We were stuck in the area without a car and came to Cubana on recommendation from the receptionist at our hotel. The drinks were good, but I was disappointed when we were told that the whole restaurant is smoking area. We sat as far outside as we could on a rainy night to avoid the smoke. The food was average,... More

The food is basic, texmex with few surprises. It seems a little seedy, but that probably only comes to the fore at night. There were vegetarian options too. No one complained and the baskets we ordered were polished off with gusto. The cocktail menu is a bout 5 times the length of the food menu so that should give you... More

This place has such a wide variety of everything. The food is to die for. I have been twice and all the meals were food for a queen! They have a huge cocktail menu as well with something different than the usual. The will definitely see me every time I visit cape town.

If you have been to Cubanah anywhere, it seems like you have been to all of them. However, this one still has the personal touch of the staff. They offer good friendly service.

The food was excellent. The service was shocking, management apathetic and the ambience left much to be desired. After booking in advance for 15, paying a stiff deposit well before and calling ahead to confirm, twice, one would think they would be geared to handle a large table. The evening started with only getting a table set for 12 and... More

I really wanted to like this place, I really did but I just couldn't.It didn't start out too badly.I was seated promptly but even though I was solo and the place was nearly empty at 7 p m they seated me at the smallest possible table in an awkward spot.I thought that was OK because perhaps they would become crowded...
