All the food was spot on. Loved the different salsas and homemade corn chips. Wonderful service and gorgeous fresh food. Well knew Brussels sprouts could actually taste so good!!! This was our 4th dinner here. I've left reviews on the other review site. Authentic, lovely,...service and goodness.More

I’m an ex chef, and the quality of the food here was outstanding, the menu is inventive and caters for all. There’s a great vibe and the staff were all friendly. Affordable and great value for money. We’ll be back

We struggled to find somewhere that would suit our family of 9, little Havana was perfect! Great service and amazing food. All The kids had a great night. The Cuban cigar desert was a highlight for all. Thanks for a fun night.

A little disappointed. We received very good service until we finished our main meal. Then we sat and waited, no one stopped to ask if we wanted more to drink, to take away our plates or offer us dessert. Yet wait staff walked past us...at least 8 times in that 15 minutes and the manager was right beside us and spent all of this time with one table. In the end we left as it was obvious that service was a long time coming. The food itself was good and yes it would have been great to try the chocolate cigar dessert the manager was speaking about and promoting to the other table but unfortunately we didn't. We passed on our concerns to the young waiter who took our payment at the counter. He was very apologetic and polite and did offer us dessert but we declined as we had already left our table. I feel he handled our concerns very well and should be pleased with his customer service skills.More

The host is wonderful, the food is always delicious, and you can tell that the wine list has been well thought out to suit. I love coming here when I'm in town for work, can't wait to try the new menu next time I visit!

What an asset to our seaside town. We enjoyed delicious fresh meals, beaut cocktails, a tasty cigar for dessert (a must try!) and Peter even retrieved Beau’s flying toy off the roof 👀. Awesome night out. Top eats, top vibe, top staff.
