A friend and I ate lunch at Little Havana on 24 June. I was a little apprehensive as I know they are considered a fine dining restaurant and price was a consideration. I need not have worried about this at all. The lunch time specials are R120 for 2 courses plus a glass of wine and R130 for 3 courses... More

This is such a wonderful place to eat. OK it's not cheap but you get what you pay for and here you get plenty with an excellent choice of a variety of foods from Beef to Pork to Game to more. Portions are great and the deserts do not disappoint either. The service is well attentive and the setting one... More

Had a lovely surprise when I went there with friends for dinner as I am vegetarian and they specialize in meat dishes. Had a great salad for starters and a lovely veg Stir Fry for mains. My friends did have meat and they really enjoyed it as well

We did not eat steak, which we should have done. The pork belly did not have a crispy crackling. It was rubbery and seemed to have sat under the hot tray for a while. The wine options were very limited. Restaurant had a nice atmosphere.

I went for dinner here for a company function and it was brilliant. The service was great and for a table of 30 we all managed to eat at the same time. I had the salmon gravlax to start and it was fresh and delicious. The rump with chimichurri was cooked to perfection and the chimichurri was not oily like... More

Warm welcome even without reservation. Went there already 5 or 6 times and tried all kind of different mains, all of them were really good. The steak is excellent and it comes as ordered, rare, medium rare etc... The service is excellent and people remember what you ordered without writing down any order. Best is to make a reservation though... More

I found food quality to be a bit unpredictable, ranging from excellent to quite average. The restaurant is very busy & noisy.

No Cuban food here, but great atmosphere and South African dishes. The smoked springbok carpaccio was outstanding! The filet on the bone (500 gr) with bone marrow was great and the lamb shank was awesome. Great wine selection. We will be back! Thank you!

To be rated the best steakhouse in SA is a big statement , and they definitely don't live up to it Nice setting & service, but very average steak! I've had better & tastier steaks at general fast food joints! They pitch a good story, but the food definitely does not live up to expectations!! & overpriced for the quality... More
