This big, airy bar and restaurant is full of colourful, earthy tones and Mexican-style tiles. It manages to pull of an authentic, yet stylish look, with Cuban music plink plonking in the background and a chic crowd. The food is loosely based on a Latin American format, such as chicken enchiladas or Cuban paella, though the range of burgers and sandwiches are a bit more Western than you might expect. While the tapas – like Iberico Ham croquettes, patatas bravas or roasted chorizo – are definitely from the wrong continent. The shredded pork burrito is enormous, though you may have to hunt through a lot of dry rice to find the meat; however, the tortilla chips and refried beans which come on the side, as well as a calamari starter, show some promise. That said, Revolucion de Cuba may be more the type of place to show off your Cuban moves over a rum cocktail or four than somewhere to seek out serious South American cuisine.
