Great place to have your credit card ripped by the staff! Yes the place is full of prostitutes but they are not the problem. The staff are the problem ! This place really should be shut down and new opperators take over. My wife who is a philapina had her card ripped for over $1000 au ! They even reloaded... More

I went with some colleagues on a Tuesday night after dinner. We were only after some drinks and the options were certainly extensive including beers, spirits and wines. I did notice food on the menu as well for those looking to combine food and alcohol. The area for Havana's is quite vast, outdoors on the fringe of the Greenbelt gardens.... More

My soup & main course was filling & I will rate it as slightly above average. I notice the staff were so busy that service to almost everyone comes across as robotic, rushed & with a plastic artificial smile every now & then. Understaffed perhaps? Or taken for granted that there will always be customers due to their reputation &... More

Food is actually really good. Priced a little higher than surrounding similar offerings but we cleaned our plates ! Nice live music at night and good canned music otherwise. You really few transformed to the Caribbean. The downside : hard to get servers attention because of the noise and setup of the outside tables. Friendly servers though. Very smoky. San... More

The lunch buffet is very good and price is reasonable. Please reserve a table ahead, as this place is usually full during lunchtime.

Ate lunch on a Sunday. Restaurant was nearly deserted. Black bean hummus was tasty: wait for entrees to arrive at the table seemed on the longer side. Cuban sandwich was good but I can't give an accurate assessment to a real Cuban sandwich as my exposure to Cuban food is limited. The service was fine - no spectacular but not... More
