This place was packed out on the Friday Evening that we visited. We got served quickly enough and this seems to be a very poular place to go.

I really liked the vibe here. Went on both a Saturday night and a Sunday night, and there was a live deejay. People were both eating at tables, drinking at the bar, and dancing. Good service. Decent menu and drinks. If you are looking for a lounge, party vibe with good music and reasonable prices, this is a good spot... More

1. Waiters take advantage of drunk patrons, when you pay cash they never return woth your change. They tip themselves before you do. 2. Bouncers call the shots. When it's busy weekends like the Durban July they tell you straight to your face they "don't need your money. Go elsewhere." 3. When you send a complaint to their head office... More

While there are many restaurants in Florida Road, Durban, my family treated my husband and I to the Rise & Shine breakfast at the Cubana Havana Lounge & Latino Caffe - not only did we thoroughly enjoy the meal, but were pleasantly surprised at how affordable it was. This place also has a very nice ambiance. This was our first... More

I have never experienced such rude service from any place. Staff were hovering around phones and chatting that they didn't even notice us having a seat. Eventually one came strolling down staring at us rudely. All she said was "u want a menu" at that point we walked out. Ended up having an amazing night at an excellent bar up... More

Visited this Havana Lounge for breakfast. I liked the furniture, decor, and music, but not much more. The waitress was unfriendly, food took long time to prepare and our breakfast was surprisingly bland and boring, eggs were not soft as ordered and small piece of steak over done..... No i wasnt impressed

We've now been twice in the month. The first visit was too have drinks and a hookah. It was then we saw the well priced menu. Our second visit last night was to test the menu. We both had the R50.00 chicken burgers. Tasty with a well sized fillet chips thrown in and a tasty free table chilli sauce thrown... More

I visited this establishment a couple of nights in a row since it seemed to be the most vibrant and happening of the options on Florida Road. They have well crafted cocktails and friendly staff.

We wanted to have drinks here, but we were told that they were full and that al the tables had been reserved. It's low season and at least half the place was empty. They directed us to the bar. There were no chairs and nobody was behind the bar. We left, without a drink. It was clear, when you're not... More

Went to Cubana after Comrades as the hotel we were staying at did not serve dinner. Staff are friendly but the music is a bit loud and inhibits people from being able to have conversations. The food was very nice - Ordered a basket as a starter and had their Health Chicken as a main meal. Very tasty!
