Well this is 1 of my favorite places as the level of service is outstanding. The food is freshly prepared and well presented. I personally love the ribs as they are soft melts like butter. The cocktails are top notch

What has happened to the Havana that I used to love? Firstly, the menu has gone all Jamaican....serious identity crisis going on here! Secondly, as a chef myself, I understand portions and weight....there is no way in hell that the tapas portion of ribs is...More

Poor, slow service. 1st order taken by two different waiters and still we had to enquire why it is taking so long. Excuses and obvious lies from staff given as reasons (she fell with tray, owner away, under-staffed), no beef for burgers(!) which we were...More
