We went to each of the Cuba restaurants . The view from each is great and they both offer card facilities. However the food and service was much nicer at patnem. The service at palolem was a little rude and very difficult to get attention even though they weren't busy. Visit the patnem restaurant and it's one of the few... More

Had dinner at Cuba and would say its definitely worth a visit while you are in Agonda. They have good fresh seafood and a variety of cuisines (including a bit of local Goan) and also a reasonably well stocked bar. Get a beachside table, kick off your shoes and have a relaxed meal. We were there for dinner and they... More

Enjoyed dinner, the atmosphere and the music. Sitting on the beach, watching the sunset on the bean bags before dinner arrived. So relaxing.

It looked like a happening place with nice music and a lively crowd so we dropped in for drinks and snacks. There were some performers doing some acts in front on the beach too. We didn't eat much so can't comment on the food, but the rest was nice. I'd visit again and try some food.

We had our best meal of Goa here. Since we are Jains, we had certain preferences and they took perfect care of that and made really yummy Indian cuisine. We also tried a few appetizers which were also made really well. The cocktails they made were just perfect. So when in Palolem do visit this place for food and amazing... More

Its located right on the beach and good beach view. Cuba has Indian and continental food options. The taste of food is good and rates are reasonable.

We visited this place twice, once for dinner and another time for lunch. Ambience : The cafe overlooks the sea and they have candlelight setup at each table at night. Seafood : My husband tried the prawn curry. He said the curry was great but prawns weren't frozen/cooked well. Mexican : I decided to experiment with Mexican which was a... More

Menu very extensive so never explored it all. Enjoyed Indian and fresh fish dishes we with beers most nights of our vacation. Fellow dinners were fans of their 2 for 1 drink specials. Service can be spotty so be sure to follow up with waiter if they forgot something.

Bang in the middle of the beach, the Café is the ideal meeting hub that is the darling of all guidebooks. Along with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the exciting place provides a breathtaking view of a pair of rocky crags at either end of the beach. It is also the ideal location to watch Palolem’s legendary sunsets.
