This was the first place we visited during our stay in palolem. We found the food pleasant, a paneer kebab and aloo gobi with roti and jeera rice. The beers were cold and the view was lovely. There is a series of clean beanbag type seats which is very good for relaxing and people watching with a cold one.

I had a warm vegetarian dish with fruits on it, naan and a banana lassi, it tasted good. There are many tables and service is not the fastest in town.

Great place to eat right on the beach. Fresh fish cooked on the grill, pick your own. Staff are friendly and attentive.

There are 3 Cubas in the area (Palolem, Patnem, Agonda) all are very consistent and reliable. The menu is very reasonable, the food is great, the staff and friendly and service is fast (which really isn't the case in many other restaurants).

We had a lovely time at this place. Perfect setting, no disturbances, and very good freshly cooked food. What else do one need? We found it one of the best maintained places at Palolem beach

We went to each of the Cuba restaurants . The view from each is great and they both offer card facilities. However the food and service was much nicer at patnem. The service at palolem was a little rude and very difficult to get attention even though they weren't busy. Visit the patnem restaurant and it's one of the few... More

Had dinner at Cuba and would say its definitely worth a visit while you are in Agonda. They have good fresh seafood and a variety of cuisines (including a bit of local Goan) and also a reasonably well stocked bar. Get a beachside table, kick off your shoes and have a relaxed meal. We were there for dinner and they... More

Enjoyed dinner, the atmosphere and the music. Sitting on the beach, watching the sunset on the bean bags before dinner arrived. So relaxing.

It looked like a happening place with nice music and a lively crowd so we dropped in for drinks and snacks. There were some performers doing some acts in front on the beach too. We didn't eat much so can't comment on the food, but the rest was nice. I'd visit again and try some food.

We had our best meal of Goa here. Since we are Jains, we had certain preferences and they took perfect care of that and made really yummy Indian cuisine. We also tried a few appetizers which were also made really well. The cocktails they made were just perfect. So when in Palolem do visit this place for food and amazing... More

Bang in the middle of the beach, the Café is the ideal meeting hub that is the darling of all guidebooks. Along with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the exciting place provides a breathtaking view of a pair of rocky crags at either end of the beach. It is also the ideal location to watch Palolem’s legendary sunsets.
