We were here for dinner, it was OK. The menu isn't very extensive but there's enough to choose from. We were sat at a split table, awkwardly close to the people at the next table. After 15 mins we went to the bar to get...More

We visited here with a group of friends in April for some 'cheaper' eats. The atmosphere was pretty good (live band etc) but quite loud. Service was very poor - we got seated and then took a while to order drinks and then another period...More

Not sure, but it is the worst I have been to. It started badly with slow service to acknowledge our reservation and eventually seat us at a table. This was a small warning sign but the menus printed on the placemat and laminated for reuse...More

In the middle of the CBD, you can find a little piece of latin world. After dinner, the staff put the tables on a side and everybody start to dance ;)

Steaks here are always amazing. Cannot fault the food, although it is on the expensive side, I'm happy to pay for quality. Service is appalling. Inexperienced wait staff, seem like they have no idea how to look after a table. I'm torn as to whether...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

The Cuban Place Restaurant in Sydney is recreating the vibrant heydays of 1950s Havana. Globally, our name is widely regarded as the original home of the Mojito Sebastian Escudero our Head Chef has created an enticing menu that features fresh Australian produce with an authentic latin flair. We have researched vintage Cuban cocktail menus from the last 60 years to develop our Cocktail List that features true classic Cuban cocktails. Our extensive rum collection features over 150 different varieties from such countries as Haiti, Guyana Jamaica and of course Cuba. We have authentic Cuban Jazz bands playing live 3 nights a week, with Cuban salsa dancing to accompany.
