Went there for dinner and being a celiac it is always difficult to order, the waitress was of no help nor did she care about the food inquiry we made cause everything is wheat and dairy and no alternative suggestions. Only good for drinks

This place is amazing! I absolutely loved it. Free WiFi with ok connectivity. The service was great, staff are friendly. Food came out quick (which is rare in Mosselbay) the vibe is great, jamming music. Food tastes great, good portions and great value for money. No pokestop here.

Cafe Havana took a bit of a dip at some point, however it is currently one of my favourite spots! A high standard and quality of food has been maintained and the service is good. I enjoy the vibe at Havana.

The decor is what you'd expect of a Cuban style restaurant. Casual and rustic. The service was absolutely brilliant. Our waitress was very friendly and such a joy. The other waiting staff were also always popping by to see if there's anything they could assist with and the waiting staff clearly work well as a team. The Margarita's were DELICIOUS!... More

Whether you are looking for an intimate candlelit dinner with your partner, or cocktails with your friends, Havana is the place to be!! Interesting décor, comfortable seating and yummy menu. We always plan our trip to Mossel Bay with a stop at Café Havana!

Ate here one night whilst on our recent trip to SA. Interior is very little Cuba, with rustic charm. The food was lovely and we couldn't complain about the efficient service. Really reasonably priced. Do them the honour of dropping in if you find yourself in Mossel Bay.
