The music collection is also something else! They always have a song I like playing. And when the in-house DJ is around, things go a notch higher. I frequent Havana... More

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.

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.
