Had a quick bite to eat, but the chicken was rotting and the panini raw. The coffee was not fit for human consumption and the service was so bad I wanted to leave without paying. No manager in site and to top it all off, the place is so filthy it smarts of a rat nest! I am appalled that... More

Another vastly overrated restaurant/bar in Johannesburg. The seating is comfortable, and the food is good, but the pricing cannot be justified. Lots of cocktails, bouncers and pretentious patrons.

Been to Cubana a week ago to have some drinks and a quick bite with my other half. Waiter was helpful explaining the house specials (cocktails and whiskeys), yet we opted for 2 pints of local beer. It took a while to decide what to eat as most options were typical pub food, or so we thought... We ordered three-cheese... More

We went to the Cubana lounge for late drinks. It was very crowded and noisy. The service was good and the place in general alright. Nothing special.

Terrible. Empty wouldn't allow a 20 year old to eat. Bad, rude explanation. Though an 18 year old had been there with a group the week before.

The lack of customer service skills was shocking. One waiter even shouted at us because we dared to let the owner know we were unhappy with the lack of service (Themba). The owner was so indifferent he just brushed off our complaint and said 'not my problem'. I have never seen such a badly run establishment. I felt so stupid... More

Was looking forward to cigars and drinks with a friend. When seated we were told that we can smoke here. Upon lighting my cigar security came running and told me not to smoke my cigar. You are only allowed to smoke cigars bought in the Bar at rip-Off prices!!!! We left without having a drink. While most places in the... More
