    The calamari was the best we have ever eaten. The Paella was a bit disappointing, but we are spoilt with Paella in Melbourne. Friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable team who went out of their way to look after us. We would come back, but would select dishes from the menu as opposed to taking the banquet option

    It was my birthday. Service was impeccable. Food was outstanding! I’m a chef and that is the most amazing, tender calamari I have ever eaten. Beautiful spot, cocktails were on point. Left The Cuban feeling full and satisfied. Will recommend it to anyone I know spending time on the Gc

    We came from out of town and were hopeful for a good time based on the reviews we had read. We were incredibly disappointed with the experience. Cocktails were great, food was tolerable, service was crap and where we were seated made us feel like they didn't want out business. We are usually happy to seat and eat and drink cocktails but after seated and eventually getting a drink all we wanted to do was leave. Please note that the toliets for this restaurant are some distance walk down the street for those with guests this may be a consideration for.

    Very impressed! Had the $50 tasting menu. All food was fresh with good flavour. Portion sizes good. Best Chorizo I’ve ever had! Kids meal disappointing however. $17 for half a breast of grilled chicken and no joke 5 hot chips. Otherwise service and drink selection very good. Will be back!

    We ate from the tapas menu. The dishes were tasty, but some were warm rather than hot. The Empanada was the standout. Caviar de Berenjena was delicious; an unusual combination. The sauce with Pimiento del Piqullio was excellent as was the sauce with the Tortilla de Patata, but the Tortilla itself was rather bland. So top scores for all the sauces. More please, when the dish is bland. The Churros were piping hot and delicious. Again dipping sauces were excellent. The staff were extremely helpful and service was excellent. It turns out the online menu is out of date so two of the tapas we were looking forward to having were not on the current menu. Please update your website so customers are not disappointed.

    The Cuban was incredible - the food was some of the best we’ve had at any restaurant, and I’ve found my new favourite cocktail in the Skully & Stormy! Service was excellent, the music was great, and I’m definitely eager to go back again.

    Had a lovely meal, three of us shared tapas so we got to taste everything, although the menu has been limited due to Covid over the last two years we still enjoyed everything we ate, look forward to going back once the full menu is reinstated.

    Have been here several times and the food and service is always incredible. This last time the service suffered a little but it was obviously only because of the lack of staff- our waiter was brilliant, but he’s only one man. It will not stop us coming back.

    The service was outstanding. The food I think was nice however I feel could incorporate some more Latin flavoured dishes. I am as well expecting more Latin dishes such as ceviche and pork dishes.

    The worst choice of dishes on banquet menu I have ever had. The portions are ridiculous. 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.

    Food as always was amazing, especially the Cuban paella and chicken skewers. Special shout out to our server (French boy), we all loved his energy and how sociable he was with us. Food took a while but understandable since it was a busy night
