Fast service!

Came here for drinks on a Thursday with my friends from college, it was PACKED. Considering there weren't many people working behind the bar I think they were serving very quickly!

The Cuban is an ideal social hub in the heart of Canterbury. I usually attend student nights which are brilliant in terms of prices, entry and the atmosphere. The bouncers are very vigilant. However, they seem to fit in too many people. There is only a small amount of space so this could be better. Overall a great place for... More

Myself and a group of friends visited the cuban on a Saturday night after having dinner else where. We bought a couple of pitchers and a few other drinks and settled down in an area towards the door so we could talk but still hear the music & dance. We were minding our own business just dancing & chatting when... More

Firstly, the table that was removed from your area is required for another area after 11pm, it is stored where you were situation until later. Secondly, the area were you were seated and dancing,...

I went there with some friends last Saturday night and the food was quite nice, with lovely flavours and enough quantity. I thought the pork belly was quite fatty but I guess it's the type of meat which is like that. A bit expensive but it's Canterbury after all!

Half-price food and cocktails on Wednesdays! A very good, large hamburger and generous portion of chips for less than a fiver! Charming waitresses but they do not sell ales to accompany the meal, only lagers. I have now eaten there four times and will continue as long as there offer lasts.
