“Lunches for proletarians, dinners for parvenus”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

The restaurant owner has been keeping the lunch menu prices for many years. This strategy caused that the meal quality has deteriorated to an unacceptable level recently. For example, their typical baked potatoes as a side dish are made from potatoes which are prepared a day before. They are fools whether they think that their noon guest look like mostly as common workers. I have also gone for a dinner here in the two last years, and my experince with meal quality was very similar to lunch meal quality. I ordered a fish in two different visits and in both cases fishes were prepared from not a fresh filet but a frozen one. The final conclusion is, if you want to avoid diarrhea, do not go there for lunch.

“Much better inside that it looks from the outside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

As of my point of view, one of the best restaurants in Brno. The meals are delicious and everyone could find something good for him/her in the menu. If even not, you could complete your own menu and they will cook it for you. Coctails in the Havana restaurant are fantastic! They do have smokers and non-smokers areas (separate rooms) in the restaurant and they also do have a small playground for children. Very friendly staff is always very helpful. The restaurant have the biggest collection of rums in the Czech Republic and the waiters are able to recommend the "yours one". Whole atmosphere there is friendly and relaxing so you would feel as you were at holiday.
During the linch time, they serve lunch menus.

“Great place, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

Really one of the really good restaurants in Brno. I love the atmosphere of summer there and the music. You really feel like on holiday. Food is tasty and fresh - not any old vegetable. Very good cocktails, just the prices are little bit higher..but really great place and very friendly staff

“Great place & good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

Nice place with lovely atmosphere, delicious food & drinks, superb cocktails, very friendly staff. They'll recommend you the best meal according to your preferences :) Their collection of rums is biggest in Czech Republic and one of the biggest in Europe too. Would definitely return and not once. The only minus of the place is the location, but if you're driving - there's no problem at all.

“Good meal, higher prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2013

The atmosphere of the Havana Restaurant is stylish and pleasant. There is a kid's corner there, too. Toilets are clean. Food is very good; however, the prices seemed rather high to me. The personnel could be more courteous. It takes quite long to get your order.
