this was the first place Wendy and I visited. Cocktail hour was brilliant and was a must do for the rest of our visit. This place is a must visit for food and drink. Watch out for the card tricks from the Venezuelan medically trained bar tender.

We took a chance on the Cuban as we needed a venue for lunch for a group of 20 netballers. So glad we did, menu suited their varied dietary needs! Even better our host could not have been more helpful, we went away wanting to return and knowing if we did we would receive a warm welcome.

Had a lovely meal in here. The chef even came out and discussed the dishes with us. The only problem was that we waited a very long time for each course.

The Cuban is by far one of the best venues in Gibraltar in my opinion. Every time I visit I always make sure I have time for a few drinks here. Great lively atmosphere, good quality drinks and reasonably priced to boot. The mojitos are definitely worth checking out.

Beautiful place to sit with a view and have a loveky meal, but like most places i went I noticed the was the same as what I'd have in London, there was the odd "something different and exciting" clean and friendly. Good service

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.

Thank Stefan T
