The flavours we have created at home ourselfs. The tapas portion sizes are terrible. We got 2 small beef cheeks for $15. Not impressed
The Sangria was the best we have tasted
We travel a lot and visit many different tapas venues to experience flavours from around the world and The Cuban just didn't stand out to us

Fantastic restaurant. The food is delicious and the staff are great. It’s in a busy spot with lots of people walking by but also very convenient. Would highly recommend. As a local, we often go back and take friends visiting.

Great spot for a work dinner with the team who had flown in from all over the country. The menu is extensive enough to cater for all foodie types and the Mojitos are the bomb! Loved it.

Great vibe, with excellent service with a smile from all staff.
A good selection on the menu and ours was great.
Good drink selection and once again quick service was appreciated.

The music man played well to the crowd with popular well sung favorites.
Thanks for making my birthday a good one.

Please ditch the dancing girls who turn up every half an hour for about 10 minutes in ever increasing skimpy outfits and joined by loud back up music....was it even Cuban????

Food was so nice. We had a set menu and received about 5 plates of food. The two of us enjoyed the food and it wasn’t too much it was just the right amount. I also had to have the chocolate pudding which was amazing and worth the wait. There was entertainment too which was nice. Definitely recommend this place. We will be back.
