For the shisha places so far its one of the best. Service is also outstanding. They have enough stuff to serve and they are very well trained. Keep it up

Visited the Havana Cafe across from Marina Mall in Abu Dhabi recently and was very impressed. Took no time to get served and seated and had mixed grill and was very nice. The quality of Shish or Hookah is of a very high quality

Food is delicious Special space for children to play Very good prices Sometimes very crowded and too much shisha smoke But the open area is ok Appropriate for families and the people like middle eastern environment

View is ok. You would expect better in a habour. Diner was not that good. Ordered a steak. Raw. I got it well done. Had to send it back. Second attempt was better. Vegetables coming from a can. A lot of locals come here for smoking with waterpipe.

Lovely food with great prices... We had been looking for a place to eat in the mall for over half an hour and couldn't find anywhere, and then went across the road and road and found this great gem.

Thank rory m
