Good place to go for cocktails, it's a bit more of a lively place with music playing. Staff are friendly. Cocktails are 2 4 1 at certain hours in the day. They do serve food but we didn't try this.

Popped in for some cocktails. By-one-get-one-free, which always helps. The Strawberry Daiquiri's are huge and impressive. Lovely setting in the sun in Ocean Village, certainly worth a visit during happy hour!

Cuban is well known to people who work and live in Gibraltar because of their happy hour, especially Friday evenings when it's teeming with people. Proper place to have a nice drink after work, chat up colleagues and enjoy yourself. Can't speak about the food as I've never ordered any but didn't hear anything bad about it either.

We went late afternoon and we were able to experience the early bird cocktails that were very nice. We also had a starter as a snack and it was a really good size and very well priced. The service was great and you got great views over the marina. Would definitely go back!

Our 1st visit to this restaurant and were impressed. Food and service were both excellent. Location is right on the waterfront. Only downside is each bar tries to compete with their music, so they had Latin American playing and the Irish bar opposite had theirs playing and the steakhouse had something else playing...overall a noisy environment and not really conducive...

Went here on my last night in Gib with my family. Unfortunately it was let down by the waitress whos communication skills were poor to say the least. My son and I ordered 2 burgers and asked for them without pickles and tomato and the waitress could not grasp this concept. She insisted on us saying exactly what 5 items... More

Visited this place while in Gibraltar with wife and daughter. By far the worst restaurant of our 2 week trip. Food and service was way below any standard. The two girls working there seemed to have just been randomly grabbed from the street to replace the regular staff as they didn't know anything about the food in the restaurant. My... More

Quick service, good food, and plenty of cocktails on offer. Shared a starter, had mains, and a cocktail each - total cost came to around £35. Did order a 2nd round of cocktails, but after waiting 20 minutes, they didnt arrive, so we asked for the bill and left.

Thank you for your review, we value all feedback we receive. I'm pleased the initial service was quick, you enjoyed the food and the selection of cocktails we offered. However, I'm sorry you didn't receive the second round of cocktails you ordered. We are undergoing some changes at the Cuban, which includes some extra training for the staff, to improve... More
