“Bill-AH! Cuba”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I went to Bella Cuba with my girlfriend at the weekend. The place looked nice and had a good Cuban 'feel' without being pretensious. We had a decent starter platter, albeit a bit pricey for the few titbits we got. The missus had a lamb casserole which put a smile on her face. I had a steak that was a bit dry with mash that was alright. The staff were friendly enough. We left with a bit of a sour taste in our mouths however when we got the bill. We had previously checked to see if there was a service charge as we were tight on cash and we always tip on merit. They had included it in the bill despite the fact there was no mention of it on the menu outside or the menus we were given. We liked the place in general but with a bottle of red wine in us we left a bit miffed with the whole experience cos of the bill.
