Nice and cozy place but some of the staff is very rude. If you close your eyes for several minutes. They can warn you by saying "Cuba cafe is a cafe, not hotel!!" It doesn't matter how offen you order. You can find much more beautiful places.

Great place to enjoy your cocktails or beers. Nice atmosphere along an elongated bar. We had Pornstarn Martini, Strawberry Collins and Moscow Mule and all of it was greatly prepared. Good prices (~7€ per cocktail).

Went for a drink and found it to be busy - a lot of people sat outside enjoying a drink. Inside it has a cool vibe, they've clearly thought about trying to give it a Cuban feel. Nice spot for a drink.

We thought this looked nice and sat down for a drink and a snack. The staff were unhelpful, the snack was awful, and the beer was overpriced

I enjoyed this place a lot, sitting outside having dinner and a glass of wine, while watching the locals riding their bikes and tourist gathering at the plaza across the street, it was charming and picturesque. It's a fun place to stop by and have a drink...or two and meet local people.

We'd walked around looking for somewhere on a busy Saturday night and this is the only place we could get a table. It was extremely busy and there was a short wait considering the amount of people sat inside and outside the cafe. The cocktails were a reasonable price and tasted great, they came with fresh fruit garnish.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
