I used to like burgers until I ate one at Cafe Cuba. The pulled pork seemed like it was left out to dry on the balcony for a couple days, while the beef burger patty itself reminded me of leftover chili con carne. Terrible service,...More

We spent a lovely day in Sliema and found this restaurant for dinner. It was great to find a restaurant in Malta that wasn't Italian food. The food was excellent, well cooked and hot. Portion size is large so the main course may be enough....More

Great atmosphere and easy sitting. Suggest any of the hamburgers but the El Generalissimo is best. The kids meals were good and service very friendly.

Description
Along Sliema's fashionable Strand, in the heart of Malta's top shopping area, Cuba is where to stop and chill. With a spacious seating inside or out, Cuba serves light snacks from 9:00am with a bistro menu - tasty salads, pasta and grills - kicking in from noon. Our wood burning Neapolitan oven bakes delicious Pizza in the evenings. Apart from brewing excellent coffee, Cuba offers a great selection of wines, beers and cocktails. A second Cuba is also open in Spinola Bay, St. Julian's, Malta's top location. Our new Cuba offers all of the above plus a great selection of fresh fish daily. Late evening drinks are served on the terrace overlooking magical Spinola bay. Can't think of a better place to chill out. Not only because we aim to brew the best coffee in Malta and brew only the finest roasted 100% Arabica coffee beans,but also because hard working people just need to chill out and have fun. Cuba means magical music and dance, cigar smoking, women and Che Guevara, rum and revolution. The very mention of this Caribbean island conjures up images of 1950s Cadillacs, colonial architecture, Ernest Hemingway sipping his daiquiri in a quiet corner of La Floridita and beautiful bodies swaying sensually to the sound of mambo and salsa. Cuba means easy living. Life moves slow there and people still have time to sing and play and dance in the streets. In our world where time waits for no one, service must be fast and efficient for an ever more demanding customer who expects a wide range of tasty food and drink as norm. But we all still need to have fun, to let go and feel good. At Cuba we seek to combine the physical and practical needs of our customers with their even greater need to relax and enjoy life to the full. We also cook great food and bake exquisite pizza using only the finest ingredients. Join our revolution and help us make life great again. We all just want to have fun.
