Fodor's Expert Review Havana Grill

$$$ Beachfront South African Fodor's Choice

Attention to detail and freshly prepared, quality food combine to make this one of Durban's finest restaurants. It offers spectacular sea vistas (ask for a table with a view when making your reservation) and a contemporary interior, with white leather-upholstered chairs, wall-length couches, and antelope horns on the walls. Steak—prepared and aged in the in-house butchery—and seafood are specialties. Try the tasting platter for starters (minimum of two people sharing): a mix of nachos; jalapeños stuffed with cheese; grilled calamari; bruschetta; lamb and spring rolls. For mains, consider the grain-fed rib-eyesteak with a duo of peppercorn and red wine sauce; seasonal varieties of venison; or line fish (likely swordfish, dorado, or Cape salmon). There's a good basic domestic wine list, but take the opportunity to make a selection from a walk-in cellar lined with lesser-known wines.
