Everything was going fine until I swallowed a fly and found other 2 at the bottom of the glass. We had to deal with a few "duty managers" until we got to speak to a manager...he said he would take the drink off of the bill. When the bill came they got it wrong and instead of apologizing the gave... More

Cubana in Fourways is not a nice place. The story goes like this. Me and my cousin went to Cubana, the bouncer refused to allow us in because we were wearing shorts, but all of sudden he allowed 3 guys with shorts in, after confronting the bouncer, he apologised and said he is new and does not know the rules...

While visiting Cubana recently I was so appalled by the service and attitude of waiters ... We were there on a Friday night and maybe it wasn't the best day to go as it was really full and had a really clubby vibe I noted that waiters at this establishment pay close and attentiveness to clients who purchase expensive alcohol...

Food: worst nachos I have EVER had - made even worse by their condiments (salsa? guacamole?? sour cream???). Service: the only table occupied in the restaurant, with over 10 staff (talking amongst themselves) - had to request drinks three times (um, water). Very slow food prep. Don't even think about taking a water bottle with you. Music: so loud I... More

The vibe is fantastic, food fabulous and the service very good. Five stars to the manager who went the extra mile to arrange our table for 5 when our reservation, made a week in advance was lost. Being able to produce our email confirmation counted in our favour. Despite the little hiccup, we had a fab time. Tiquila shots👍

The 'new' Cubana has moved position to the upper floor, i.e. the entrance to Cedar Square from the main road. It looks more inviting here than in the previous location on the lower level where the supermarkets are. Also the decor seems to having been upgraded. Very nice. We went there twice for a quick lunch during the week. The... More

Had a quick bite to eat, but the chicken was rotting and the panini raw. The coffee was not fit for human consumption and the service was so bad I wanted to leave without paying. No manager in site and to top it all off, the place is so filthy it smarts of a rat nest! I am appalled that... More

Another vastly overrated restaurant/bar in Johannesburg. The seating is comfortable, and the food is good, but the pricing cannot be justified. Lots of cocktails, bouncers and pretentious patrons.

Been to Cubana a week ago to have some drinks and a quick bite with my other half. Waiter was helpful explaining the house specials (cocktails and whiskeys), yet we opted for 2 pints of local beer. It took a while to decide what to eat as most options were typical pub food, or so we thought... We ordered three-cheese... More
