Lovely vibe. Beautiful decor and good service. Food was good enough, effort on service was by far the best.

“Big dissapointment”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Interior wise, worth a visit for a drink or two. However absolutely no passion for its guests and especially not if you bring kids ( although "well behaved"). Big dissapointment in terms of service. We asked for some wine recommendations and was suggested "red". Food nice , but not enjoyable as the overall experience was very dissapointing.

“Terrible”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

I've never understood the appeal of this place. I hadn't been for years and reminded myself why very quickly. I don't think they've changed the decor since last time I was there. 'Rustic' may be in, but broken and old crosses the line.
We managed to get a waiters attention on our third round of drinks and the bar lady seemed to think she was doing me a favour getting my drinks from behind the counter (and refusing to pass them through the window)

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Sadly my lamb dish was very tough and I would have to say that possibly the Spur would have presented a better looking dish then the one served up at Cape to Cuba. Very overpriced for what was delivered. The restaurant is beautiful but the experience was marred by the poor quality of the food and the serious smokers sitting just outside the restaurant on the balcony. Would I go back - maybe - but not too soon.

“Authentic Dining”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

After driving past Cape to Cuba a few times and wondering what it was all about, went in for lunch on Saturday. Best Mojito and Marguerita's to start followed by fresh line fish, yellow tail so often dry but this was moist and delicious. Great Paella and spicy prawns
