The cocktail menu was amazing! So many choices. The place was really chilled out, loved the decor and the staff were incredibly friendly (even helping us with restaurant recommendations). Definitely go for a few delicious cocktails xx

Bar in the Nieuwmarkt area of Amsterdam. Rustic, quaint and has lots of character. Owners are not Cuban, but Spanish, but they are known for their mojitos, which are made in traditional way (no mixer, which many places use) and are priced ok for Amst. Friendly servers and bartender. Plenty of covered and heated outdoor seating that encourages passer-bys to... More

If you are going to Amsterdam you really ought to make a point of having an evening in Nieuwmarkt. Cafe Cuba is a really fantastic bar. Lovely beers in a great setting, this really is the way to drink in the city, none of the Irish bar nonsense that you get in the RLD. P.S. This review is basically a... More

Place is inviting and friendly, maybe this was because of the rain and wind outside! We still loved it though as was easy to relax and had good atmosphere. Sat at the bar with a good range of beers and nibbles. Good place to meet up with friends and have a beer.

Over the last 3 years, since I have known this bar, I have come to the conclusion that this is one of the far better Cuban bars in Europe (not forgetting Revolucion De Cuba in Manchester - which is part of a chain). I don't go to eat but to drink with friends and socialise with others and making new... More

2nd time I was here. 1st time (in 2007) I just wanted to have a nice cup of coffee for a fair price, and I got that and the reception was friendly. 2nd time I was there there was too loud music inside and I felt it was just one of those Amsterdam places not necessary to visit. In summer,... More

Located at Nieumarkt just to the east of the Red Light District. This cafe has a great terrace out the front. For a sunny day this is perfect for watching Amsterdam pass you by.
