Having not been to Cubanos for quite some time we thought we would try it again. Overall we had a really pleasant evening, the staff are really friendly and helpful. The food itself was very nice, very much home cooked in style and presentation and I mean that in a good way. My Prawns PilPil were tasty as was the burger with chilli, I don't like coleslaw so the kindly substituted it with a side salad. My partners mushroom starter followed by ribs and wings were very good. The bottle Merlot I asked for was not available so they substituted it for a more expensive bottle at the price of the Merlot.

I visited this restaurant for lunch with family, my mum ordered ham egg and chips with bread (barely any chips, and no bread) with that abit of white bait was on the plate which she does not eat and when telling the waitress about it, the waitress picked it off her plate with not even wearing gloves (as if that was acceptable to do so anyway). When saying that is wrong to do that she then laughed. With all the covid going on aswell I just truly think this is unacceptable.
My dad also ordered ham eggs and chips ( meant to come with two eggs which it did not) and ordered toast and high also did not come.
Then afterwards when paying the bill at the end, the waitress then said ‘shall I see if she will knock some off the bill’ considering many things did not turn up! Then in the end all that came off the bill was £3.
My advise would be to take the plate away, get rid of the food that was not suppose to be there regardless of the covid it is unacceptable to lean over someone’s shoulder and pick something from a customers plate with your fingers then laugh about it afterwards.

Good Afternoon Saddier2020, firstly thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, I was upset and shocked to read your comments and as you can see from all of our other reviews this is very out of character, we pride ourselves on excellent service and food, I see on this occasion we have let you down.If you would like to call the restaurant I’d like to welcome you back for a complimentary meal on us to try and restore your faith, thank you for your time.
