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.

Great atmosphere, fantastic food and drinks and good value. Will definitely return. We were put in a 'loft table for 3' and whilst that was fun to start with, it felt a bit claustrophobic after a while and we probably didn't get the attention of the team so easily.

Service was polite and helpful though the main arrived a bit too quickly after the starter and I felt staff were keen for us to finish the mains. When the music came on it was too loud and hampered conversation but was turned down. There was enough buzz about the place to have no music at all...the ice whizzing machine was also a bit loud. That said the food was yum. The plantains were especially tasty as were the sharing platter starters. The mojitos were good too and everyone was friendly.

We were a bit disappointed with the service last night. We had ordered from the pre-theatre menu and had an hour before we had to leave to see our play, but the food did not arrive until ten minutes before we had to leave. It was then very rushed to eat our food. We did not receive an apology and when I received the bill, I realised later that the dishes had been charged separately rather than from the pre-theatre menu so we had been charged too much. The food was lovely and it was a shame because I like this restaurant a lot; it's very good value. However, this time around it was pretty disappointing because of the problems with service. I hope if I go back this doesn't happen again.

Fab atmosphere, not enough rest rooms, drinks expensive, Sangria was too watered down with ice and needed pepping up with more fruit. Pulled beef was very tasty, prawn dish I had was not brilliant. Friendly service.

Lovely friendly staff, tasty food and HAPPY HOUR!! We had an excellent pre-theatre dinner here. The chicken wings and sauce were the best thing we chose.

The chef's salad came about 5 minutes after the other meals but other than that service was perfect!

I had issues with reservations. I emailed the team add got one response after a while but no confirmation. The telephone for reservations was never picked up and no one ever got back to me after leaving voicemail. The place is very busy so service is inevitably slower but it's worth the wait. Best time to come is during the weekend when is a little more quiet. Food is great and cocktails are lovely for a reasonable price.

Cool decorations, nice food and very good drinks. The staff is really kind and polite. Service is a bit slow and, if you don't book in advance, it's almost impossible to get a table.

Food and drink were great and the staff were too, but there simply weren't enough of them. The atmosphere is fun, but a bit too manic. I will go again because it was a very tasty meal and an amazingly convenient location for going to the Old Vic but I hope they employ a couple more people!

Good service accomodating the fact we showed up early. We were there in happy hour and drinks were great. Place was busy in the sun but not so loud you couldn't hear each other. Good buzz and good food well presented and tasty
