During our short trip to Pattaya, we had our dinner at Havana Bar & Restaurant, with a retro Cuban decor of classic furnishing & beautiful exposed brick complete with well-stocked liquor display enhancing its Caribbean feel.
Specializing in classical & fusion Italian cuisine, the restaurant is strategically located in front of Holiday Inn Pattaya along Pattaya Beach Road.
One of their signature pizza is definitely the Tom Yum Goong, a perfect fusion of Italian & Thai cuisine, the pizza is generously topped with succulent prawns, button mushroom, and mozzarella cheese with its tomato & tom yam goong based & garnished with coriander.
Every bite is full with tom yam flavour and juicy prawns, I could easily munch the whole pizza myself!
One of the classic, simple dish yet hard to be perfected the aglio olio is cooked with virgin olive oil, minced garlic & red chili. Every pasta is evenly coated with the olive oil infused garlic aroma & hint of spiciness from the chili.
Currently Havana Bar has an ongoing promotion for the Rib Eye steak which we were recommended. 1,390 THB nett gives you a tender & juicy rib eye that comes with fat fries & salad and also a complimentary wine.
For dessert we ordered their Tiramisu & Panna Cotta, both are delicious though for tiramisu we do hope it is more drenched with coffee & kahlua in its sponge.
We love the ambiance of the restaurant be it indoor Havana which is relaxing and retro feel while enjoying the lovely acoustic music or outdoor Terrazzo where diners gets to relax & enjoy the sea breeze while dining.
