I went there last night to eat something and drink something with friends. We ordered, chicken wings, yucca, Guacamole and Churros, Spanish Tortilla and fried sea food. Everything was delicious! The problem??? The waiter. She really did not want to work that day. Only one menu for 3 persons, we ask for one new; No napkins...we asked...she put a bunch... More

I have been there after dinner with my colleagues and we really enjoined the place, nice music and great drinks. The Mojito was tasty but thet serve several kind of cocktails and they have also spirits and beers. I have tried their food but I will be back there for sure.

Stopped here for dinner on my last trip to Geneva. Food and service was good and if I'm ever in the area again would probably go back.

The mojitos were really nice! Food was ok. We where there for a birthday, nice music, good atmosphere! Sadly too close to the parc that is a bit weird at night (drug dealer). I would recommend it for a birthday!

This club looks very tropical from outside because of fun cane parasol. Inside every looks very cuban. Drinks are not bad but nothing special and we also try tapas which is quite poor. Good to try for atmosphere but all around are better places for drinking and eating.

I went to Cafe Cuba to meet friends for a coffee and lunch. The atmosphere and decor is great, we had comfortable couches to sit on instead of a table, but I was disappointed with the menu. Several of the items were not available, including one of the "plat du jour" items! I couldn't believe that you would have a... More

I am usually a stickler for great food, but this is one of the places I let it pass. I don't find their tapas the best there are, but combine them with a mojito (absolutely fantastic!), the great service and the fun atmosphere - and it keeps me coming back. I constantly end up here after work or at weekends... More

Were a group of eight that landed up this place, on a pub-crawl celebrating a friend's birthday. The menu has "greasy" but passable tapas, helpful if you want to line your stomach for more drink. The Mojito however was "discount and measly" - wrong rum, diluted and badly made!! Not nice when the establishment is named Cafe Cuba!!! Service was... More

We went the first night we arrived after only sleeping little on the plane then touring all day. The food was great! The fish and chips were good, the steak with butter sauce was GREAT! The hamburgers and quesidillas were great. The main issue was we had to translate before we knew what we were ordering! Most restaurants we found... More
