Nice casual dining place. Nice mix of interior fixtures. Friendly staff. Nice tapas. Some really good, some okay. Would try again.

Don't know why I haven't reviewed Havana before. We've been lots of times and it never disappoints. The platters of meat and cheese are totally fresh and delicious. Patatas Bravas are excellent. Wine is reasonably priced (for Dublin!) There is always a great lively atmosphere and the staff are friendly. An authentic Latino experience and definitely not overpriced compared with... More

As part of a Tapas tour we stopped in Havana for what might be described as our main course of the evening. The food was gorgeous! We had Paella De Pollo Y Chorzo, Paella De Marisco, Havana Chicken Wings and I think Patatas bravas. Everyone enjoyed the food and no one went hungry! Also if you enjoy Sangria Havana makes... More

I visited this bar on a sunny day, attracted by the affordable price of the "student brunch": it was a surprise! it's a cosy, colourful bar that takes you right to Cuba in the middle of Dublin. Food was some of the tastiest I've tried so far, portions were huge and the staff was the friendliest: I just regret not... More

Cost place with friendly staff. The food was excellent we had two assorted plates. Everything was fresh and tasteful. It was like being back in Andalusia.

I really enjoyed our meal at Havana. The calamari was beautiful, lovely ambience and décor. The place gives you a lovely warm holiday feeling. Our waitress Silda was charming and very attentive. Thank you Havana.

I really liked the look of this restaurant, it has a nice atmosphere and the waitresses were friendly. I was unfortunately disappointed with my dinner. I ordered the Seafood Paella and was very underwhelmed with its taste and texture. It was overcooked and the seafood looked of a poor quality. It wasn't horrible, it just wasn't that nice. My friend... More

Very bad service, I had to approach the server to be served. Do not order a Cosmo- they had put it in a big glass with a slice of lime... And caught the server googling how to make it. Also, I've ordered a soda, they opened a 500ml bottle and they poured some on my glass. They kept the half... More
