The food is superb, service faultless and atmosphere relaxed. The food is tappas style. Only downside is you pay mains prices for tappas size portions.

We stopped in at Havana before a movie. Service was great and food came quickly. To me, that also seems to be it's downfall as it almost felt rushed. The food was fantastic - particularly the oxtail which my husband loved so much he ordered...More

So: sharing plates of tapas - 7 types all well presented brought to table skilfully in quick succession. Vegetarians only slightly catered for, but what we had was nice. Loved the roast cauli and prunes, and an artistic choke purée was lovely. Mushroom allergy knocked...More
