As I was staying at for a month in Cape Town at the Ritz hotel which is close by to this vibey lounge I decided to give it a try. As a transgender lady(male to female) I havent been denied entry to any venue regarding my sexuality but my fate came to an end at Cubana! I was denied entry... More

This is an ok place to eat, the fittings are a little tired and it is very noisy. People smoke in here, so of your not used to that it is off putting Quality of food is ok, liked the Nacho platter for two but would really only score this place 5 out of 10

As usual a visit to Cubana didn't disappoint. Great food, great vibe - even for a Sunday evening! Drinks were good as well and the bill was not excessive at all.

Food is fine, nothing special though. What it makes so special is the location and the decoration. You sit in and feel like in cuba. The outside balcony gives you a view on the ocean and in between. The trains passing through. It is the flair which makes it that authentic and enjoyable. Would definitely go back to spend some... More

I was blown away by the brilliant vibe. On a Friday night there must have been over a hundred customers all dancing and drinking - the cocktails I had were amazing and the food well recommended - well done

Had drinks and a meal here with friends. Loved the cocktails, the food was so so. However the vibe around the place was priceless. It became a sort of nightclub with music and dancing as the night wore one. Lovely evening out

This place was down the hill from our hotel and we only discovered on our last day in Capetown. The food is average and unimpressive, but then…then you open the drink menu. They have it to a science of what is 'hot', 'strong', 'contains dairy', 'sweet', etc. A drink menu that rivals the Cheesecake Factory's tablet. Impressive. So, of course... More
