A nice experience. Food was great.
Service was fine. The girl was young and tried her best.
A few little hiccups eg: two people ordered the same thing but only one was brought out. Two different red wines were ordered abs served to the wrong people
But overall, a nice experience

We came here for our anniversary, due to limited staff they weren’t doing and cocktails which wasn’t an issue for us.
The staff were friendly and professional and the service was outstanding.
We ordered a set menu which arrived quickly, the food was delicious with plenty provided between our table.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for both a special occasion or just a casual meal.

3rd time visiting. Food excellent as always. Service a little slow, but understand that most places are short-staffed. Cold rainy night so not very warm or comfortable despite being inside, as next to the door. Always amazes me that most staff dont speak Spanish! Anyways enjoyed again, thanks!

Excellent service from the moment we arrived until we left.
We both had the Varadero Banquet. Banquet consisted of 6 tapas which allowed us to try various dishes.
Food was beautifully authentic and very tasteful.
Banquet although appears small, the tapas are so rich in flavour it leaves you very full. Absolutely value for money.
Would definitely recommend.

It was our second visit in a month @The Cuban & it was just as good as the first. Same friendly faces with exceptional service and good quality food. Great cocktails too.
….The Cuban Sandwich though…. If your a foodie , Once u have it you’ll keep dreaming about it!
Thanks again to Pierre and the rest of the crew. Always a pleasure.

We went along here after a recommendation by a friend. There was 4 kids and 2 adults in our party and another 2 people eating in the restaurant. The service was ok, they tried, but the food was such poor quality. Even the kids who were ravenous struggled to be polite and eat it.
