Description: Havana Grill offers an unforgettable dining experience with the combination of great food, an extensive wine selection, humidor for cigars and an environment that is relaxing, yet remains up-market. With views overlooking the ocean, excellent meals and attentive staff Havana Grill is a must when visiting Durban, Suncoast Casino. The restaurant specialises in steaks where they proudly offer grain and grass-fed cuts of meat; as well as seafood, lamb, poultry and game dishes. The wine list and cellar provide a variety of South African wines. Havana Grill is a popular choice for functions and events as the restaurant can be divided into distinct areas; as well as offers two private dining rooms. The restaurant is an ideal meeting place for corporates in the private dining room; or friends enjoying time together over a delicious meal. Havana Grill is open Monday through to Sunday. Lunch is from 12.00pm (kitchen closes at 2.30pm) and the restaurant closes at 5.00pm. Dinner service begins at 6.00pm (kitchen closes at 10.00pm).

“Good food, pricy by SA standards but incongruous casino backdrop”
Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

God food, steaks and service and a great wie list. However a bit spoilt by the somewhat tacky casino environment giving it a downmarket ambiance,

“Great food -bit pricy”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

The meal was great and the service was excellent. The steak was really something to write home about. I did find the meal very pricy though.

“Tough Steak - poorly prepared”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The Restaurant came highly recommended, but our experience was not great, from the tough and sinewy steak to the mediocre service received. I am told the dessert was great, but for a Grill Room, the Steak should be tender and served to perfection

“Excellent (again) ,,”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Visited Havana for Mother"s Day and once again we were impressed with the quality of food and service levels. Everyone at our table had starters, mains & desserts and not one complaint. I had the lamb shank, it was cooked to perfection, other guests had the t-bone (aged 30 days!), seafood curry, lamb chops and rump steak. Everyone enjoyed the meals. I've been to Havana on numerous occasions and not once were we disappointed. Waitering staff excellent. A BIG THUMBS UP TO MANAGEMENT & STAFF!
