One of the most popular and liveliest bar /restaurants in Nottingham city has to be Revolucion De Cuba. Known for its vibrant Cuban cocktails and cuisine, this large two storey venue offers atmosphere both day and night as I recently discovered when I went along to try out their lunchtime tapas menu…
The interior has always impressed me, transporting you to South America through its colourful décor and the food carries this theme throughout the menu, especially when it comes to the tapas.
As a vegetarian I opted for most of the veggie/vegan dishes on the menu, along with my vegetarian dining partner (my mum!) we made our way through six different tapas dishes, which were manageable portion sizes and each one in turn -delicious and full of flavour.
To take you through our dishes, we shared as standard, Patatas bravas and Nachos which came with all the usual toppings of cheese sauce, sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo salsa and jalapenos- also available as a vegan option and both generous portion sizes. The Chimicurri Corn flavoured with garlic oil, parsley, coriander and a sprinkling of feta added more colour to the table and we were tempted by the Charred Halloumi with peppers, sweet potato and courgette in a rum sauce – yes you heard right! For more added protein we chose the Cajun Cream Mushrooms and the Empanadas with black bean and feta- incredible.
All of the above was washed down with a glass of Prosecco, however their cocktail menu is extensive and extremely creative if this is more your thing, with the Christmas cocktail menu now launched, there is quite literally something for everyone with non-alcoholic mocktail versions also available.
Our service by Chloe was welcoming and efficient and it was, as always, a relaxed and cosy atmosphere where you could relax for a few hours and work on your laptop fuelled by coffee (or cocktails of course), meet colleagues/friends/family for lunch or gather a group together and enjoy an evening meal, drinks and dancing, as they are popular for their live entertainment and DJ nights after dark.
I would highly recommend Revolucion De Cuba’s lunchtime tapas menu, which offers three dishes for just £15 per person, so between two of you, as we did, six dishes would fill the table with variety and flavour and satisfy for a cost-effective price.
