Went there for dinner and drinks on a Friday after work. The food was very good and so was the music. When time to pay for drinks the card machine had stopped working despite us paying twice before for the meal. It was such a...More

By far the best Mexican (Cuban?) food in town! I highly recommend coming and getting a table in the back, past the bar. I ordered the fajitas and satisfied my craving for south of the boarder food for awhile. All of my friends raved about...More

Loved the food and the ambience. The artwork on the walls is weird and interesting. Always great first stop when having a night out. Worth doing regularly!!

This is a fun place...located on "Electric Avenue" where it gets so busy from Thurs-Sun that the crowd spills on to the road. Service is great, crowd is fun & interesting....locals and expats mix well here.

The food is great! The music is loud and thrilling. The mix of people is the best! Try the specialty drinks, they are sure to please.

Wasn't crazy about the social scene there but the food was solid. If I had more time in Nairobi, I would have turned to Havana for a dinner again.

Like most bars in Westlands, Nairobi, the place itself is sleazy and attracts similarly sleazy customers. The decor is actually quite pleasant and includes some amusing paintings by a local artist with a penchant for curvey women, but the atmosphere is somewhat spoilt be the...More
