Attached to the Bacolet hotel. Nice space in different levels all open under a roof. Good and friendly waitstaff. Pricey menu comparable to NYC prices, but does not match up on flavors. The fried calamari were decent. I had the shrimp which was so-so. The jerk chicken was a smudge better. The ambience and service are great, the food not... More

Ambience is not bad at all. However the food was horrible. Presentation was horrible. The restaurant is infested with flies. Didnt enjoy the food. Thumbs up to staff, they were pleasant and welcoming.

Had 2 visits to the Havana during my recent holiday and whilst the food was excellent, the staff were opposite ends of the spectrum on each occasion. One of our party has several food allergies, and on the first visit was treated very well in that she only had to explain what she could and couldn't eat only once and... More

It is hard to say which of Havana Cafe's many, many problems is Problem Zero, but surely the primary rule for any restaurant ought to be that it should respect its clientele by serving decent food in a professional fashion at an appropriate price. On this visit Havana Cafe failed to offer either good food or decent service. Asking guests... More

While the ambience is nice, the food is below average and very expensive. Jerk chicken I'm sure is not fresh and was very rubbery and dry. They cover it in a bland sauce to try and cover the dryness. Ick! The burger was ok...fries were not fresh or they were day old. Our bill was $88 us for jerk chicken,... More

Had dinner 1 night. Food was good and well presented, Staff is very friendly. However, it is extremely expensive, even comparing with European price levels. Not worth the cost.

We came for Dinner at Cafe Havana after going into town and failing to find a decent place to have a birthday dinner. Baccolet is not known for its restaurants, in fact, most restaurants and closed at night time so we were left with no choice but to go to Cafe Havana which is the restaurant of the hotel we... More

This was the best food we had for the whole week stay in Trinidad & Tobago. So in Tobago we had our first real dinner. Was very nice place, service... More

I visited this restaurant/bar on the Thursday before Republic Day 2016. Given that it was during the week, the place was completely dead. That didnt faze us though, and we proceeded to sit outside and have a round of drinks. The prices were not bad and the decor of the restaurant is quite nice actually. My issue was with the... More
