I've dined in Cuban restaurants regularly in a number of cities and thought I'd try Cubana prior to the theatre. Happy hour is noisy, with a pub feeling. The food menu is a bit limited - not extensive but with some interesting choices. My tortilla...More

Selected from the limited '2 mains pre-theatre' menu option and my pulled beef and partners chicken in orange were both fine. Had some 2 for 1 cocktails. Enjoyed the place. I can imagine on a busy weekend night this place would really come alive. Only...More

4-7 PM every day pitchers of any drink are 2 for the price of 1, and they are very good too. Outside of this time, though, I would not come. It is expensive, and even though the food is good, it takes forever to get...More

Let's be honest, the main reason people come to Cubana is for Happy Hour....and what a glorious time that is, 2-4-1 on all cocktails, even jugs are up for grabs, meaning you can get a huge jug of Long Island Iced Tea for £9 -...More

What a great place Cubana is. I went here for a meal before going to the theatre. Luck was on my side - it was "happy hour" - two Mojito's for £6...can't go wrong really. We ate from the pre-theatre money. Great value for money...More

London's freshest, juiciest bar-restaurant with fantastically reasonably priced fresh tropical cocktails - including the best Mojitos in London - and freshly-prepared, healthy Latin and Cuban food. Open very late with live Latin music and DJs + great low cost lunches
