the Cubaña experience!

Nice & cheerfull place, with a good ambience. Our first attempt was on a sunday. Fully booked! On monday we tried again at this well illuminated restaurant. We had better luck. The nachos-dish with cheese and guacemole was very tasteful, although you can order this as a side dish and as a main... read more

The food is really good, and they give you a lot for the price. Drinks are mixed well (though they can up the liquor) and the ambiance overall is very pleasant. Located right on Florida road. Staff is friendly, but can be hard to understand at times. Overall, I definitely recommend!

A group of friends visited for lunch today. I had their chicken breast with mushroom sauce with salad and so did others at the table.. The food was generally agreed to be very good. Service was a big problem in that although there were many waiters sitting and standing around, only one was trying to serve many tables at once.... More

Had an excellent time. Platters are excellent. Hookahs are very well priced. R80 comes with 6 shooters. Very wide choice of shooters and cocktails. Ideal venue for a night out with friends.

I used to go there quite often when it first opened. Now it’s frequented by yuppies, who obviously love it. But for the rest of us … It didn’t help that we were the for a year-end office lunch. Drinks are overpriced, and the food is barely adequate for what you pay. Our starters (lots of it) comprised whole baskets... More

A few years ago, I came to this place and the bouncers made us feel so unworthy, I didn't know you had to look like you selling your thighs to go in, with expensive hair and heels that you can't afford. I hated the place since then. Until the 2 last times, which 1 was yesterday forced by a friend... More
