Great evening. The food was tasty with some great choices and combination of flavours. Service was informed and attentive. Favourite dishes octopus as starter, chilli rubbed scallops with black rice. Wine was good a little expensive for a decent bottle. Would definitely go back.

Great food, service and atmosphere. The decor is really interesting. I would highly recommend the calamari salad starter and the confit duck main dish.

My husband and I came here for his birthday meal. I requested a nice table in the restaurant since it was a meal for a special occasion, but we were seated on a table which didn't seem particularly special, so I requested to move to a booth table which had more privacy. The waiter was happy to move us and... More

I went to Asia de cuba with a group of friends on New Years day. We decided to go for the set 3 course menu, which included a mini mojito. Firstly the positives. The restaurant is located in the heart of Covent Garden in a fantastically stylish hotel. I have eaten here before, some years ago, and noted that the... More

We were so excited to go here for lunch. The food was definitely tasty and powerfully flavoured and the service friendly. The cocktails were okay. The ceviche were the stars for us. Delete them from the menu and what is left feels a bit like a reasonably good chain with a concept which may not have a very long shelf... More

Description
For global travellers with a cultured palate and a love of variety, Asia de Cuba is a destination restaurant with a must-taste fusion philosophy. The iconic St Martins Lane eatery has been newly renovated and now offers an updated menu and whimsical, enchanting interior design. Cuban-born executive concept chef Luis Pous enhances Jeffrey Chodorow's original culinary vision with experimental combinations and a new twist on old favourites. Inspired by the cultural synthesis of old Havana's Chinatown, Pous interprets Asian-influenced Cuban fare for a modern crowd and a discerning palate. The new Asia de Cuba retains the same authentic preparations, tropical accents, and sharing-style presentation loved by guests and food critics alike, now enhanced with a creative new menu and a chic new dining sanctuary. Fresh ingredients, handcrafted dishes, and eye-catching interiors make for an unforgettable dining experience with surprising cultural flavours. Bottomless Brunch runs from Friday to Sunday, with live music on a Saturday.
