Cool redish colored, hot music and acceptable food. Limited number of seats ( on purpose). Meeting point for many people for unwinding.

The restaurant is located on busy Florida Road so close to some of the local hotels. We tried going on a Saturday night and the wait was well over one hour.

Great upmarket restaurant/lounge bar, with good food, and great DJ's spinning music on the decks. Fridays and Saturdays they are full to the brim, with a great vibe.

Wehad a seafood platter. That might have been a silly choice, but restaurants should not offer something they cannot cook. The prawns seemd to sundried, not fried, the calamri and the mussels were also rather bad,only the kingklip was all right. The potato chips seemed to have spent some time in a humid place and were rancid, so not only... More

I unfortunately wasn't having a sit down meal as i wanted a take away( had been working long hours ) but was not even offered a seat while i waited. the waiters were more interested in just looking at the guests. Service is very different form my favorite Cubana in GreenPoint, CPT

Went to this restaurant with 5 others and had a great night. It seemed no trouble getting a table to accommodate us when we turned up without a reservation. The food was fantastic, cooked to perfection. Again another great value Durban restaurant which offers great food and wonderful service.

We had dinner in Cubana, and we didn't had a reservation. We got a table immediately, and the food was on our table real soon. The atmosphere is great, good music, nice people. The food was good, adequate servings, tasty, innovative. At the end, we had a sheesha, and some shots. To european standards, the price is really cheap -... More
