The service was very slow and the food was tasteless. Far better and nicer restaurants surround Cafe Cuba.

My partner and I came here twice on our holiday the food was amazing and they staff could not be faulted. The young man on front of house was amazing trying to make sure everyone had the best view.

I didn't expect a restaurant in Malta to have great American style pork ribs, but Cafe Cuba did not disappoint. All around the table, everyone enjoyed their meal.

We went here for dinner, and the drinks were not made well. Margaritas made with lemon juice and a pina colada made with enough syrup to make your teeth rot. The pizza was dry and flavourless, and my boyfriend got the ribs, which were pre-boiled so had pretty much had any flavour soaked out of them. Would not recommend, despite... More

Visited on the 7th September and i really enjoyed the pulled porked roll,which had a really delicious subtle kick to the sauce,which i loved,and my wife really enjoyed her Fatira and Tuna fish roll. Nice to sit and look out at Spinola Bay and watch the crazy Maltese drivers!

Even though this restaurant is very busy they know what they are doing. Its one of the best burgers I have had in a long time as I don't normally eat them but can't fault.

All the restaurants in the harbour area were full. We were lucky to get in here. Be prepared to wait for your food as this restaurant is large and spread over 3 areas. The food is with waiting for. The staff are friendly and welcoming, but it appears that they are disorganised. There is a method to how they work,... More

Thank goodness there was just the 2 of us or I fear there would have been a long wait. Half a rack of ribs was more than enough for me whilst my husband demolished one of speciality burgers. Go early or book if youre in a group.
