The food was wonderful! Our group of 5 ordered tapas and had a richly variable selection: prawns, pulpo, salmon ceviche, lamb cigars, and calamari. We also had a wonderful chocolate dessert. When the band was playing - and they were good - it was difficult to talk with one another.

I really like this restaurant unfortunately this time, the service was a bit off. Ordered two cocktails and tapas and we were almost finished the tapas before the drinks came. Our table was not cleared before our mains came. The food is always lovely. Very tasty and good example of origins. Good wine list and bar range is extensive.

We came back as we loved the food and were thrilled on Friday night with the entertainment- 2 dancers in great costumes who made the evening not only more enjoyable but also memorable-we will be back.

We were told the paella was of top quality standard - appeared to have no chicken so must have been cut finer than the rice. It was extremely salty with two prawns and two mussels and rice. not good value for the price

Found this restaurant on the internet and booked based on the reviews. $40/hd banquet was good value, well paced delivery of food and good variety. Adequate for male and female to share each dish. Even though we booked for 5.30pm we were not pushed out for the 2nd sitting. Drinks a little expensive but cocktails very nice. Will go again.

Lovely atmosphere with really good Cuban dancers who added to the enjoyment of the night. The food was excellent althought if you were a big eater the meals may have been a bit small but as a small eater they were perfect. Love the cocktails.

The Cuban was okay, however I probably wouldn't go back any time soon. The starters were greatly overpriced and very average. We ordered the antipasto and received a tiny bowl of olives that looked and tasted straight from a jar, it had about 2 cubes of fetta in the mix and a couple of pieces of toasted bread. The main reason our time wasn't as enjoyable as we had hoped was the waiter. He never came back to ask us if we wanted drinks the entire time and we had to flag him down to be able to order any and then when we did receive them he slammed them on the table (unsure if he was intentionally trying to be rude or if he was just extremely heavy handed). The meals were quite a wait and it would have been nice to have had better table service for the price of the meals.
