Corn bread to start was great. Then on to the Seafood Cioppino, beautiful tomato based broth with huge shrimp and muscles cooked perfectly. Focaccia was a bit dry from sitting out but still fresh. With the soup to dip it in, it wasn’t an issue....More

if There’s one kind of restaurant that’s always been my favorite it’s the fancy/casual kind. Chef table quality food and drinks to die for but I don’t feel out of place if I come in a T-shirt and jeans instead of suiting up.

My fave place on the drive. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all amazing here. And their jugs of mojitos are to die for! The heated patio is massive and is great for a hot sunny day or a rainy evening

First time for our family of four and we all very much enjoyed the lunch fare. The food is inspired by Cuba, and there are many dishes to choose from. Great place to eat when enjoying Commercial Drive!

I've been going to Havana a couple of times a year since it opened. The room still has some charm, but that's the best I can say about it. The service was just okay. But the food. All three of us were bored with what...More

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat
counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which
well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit

They seem to but review the menu on their website and email them for confirmation as sometimes gluten can be hidden.
