Went to the Cuban place for a few birthday drinks. We had to go downstairs to the rnb section as the upstairs was completely full. The downstairs section had limited cocktail selection and a bit overpriced. I ordered a mojito which it didn’t taste like...More

We went here for dinner with a 50% discount voucher obtained through a 3rd party site. The food is ok, but a little on the pricey side and we would not have come if we didn't have the 50% off voucher. There were more negatives...More

The place opened at 5 pm and had a happy hour with $8 mojitos, so we had a few of those whilst the place quickly filled up. There was music in the background and sometimes there is a band

Went here for dinner with a Groupon voucher but i doubt that the food or service would be any better at full price. We saw dishes around us and they looked pretty much the same, just larger servings. Overall, food was very unexciting, not tasty...More

I can't comment on the food because I didn't eat here... Live band provided a fantastic atmosphere. Bartenders were friendly and their mojitos delicious. Dancing was fun! Dance partners friendly. Cleanliness of the toilets could have been better.

If you are going there for food don’t even think that’s the Cuban taste so bad like there...maybe the alcohol is good and a good bands (I didn’t stay for this) but the food was terrible

We attended this restaurant last minute as we were seeing a show at the state theatre. The hostess was friendly, accommodating and we were seated quickly even without a booking. The restaurant itself is quirky in an old Sydney Bar type setting. We were seated...More

Great spot for drinks, food, and atmosphere! Reasonably priced for a themed restaurant and comes with great service.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

The Cuban Place Restaurant in Sydney is recreating the vibrant heydays of 1950s Havana. Globally, our name is widely regarded as the original home of the Mojito Sebastian Escudero our Head Chef has created an enticing menu that features fresh Australian produce with an authentic latin flair. We have researched vintage Cuban cocktail menus from the last 60 years to develop our Cocktail List that features true classic Cuban cocktails. Our extensive rum collection features over 150 different varieties from such countries as Haiti, Guyana Jamaica and of course Cuba. We have authentic Cuban Jazz bands playing live 3 nights a week, with Cuban salsa dancing to accompany.
