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.
I absolutely love this place! The music, food and overall vibe is awesome. Excellent service. Looking forward to going back.
Terrible service, very disappointed. Was on a bit of a tight timeframe (which was why I picked it - in the past they have been able to turn around a meal nice and quickly) and by the time the order was taken (it took three attempts and another waitress) there wasn't time to cook what we wanted. Left hungry as we couldn't order a full meal before the theatre
Great atmosphere and drinks and food good.
Great atmosphere. Great food. Good value for money. Will definitely come again
Food has improved. Bustling, bright atmosphere. Worth it for the passionfruit mojitos alone.. it’s got to be a jug! Quick bite before going to the Vaults. Check it out. Great sunny afternoon venue.
It was a wonderful time spent at Cubana, the staff was absolutely amazing and very helpful and food so delicious. I do love this place and definitely, I will visit yet.
Table wasn't ready when we arrived but we were promptly kicked off when our time was up... Food very bland although the drinks selection was good, service alright - all in all, a bit average but in a great location. Also kept being moved out of particular areas and then back in, which was irritating. Wouldn't go back.
Cocktails are delicious and such a good price when it’s happy hour! Food was really good and came quickly. The atmosphere was very fun, I would definitely recommend!
Radiators on, on a hot day. Quite busy/packed. Food portions are TINY, but delicious, therefore overpriced for the size.
Our first visit with friends who had been before and recommended as a great place to go. Did enjoy the atmosphere and food and drinks were very good. At first were told could only have our pre-booked table for 90 mins if the place got too busy (not expected that) but fortunately we were able to stay longer, we did buy copious amounts of mojito and sangria. Live music started up which was a bonus, all in all a great evening and would go back when back in London.
Fab visit.... as always!! Great atmosphere, great service and truly great food! You’ll come back again and again ..... xx
Great lively atmosphere. Only down side is it takes an age to get a drink at the bar. We waited 40mins to be served.
Great margaritas thanks!
Really great service and tasty food
Cubana is one of my favourite restaurants in London. Dining here feels like a truly Cuban experience. The food, service and drinks were exceptional, and I am planning my next trip.
Lovely staff and great atmosphere
quite difficult to get anyone to take our food order at the bar.
Had an awful experience dining here. Food took over an hour to arrive, despite people arriving after who got their food before us. We were assured it was being cooked in the Kitchen, when it arrived it was luke warm and very bland. Asked for the bill and was given the wrong one which was more expensive. Asked to speak to the manger and complained. Got money off for the two mains, it was so bad we went elsewhere for dessert. Took forever to wait for someone to come and take the payment and in the end we went to the till to pay! I wouldn't go back, horrible food and far too long to wait. Very unorganised!
Was a great evening with delicious food and great service. A little dismaying to hear that 50% of the automatically added service charge goes to the company. Whilst the experience itself was great, I refuse to frequent restaurants that implicitly steal from their employees. Service charge should go to those working in the restaurant and not to the company.
Our server was really nice and food is amazing! Choice of happy hour drinks are great.
Great food, friendly service, reasonable prices, easy online booking and conveniently located near Waterloo station. I will definitely be back!
The food was ok with a lot of items unavailable & we were hastily ushered off the table after 2 hours when I had been warned when booking. Far from relaxing!
Dreadful food, no atmosphere
Wasn't impressed with the food and quite pricey for nothing. Area had a foul smell; and not nice when bar staff use bare hands to handle some of the cocktail ingredients - perhaps they should consider washing their hands, wearing gloves or using tongs when making cocktails. Will think twice before visiting again.
Favourite restaurant in central London!
