Amazing lunch outside! We had the Cuban sandwich and chicken with beans and rice. Everything was seasoned perfectly and authentic Cuban cuisine. Our server was very attentive and friendly, and helpful. I loved mojito and can’t wait to go back to this spot again during...our trip.More

Next step is going to Cuba itself though we must warn you that because of the embargo there might be an issue with the flavours as they lack lots of things there. We are thrilled that you had a good time with us. We all...More

Slightly hidden location, nothing special here. Very dirty :/ Mojito was okay but there's better elsewhere I guess. I don't understand the reviews, I must have missed something... I don't recommend this place :(

Really good fun evening out. We booked a table - wise move as it was busy. Both of us had a cocktail - best mojito I've had in a long time - really minty. We are vegetarian so we both had the vegetarian bean curry....Delicious. Will happily return there next year.More

With a group of 4 friends looking for lunch, we stumbled across this unassuming little restaurant, tucked away in a little side street. The blackboard menu promised good value food full of Caribbean flavours, and we weren’t disappointed, except for the warning that Creole prawns...needed to be ordered a day in advance. Having enjoyed a great lunch on the terrace, washed down by an excellent house wine, we obviously had to return. We did so with the rest of our group for our last lunch of our Madeira trip, and the prawns, reserved a day ahead by email were exceptionally good! Highly recommended as an alternative to the usual Madeira restaurant fare!More

So good we couldn’t resist going back a second time for happy hour! We had both the beef and pork dishes which were both amazingly tasty and the mojitos were the best we’ve ever had. Staff were all so lovely and welcoming and the outdoor...seating is the perfect place to sit and people watch after a busy day.More

Good Cuban food at reasonable prices. Annoying that the credit card machine and the waiter wanted to charge the balance in the currency of my home country. If you don't insist on Euros, the conversion rate adds 10% more in charges. Always insist on using...the local currency for credit/debit card transactions. It will save you lots of money.More
