Description: the very special and Authentic Cuban restaurant, Buena Vista on the R44 is just the spot for any event worth celebrating, a timeless Gem in the heart of breath taking Winelands. Our food is simply delicious, whether it's our Tapas or main meals, not to mention our now World Class cocktails...

The venue is situated at a somewhat secluded place, just far enough from the R44 to not feel the traffic. The parking is always full, as this is a popular place for good reason.

The food is delicious and in generous portions, albeit a bit pricey though. I presume they are primarily a cocktail bar as their drinks menu is longer than the food menu. I can imagine that you could spend a fortune on the tapas and not regret it at all!

I have been to Buena Vista in large groups and just as a family and the food is always delish and the service good even when it is busy.
Weekends are obviously more vibey and its a great place to go in a group.

We were a group of 22 people celebrating my husband’s birthday. The restaurant was not very busy however the food took 90minutes and by the time it came was not good at all. It was average to tasteless. Drinks was a mission to get and we settled for water as it was easy to get from the bar. The waiter was in a flat and tried to be friendly but was stressed as she had no assistance. When asking the other waiters to assist with sauce for the kids food, well we are still waiting........ As we did not want to spoil our celebration we settled for the poor service and quality of food. We visited the restaurant prior and was delighted in the place hence opting for the venue, but what a disappointment!!!! The venue is beautifully situated. I hope this was just a bad experience and not a norm. For many it was their 1st and I’m sure their last☹️

Enjoyed supper with family at this restaurant. Service was friendly. Just ordered in time to avoid a power outage. Food well-prepared and sides served with mains were great. Enjoyed the outside as inside was a bit stuffy and not smelling great.
