Bottomless Brunch at Revolución de Cuba [AD – PR Meal]

a pink drinks menu

I love brunch. It’s probably my favourite meal, although it’s one I don’t nearly have enough because you have to go out for it. I’d never brunch at home. I recently had a lovely brunch at Revolución de Cuba [AD – PR Meal] with the girls I used to work with. It was so much fun and nice to catch up over bottomless (in my case, boozeless) drinks and some tasty food.

Known for their Cuban tapas, colourful cocktails, and fun vibes, we visited the Milton Keynes restaurant, which is in the Theatre District – but there are 18 restaurants up and down the UK.

On arrival, we found leis on the back of our seats, and I got straight into the spirit and put mine on… perhaps not quite as high in spirits at the table next to us, who looked as though they’d been having a good time for a few hours! There weren’t too many other tables occupied as we arrived, but it definitely got busier throughout the course of the afternoon.

We began with Buck’s Fizz – or in my case, orange juice – with a bottle of fizz and a carafe of OJ on the table to enjoy at leisure, while we perused the menu. We had pre-ordered our food, but there was the matter of which cocktail (or mocktail) to try first. There are three options for the bottomless brunch: boozeless (£20pp), standard (£32.50pp) and premium (£40pp) – the only difference is the choice of drinks on offer and the food menu is exactly the same, whichever package you choose. You can also mix and match between the drinks on offer (within your package) which is nice, so you’re not restricted to drinking the same thing.

With three boozeless cocktails on the menu, I tried them all – and my favourite was the pineapple daiquiri (made with caleño, pineapple, lime, and sugar). It was so refreshing and surprisingly not too sweet – it slipped down very easily. The mojito tasted much like it’s usually rum-filled counterpart – with the hints of lime and mint predominant – and the pornstar martini looked good (but I definitely prefer mine with a prosecco chaser).

quesadillas and diced potato on a plate

To eat, I originally ordered the chorizo hash, but as one of the group couldn’t make it (and we had suggested ordering different dishes to try a bit of everything), I asked to have her chicken quesadillas instead. It was a great choice though – they were so dreamy! Four tortillas with a side of patatas bravas was more than enough. The chicken was nicely seasoned, each tortilla was well-filled, and I didn’t find it overly spicy. I’d definitely order the dish again and recommend it as a brunch option (although I think it’s on the main menu too). There were a few options on the menu, with a sweet choice too… so you’re bound to find something you like. There’s also a gluten-free menu, which you can see on request… and the staff were very hot on allergies, bringing over a QR code to scan to see allergens and ingredients in all dishes.

We were supposed to start with tortilla chips and salsa, but these were brought over during the meal… it just meant we continued snacking while sinking cocktails once we’d finished and the plates were taken away! We were supposed to have some savoury (or spicy) popcorn too on arrival, and that never materialised – a shame.

The staff were attentive in asking if we’d like more drinks as soon as our glasses were empty, but then they took a while to come to the table. Some places are quite strict on 90 minutes or 2 hours of drinks, but they were definitely more lenient at Revolución de Cuba – perhaps for that reason. As my drinks were essentially juice, I was drinking them much faster than the rest of the girls – so was supplementing it with the juice and water on the table.

As I said, it wasn’t overly busy, but I can imagine when it is, there’s a real party or carnival atmosphere – particularly in the evenings. I loved that there was a photobooth next to the bar too, although we didn’t use it – such a cool touch.

The tapas and sharing menus look good, and I’d return for brunch again… there’s even an afternoon tea menu which I’m intrigued by – you all know how much I love an afternoon tea! For a first visit, I wasn’t disappointed – ans it was nice catching up with friends. We just shouldn’t leave it so long next time!

[AD – PR Meal] – Revolución de Cuba invited us to try the new brunch menu, so the food and drink was free. But thoughts and images are 100% my own.
