Decor is amazing, it makes you feel like you're in Cuba. Service warm and friendly. Cuisine is divine. We had a very pleasant experience here. Well worth a visit if in Cape Town

We popped in for Mojitos in our way out for dinner. What an amazing vibe - quirky, funky decor. Just love it. And the Mojitos were the best I’ve had in a while. Can’t wait to come back for a meal.

Cape to Cuba was created by the van Vuuren family way back in 1999 and going from strength to strength! Nominated as one of the 100 coolest restaurants on the planet with our unique décor, ambience, sandbar & whale watching from our deck and bar! We made the first Mojito in this country and have sold close to 4 million to date, and are known for our legendary cocktails. Our line fish is served fresh from the harbour daily. One of our specialties is a chocolate chilli fillet steak, a favorite with our regulars for years. We sell cigars, panama hats, shirts and skirts from the island. Live music every Sunday 4 to 7 in our beach bar. For parties and functions we offer fabulous platters or individual tapas & in the restaurant special set menus.
