Some restaurants take a while to find their feet and bed in.
Others hit the ground running and never look back.
Cubatas Tapas Bar and Restaurant is firmly in the Speedy Gonzalez camp.
Since launching in February, the Elderslie Street restaurant has been making lots of new friends and wowing customers with their fresh take on tapas.
At the time of writing, they are ranked 19th out of nearly 1700 restaurants in Glasgow and they have been reaping fantastic reviews on their 5pm entry.
Today’s Big Deal is a great way to try out Cubatas Tapas Bar and Restaurant and see what all the shouting is about.
Recently opened and fresh as a daisy, Cubatas is eager to please and they promise to deliver tapas as authentic as those in Spain.
Designed for two people, today’s Big Deal is £9.99 for £20 worth of tapas from the a la carte menu at Cubatas.
As well as feasting on delicious tapas, diners can also redeem the £20 spend against drinks.
The offer is available seven days a week and is a great introduction to the Cubatas dishes.
It would be perfect for a night out with friends or family; it’s a good excuse to dodge cooking and it would also be ideal for a bite before heading to a show at the King’s or The Hydro.
With its stripped walls and slinky wooden bar, Cubatas looks very contemporary and that bang-up-to-date vibe continues on their menus.
The a la carte menu has plenty of traditional favourites such as chicken croquettes, Med-flavoured meatballs, tortilla and Serrano ham.
It also features a number of dishes which take a more innovative approach to tapas.
From Japanese-style chicken kebabs to tacos via a German-inspired dish of chicken cooked in beer, the kitchen brigade at Cubatas are always ready to surprise.
Cubatas may be new but it is already attracting enthusiastic reviews on 5pm where it has a healthy combined score of 4.2/5. These are a couple of the most recent:
‘A little gem. Fantastic food, fantastic service and a nice quiet location, ten minute walk from the city.’ Rating 5/5
‘Fantastic place. I was really surprised that I hadn’t heard of this place before. The menu was extensive, the food was fab, drinks lovely and service fantastic. Be back soon!!’ Rating 5/5
