Excellent service, great food and moderately priced.

I will definitely be back.

Thanks to Pier (manager), not sure if I spelt your name right so sorry in advance.

He made us feel really relaxed and offered some great options around food and drinks.

Lovely food and drinks, love the salsa music.
Our churros were overcooked but apart from that everything was divine!

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 took some friends last night and we were all very impressed with not just the food but all staff and we will definitely come back we were quite amazed the waiter recognised us from our last visit which is pretty cool. It's a very friendly place it's relaxed and the food is really tasty so I would highly recommend

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.

Empanada was delicious. Mojito was good as you'd expect.

I know many establishments are short-staffed right now and it appeared the host could've used an extra hand - Just felt that the service was a bit cold and we had to constantly flag the staff down to order food and drinks as we were left waiting at the table for quite awhile. I would've ordered a few more drinks and stayed there after our food however it was too hard to get their attention so we just went somewhere else.

Best Nachos! Food is delicious 😋
I was a bit surprised with the price of food $$ is advertised thru OpenTable however when sitting looking at the menu $$$ - $$$$mum even mentioned that it was on the expensive side. Menu has many options. Cocktails look great.

We thought the food was good if not a little flat or bland. Perhaps that’s the style of Cuban food? Service was fast and attentive. Some live music would improve the atmosphere which was okay but Cuban implies that sort of colour and I guess we were hoping for that. Overall good but not great.
