You expect a greater variety of food and size of portions for $70. It was my birthday and I disappointed. I am not going to recommend this place. Sorry.

The food was very ordinary though and nothing special. We ordered the pork entree which was the highlight of the night. The prawn Gambas entree was disappointing, the rice was plain and the dish came with 4 prawns, probably not worth the amount. We also ordered the chicken paella which wasn’t amazing either. We have no desire to return.

We were seated outside, and as it was school holidays, there were 5 very young, unsupervised children running and screaming near us the whole time we were there. Certainly NOT the fault of The Cuban. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you.
