A decent night out

The venue can get very busy so it is best to book in advance. The food is decent though the service can be somewhat slow. The music is loud so you will need to speak loudly but this only happens later in the evening. The menu is diverse and the ribs are a firm favourite. The cocktail menu is... read more

Still the best night out in Cape Town. Infectious. Great accommodating atmosphere to set the tone for a night of drunken debauchery. Non racial Non semis And if you manage to stay around for the late night entertainment, you would not be disappointed. Great music Beautiful people What else can you ask for?

Went there with friends, but met a lot of other people, partied up a storm. Also, fresh music! The pricing of the drinks is quite decent, cheaper than some on long street.

Being outdoorsy people we chose to sit under the awning outside on the pavement despite the rain. Service was efficient, wine was reasonably priced and the food tasty & value for money. I had the nachos which were fresh and the ratio of nacho / cheese / guacamole / sour cream was exactly right - my partner had the seafood... More

Had dinner there with a few colleagues. Was really suprised at how good the prices were and my meal (and cocktail) was delish! Was super impressed, loved the vibe... only suggestion would be to play Cuban music instead of R&B just to contribute to the theme and ambience. Thumbs up tho!

I chose this place because it was close to my Hotel..the Protea Waterfront...and also I had been to Cuba and love the food! It did not disappoint! The mojito was better than in Cuba! I had the Cubano sandwich which was very large and served with fries... very good..the atmosphere was bustling but very comfortable..

Cubana was everything I was looking for in a bar in Cape Town!! A good size, really open, fun-filled and full of people enjoying themselves! The drinks were good value (isn't everything in Cape Town?!) and the service was excellent - the server did not seem to realise we were giving him a tip! We stood at the bar and... More

Really, the food is quite average and nothing to write home about. Nice enough for a night out drinking. My friend ordered a dish that was meant to be cubes of meat. She ordered the same dish at another Cubana many times before and the picture certainly looked like cubes of meat on a stick. What showed up were kebabs... More
