There is much solidarity with the Caribbean at Café Cuba, a low lit and comfortable restaurant serving a variety of dishes. Decorated with photographs, wooden shutters and wrought iron railings, it speaks of old Havana with an ambience that evokes the era of Castro and Guevara. Large tables and comfy booths provide ample space to relax and enjoy, with an outside area permitting al fresco dining. A fresh new menu focuses more on Cuban dishes yet still provides great variety and choice.
Crêpes, tacos and quesadillas filled with beans, beef, chicken and cheese provide true Cuban flavours, while the tacos with lime and chilli marinated prawns is an interesting and spicy option. Main courses of steaks, banana leaf wrapped salmon and slow cooked tender beef brisket are natural choices but the rigatoni alla Greca in a tasty lamb ragù makes it a tough decision. Crispy and crunchy salads are offered with a fruity Caribbean edge, as is a varied focaccia and pizza menu. Side dishes of deep fried plantains, Cuban rice and spicy potato wedges make great accompaniments. Additionally, Cuba now offers a special menu section called “Cuba Vida” featuring healthy eating options including a selection of vegetarian/vegan dishes and wholemeal pasta and pizza pastry. If you have any room left then a selection of meringues, cakes and other desserts wrap up a great meal.
