Cubana says ?

Cubana is a discovery place. Definitely not just another overpriced chain-run theme bar, Cubana is a genuine Cuban-Latino bar-restaurant with some of London's best fresh, tropical fruit cocktails - and they also offer surprisingly tasty food based on recipes from pre-revolutionary cookbooks prepared from fresh, free-range ingredients at very reasonable prices. Cubana's signature dish is Pollo Criollo - free-range chicken sautéed in fresh orange, garlic, onions and sherry, served with fried plantain and black bean rice. Prime Scotch char-grilled sirloin steak marinated Cuba-style, with the trimmings. There is also a great selection of tapas, including spicy crab cakes with home-made mango / chilli salsa and lush desserts like home-made coconut flan with a scoop of cool coconut ice cream.

This is a good place for a quick drink or pre-theatre snack. We dined during a happy hour also managed to pack a few 2 for 1 cocktails. Atmosphere is pleasant and feels authentic. There is a bit of an echo when the ice is being crushed at the bar so it is quite hard to hear one's companion talking. Food was a bit inconsistent - chicken was good but my steak was very rubbery.

    I’m eating around the world without leaving London and this week I had Cuban food at Cubana. Now I have been to Cuba and one thing that I didn’t think was all that memorable about my visit, was the food. I remember rice and beans and maybe some meat and fried plantains and that&s it. Cubana’s food is a little bit more exciting than that.
    I went on a Thursday night and the place was heaving. Lucky enough I managed to get a table for two with only a 40 minute wait, which we filled with drinking Cuban beers on the terrace outside. They also do amazing cocktails, but I never really think they go well with food.
