About Cubana Waterloo

London's freshest, juiciest bar-restaurant - and the place which introduced Mojitos to the UK in the 1990s. Known as a fun venue, Cubana's fresh tropical cocktails are legendary - and reasonably priced.
Also famous for slow-cooked Cuban and Latin-American dishes and tapas, freshly- made in-house with sustainable and free-range produce.

Open late every night, seven days a week including holidays, with live Salsa music. Cubana is child-friendly, great for parties, has a good selection of veggie and vegan foods and is disabled-accessible.
There is a weekday lunchtime Street-food stand using plastics-free, recyclable disposable cups, food boxes and cutlery - and great, reasonably priced lunchtime and pre-theatre menus.

Cubana's sister restaurant at Smithfield also roasts Cuban coffee and has an artisan bakery.

Really lovely evening, just a little cramped at the table and a bit slow on service.

Nearly half of the menu was unavailable! Lots of staple ingredients were just ‘sold out’ (and it’s not like we were eating late in the day or anything). Food we did order was disappointing. The toilets were revolting - the worst I’ve ever seen at a restaurant in terms of cleanliness. Cannot fault wait staff who were really nice and are clearly doing their best under terrible management.

It's always a pleasure eating and drinking at Cubana - it's one of my favourite places to come! My main feedback would be PLEASE please consider adding a vegan dessert to your menu (not a sorbet!) as your other desserts sound so nice and it's a shame for a vegan/ dairy free to miss out on the full experience. Also sometimes the staff can seem a little irritated especially during happy hour - which is understandable but it does lower the mood slightly. But I always recommend for people to come here and the food/ drinks are delicious and the vibe is great!

Really disappointed with my first visit - food took an hour and was cold. Also ran out of yucca chips and the beer we wanted.

The food was delicious and quite authentic; the atmosphere was very welcoming and warm, it all felt very on-brand. However, while the dish that I ordered - the 'ropa vieja' - was good, I felt like 12£ was too expensive.

Was a great atmosphere and great food. Unfortunately because there was different music playing inside and outside, we couldn’t really hear any particular music but still loved the vibe

Never been before, a bit chaotic, but nice atmosphere. Very friendly staff, but lack of english a bit of a problem. Difficult to order. Everything came together. Good fun.Would come again.

We booked a table for 7pm but arrived at 6:30pm, so decided to go straight to our table. The person on reception said we would only have the table for 90 minutes. I said that we had not told, when we booked, that our time would be limited. She insisted it was on the website and would have been clear when I we booked but I just checked and there is definitely nothing about a 90 minute maximum. So then we asked if we take our table now (6:30pm), given we booked for 7pm, would we have the table to 8:30pm. No, we were told, only from the time we sat down, so we needed to be out by 8pm. So we went to the pub across the road until 7pm. As all of our party were male, I cannot comment on the women's toilets but there seemed to be just two toilets for men, both with very long queues. They were serving Mojitos in jugs whose alcohol content did not appear to match the volume. On a brighter note, our waiter was really terrific and the ice cream was very good indeed. Food was average. Definitely will not go back.

Had a reservation but front of house couldn't find it. Showed the confirmation email and they eventually found us a table but there was no apology and the vibe was far from friendly. Food was amazing. We all really enjoyed our meal and would definitely return for the food. But at no point during our visit did a single waitress smile or speak in a manner that showed they wanted to be there. Bottom line, great food, miserable service.
