After frequenting Cafe Cuba St Julian's on many occasions for both lunch and dinner, it has become a regular weekly favourite. Whether you want a simple coffee, or generous glass of wine, or a delicious salad to a sumptuous pizza, Cafe Cuba St Julian's has everything you want for casual and fun dining. The staff are very attentive and are always smiling and the food doesn't take long to arrive to your table. On week nights there is even live entertainment such as live jazz to brighten up a mid week dinner. I recommend this eatery for something cosy, stylish and yum.

We visited Cafe Cuba 4 times last month and enjoyed each visit. A young waiter in particular named Isaac is always attentive, friendly and energetic although all the staff are a good bunch and seem to carry some great energy. There are only a few places in malta who serve a different type of salad to the standard Ceasar, their Levantine and some other salad (forgot the name) are always tasty and great for lunch while their pizzas have a freshness to them, i think it's down to the delicious tomato sauce though could be anything else......we are now there once a week :) cant beat the view either!

We visited cafe Cuba on the first night of our holiday because the setting was in a great position overlooking the beautiful bay. However, having been seated and waiting over 15 minutes, nobody was interested in even giving us a menu. When we tried to politely get the attention of a waitress they were totally uninterested and seemed to be so pre-occupied that they had little to no idea what was going on on and didn't really care. As other reviews pointed out, it was if we were a hassle to them simply for being there despite not even being given a menu to order from. We left after 15 minutes of sitting like idiots waiting and as we left I could see the waitress who seated us smirking. We've had so many amazing experiences in Malta. This was the only poor one, and it wasn't just poor, it was disgraceful. Avoid

We've been to Cuba's on Spinola Bay many times in the last ten days. They have the BEST cappuccinos on the island. The service is great. The waiters are friendly and funny - especially Isack. Tonight we had pizzas from the wood burning oven. They were very good! We love visiting Cuba's!

It's hard to imagine that the negative reviews about Cafe Cuba on Spinola Bay in St Julians could be the same restaurant that my friends and I have visited almost daily in the past 10 days. Their bay front location is wonderful and we find their servers to be friendly, funny and helpful. The large cappuccinos are the most generous around. Tonight's pizzas were very good. They are very busy at most hours, so we don't expect quick service. It's great to just sit in the sun and enjoy the fact that we are vacationing in Malta.
