First visit to Cubatas and
I’m now asking myself why I haven’t been before?!? A little off the beaten track but now that I’ve been I’ll
Certainly be back. Service from Anna was great. Food was surprisingly good and 3 tapas each was certainly enough.
Great find.

Initially I found the restaurant to be a bit dark and there was a draught from the door when it was opened to admit other guests.
But once settled we forgot about these aspects.
Food & service was excellent and we'll definitely be back.
I still feel the restaurant could be a bit brighter and the ladies toilet is in need of decoration but otherwise all good

Food in general was good, was really disappointed with the bread starter though with oil/balsamic. Came out as a sliced loaf you'd buy from the supermarket, not what you'd expect. The rest of the food was as a remembered it, really good and well cooked. Maybe they had just ran out of bread (hope that was the case anyway). Was fairly quiet because it was January but still had atmosphere and its a nice place to be. Staff were really good. Just sort the bread starter or take it off the menu. Paying £3 for atisan bread from "Freedom Bakery" would've been fine. £3 for 2 slices of bread from a 60p multiseed loaf isn't!!

When we attended Cubatas on Saturday we were left utterly disappointed. For the table we ordered 6 small plates and three portions of veggie pallea. As we order the waitress informed us that they had big pans and would do two portions in one big pan rather than three small dishes. Which was fine by us. When our food arrived a big pan of pallea came so we double checked to make sure the pan was two portions and not the three portions. The waitress went to check with the kitchen and confirmed the big pan was two portions not three and the third would be out in a couple of minutes.

We started eating but after a few minutes checked again that the third pallea was on its way as one member of our party wasn’t eating anything else.. again we were told that it would only be a few minutes... 10 minutes pass and most everyone else at the table is almost finished... we asked again and were told it was just coming... a few minutes later we ask again only to be told the big on was actually the three portions!

One of our party had now not eaten and what was left of the pallea in the big pan was now cold. The manager was brought over who told us that the waitress was new and that they don’t usually serve three portions in a big pan but the kitchen had made an exception.

Being told this 30 minutes after our food first arrived was not acceptable. We were not offered anything, we did refuse to pay for the third portion of pallea as a member of our party hadn’t eaten.

We sat for 1 hour 45 mins before any food hit our table!!
We were totally forgot about as we were put at a table in a dark corner.
I imagine the experience would have been different if we had been sat in the main restaurant instead of the corner out the way.
Staff were pleasant enough and brought me a free glass of wine as an a apology (we never complained) once she noticed we hadn’t been served after a lengthy wait.
Then the food was average nothing to shout about
Very disappointed in the paella it was pretty tasteless and very wet!!
I wouldn’t go back

Visited on a Friday night and while there was a but of atmosphere it felt more like a week night. The restaurant was slightly chilly.
Service was slow and staff weren’t very knowledgable. Great choice of menu and some the dishes were fantastic - lamb rack, stuffed peppers but some were just ok. Garlic prawns were served in a mini pan on a cold wet wooden slab so they cooled down very quickly. Reasonable prices and the £20 deal was good value. I don’t think I would go back again.

We enjoyed a meal, when it came. It was a full hour before we got the first of our tapas after ordering. They were then delivered slowly for the next hour. One of our party didnt get her last tapas as the waitress had forgotten it. Food was beautiful and the deal was good 3 for £20 with 2 drinks was good value.

Croquetas were very good, and lamb meatballs were delicious. Seafood paella was pretty good, not exceptional, but inexpensive. Wine list is short but has some good choices; we enjoyed a bottle of Ribera del Duero. Overall a very pleasant dining experience.

Me and my friend went for the first time on Friday night and can't fault the place at all. Every single thing we ordered tasted amazing! And we have both been to several tapas in Glasgow but we will be recommending cubatas to everyone! Staff were very polite and the place is small but lovely inside! Will be back very soon! Also - the £20pp deal was brilliant value for money! Cocktails were great!

Fabulous food at Cubatas. This is our 2nd visit when in Glasgow. Only disappointment was we were aiming for lunch and website and menu outside stated they were open at lunch times which is apparently not the case. However glad that we were able to rearrange our schedule and booked for the evening. Well worth the wait with options for me as a vegetarian and my meat eating husband raved about the pork cheeks!

Food was ok, portion sizes were pretty small, even for tapas. Had to wait ages for our food to come out. Asked twice for a napkin (wasn't one in the table when we sat down) they never actually bought me one. Had to ask for additional cutlery. Attention to detail from the staff wasn't great. Overall, I've had better tapas in Glasgow.
