Small, personal and FUN. The owners own enthusuiasm is contageous for other staff and partons alike. They know their business here and those that come leave as loyal return guests. Did not see a long face all night, EVEROYONE seemd to be having a ball. As for the live music.. go on a night Dave Dow is playing and enjoy.. the guy is a wizard with guitar and vocals.. he reads the crowd, includes them in his performance and again with a healthy does of FUN. Not a place for intimate conversations as the music takes over but a fantastic place to hang with good friends. 10/10 Havana, a quality establishment with something definitely unique to Cairns.

We went to this restaurant for dinner and asked the server if they would recommend the ribs or the curry. They suggested the ribs. Sadly we both ordered them. There was virtually no meat on them. The sauce was nice, but I have never had ribs will less meat. Server (waitress) was pleasant and enthusiastic. The person who took the drink order did not know enough English to figure out draft beer.

This was a dinner prior to going to a show at the Civic Theatre. The staff were most helpful and gave us really timely service in spite of having a tour group meeting going on. The meal was very tasty and I would like to return for a more leisurely meal when there is time to enjoy the live entertainment

Enjoyed a few drinks and a great meal while listening to a wonderful accoustic guitar (and intermittent drums), great songs we can relate to.Thanks Deadly! Meals are very good and HUGE, loved the coconut prawns. Waitresses sing and on our night it was the lovely Amy . We were made very welcome by Brett. A memorable night out.!

Only eaten here once, because you only make the same mistake once. The food is very bland and the waitresses might as well be working in a bank. However, the cocktails, live music and atmosphere are terrific! Great place to come for a drink...
