The menu was quite limited and all Cuban in theme but our meals were really good. Service a bit slow but friendly. The place i very popular so book my was... More

Arrived for a mid week solo dinner mid business trip. No table for 30 minutes. Actually there were plenty empty and the one I was shown to 20m later was empty when i arrived and so where tables around me from arrival to departure. Had beer at the bar while I waited. Bottled Cuban. Its themed restaurant so you should,... More

I visited the Cuban a week ago. We had pre-theatre menu, which includes a starter and main dish for 11 pounds. Also happy hour was very good- we had Pina Colada and Sangria. I would recommend Cuban for drinks and snacks rather than food.Although my overall experience was good, I found the bar staff hostile and a bit rude. If... More

The happy hour from 4- 7 is excellent great deals, tried the food here as a result and it was a bit bland/sweet for a main for my liking. Plantain was good though. Service was a bit slow

If the greatness this Restaurant wishes to achieve is *Average, they succeeded ..The staff were very friendly but. .there was this feeling that youre being rushed because the bill is presented to your table far to early. The food and drink are over priced and nothing special, we ordered a meal described as Chicken breast ,when delivered to our table... More

Cringe worthy office party atmosphere with hostile and condescending bar staff. We ordered a round of beers and were ushered out of the door twelve minutes later by someone banging a gong. Why even serve us or let us in? Are they that hard up for £20?

A very busy place! And that's not without a reason. The food is good, the cocktails are great and the staff is friendly. I've been there a couple of times without a reservation, but that doesn't work. With a reservation, no problem! Due to the lot of customers it's a very noise restaurant, but if you can handle that, just... More

Having passed this place several times before we decided on this occasion to give it a go. We arrived at 4.30pm and the place was already busy with lots of people in the bar and others sitting in the restaurant which by comparison was as good as empty with only 4 others who were just leaving. We asked for a... More

We're sorry that your experience was not as good as you expected, though we are very glad that you enjoyed the food. You arrived as a walk-in on a very busy night when we were fully booked - the only available table was a small one close to the toilet and you were told this was the case. We are... More
