We have been to the Cuban many times over the years, always good service and great food. We ordered 4 tapas plates and only one of them was "good". Their new way of cooking calamari reminded me of a fish and chip shop. Service was slow and we weren't offered more drinks so we left. Food and service has gone down hill, won't be returning.

We booked with cuban for a 30th birthday and because of the time restrictions on the tables of 1.30 mins we decided to book the $40 Varadero banquet before arriving, but the food we received was not what we ordered and my wife cannot eat sea food which was so disappointing. Also there was no Cuban music playing to give a nice atmosphere

4th time to the Cuban and once again enjoyed it. I did unfortunately have a slight Coeliac reaction but the restaurant had appropriately warned me that cross contamination could occur. Highly recommend the Tapas and Spanish wines.

Thank you for a great lunch, we all agreed the meal was great. Unfortunately we couldn't stay, enjoy and drink a bit more as two of the group had to head back to Brisbane. We would are planning to come back when we are all together longer next time.
We have already recommended you to our friends.

Thank you again.

Whilst on holidays in Broadbeach we went to The Cuban twice with 2 different couples. We all enjoyed the food and our waitress Ellie was amazing giving great suggestions and even remembered what we had ordered the previous visit. Will go again next time we are in Broadbeach.

My husband and I went to the Cuban for dinner on Valentines day, night. It was lovely. First impression was the friendliness of the staff. We had a great table outside and the live music really set the mood for a romantic evening, the guy singing was AWESOME!
The waitress that took our order was friendly and very helpful. We opted for Tapas and she guided us through our selection so that we did not end up with dishes that were too similar. Also recommended where we may need to order an additional serve etc.
It was a lovely dinner, with great service and good food. Would definitely go again and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Make sure you reserve a table as they will seat you outside near a DJ if you don’t. the ropa vieja we had was spot on, the tapas was quite expensive though, it was $16 for six corn chips with lime and some salsa. The waitress was really nice and service was prompt

Food was outstanding - we had simple tapas plates and all 3 dishes were superb - the Calamari was probably the best I have ever had. It was busy and some personal service and closer attention would have been nice but it wasnt really an issue. Well done The Cuban.

We loved our dinner at The Cuban.
We started with sharing 4 tapas and each had a main plus a jug of Sangria. We were stuffed and loved everything we tried.
Great music playing in the background. Nice pace with the service.
Highly recommend.
