For late night drinks and people watching it is great fun. Good for groups who want to socialise in a lively place. Often packed outside after 9pm. The Mrs and I love it. Amusing watching the tourists getting attention from fun pretty women and Ladyboys looking for ...to quote the late George Michael 'Faster Love'. After some great cocktails I... More

it has music, and everyone wears Cuban outfits, but it is a Mexican bar and hangout for foreign guys and their much younger, sometimes "professional" looking dates. Everyone behaves well but the silicone on show the night I went was comical. The food was pretty average. And I was hungry. Gambas (shrimps in garlic butter) were the tastiest thing I... More

But if it's good Cuban food, you won't find it here. The menu tends towards Mexican and the "Cuban" dishes indicate that the cook has never met the real thing. Service was slow and sometimes obnoxious. Prices tend towards expensive. However, if you don't mind expensive drinks and are seeking companionship, this would be a good stop. Pleasant outdoors, loud... More

The food is good. Service is good. Daytime dinning it's fine outside table suits. You can see families, group of friends dining. Different scenery in the evening. It becomes a pick up point and sadly it's tolerated.

This place is hoping at night time. I would rate the food as average, but I think most people are there for drinks and the scenery. Lots of beautiful people hang out here in the evening.
