I visited with four friends and we had a great experience. The food was fantastic; a fusion of Cuban and Asian inspired food. The atmosphere was lovely and our waitress was friendly and attentive. She was keen to give us advice on her favourite dishes (Tunapica Tartare for starters and Rocoto Glazed Blackened Cod for main course). For sides: Plantain... More

Quirky Cuban style (very Florida influenced) restaurant in the St Martin's Hotel with its uniquely minimalistic lobby - part of the Morgan's group. Had previously eaten here for a late lunch with the restaurant largely empty and found and service was adequate if not memorable. This occasion, however, left much to be desired. Saturday night and a packed house -... More

A group of 8 of us went for a bottomless brunch which included 3 courses and an unlimited selection of cocktails. The food was delicious and the portions generous - I'd highly recommend the duck main. Our waitress Vicky was fantastic - very attentive and friendly and never left a glass empty!

Went for our Anniversary dinner the other night and enjoyed it a lot. The service was a bit slow but we weren't in a hurry and the food was amazing. We shared a ceviche, sesame prawn and beef rib spring rolls to start and then devoured the incredible lamb chops and 7-spice chicken. Yum yum yum. Will definitely be back

We booked the 3 courses & mojito £30 MENU on Saturday evening. I can't say absolutely one bad word about this place. The food was fresh and delicious, our waiter very helpful and extremely friendly.

Description
For global travellers with a cultured palate and a love of variety, Asia de Cuba is a destination restaurant with a must-taste fusion philosophy. The iconic St Martins Lane eatery has been newly renovated and now offers an updated menu and whimsical, enchanting interior design. Cuban-born executive concept chef Luis Pous enhances Jeffrey Chodorow's original culinary vision with experimental combinations and a new twist on old favourites. Inspired by the cultural synthesis of old Havana's Chinatown, Pous interprets Asian-influenced Cuban fare for a modern crowd and a discerning palate. The new Asia de Cuba retains the same authentic preparations, tropical accents, and sharing-style presentation loved by guests and food critics alike, now enhanced with a creative new menu and a chic new dining sanctuary. Fresh ingredients, handcrafted dishes, and eye-catching interiors make for an unforgettable dining experience with surprising cultural flavours. Bottomless Brunch runs from Friday to Sunday, with live music on a Saturday.
