but it was pretty busy. Staff are all lovely
