We really enjoyed Cubana in Greenpoint. It was busy and seemed fun from the outset. The cocktails were great and the service was very good. Even though it was busy we did not want too long for our drinks.

Stopped into Cubana on a Saturday evening without a reservation and they were nice enough to accommodate us with a table. Servers were friendly and the menu ha a lot of choices. Settled on the Nachos for 2 (could easily have fed more) with the shredded pork. They were very tasty and loaded with toppings.

Cubana in Greenpoint is really good. I waited at the bar for the others to arrive and I must say that the bar is very pleasant. I'm not a "sit at the bar" type person but this bar was cool - a great selection of whiskies, rum and cocktails. The place is very vibey and fun - with lots of... More

This is where I go when I want Nachos. It is heaven on a plate. I usually have the pineapple juice although the cocktails are not bad. We go frequently and have never been disappointed up to now. The managers are very switched on even though some if the waiting staff are a tad suspect.

The open setting is very inviting. We stopped in for a drink after visiting the Harley store next door. We sat at the bar and ordered our usually. The bartender was very generous with his free pour. Captain and diet double was right on the money as was everyone else's choices. We sat for a few and moved along to... More

Great place to hang out with friends even though South African hospitality is completely different from Ghanaian hospitality. Great concept. Too crowded after 11pm. Great music. Great Service.

We were 2 couples travelling in SA and when we asked the people at water front for a nice place to sit down chill and relax at night, we were suggested Cubana. It was really a great place to hang out at night, so far the best for us as we had tried couple of more joints in Cape Town.... More

This is a big restaurant with seating outside and lounge area in back. The food I can only comment on is the basket choices. The ribs are very flavorful and fall off the bone yumminess. The beef cubes are good and polls masa which are chicken tenders are crispy. The only thing is the fries could benefit if they were... More
