Okay, let’s get this out of the way first. If you have never been to Cuba or eaten in a proper Cuban restaurant this may not be for you, but you can always chill out and have a few drinks instead.
The menu consists of flavoursome pulled pork beef or a chicken dish with accompanying rice, black beans and sweet potatoe crisps. It was all very tasty and we tried the lot. 7 euros for each dish. You can also order a prawn dish which sounds amazingly good but have to give at lease 24 hours notice.
The drinks menu in particular the cocktails was excellent. Most will set you back 4 euros and I had one of the best caipirinhas I have had anywhere (ok I know it’s a Brazilian standard, but I like them) as well as the usual caipirinha made with limes they also do one with passion fruit added which is also very very good and a bit sweeter than the standard one.
They also do a happy hour 2 for the price of one (incredible) or a litre jug of your choice for 14 euros. All of the spirits are quality branded products and we received a complimentary tot of 5 year Havana rum at the end of our meal.
A mention has to go to the wonderful and hard working staff who made our experience so much the better. Well done Annabelle and Tina (sorry if I spelt that wrong)
They couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly, and were very informative.
Just try it you won’t be disappointed if you heed the food choice and type.

OK so there is a very limited choice, but so what when it is good and overall with the service the drinks becomes on of the most memorable meals of your holiday. It may not be fine dinning but it is a more than a fine way to spend the evening. If going once in the square find the boards and walk through the arch

Thank you very much! We strive for simplicity, yet it is very important to us that our clients are satisfied with our dishes and the freshness of our food. We are glad that you found it "memorable", with that being said, next time you're in Madeira, please don't forget to pay us another visit! It was a pleasure having you in with us.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to write us such a kind review.

Sincerely,
MadCuba team

This little gem is hidden down a lane but we are glad we found it. We got there at 6.40 which meant we were just in time to benefit from happy hour which was two cocktails for the price of one. Given that this is not an expensive place to eat the added value was amazing.

The menus is limited only four dishes, but we had the beef and the chicken and both were very good. The Cuban dishes come with rice and beans as well as very tasty sweet potato crisps. The chilli mojito is brilliant with a real hit of chilli.

This is a great place to eat and is great value too. At €23 for two meals and four cocktails you can’t complain!

Excellent! Very unique experience. Only 3 dishes to chose from. We ate two and we would rate both the best pork/beef based food we ate on Madeira. The prices are very good too! Go there while you can!
