I had heard good things from friends a while ago about how authentic the food was here but I found it rather disappointing. We chose from the pre-theatre menu and had the Croquetas de boniato y chorizo, Tortilla Cubana and Picadillo. The tortilla was bland and the Picadillo was not very aesthetically pleasing, slapped onto the plate in a most unappetising way. Also, I’m not entirely convinced that I was served plantain and that it wasn’t just a regular cooked banana!

Despite the food, Cubana does have good drinking atmosphere and the cocktails were alright so would probably go back for a drink during Happy Hour.


Great food. I love any kind of latin food anyway but this place also had a great atmosphere and lovely staff - even early in the evening when we got there ahead of schedule at 6. We took advantage of the £9 two course pre theatre menu and portions weren't huge but the food was really tasty (great plantain). The happy hour is 7 days a week until 7pm and we tried the two margharitas for £6, and the mojitos for the same price - both were lovely. So close to Waterloo that it was just a couple of minutes to our train down south.
