The food is a bit pricey but it is worth it. The place turns into a club at night and it has very good ambiance. I recommend to go if you are looking for good food, drinks and music.

I spend a visit to this place, only to find the menu okay but not very special and too much noise really. Not of music as expected, but all people producing so much noise that you may lose your voice quite easily. But if you like so much people around this is different of course

Jet lag had us seeking food at 10pm on a Sunday night. We should have stayed in our hotel at that hour. But we took an Uber to the restaurant and were dropped off across the street. Immediately after crossing the street to enter the restaurant the two of us were approached by a well dressed man offering us prostitutes... More

We had lunch there just after the Argus Cycle Tour on Sunday. This restaurant ignores South Africa's smoking regulations. There is no enclosed designated smoking area. The smoking and non-smoking area is one open space. When pointing this out to the hostess she just shrug her shoulders. By the way - the waiter did not know how to open a... More

Bar scene with good music,food and drinks. Lovely place: tasty food to share (e.g. mixed grill), cocktails and good wine. Nice place to "chill out" with friends.

Staying in nearby Hospital Street, we saw this place when we were going to the adjacent supermarket and thought it looked quite good. Having had a wonderful dinner at the Waterfront complex and a DISASTEROUS dinner at the Truffle Restaurant on another night, we decided to try out Cubana. There were 3 of us and it was a Saturday night... More

Did not feel safe while visiting this restaurant and it is in a dark place situated, so rather be safe and visit a different restaurant.

We visited this place around 9.30pm on Sunday. The place was around half full. Staff were friendly and helpful. This place has a good mix of people, with lively music, a good selection of drinks and snack type food. The food we ordered came out quickly. We really enjoyed the chicken wings and beef, the sauce on them was sweet... More
