This is an overrated place to hangout and to listen to music. The band is noisy, lots of cheap girls sit and hang around as customers. Waiting staff are sometimes rude, especially when they notice a local / Filipina sitting with a foreigner / tourist.

The area seems to be the centre of the local Saturday night activity. This visit coincided with the start of Flavours of The Philipines and for which 21 chefs cooked a giant piella for 1000 people just to the front of the restaurant. Great place to sit, enjoy a few cocktails and let the world go by.

A fun and busy bar in the middle of Greenbelt. Gets packed out as the sun goes down with a live band playing inside. Good mojitos and other drinks too. Just be careful about attracting the woman with dubious moral standards if sat outside on your own but a shake of the head is normally enough to send them, if... More

Early evening service was terrible, took 10 minutes to get drink. Staff totally uninterested in looking around to see if anyone needs serving. Since the service charge is mandatory this is out of order. Most tables had previous patrons glasses sitting there awating collection. No cleaning of the table, just the chairs re-arranged. Food quality has dropped significantly since last... More

Greenbelt is quite a nice area and cafe Havana is well situated within it. The service is ok and the cocktails are very mediocre. The band and style of music tends to be fitting and creates quite a good atmosphere. However this place is clearly used by prostitutes as a pickup. It's not too in your face but the place... More
