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.

“Excellent all round”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

We ate at Cafe cuba a total of three times during our visit to Malta! We passed this place on the offchance when we first arrived and were not disappointed.

The pizzas are extremely fresh and delicious, made with one of the best tomato sauces I tasted in a long time. The burgers were homemade with steakmince served with skinny fries (my favourity) and were again delicious. On one occasion the service was a little slow, but I only think this is because the place is normally so busy!

“Very good. We will certainly come back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

After strolling around in Sliema we felt the need to grab a good bite. Well this time we visited Cafe Cuba and I must tell you it was well worth the visit! The portions are very good and the food was very tasty! We had two pizzas and I took a burger and we all got very satisfied. The restaurant was full but we still managed to get a table inside in no time . The prices are very reasonable and at part with the good quality of the food.
