“Amazing flavours at Cafe Cuba”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I visited Cafe Cuba on 2 consecutive Monday evenings as I am travelling with my job. The first night I ordered fresh pan fried fish with prawn risotto. It was delicious!! The depth of flavours were wonderful. On the second visit I was tempted to have it again...but decided to try something else. The pork dumplings as an entree were Devine...almost as good as Melbourne's Hutong dumpling house!
The cafe is full of energy and ambiance so even tho I was eating alone, I did not feel uncomfortable. To top it off you can throw a dice and if you throw a 3 you win your meal for free!
Great friendly service from this student city cafe.

The staff at Café Cuba were great - I wanted an omelette and although it was not on the standard menu they made one of the best omelettes I've had in years - yum

“Fabulous”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I have just had the most amazing banana smoothie - best I have ever tasted. My pasta from the specials board was very tasty as well. Meal arrive quickly and as I was dining alone this suited me perfectly. Dined here 5 years ago and it is just as good. Definitely recommend Cafe Cuba for casual evening dining.

Love this place, whether full meal, snack, or just cake and coffee.
Seating round back is more formal dining whislt out front is cafe snacks. Lots of locals always here so great atmosphere. Always had great meals.
