About Cubana Smithfield

Cubana at Smithfield is the sister restaurant of the famous Cubana at Waterloo - the place which introduced Mojitos to the UK way back in the '90s! Cubana is much loved for real, slow-cooked Cuban food - prepared with fresh, sustainable, free-range produce - as well as fresh tropical cocktails plus smoothies and live Salsa music.

Cubana at Smithfield also roasts its own Cuban coffee - available in 100% plastics-free, recyclable take-away cups! There is an in-house bakery specialising in artisan sourdough breads and yummy pastries and donuts.

With an eat-in or take-out café and lunch time Street Food as well as a full bar and restaurant, Cubana at Smithfield is open from early to late with live Salsa music - check the website for seasonal opening times (Cubana at Waterloo is open seven days a week throughout the year with late night Salsa music).

Cubana at Smithfield is great for parties, children-friendly, with good disabled access and plenty of veggie and vegan dishes.

Such a friendly staff, and a very lovely place. Affordable, good food and drinks, and we had a lovely team celebration at Cubana. Thanks very much- especially to the fantastic waitress that even helped us with some fun decorations!

If your looking for a good Friday night with, some genuine latin vibes, this is the place for you. With a wonderful live band, you get to enjoy the melodies of great latin music while you eat your meal. The food is incredibly delicious, with a range of healthy meals with generous servings. All in all, a great night out, and good value for money.

We had a brilliant time at Cubana celebrating my wife’s birthday. Drinks were priced well and the atmosphere was relaxed but fun. The food was fabulous, really nice street food vibe. Would definitely return!

A lovely meal as ever at Cubana with live music and they even gave us lovely hot citrusy cookies for free. 2 for 1 cocktails during happy hour are a real bargain.

Recently booked a meal for a group of 28 people, was very pleased with the quality of food and service. Also a favourite of mine for takeout lunch. Will miss this place as I am moving to a new job in a different area.

Amazing atmosphere with live Cuban music. Food was delicious (specially the pulled pork and plantain) and the 2x1 cocktails are a great deal. Definitively we'll come back to Cubana.

Very colourful cafe and restaurant scene with live Salsa music on some nights. Food was really tasty and the 12yr Old Havana Club was really smooth. We will be back.

Cubana were so generous in offering their venue and services for a fundraising event. The service was fantastic, I couldn't have asked for more. Everyone loved the food too! I would recommend it to everyone.

Great meal as ever at Cubana; great value for money and all plates cleared - the only negative was it took a while to get drinks that we had ordered due to staff dealing with lunchtime takeaways, there were times when we could see the drinks waiting on the bar but took ages for them to take them to the table.

We had heard great reviews about Cubana Waterloo and thought that this would be the same...I believe there maybe more of a party atmosphere in the evening at Waterloo, but it didn't feel like that at Smithfield and as we were there for our Christmas works party, it left us feeling a little deflated. Food was good and so was the service; good choice of cocktails too.
