Welcome to Cape to Cuba, Kalk Bay, where the lively atmosphere of South Africa blends with the contagious rhythm of Havana salsa. Imagine this: the Van Vuuren family had a brilliant idea in 1999, just before the year 2000 began, and they thought, why not add a little bit of Cuba to Kalk Bay, South Africa? And thus was born Cape to Cuba, a place so cool you could turn a mojito into a popsicle.

As soon as you walk in, you’re thrust into a colorful, Cuban-inspired fantasy world filled with odd souvenirs, antique posters, and Cuban memorabilia. You’ve entered a time machine and arrived at a funfair in Havana. Before you can say “mojito,” you’ll swing your hips to the Afro-Cuban tunes and sand floors.

Cape to Cuba is a distinctive eatery in Cape Town that provides an authentic Cuban dining experience. The cocktails are excellent, and the service is warm and inviting. The cuisine is a fusion of Cape and Cuban flavors, including well-grilled calamari tapas, ribs, and paella.

The mango and chili mojito are pleasant and flavorful, and the Portuguese bread is a must-try. The breathtaking views of the harbor and the restaurant’s distinctive location—with feet in the sand and passing trains—set it apart. They are strongly suggested for a fantastic evening!
