Poco Havana Bar & Cantina Mexican Restaurant (Glasgow) : Review

48a West Regent Street

Tel : 0141 353 6098

Visit Date : 4th December 2016

This weekend I fancied having a Mexican for my style of food, and I opted to go back to Poco Havana.

My last visit to Poco Havana was 20th November 2016 and this was the review for then VIEW

Tonight I did try different dishes, as I am trying hard not to have the same thing every time. Again just like last time, we were welcomed and shown to a table. The staff have always been very pleasant and very helpful and it was the same tonight.

Starters :

“rolled in brown butter panko crumb, manchego and paprika”

The sweetcorn was very nice, biting in to it the cobs were coming off nice and easy. The flavour was good, and the crumb topping was very nice. It not a spicy topping, the paprika just adds a little flavour you taste more of the manchego than paprika.

Everything about this worked, and I would order this again.


“tortilla chips with melted mozzarella, salsa, sour cream and jalapenos
Add guacamole £1. Add almost death sauce £1″

Yes I know I got these the last time, but for me these have been the best nachos I have tasted in any Mexican restaurant so far in Glasgow.


Main :

“crispy open taco stuffed with chipotle pork, salsa fresca, cheese, crema and fresh coriander”

Yip so not really what you would call a burger visually, but this is loaded with great flavours and every mouthful did not get boring after a while. I would really recommend this if you try Poco Havana, and I would have this again!


Dessert :

Fried Jamaica cake £4.95
“chargrilled bananas, spiced rum toffee sauce and whipped demerara coffee cream with crushed Oreos”

When I saw the menu this was a must, as you know I have been attending monthly rum clubs so a Jamaican rum cake was the one to order.

This was so good, packed with flavour and every mouthful was so so good. If I wasn’t full after tonight’s meals and this cake, I would have ordered another one.

Finishing Cocktail :


Overall :

This visit for me was a lot better than my first, mostly due to I really enjoyed everything a lot from the food, dessert and the cocktail. Don’t get me wrong my first visit was good, but I enjoyed what I ordered more this time round.

The one thing I must point out, is once a dish is ready its just brought out. Tonight I had starters and my main sitting on the table, if this isn’t for you maybe ask them to hold the mains back till your ready.

The Rating for this visit (out of 5) :

  • Menu Choice : *****
