Amazing atmosphere if the weather is good on Thursday nights! Everybody stands outside on the road ... feels like a street festival or so! Inside a bit rustique and crowded. Do it if you happen to be around on a Tursday night and you like a little bit of party and action!

Thank Stephan M

Dear Travelfan thanks for visiting Havana and sharing your observations about the Thursday nights on Tripadvisor. We can't wait for the weather to get warmer and have an even livelier crowd at the outside bar. Talking of warm weather we are pleased to let you know that this year Havana will be opening a bar and restaurant in Diani. Thanks for your support.

We went to lunch here a few days ago. As you walk in it looks like a dingy bar, the lighting is very dim. I asked a woman wearing a Havana shirt at the bar if they were open for lunch, she ignored me and kept looking at her phone. Another woman came to greet us. We sat in the back which has some nice booths. The food took over an hour to come, there was only one other customer in the restaurant at the time. The servings were odd, almost small. The vegetable fajitas came with 2 tortillas, no rice, no beans- only veggies. But it was tasty. But the overall feeling was that we were not welcomed at that time. All the staff were busy chatting with each other. We won't be going back.

Dear Kate,

We truly apologise for your experience at Havana, waiting for your food for an hour is not acceptable. We investigated the incident and reprimanded the staff on duty. Thank you for helping us to become better.

Havana seems to have got the word of mouth reviews. This place is usually very busy and noisy on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, Mixed type of nationalities who come over for the drinks and the loud music. Food is average. Staff are there to serve. The beer glasses are not washed properly. I do not expect to go there again in a long while.

While on a business trip I had dinner and cocktails at Havana. Nice vibe, upstairs and downstairs venue with a pleasant bohemian vibe. Good prices and will return.

If you are into cheap and nasty this is the place for you, that said the drink is not cheap but the area and bar is.
