Tried out the place once, but was not too impressed with the selection in the menu, or the ambiance.

“Good food, Bad Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is the first time I have been to this place after the change of management. Nice environment with less parking facility. The menu is a mixed one. I expected only for a set of items from Cuba or South American countries. But it has fried rise and Biriyani too. I was there with 8 or 9 people and they missed the order I have put for a Hot Chocolate.

Food is very tasty but service need to be upgraded. Those house boys do not know how to serve a customer. Water does not come to the table. Spoons are missing for some people. I will think again before going to this place, specially if I going to give a treat for some other people.

“Calm & Quite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

First impression- very nice place. of cause it is a calm place. there were very less guests seated. food is good but not what i expected it didnt contain the wow factor. my perseption came down from greate to ok.
hospitality is ok but i was confused weather the little fellows there are really capable of handeling that?????
overall its a nice place to hang out with few of your friends ( limited space) & chat for long hours, even though its not a general guy thing. no Liqure !!!! so eat, stay for some time & come back. oh! before i forget, its a good place for a romantic dinner :)

“Good food and very good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

The food is always fresh very friendly staff... If something is not up to your expectation please inform them that is what my mother did about her Mango juice and they got her one exactly like a FABULOUS mango juice should be
The seafood ravioli is one of my fav dishes you can tell that even the sauces are made from scratch

“International food with Local touch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

I have visited to Café che several times, but last visit was after new management change. Compare to old management and staff now it is quite proactive!
As a Christ mas dinner outing I went with my wife to have dinner.
Security and staff are very pleasant and helpful, importantly steward saved us is quite knowledgeable person about the food that they have!
This time I tried Havana BBQ Chicken and Nasi Goreng, it was really tasty and recommend for whom really love grilled chicken foods.
Seat arrangement and lighting setup are bit Okay type!
Recommend visiting time is during the dinner time!
