We took the sales team and office staff for lunch to celebrate the end of a successful year. The venue is great - one can either sit in the quiet, cool, intimate areas or in the bright, airy and open area overlooking the beachfront and sea. We chose the latter. The huge ceiling fans kept us cool, the white tablecloths... More

After a two day forum, i went there with my South African colleague and had the best rip eye I ve ever eaten. I wanted to settle for a fillet, but after showing us the choices on a big platter, we followed the chefs recommendation and did not regret it.

very diverse menu with plenty of choices but a bit upmarket prices. service was excellent as was the food and desserts but a little bit of a shock to the revenue department when bill was presented including drinks-- but what the heck one only lives once and all in all it was very enjoyable and worth the experience.

During our one-week trip to Durban we visited this place twice. Excellent steaks, tasty and well-prepered combined with carefully selected wines and good service. What else can you ask. Not cheap but worth every penny.

Visited the Havana Grill for the first time on the recommendation of some friends. I have to say that i was not disappointed . Had the aged Fillet steak which was served with creamed spinach and butternut , the veg was brilliant but the steak was out of this world. Hats off to the chef.

Two years ago we went to the Havana Grill for the first time and it was fantastic in all respects. Recently while visiting Durban our host gave us a choice between the Oyster Box in Umhlanga or the Havana Grill at the Sun Coast Casino in Durban. Based on our previous experience we chose the Havana Grill. We really shouldn't... More
