This was my second time at Cubana in Central Cape Town and my partner's first time and we were both rather disappointed with our visit there. We have made a habit of visiting Cubanas in different cities in the country and this has been the worst. The wait for a table was too long and when a table was finally... More

We were stuck in the area without a car and came to Cubana on recommendation from the receptionist at our hotel. The drinks were good, but I was disappointed when we were told that the whole restaurant is smoking area. We sat as far outside as we could on a rainy night to avoid the smoke. The food was average,... More

The food is basic, texmex with few surprises. It seems a little seedy, but that probably only comes to the fore at night. There were vegetarian options too. No one complained and the baskets we ordered were polished off with gusto. The cocktail menu is a bout 5 times the length of the food menu so that should give you... More

If you have been to Cubanah anywhere, it seems like you have been to all of them. However, this one still has the personal touch of the staff. They offer good friendly service.
