There is a great variety of dishes (beef, pork, chicken, pasta, etc). The food is well served and is very tasty! It's a good place to have dinner, especially on thursdays. It's not much expensive.

Had a wonderful time at this bar with a couple of friends from Tananzia, Rwanda, Ethopia and Zanzibar, We enjoyed the music, and the hype at the place as more and more folks came in either to drink, dine and dance. It is a Fab place.

We were recommended to go here by our cabbie. We were in town or just the night. Got here around 9 and ordered some seafood and chicken with our drinks. The food was above average and the service was good. The place has a nice chilled out vibe and the crowd is amiable with many expats and tourists frequenting the... More

I came twice to this little bar restaurant and I really recommend it. The service is lovely and effecient and the food is simple but good at reasonnable prices. You can eat and drink and the place has a good sound. People are cool and it's very easy to meet locals and expatriates in there. Good atmosphere.

Had the calamari and the Filet Wellington. Especially the squid was very good. The filet came with cream spinach and potato mash. Service was excellent.

The bar is good and also enjoy the food and the DJ does a good job. And the pricing compared to the other bars in Westlands is not bad.

This is possibly the kind of place you want to get to now in an unknown city. Good bar with animated ambiance and decent food. And very good music

We went to Havana on a rainy, Saturday evening, at about 8 pm. The place was moderately full but that changed with time. Our server was polite and took our order with a smile on her face. We ordered Tuskers (of course!) and the tortillas with guacamole. Super impressive! As the night went on, the music got louder and the... More
