Description

Buena Visa Social Cafe near Cape Town’s V & A Waterfront is a Cuban themed restaurant and bar. Its authentic decor is eclectic, with a touch of shabby chic this combined with Cuban and Latino beats, Cuban inspired menu and great friendly service combined transport visitors to Havana -the Buena Vista Social Cafe a popular destination for Capetonians, as well as international visitors.

The menu has been designed around traditional Cuban, Central American and Caribbean fare, with a heavy Mediterranean influence too. There is a varied tapas menu, with both hot and cold dishes to choose from, including a meze platter, piquant jalapenos chilli poppers, scrumptious chicken skewers and flambéed chorizo. There is also a wide selection of Mexican favourites on the Comidas menu, all with a Cuban twist, such as the Chicken Churasco, which is grilled chicken breast with guacamole and salsa on traditional toasted Cuban flat bread.

The Buena Vista Social Cafe is also famous for this meat and seafood. The beef is SA grain fed super beef, aged for 21 days. The Lamb Al Ron, a house speciality, is delicious slices of roasted lamb flambéed in a creamy, Cuban rum sauce. The sea fare includes Cuban inspired linefish, fresh from off the boats and an indulgent seafood platter. The piece de resistance is the Cuban paella – a traditional rice dish with a generous selection of seafood, including prawns. The dish is packed with flavours and made to an authentic recipe; the paella is a fabulous feast!

Buena Vista Un Social Club - The owner clearly does not have any idea of how to treat customers. Buena Vista is a pretentious excuse for a lousy mediocre night out. He needs to learn some decorum when talking to customers who have to wait 45 minutes to get a drink, sit down at an available table only to be almost thrown out because he wants to show off his authority by placing some friends at a table you have been sitting at for over an hour, he was threatening and abusive even though no one had bothered to mention in the hour I had been there that the table was reserved. the best part was after his little rant and abusive threats to a women sitting on her own, the people who he placed at my table did not stay long. I will not go back and do not recommend this venue if you want a fun evening out.
