Went for dinner on Saturday night in a party of 10. Every one was happy over a wide variety of meals.
Service was excellently provided by an experienced confident waiter.
Overall excellent.

“Fantastic food, exceptional waiter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

We have been recommended this place several times and finally got around to trying it. Should have done so ages ago!! The food was delicious, gorgeous wine, lovely atmosphere and our waiter (Clifford) was amazing at his job...fantastic knowledge and memory (we were all so impressed and felt very well looked after.....hope he's well paid!!)
We have a holiday apartment close by, so will make this a regular eatery each time we visit!

“Little Havana........fantastic.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

I was recommended this restaurant by a local whilst watching United lose again in a bar in Umhlanga. He was a brit who had lived there for over forty years. He said i wouldn't be disappointed. I loved the Bar Ba Coa and thought that would be hard to beat but the Little Havana set a new level of excellence. From the starters to the steaks and the beers all were cooked and served to actual perfection. The food was simply amazing andbecause of the strong pound were for me extremely good value. Would I recommend this restaurant............... Hell Yeah!! If ever you happen to be in Umhlanga pay this place a visit as the guy said to me... You won't be disappointed.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

We were recommended this restaurant by the guest house we were staying in. We decided to go to a 'nice' one and 'splash out'. Although this was an upmarket place, it didn't feel at all pretentious but was fairly relaxed. The waiting staff were eye attentive and always on had to top up your glass. The meals were very well presented and the steak was delicious - possibly the best one I have every had; juicy and huge! I'm not sure if it was down to a great pound-rand exchange rate but this was also exceptionally good value for one of the 'more expensive' restaurants. I would recommend the food and will no doubt compare any future steaks to this!

“Great recommendation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

First time here, although we often visit Umhlanga. Friends recommended it. Well, we just loved it. And we're food snobs :)
Elegant, bug not formal. Well presented and prepared food. Good wine. We'll be back !
