“Average food but great setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Cafe Cuba overlooks Spinola bay and if you get the right seat on a warm afternoon the setting is perfect. This is really a bar serving bar type food so dont expect anything special. Burgers and chips are the order of the day! I probably would not go back for a meal there but for an afternoon coffee or beer in a nice setting then certainly it is nice pitstop.

“Just OK”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Poor range of dishes. Quality of food although not poor was not on a par with similarly priced resturants in the area.

“short break”

Just back from Malta last night. Would advise anyone who goes there to try the Cuba restaurant in St Julians, the food was lovely and the service was very friendly. The setting was also lovely!

“Nice harbour view, slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

We stopped in the early afternoon for a snack. The café is overlooking the harbour and the view is great. There were only three occupied tables, but we had to ask for menus as we were ignored by the waitress. We ordered a pitta pocket and a "Mezze of dips" with 2 glasses of wine. Another long wait. The pitta was good, the dips were 3 bowls of different bruschetta toppings with two small pieces of toast and a pile of hard round biscuits. Total bill for two, 24 euros, although we had to go to the desk to get the bill and then waited to pay.........even though the place was empty ! Food - boring but OK, Service - useless !

Rude staff, service was incredibly slow, food inedible when it came, having got our order wrong twice. Will not return.
