De'Havana's is one of the most fashionable meeting place in town. The joint is immediately next to Logali. There are five distinct areas in the restaurant. At the entrance is an open area with a counter and bar stools where people sit while waiting for others to arrive. To the left is an open but covered TV area where football fans can watch English or European foot ball on a huge screen while longing on low sofas with huge poof pillows and coffee tables. At the center is a small and cozy open sided bar where around five patrons can sit at the counter and chat with the lively barman. Then to the right is the restaurant with wooden dining tables and chairs, covered with colorful table cloths. The building is constructed with very unique materials, rough stone, polished wood poles, large marble tiles, making a pleasurable place to relax. There are three menus, the Pizza menu at around 30 pounds per plate, American with fried fish and chips, chicken wings, steaks, salads, etc at around 40 pounds for a meal, and a well liked 'Nyama Choma' roast goat meat and fries that you can not finish for only 25 pounds. Food is prepared on order, making the fare fresh and interesting.
Believe it or not, Salsa is gaining ground here! There is a very popular class every Thursday at De Havana’s restaurant. Even if you can’t dance, come and meet a group of fun loving ladies and gents, and as long as you do not step on your lady partner’s foot too many times, you will have a lot of fun! They have now introduced a barbeque with pork, chicken and beef cuts served till 3 am. Call them on Vivacell 0957 321218 and Gemtel 0477 321218.
De Havana's now host 1 NAMBA LOTTO, a fun gambling game like Bingo. As you sip your drinks you can chose a lottery number. If you win you get 20 times your bet. The bets are done on computer and the results are projected on the big screen. Lots of shouting when someone hits the Jackpot.
