“Never try Mojito there!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

The good thing about Cuba cafe is, of course, its location - in the heart of the Old City. Probably this is a good place for partying as well. Most of the people passing by this place will see a hand-written sign there saying that Mojito served there is unique and simply the best. So did we! Having tried what they call Mojito at Cuba Cafe we should say that this has been the worst Mojito we ever tried! No lime, just lemon juice from Tetrapak, limited amount of brown sugar, risiduals of mint leaves etc. but a lot of ice to compensate the essential ingredients and justify the price! Totally disappointed!!!

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Cuba Cafe is a great theme bar. Cuba’s spirit is everywhere – interior, music, drinks, etc. It’s a spot for those who love crowded places.
Especially recommend you to try Cuba Libre cocktail (based on dark Havanna Club)

“Go party here, but mind your money”
Reviewed July 24, 2012 via mobile

A very good party place, also ok for a drink, but If you're here late and the place gets crowded, mind the bartenders, as they try to give you things you haven't ordered. However, good music and drinks all night long. My choice for a night out.
