Had booked a table for 4 of us 2 months previous and emailed to confirm it would be outside. I received no reply. I called the night before and was told we would get a parasol if we came early. However on the day when...I called again I was told we would be sitting inside and someone else had just got a table outside. Very disappointed and ruined our night which we had planned for 2 months.More

We booked a table for their outside garden which is essentially just a few tables in front of the bins with no umbrellas or shielding from the rain. It was raining pretty heavily so was going to leave after a drink but management attempted to...try to charge £60 for the pleasure of sitting on their wet furniture for ten minutes. I know reservations are hard to come by these days but this really is a last resort.More

Dear Jack, Thank you for your review. I saw that you left exactly same review on other platform and copied / pasted it here. The management was trying to charge your card, thinking you showed up and decided to leave without having any drinks /...More

Went along tonight and enjoyed lovely mixture of tapas, prosecco and churros for dessert. Tapas was prawns, chorizo fritters, Lamb, pork belly, patatas bravas, meatballs and bread on the side. Can't fault any of it and the lovely waitress was excellent. Good advice on the...food and service spot on. Can't wait to visit again.More

Came here on a whim and was not disappointed- great selection of tasty tapas dishes. In particular the lamb meatballs, sea bass and haloumi. Service with a smile and definitely felt we were somewhere more exotic than Glasgow ! We will be back

I've not even left the restaurant yet and I need to let everyone know how amazing this place is. Staff so friendly from start to finish, the food packed with flavour and filling. We came through 5pm deal but I will be returning again in...the near future and happily dine without a deal. One of my new favourite restaurants. Thank you very much for your hospitality 💜 my partner and I loved it. Just ordered a jug of sangria so probably best I write the review while still sober 🙈👌.More

We are regulars at Cubatas so visiting in Saturday night it was good to see it back to busy but importantly COVID compliant. Staff as friendly as ever, food delivered to your table as it is made and piping hot. And of course delicious especially...lamb rack and paella exactly as it should be, dry but moist (if you know what I mean!). Be back... of courseMore

Haven’t ever written a bad review before as it would take a lot however the food in here was dreadful. It was quiet yet took at least 45 mins for food to arrive even though we order many dishes and were told it would arrive...as it was cooked nice and fresh. This didn’t happen. The paella was dried and shrivelled up, the two mussels on it were closed and inedible leaving me questioning the rest of the dishes . Very disappointingMore

Greasy nasty food, WORST tapas ever. We actually couldn’t eat it. We were recommended this place but it was dreadful. Shabby decor Staff seemed friendly but I actually had Asda bistro salad as a side to my filthy croquettes. I couldn’t believe it! Please do...not believe other reviews about this place it is a dive and if you like grease, no seasoning and vile food then enjoy.More

Hi there, We don't serve prosecco, but we have Spanish cava. House cava is £20.00 Hopefully this helps. Regards, Cubatas team
