No regrets!

Whilst I was originally a little daunted coming (I came for the view!) because of the reviews online that were less-than-favourable, I was very, very pleasantly surprised by the level of quality and service they provided at Nueva Cuba, especially Hairul, who was a pleasure to be served by. Their managers were also very attentive and friendly, and it was all-in-all a wonderful experience. The food was not as bad as they made it sound online - we finished both plates! My friend ordered the Lamb Shank and I the Chicken Fajita. We shared the Asparagus with parma ham, which was delicious, and a plate of nachos that disappeared really quickly! The drinks were to die for - one thing you must try is their mojito, which I think sold the most yesterday! Good job, guys!

I was attracted by the permanent crowd outside, but when I went in found out that the crowd is due to cheap beers! Awful food and terrible mojitos, full of non-sense cliches and the worst latino music you could ever imagine. If you want something more than beers, go somewhere else

The problem with any restaurant at Customs House is the serious lack of parking. The nearest parking is via valet at Fullerton Bay Hotel, which costs $12. For the convenience, I usually just valet it.

They need to get better ventilation for this place, everytime a sizzling hotplate dish comes out of the kitchen, the entire restaurant is consumed with tear-inducing wafts of smoke and food accents.

We had:

1) Almendras Bote ($10) was a non-oily but very crispy fresh dory fillet, breaded and deep fried, then topped with almond flakes for texture and a nutty accent

2) Calabacines Y Jamon con Pinones ($14) of grilled zucchini with parma ham and pine nuts was a winning combination of textures and flavours. I loved every bit of this

3) Vieras con Jamon ($16) of scallops, peppers and parma ham sauteed in white wine and accented with saffron for a bright cheery hue. I thought the scallops could have been a little plumper though

4) Ajo Gambas ($16), medium-sized prawns sauteed with olive oil, garlic, chili and white wine. Prawns were fresh, firm without the artificially alkaline-induced crunchiness, and naturally sweet and mild

5) Chorizo Y Queso Relleno de Setas ($14), yummy wild button mushrooms stuffed with spicy chorizo and mozzarella cheese and baked

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
