Great food! Pretty loud. Not conducive to conversations. Cool atmosphere. Good for relaxing, lots of comfy couches to lounge

No chairs at the bar. No tables unless you're buying up the bar. So in the end you have a bunch of people milling around the bar area, in quiet little battles for counter space listening to really quiet music. But hey, they made a nice gin and tonic... Then again, you'd really have to try to mess up gin... More

Went to this lounge after our visit to the African Art Gallery nearby. Comfortable and relaxing seating. Nice place, but as we have only two cappuccino's - which were good - it feels like our experience with the place is limited. However if you want a good cappuccino, we can certainly recommend it!

Had by far the best nachos. Only problem, order the small portion and they came me enough to feed an army.

The food fantastic and delighted our guests from abroad, the cocktails looked the part too.

We were looking for something different while touring Durban, so we thought we would try Cubana's because we had not had Cuban food in quite a while. We still have not had Cuban food. There was NOT a Cuban dish on the menu. The atmosphere is definitely aimed at the younger generation and the music and décor is good. Their... More

We only went for drinks and shisha but it was nice. The setting is well designed with a very cuban feel. The drinks were delicious, and very reasonably priced.
