Revolución de Cuba restaurant review

Main tables at Revolución de Cuba

For business travellers looking for some vivacity and a stiff drink, Revolución de Cuba in Glasgow will make you feel like dusting off your dancing shoes

On a cold Glasgow night, how pleasing to find the intoxicating warmth of old Havana. This new city centre bar and restaurant, the latest addition to the Revolución de Cuba chain, is huge, all vibrantly coloured tiles, cheery staff and a live band. The extensive cocktail menu features a raft of mojitos and caipirinhas as well as the classic Cuba libra. Director began with a lychee mojito with grapefruit and blackberry – just the ticket for shaking off those Scottish winter blues – and shared a few tapas plates. The pick was the pork belly skewers – slow-roasted and served with a spicy pico de gallo sauce. This is a chain restaurant, more suited to fun nights out than sophisticated dining, but the chefs know their stuff. We finished with a chocolatey fondue with strawberries and mango and – oh, go on then – just one more mojito before again stepping into the damp Glasgow night.
