We came here on a couple of occasions for breakfast and we were very impressed indeed. We went for the Dutch Eggs which basically is the equivalent of of Eggs Benedict, they just changed the name slightly which is cool. Simply delicious and washed down with a medium Cappuccino. Both service and food were excellent and a brilliant location if... More

We visited on holiday in Sliema and were hoping to try some authentic Cuban food. However Cafe Cuba, despite the ubiquitous pictures of Havana on the menu and in the restaurant, specialises in crepes, burgers and pizzas apparently. The food was average and the confused theme disappointing.

If you want to go where tourists end up and get below average food and service, go for it. Otherwise, numerous other places around.

I am quite particular when it comes to finding good coffee. Cuba meets my standards for great freshly roasted cappuccino. In addition the have superior crepes with a nice variety to select from. Service is quite good even in very busy days.

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.
