Last time I visited this place was in March when some friends and I decided to chill. I want this review to be fair so here it goes... Food - food is tasty, not as Cuban as we would like to have it but definitely there are items on the menu which are quite good. I don't drink alcohol so... More

Good location. Center of the Greenbelt Park. Meeting point of foreigners. I thought if I'm going to the Cafe Havanna Bar, I have to order the Cuban National drink a MOJITO. But unfortunately I was deeply disappointed. It was far away from the original and quite pricey.

Nice place for a drink... been going there for years, but it has changed in time. There is still good waitstaff and live salsa music playing inside, but the crowd has aged. This place is famous for 'freelance' girls and ladyboys. Although, most ladyboys stay in the fenced area of the outside seating at Starbucks next door. It is very... More

A well known spot (located beside a Starbucks) where male tourists flock to pick up local call girls. I haven't even tried the food in this place. Get a drink or coffee and observe the many beautiful girls this place has to offer. Watch out for transexuals though (if that's not your thing). If you're a local, you can probably... More

I had a sudden feeling I had morphed into George Clooney before I finally realised all the ladies were smiling at me not for my looks but for my wallet, hooker central ! But the food and drinks are great as is the atmosphere and the girls don't bother you unless invited, sit outside on a warm evening with a... More

The place tries hard to project a Cuban atmosphere but falls short. Waitresses wear red berets but don't really represent anything Cuban. Likewise, the menu is more international and FIlipino than authentic Cuban. It was strange drinking Chinese Tsingtao beer while feasting on Filipino sisig while listening to a faux-Cuban band tuning up for an hour. Interesting enough and good... More

The cafe is situated in an arc inside Greenbelt 3 and it provides a decent selection of food and drinks. More often than not the cafe is relatively quiet during the day but at night time it is transformed with a completely different crowd. The waiters keep busy shuffling chairs around to accommodate groups of drinkers and the many single... More

This is an overrated place to hangout and to listen to music. The band is noisy, lots of cheap girls sit and hang around as customers. Waiting staff are sometimes rude, especially when they notice a local / Filipina sitting with a foreigner / tourist.
