Lovely building and atmosphere with great mojitos and latin drinks althogh the food is overrated and pricy for what it is as Cuban food is very simple.

Had such a lovely visit to The Cuban, the service was excellent as soon as I walked in. We were welcomed to a table where a lovely waitress offered us a drinks menu and food menu. Our food and drinks arrived quickly and the food was amazing! The waitress held friendly and fun conversation and even got the manager involved!... More

I've never had a bad meal here and I have visited this place quite a few times. Tapas are honestly so delicious and the cocktails as well! Staff always so friendly and polite. I think they should work more on advertising the restaurant, as people need to try this place out.

I can't say I have ever eaten here, but as a bar/club, I love this place. It will always be the first stop when I return to Canterbury, a great place with a real cosmopolitan/mixed crowd!
