We ended up eating at The Cuban a few times due to the great food and amazing service. Our party was made up of a few vegetarians so getting the balance between a good meat vs veggie menu is always a challenge - The Cuban ticked those boxes. The menu was varied and covered the needs of all the party.... More

With much to chose from in Oracle Place we decided to try something we hadn't experinced before - Cuban. Our waitress Lisa was patient and knowledgable helping us navigate the menu. We shared a couple of entrees and mains and had a fabulous meal. The mushrooms were exceptional and the Cuban Cigars (sausage) very tasty. But the highlight was the... More

This was a great and easy place for dinner on a Friday night. We were seated promptly and service was really good. One of the Cuban beers was sold out. We ordered the other. The waitress advised of the high alcohol content so if driving we were aware. Excellent RSA. The food was amazing. Great size potions and easy to... More

For someone that is rather fussy when it comes to dining out, I was pleasantly surprised that on opening the menu, I was faced with many decisions on what to eat! From tapas to mains, so much variety was available! I settled with Mojito chicken which should have been served with a jacket potato but rest assured the chef was... More

This is a restaurant on the strip below the Oracle building. Cuban themed in the music playing and the choice of food and beverage. Not sure how authentic however the food was quite nice and our group left very little of the Grand Banquet. Good attentive service overall. In the peak dinner time they were a bit stretched but stayed... More

A group of a dozen of us dined on a busy Saturday night, and I"m pleased to say the staff did very well to keep up with the demand. Consequently, we left as satisfied customers. We had the Grand Havana Banquet ($55 per head) as recommended by our hard-working waitress, and it proved to be a meal of quite outstanding... More

Found this place through Trip Advisor and was so glad we went. We didn't book but lucky enough got the last table. Our French waitress was fantastic and service was faultless by all the staff. We ordered meatballs, prawns,pork belly, Beef cheeks and the cigars and it was all fantastic! Even the Argentinan bottle of red was nice. Look forward... More

Went to this restaurant with elderly parents and sister. Great looking menu and always nice to have a different cuisine to try. The food was tasty - three paellas were ordered all different and each as good as the other. My fav the ( VEGAN - joke ) mojito- perfect amount of flavours in a glass filled with ice, mint... More
