“Great Atmosphere, Staff and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Was recently in Belfast for business and was recommended this place by one of my colleagues as it was near where we were staying. Cracking place with really cool decor, really friendly and fun staff and really good food. Would recommend it to all who fancy good food in a relaxed atmosphere and don't want to pay through the roof for it!!!

“Fantastic:-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Tried this place last night (26 Sept) with my other half and we loved it! Interior wise, its cool and funky and very welcoming. Staff could not do enough for you, without being over baring! Got a sense that they actually all seemed to enjoy their jobs and weren't the normal grumpy 'I'm doing you a favour by serving you' crowd!
Food was delicious as well, we had the crab and prawn and breads and oils/dips (one small issue was the bread was just average) to start, the dips were especially good. Then for main, salmon with cous cous and a pork dish, everything was presented and cooked well and was very tasty.
To top it all off, this place is BYO!!

A must go..........

Excellent food, nice atmosphere, clean, friendly staff and bring your own drinks. The menu choices were varied and suited exotic and mediterranean dishes. I will be back and will have told all my friends about you.

“Can't rate highly enough!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

I very rarely write reviews but last night we had dinner in cafe Havana last night, friends, husband and my 2 kids and was so impressed just had to give them a review today!
We fancied something but different n not expensive and heard of this new Cuban place so thought we would give it a go! The decor is so funky and fresh and Latin music playing created great atmosphere!
The staff where amazing, so nice and helpful, as our wee group weren't well aquatinted with Cuban food, they advised us and we're so approachable especially to my 3 year daughter (some places you go and waiting staff can't be annoyed withs kids, in my experience anyway)
The food came and it was beautiful! Not one scrap left! I reccomend the monkfish and churro's!
We all had a fantastic night with brill craic, lovely surroundings & great food! So happy it's here in belfast! Il def be back!
