Unique mix of restaurants and shops cater to all tastes. Great if you've got a day to wander up and down to appreciate the art. A stop at Fidel's for coffee is a must!

Lots of eateries, food from all over the world. Shops to suit all, with lots of bargains, and side-streets to browse. People from all walks of life, and students make it even livelier!

It was a little hard to get there - I walked down from the Intercontinental Hotel, should have taken a taxi. The shops are varied and unique, great way to spend a few hours in the afternoon or have happy hour.

Cuba Street district is a fantastic choice if the only thing you are after is a good meal. There`s plenty of original restaurants and bars, in some of them you can even enjoy live music, but there`s nothing else to it. I would definitely recommend this area if you are after good casual dining food (Specially in between Vivian St... More

Cuba street has changed since I was there 10 years ago. It has lots of cafe's and good for just sitting down and watching people walk by. Buskers used to be prolific but on the day and night we went there were hardly any. It still is a student hangout and the pedestrian mall could do with some tender loving... More

On a Saturday night the whole area was heaving with noisy people, noisy bars and over filled cafes. We could not find a decent restaurant for a meal and had to go back out of the centre near to our hotel to eat.

There are lots of coffee shops and lots of bars. There are small shops along the way. It's primarily pedestrian. They tend to charge more for coffees since it is a real tourist destination. Look at it as a walk....

This is a pedestrian street just filled with souvenir shops and restaurants. Nothing special. It took us about 10 mins to walk down one side and back up the other side. Lots of cafes, so you can have a rest and get some coffee and snacks. The Bucket Fountain is a joke. It's just a child's water fountain where the... More
