My lovely wife and I popped into Fidel's for lunch one day. It's a cool little Cuba Street cafe with a faux Latino vibe and a menu to match. We'd been camping for a few days so were in the mood for a big lunch....More

Went for a much needed recovery breakfast Sunday morning. Everything was amazingly delicious. Coffee was amazing. Cool funky place and all the staff were friendly, attentive and enjoyable. Highly recommend. Thanks guys! Just what we needed.

Ended up going to Fidel's twice,first time with tour group. Everyone ordered something different from pizza, salad, chicken (spicy yum), beef, catch of the day (waiter was local and attractive), etc. Red, white and assorted hue wines available and a selection of beers. I actually...More

We were hungry, it looked busy, so we stopped in for dinner. Ordered fish tacos, fried chicken and vegetarian nachos. Nachos had flavoured tortilla chips, maybe jalapeño? Left feeling very full. Prices were better than others on Cuba st. Clean bathrooms. Small, covered outdoor seating...More

A good solid,safe,staple eatery with a relaxed and easy vibe from patrons and staff alike. Place was humming but meals/drinks were delivered quickly. A messed up order was dealt with well but our waiter.. nothing is a problem here.

Had dinner here tonight ordered pizza , vegan bowl and quesadillas, came quickly and all was delicious, very well priced and we left stuffed. The inside is very eclectic and seems to attract a very mixed group of customers- definitely will return

Still good food, great coffee and good vibe. We actually got a table without a long wait (always full in the weekend) for brunch. Seems that they have reasonable Vegan options for the vegan in our family. Interesting that we weren't asked at the end...More
