The food was just ok, our lamb shanks were tough and no-one bothered to check up on our meals. Although the restaurant was full I think there are better places to eat at.

Managed to reserve a table but this place is very popular so essential to book in advance. The service from all members of staff was very good and the quality of food, especially the steaks was outstanding. This is probably the best in town. Good choice of wines and food on the menus.

Very nice resto with a great staff that is very attentive. The nachos are quite nice with a dollop of sour cream on the side. The meat varieties are welcome.

Firstly, their lunch menu with a glass of wine is just excellent for the price, so we find ourselves here often for a lunch meal. The staff being very professional and knowledgeable add to the sumptuous food - well done.

We had a lovely evening meal in Little Havana, one of the best steaks we've ever had. It was reasonably priced, the staff were friendly and attentive and the restaurant was very comfortable whether you wished to eat inside or out.
