Description: Havana Grill offers an unforgettable dining experience with the combination of great food, an extensive wine selection, humidor for cigars and an environment that is relaxing, yet remains up-market. With views overlooking the ocean, excellent meals and attentive staff Havana Grill is a must when visiting Durban, Suncoast Casino. The restaurant specialises in steaks where they proudly offer grain and grass-fed cuts of meat; as well as seafood, lamb, poultry and game dishes. The wine list and cellar provide a variety of South African wines. Havana Grill is a popular choice for functions and events as the restaurant can be divided into distinct areas; as well as offers two private dining rooms. The restaurant is an ideal meeting place for corporates in the private dining room; or friends enjoying time together over a delicious meal. Havana Grill is open Monday to Saturday from 12:00-17:00(lunch) & 17:00-22:00(dinner) and Sunday 12:00-17:00(lunch) & 17:00-20:00(dinner)

Situated in the massive Casino complex we actually ate twice at Havana Grill.

There are no frills or airs and graces and the food leans heavily towards steaks but there is a really good choice of other dishes if that is not your choice.

Good raw materials simply cooked seems to be the mantra here and with wholesome portions ice cream desserts were perfect. Everything was tasty there is a good priced wine list and the staff were especially friendly particularly as we went back.

Certainly well worth a visit.

Had one of the best meals ever at this little hidden restaurant in Durban.
The menu has great variety and the steaks are amazing highly recommended.

After dinner if you enjoy arcades you can spend a bit of time burning up some calories playing some games downstairs near the casino.

To get there will be best to use a Uber since its the safest way.

I always make sure I visit Little Havana when I’m in Durban. This trip I have been twice and historically I have had the most amazing steaks here. I have recommended it to so many friends!! However I am concerned Little Havana are letting their high standards slip! Tonight the table to my left complained, twice, about the standard of their food which meant the staff forgot a loyal long-standing customer to ensure they kept the table to my left happy. 3 staff were looking on cleaning glasses for tomorrow but ignored a happy long standing customer. Little Havana it’s not only about the people who complain but it’s about the people who support you. I am so amazed you have completely forgotten a long standing customer tonight. Not sure I will be back in February unfortunately! Keep cleaning those glasses if it’s easier than talking to loyal customers!

Dark and heavy wood decor, typical of a good steakhouse. Steak selections all good, lamb shank also well presented and tasty. Mushroom an gnocchi with smoked bacon was sensational. Only starch included with mains, vegetables and salad extra side orders. No bread offered for pre meal, always disappointing. Overall good service and great food.
