We had a really nice evening and the food was superb! We would definitely do it again. Loved the show that started around 11 o'clock.
A very busy afternoon at Alma De Cuba, despite a slight delay in the serving of the desserts this was made up for by the amazing Gospel Singers and a free Prosecco. The food as always was excellent.
Excellent restaurant- good food, excellent service and the inside decor is amazing. We were there for Sunday brunch and the gospel singers were brilliant ....just go!
Excellent food beautiful place and staff really polite and friendly. Live music and where you are seated to eat, you look down on the bar and stage area. Would recommend Alma de Cuba to anyone, luved it
Evening / Day menus needs sorting, you can not order certain food items during certain times of the day, this causes confusion not only for customers but staff too. We where a group of four friends that sadly because of distance and work we only get to meet up a few times a year. We picked Alma De Cuba as my husbands cousin Soo did some of the interior design some years back, unfortunately the service was ropey, although the food was nice and we where given 4 glass,s of Prosecco and offered some money off the bill. In slight defence of Alma De Cuba it was a busy Sunday evening with most tables being in use for customers. I,d still go back and try again as its a wonderful building and as I said when the food did arrive it was nice.
We love Alma De Cuba but we were disappointed as the website showed it was an open-mic nite but it wasn't! Also showed 3 courses for £20 and it wasn't! However there was 50% off food offer on so that was fine. One of us is vegetarian and she chose the Ocra curry but she said it was a bit tasteless. I had the mixed hanging kebab with plantain chips...it was lovely especially the chips...they were absolutly delicious. The staff were very helpful and the surrounding are amazing so overall we had a great time! They just need to keep the website up to date!
First time dining at Alma de Cuba, having heard lots of good things I've wanted to go for a while. In the end the setting was great, good atmosphere and the cocktails we tried were nice. However, food was mixed. The starter of sticky honey chicken wings were nice but some of smallest chicken wings ive seen and debatable at the cost of £6.50. Unfortunately they had no spatchcock so my first choice of main was not available and instead opted for the hanging chicken, again was nice but portion size to cost is debatable in my personal opinion. The best course was dessert though, the salted caramel tart was amazing and definitely worth the cost. Overall Alma de Cuba is definitely worth coming to try for a nice meal but if you have a big appetite maybe order extra. Ill definitely be visiting again to hopefully try somethinh different and improve my opinion further
Beautiful decor. Friendly staff. Excellent service. Limited menu but food was great. Nicely presented, big enough portions and cooked well. Only criticism which I understand but was slightly frustrating was that we were there celebrating my daughters graduation with the whole family and when wishing to enter the bar downstairs for a cocktail before leaving my youngest was not allowed in and therefore none of us could go in! It was still early and she would have sat with nothing alcoholic with her parents and elder sisters...disappointing as we all had to leave when we wanted to experience the bar atmosphere for a while...
Doors opened exactly at 12pm, advised to go upstairs for our booked table. No staff member at desk to greet our party, found a table ourselves then staff appeared to direct us to our reserved table. Occasion was my wife’s birthday especially booked 12-2pm for a celebratory meal & to listen to Gospel Singers. Performance began approximately 12.30 but only lasted about 20 minutes & that was it! We left at 2.30pm having listened to recorded music for the remainder of the time. Food was very good, thoroughly enjoyed by our party. Table service excellent, with friendly & attentive staff.
I had never been to the Alma de Cuba before and wanted somewhere special to take our Australian Visitors.. What an amazing experience we were greeted and shown to our table and looked after throughout our time there. The food was great and service second to none, but what took us by surprise were the gospel singers, fantastic. Our guests were so stunned by the whole experience and never stopped talking about it all evening. Thank you for a special meal.
