Belated valentines meal. Viva Cuba is an old favourite which will never get old. Attentive service with a smile, great atmosphere and above all simply magnificent food!
Thank you all for a perfect evening!

“No table for us!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

We wanted to go to Viva Cuba for my daughters birthday on Tuesday (11th Feb) We were a group of 6 and as I was at a work meeting until 7.30 and couldn't get there until 7.45 and we were aware that you cannot book a table at Viva Cuba, 4 of the group went there at 7.30 to get a table. They were told they could not have a table until all the party got there, even though there were empty tables and the told it would be a wait of at least an hour. This we felt was not acceptable and so we went elsewhere and had a really nice evening (see review for Dos Amigos).

“Another great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

We've visited 4 or 5 times and every time it's been great. The food is always delicious and the atmosphere great. Can't fault the service or the value for money. Got there quite early (6.30 ish) so didn't have to wait. Ideal spot for a meal before the cinema.

“Fabulous Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

We had been meaning to visit for some time and finally got around to going at the weekend. As we couldn't book we got there pretty early around 7pm to find the place buzzing and packed out. We went upstairs to the bar to get a drink and told the wait would be around 45 mins which was fine. It was particularly busy and a bit squashed in the bar but definitely worth it. The food arrived promptly and was so nice - the portions were pretty big and everything tasted really good. The staff were helpful and friendly and didn't rush us at all and even got us a taxi within minutes of requesting one. We will definitely go back.

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

Recommended by a friend. It was a rainy Tuesday evening in January so we didn't have to queue for a table. The food was delicious, a varied menu and generous portions. The service was a bit brusque at times, but I would definitely go back.
