Havana Café and Bar

We love heading out to new bars and clubs with friends over the weekend to live up and erase all the stress we’ve gone through over the week. The next time you are looking for a new place to hang out at over the week or weekend, Havana Café and Bar, should be your go to place!

Havana

 Overall:

Food: 3/5

Ambience: 4/5

Service: 3.5/5

Open in place of polyester club at The Gordon House Hotel, Havana Café is a Cuban themed bar. Their food, drinks and ambience reflects the same.

Mocktails: mock margarita: we tried the strawberry flavored mock margarita with a salted rim. If you are a tee to taller —- this drink if perfect for you. It’s pink, cute, not too sweet or sour. It’s nice. Can definitely try this one when here.

Cocktails: We tried several cocktails including their house special: Cuba libre. Strawberry Mojito, Sangrita among others. Their drinks are well priced and are well made, too. Do try out their zombie drink – supposed to be really good!

Food:

Paprika dusted potatoes: potato wedges with paprika was crispy but not enough salt. If you absolutely love potatoes then you should call for this dish here

Crisp fried nachos: the best dish here. Crispy nachos with salsa sauce and sour cream is the perfect starter for your evening and meal. The salsa tasted homemade, which is different and nice for a change, also their USP of this dish.

Vegetable empanadas: a little under cooked when we had them, but were mediocre in taste. worth a try at Havana.

Grilled paneer Cubano: thick layer of vegetables, paneer and bread! Was a delight to the taste buds and the best best best here!

Vegetable quesadillas: served with the Mohjo (tomato based) sauce and sour cream, the quesadilla didn’t live up to our expectations. Very little cheese and vegetables and a little under cooked as well. If you are running out of options to order, do try this one!

Paprika and olive oil paella: similar to the stuffing of the empanadas with aubergine and other vegetables, topped with sour cream. This was a disappointment and wouldn’t recommend ordering this dish here.

Desserts: no meal is complete without desserts, so here’s what we had:

Churros: the Churros were rather too soft and the chocolate sauce too diluted making it difficult to consume. Try staying away from this one unless you absolutely love Churros – however they might be.

Flambéed bananas: fancy! Bananas soaked in Rum and orange reduction and then lit up with wine. The taste was rather odd to us, but the process of preparing this dish upon our tables was rather fancy.

Tres leches: was one of the best desserts here. Soft and milky this is a must have at Havana!

Havana is a must visit place for the next time you are out with friends for a few drinks. The food options are limited here for both vegetarian and non vegetarian alike, but the ambience and staff makes up for it. The food is a mix of Mexican, Indian and Cuban. So go here with friends for drinks rather than dinner, and you will end up having a night you will remember forever!

At Havana, when you don’t find a party, you throw one! 😉
