REVIEW: A Weekend Feast at Revolución de Cuba


Since living in Milton Keynes I have to say me and Theo haven’t been that adventurous with our food choices, we have fell in love with The Navigation at Cosgrove and go there nearly on a weekly basis however I was pretty keen to try Revolution De Cuba in the city as I am a big Mexican fan and had been told good things about the food.

I headed to Revolución de Cuba Rum Bar and Cantina last month for a meal out with friends and we dined on incredible Cuban food, drank many mojitos and ate lots of tapas-style dishes. If you didn’t know already Revolución de Cuba is near The Theatre District in Milton Keynes and across from the Snow Zone so it’s really easy to get to and a great meal out before hitting the bars and clubs nearby.



Revolución de Cuba encompasses everything Mexican and brings Havana to the heart of Milton Keynes. Every time I have been there it is always a lively atmosphere with live music, even salsa lessons and the best bit, insanely good cocktails. Rum is their forte and they know their forte well.

When we visited we jumped in a booth and ordered a couple of drinks while we ordered our food. I ordered a Passion Fruit caipirinha whilst Theo ordered a beer on tap, whilst our friends ordered a cocktail each from the summer cocktail menu. The caipirinha was insane with lime and sugar smashed with fresh passion fruit and topped with crushed ice and Velho Barriero Cachaca.


To start we went for a selection of tapas dishes including sticky chicken skewers, roasted chorizo, nachos, pork and chorizo quesadillas and albondigas! The tapas dishes were incredible, all with such different flavours and smells and certainly kicked our evening off.

Then for mains we ordered a few more drinks alongside a dish each. I decided to go for the marinated chicken burrito with guacamole and rice, beans and cheese, whilst Theo decided to go for the shredded pork burrito with pineapple salsa and our friends also went for the same. The meals were tasty with lots of spices and interesting combinations. Overall, the food was amazing! It was tasty, different and every bite was packed full of flavour.

We enjoyed the evening a great deal and the atmosphere in there was great with live music and lots of people getting ready for the evening out. I’d better get a table booked for next weekend…
