Located at Nieumarkt just to the east of the Red Light District. This cafe has a great terrace out the front. For a sunny day this is perfect for watching Amsterdam pass you by.

We came cross this Cuban café whilst orientating ourselves around the market areas of Amsterdam and needed a break for a few minutes.

The barman was very informative about the area and very chatty to the point we stayed for nearly 2 hours and bought several KRISTELS each of Amstel beer at what has to be one of the most reasonable price in Amsterdam itself .

If you get a chance to visit this café the Cuban music is not so loud to be too loud and the decoration/atmosphere in keeping with the Cuban feel making this a most relaxing atmosphere despite a very steep wooden staircase that I would be wary of if I wasn't totally sober.

If you are not particularly tall chap, you might want to avoid what has to be the highest positioned urinal in the Country, so unless you’re around 6 foot tall, you might want to use the cubicle instead.

I absolutely loved this place! Nice and relaxing athmosphere, awesome nachos and the best cocktails in Amsterdam, made with fresh berries! :D We also got good service and the staff was nice. I would reccomend everyone to try out this place :)

Good cocktails at a reasonable price with friendly staff thrown in for good measure. If you get a chance - go.

After a long day of teambuilding we went here with a group of students. Had a fun time, the drinks are fairly priced (€2,30 for a beer), the staff is friendly. But apart from the mojito's and occasional cuban songs I don't know what is Cuban about this place.

But its a good place to go for a drink when you're at the Nieuwmarkt.
