Creators of Coco Cubano, Tony and Avril Melhem, fell in love with Cuba’s electric and indulgent culture, and decided to bring to Australia a taste of that very same culture which spawned the Mojito, the Salsa, Buena Vista Social Club and Havana Club Rum.
Cuba is a nation steeped with a unique mix of history and beauty. From the hedonistic times of the 20’s when it became a renowned playground for the rich and famous; an international destination for fun, frivolity, cocktails and exotic beaches, to the revolución in the 50’s which brought with it an embargo and saw Cuba become a mysterious island locked in time.
Coco Cubano invites you to experience the best of both worlds, an eclectic vintage setting with the vibrancy of Cuba in its heyday; a time of extravagance, indulgence and abundance, a place to indulge in all things fun, sun, food and drink.
On the surface Australia and Cuba are two vastly different ‘islands’, but there are some striking similarities they share; an abundance of sunshine, a tropical climate, a strong connection to the sea and producers of sugar cane & rum.
Inspired by two water-loving cocktail-sipping cultures, Coco Cubano offers sunshine inspired Cuban flavours; an exotic fusion of Cuban & Australian flavours with a vibrant atmosphere perfect for any fiesta! From Havana streets to tropical treats there’s something to suit any craving with a perfect mix of share plates, fresh salads, generous mains & indulgent desserts.
From early morning espresso to moonlight mojitos & everything in between, a taste of exotic Cuba can be experienced throughout the menu. Whether it’s a classic Cuban street sandwich, a rich cup of El Presidente coffee with our custom Havana Roast blend, decadent Couverture single origin chocolate, or the list of celebrated Cuban rum and cocktails.
Enjoy all day dining & beautiful cocktails til late, every day of the week.
Viva la vida!
