A huge thanks to the lovely waitress from the Czech Republic and the lovely chap from Portugal both served us amazingly well and always with a smile.
Food amazing as always and so much of it, we had the banquet with desert and were full to overflowing on departure.

Thre cocktails were very, very good. Well made and presented. I will go back for more.
The food was very good too. We have four very good tapas between two and that was more than enough.

This was my second to The Cuban and both times have loved it. Had the banquet both times and want to have it again. I keep telling friends how good this place is and it's a must when in broadbeach. Not sure how you couldn't like it.

Came to the Cuban earlier in the year and were super happy so chose it for my wife's 60th family lunch. Food was good but not great. The service was very slow. Staff were friendly.

First time at the Cuban and won't be the last. Interesting drinks menu with huge range of rums - and very good selection of innovative cocktails. We had the tapas, best we've had in a long time. Not the cheapest place in town but definitely worth the price.

We had a Sunday lunch with friends from Melbourne. We selected from the Tapas Menu but didn't share. The food was tasty and delivered quickly. The Red Sangria, served by the glass and jug, was excellent. I've been there a few times as I'm a local and will continue to return.

Went with a group of 4 on a busy Saturday evening. It was a bit later so we decided just to have mains and they were all really nice. The ambience is good it has a good energy feel to it. Drinks and food service was prompt and the waiting staff were friendly although the Maitre De was a bit stauch.

We had dined here a few time before and it had been a while so thought it would be a great place for a Saturday night out.
BUT, I wouldn't dine here again.
Service was poor and they couldn't get the food order right.
To top it off, I thought restaurants survived on being attentive and offering more drinks when your glass is empty, we all had empty glasses for half the meal and not once did anyone offer more.
We went elsewhere afterwards and this restaurant lost out on alcohol and dessert revenue.
Food was ok.

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

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.

Great food, great staff and great couches.
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????
