Had the calamari and the Filet Wellington. Especially the squid was very good. The filet came with cream spinach and potato mash. Service was excellent.

The bar is good and also enjoy the food and the DJ does a good job. And the pricing compared to the other bars in Westlands is not bad.

This is possibly the kind of place you want to get to now in an unknown city. Good bar with animated ambiance and decent food. And very good music

We went to Havana on a rainy, Saturday evening, at about 8 pm. The place was moderately full but that changed with time. Our server was polite and took our order with a smile on her face. We ordered Tuskers (of course!) and the tortillas with guacamole. Super impressive! As the night went on, the music got louder and the... More

I have been here dozens of times and it has the most imaginative specials, the most varied standard menu, and a great meal every time you go. Some people shy away thinking of it as a bar first, but there's lots of room to slip away into a corner if you don't want to feel crowded and before 9 or... More

Killing time to go back to the airport, after a hot day, Havana was a good spot. Proper guacamole with tortilla. Could be cleaner.

Enjoyed a couple of drinks at the bar here without getting harassed ... centre of Westlands. Does not look much from outside but is the closest I have come to a "pub" in a long time in EA.

This is a nice place in Westlands Nairobi. What most caught my attention was that the Bloody Mary drinks were the nicest ever. There was some kind of a chili to spice it up which made it excellent.

Meetings had run over time & needed a dinner in central Westlands. Decided that I had passed by this place many a time and should venture in. Was pleasantly surprised, quickly shown to a corner table, menu presented (evidently no specials) and order taken. Chose the Cordon Bleu with some sides. Within reasonable time all was delivered and must say... More
