Are you hungry?

I was not particularly hungry / we were not particularly hungry. I ordered tomato soup with thyme, while my lady ordered lemon grass soup. Tomato soup is a "creme-style soup" -- which is "usual" -- I would add a bit of sour cream in the middle to make the soup a bit more radiant in colors and a bit... read more

As you step into this restaurant you are no longer in Germany. It looks like you stepped back in time. The decor is amazing! Service was excellent. The food delicious. It's a very good place for lunch or dinner.

We visit this restaurant during a business trip to Gottingen Germany. We went here for dinner. The food was very good to excellent, the service was very good and the price for the food was great. The drinks and the atmosphere of the place are great too. We strongly recommend this rest. if you visit the town.

I have been there with a group of friends to have a brunch on Sunday morning. We did not booked a table but at 10 am the place was quite empty so we did not have problems. Anyway if you plan to go there later, you´d better do because at 12 the place was quite crowded. The service is good,... More

I went here for dinner with colleagues. The food was very well cooked, accompanied with a choice of sides (I recommend the Cuban rice & beans) and salad. Lots of fresh ingredients and well prepared. The breakfast menu looked extremely tempting

We had lunch here on Sunday. The restaurant name intrigued us first, then the atmosphere, then the fact that they served breakfast until 4pm, then the menu - full of wonderful sounding food. The really good news is that after being impressed by all this, we weren't disappointed with the food. My husband loved his Chef's Salad and I had... More

Villa Cuba does a really good breakfast till at least 4pm. It is one of my favourite breakfast places in Göttingen and has a great atmosphere.

The Villa Cuba might seem rather shabby at first sight, but the decor is (I think) deliberate - meant to give the impression of downtown Havana under Castro (with pictures to match). Good solid German-style food in large portions. Beer and wine very reasonable and service excellent. Popular with students and academics (but alos others). Large, so there always seems... More

The ambient is great, Fidel Castro speech on repeat as a background music on the bathroom is amazingly ironic, but what stands out the most is the salad dressing - and it comes with virtually any plate. Worth the visit just because of the salad.

We had a lunch there - the salads are huge and have lots of ingredients, all is fresh and the service is fast. And the restaurant itself has a cosy terrase. The interior is nice, I would recommend this restaurant for sure
