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.

Love it every time. The blenders are so loud they are super annoying - only complaint.

Upon arrival we found that the hostess was ignoring us and having a conversation with another waitress as we were waiting to be seated. The attitude in general was unpleasant. The table we were seated at was cramped and uncomfortable. The cocktails were very bitter.

The viejo ropa was amazing - the first time I've had plantains and they were really good. I've been before on a week day evening when the atmosphere is even better as there's lots of people outside on the street bar, but lunchtime on a Saturday was very chilled.

The service was awful, so slow and the lady didn’t even bring all of the things we ordered so we just settled for what she did bring. She didn’t understand what I was saying half the time. Usually have a great time here but this time the service was so awful we didn’t even pay the service charge. The Plantain was also cold when it arrived to us. Not a great experience at all. Very disappointed!

We organised a birthday dinner at Cubana and it was lovely! It’s a great place to have a small group for some food and drinks. We made it just in time for the happy hour special and the choices were fantastic! Everyone enjoyed their meals and there were plenty of vegetarian friendly options! The ambience is really lively and casual. Service was wonderful and we had our orders taken quickly and food at our table within a reasonable time. I’d highly recommend if you are looking for a fun group dinner or happy hour drinks after work! It’s a little piece of Cuba within dreary and cold London!

Overall, Good atmosphere, fun, good for late night dancing. This was our second visit, previously we went mid week. This time.... Booked table for 8pm on a Saturday but receptionist claimed it was booked for 845. Place was heaving and long wait for bar Service. We were not seated until almost 9. Manager apologised and provided two jugs of lemony cocktails gratis at table. We were then rushed away from table after an hour as they had to clear downstairs and upstairs dining areas for dancing (dine earlier! Oh, we tried to). DJ played Latino dance music and lower area packed tight with dancers. Food filling, okay, but not amazing. Cocktails - we had six jugs between us but left sober. Perhaps they economise on alcohol? But some people, particularly group of youngish (Cubana?) next to us were absolutely smashed out of their brains and needed to GET A ROOM but staff and even the bouncers just left them to it, perhaps they were part of the entertainment!

After waiting 20 mins behind another party, the hostess finally came back to ask us if we had a reservation. We said we have one 20 minutes ago but due to her inability to help in an efficient manner, we were “late” to our reservation. She then proceeded to tell us it’s our fault even though she was absent from her position running around. I’m so disappointed. Then when we were eating the waitress aggressively took the plates from us and practically shoved us from our table to service more guests. Unacceptable behavior. Training must be dons again.
