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.

the food and the service were very good but don't expect a quiet dinner, it was in December, lots of obnoxious and loud staff Christmas dinners.

Have been many times for after work drinks but recently went for work Xmas dinner and happy to say food and service were exceptional. There was a slight mix up with the bill but this was not the staffs fault and was resolved by the manager who was very polite and professional. Have and always will recommend this place to anyone and everyone!

We attended Saturday night, as we saw a play at the Old Vic. The decor and atmosphere was great, the lady serving us was lovely, and the food was very filling and tasted amazing The only thing that let this place down was how cold the restaurant was, I would not return during the winter however a summer visit will be concerned.

The food in cubana is always really really good. The cocktails were great as well. The service was good and attentive My staff team had a really good time here and everyone really enjoyed their meals that they had ordered. i have been to Cubana many times before and have always found the atmosphere chilled and the food to be exceptional.

Food/ drinks were excellent. Service was good and fast. Only downside was that the music was a bit loudy (we went for lunch), so difficult to hear the company. Would recommend this place to other people.

Had pre-dinner drinks (really good deals during happy-hour!) and dinner at Cubana on Thursday for a small company Christmas dinner. Atmosphere is really nice, good music (perhaps slightly too loud) and funky Cuban-style decorations. Service was very nice and food very good, probably a slight variation of Cuban dishes which definitely made them tastier! Would recommend!

We had a great time - the happy hour is really good value, the service was good and the food was delicious and well priced. My only criticism was that we felt a little bit rushed as we needed to vacate the table so had to finish our drinks outside. Totally understandable as the restaurant was so busy but not ideal in December! Thanks for a lovely time though. :)

Always wanted to visit this venue after seeing it from the train. A visit to The Old Vic prompted this and we were not disappointed. Staff are great and very efficient and Happy Hour made even more enjoyable.

Weren’t acknowledged on arrival, and our table was late. We felt a bit uncomfortable, but as soon as we were seated a lovely lady served our table and was so friendly and made our evening extremely enjoyable! X

My friend and I visited Cubana Wednesday evening. The food and drinks were enjoyable however the service was terrible. After 20mins we still hadn’t received our first order of drinks. Our server barely came over and we had to keep getting his attention to place orders. When we were told we had to give up our table for the next booking we were still waiting on drinks we had ordered 20mins earlier. The toilet was in a bad state, water all over the floor and what little toilet paper in there was damp, luckily I had my bag with me so was able to use tissue I had. The experience wasn’t not enjoyable and it has put me off returning. I had booked a table after a visit to the restaurant 5+years ago. I was embarrassed that I had recommended Cubana to my friend. We both left feeling very disappointed.

Despite the restaurant being near empty We were seated downstairs on a table that was in a thoroughfair to the ladies toliets. It was cold and drafty. After asking twice we were allowed to move. The waiter that served us spoke nearly no english. The food was bland and overpriced for what we were given. Considering the majority of the plate was filled with salad. Wouldnt recommend to a friend or revisit

Very unfriendly service, and we were told to rush as they needed the table back - We managed one course in the 90min sitting time. Freezing cold restaurant but nice enough food.
