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.

Seems to be a 'happening spot' - but didn't enjoy waiters bantering with one another on the pavement next to our table. Was ok for a drink, but wouldn't really go out of my way to visit.

Social butterflies hanging out in a open style suedo Cuban style cafe. Average food with above average prices. Dreary service and monotonous head banging music makes me want tone jump on the nearest raft to the real Cuba.

We enjoyed an evening in a surround that calls for relaxation and casual conversation. The food wasn't exceptionally outstanding but the service and very friendly waiter certainly made up for it

As the title says - why ruin tender end perfectly cooked steaks with a ton of salt ?! Course 101 Cooking says that it is up to the customer to decide the amount of salt & pepper by adding these ingredients. AND, why did we not hear a word from the chef when we loudly complained about the salt ?!... More
