Cafe Cuba is a bit of an institution for me already. A good tray of nachos and cold beer are pretty good company after a busy or frustrating day. The only downside was the parking – though, if you combined it with a shopping trip, the responsibility of the pain is at least, shared.
One of the reasons for opening at the PAMA complex, was apparently, the parking. Fabulously easy parking means a bunch can pile in and have a fin lunch or post work meal together. You won’t be alone. Lots of mums and families make the most of the restaurants around the complex in between their shopping – but people watching is always fun. Indeed, if you need anything from one of the shops, you can whizz in while awaiting your order.
The menu is varied and offers something for every kind of diet.
Orders are taken efficiently and drinks came pretty fast as did our food. I’d gone for the beef salad which is strips of mildly spiced and sticky sweet and crunchy beef on a bed of salad which was fresh and crunchy too. I wouldn’t choose this if I was actually watching my weight – the beef is slathered in honey and its not a light bite. My colleague ordered a burger without the bun which she said “was cooked just the right side of rare; tasty bacon / cheese combo with a spicy sauce” though she felt the potato wedges were a little underwhelming.
We spent more in the Body Shop on a showergel each than we did on lunch, and had we not dithered about which of the eateries to go to, would have been there and back from our offices in Lija, within our precious lunch hour.
Our overall impression:
Worth another visit.
