Jose is from Angola, his wife from Portugal, together they developed a special sauce for king prawns and ribs. You will be never desapoited, and never mind how long you wait. Just order ribs, prowns, chips and bread to eat with the prawns sauce... it is all supper fresh, super delicious. One person wrote in his review about the dodgie area, it really doesn't matter, it is always full, people with good energy. You can bring your own wine and just have a good time with your friends and family.

My absolute favourite restaurant in PE. When we want to spoil our friends or family, we take them to Cubata because we know the food is absolutely delicious every single time we've been - and we've been many many times.

The atmosphere is relaxed and festive, and of course, Jose & his family are such lovely, warm & friendly people, so they make everyone feel so welcome.

I just can't say enough good things about Cubata...

This used to be a gem of a restaurant until it became popular, prices gradually increased to the point where it's no longer good value for money. Food quality however is still excellent.

Dont go to Cubata if you dont like eating with your fingers. Better tibs and prawns you are yet to experience anywhere in the world!! It can be very busy and sometimes the wait is a bit annoying but we took colouring in books for the kids and the "take your own alcohol" policy makes the bill a little more affordable.

Go there at least every 2 weeks. No frills, only delicious food. Can take your own liquor. Jose and his wife is always so friendly.
