I've been coming here for years and I've never found a better alternative. It ticks so many boxes for me: I feel comfortable if I'm on my own for a coffee, it's ideal for lunch with a friend, I also like it at night for the drinks and the music. It's reasonably priced and feels authentic. If I'm the one... More

Excellent service and atmosphere, good selection of beers cocktails and wines, however the food was tasteless which was a huge disappointment. It was unfortunate that we were also asked for a tip of €60 upon leaving, this was not communicated when we arrived. I would go back again in a smaller group

A group of friends and I went here for our Christmas catch up and it was pretty good craic. The food was good - lots to choose from. We had a couple of platters, patas bravas and croquettes. All delish. The place was absolutely jammed though so not exactly a relaxing spot to chill out. We had a few cocktails... More

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.
