The Latin-inspired bar, Revolucion de Cuba, is a popular nightlife spot in Cardiff. My regular followers are probably aware of my rum obsession, especially the dark and spiced varieties. So, when I heard you can have a bottomless brunch in a rum bar, I knew where I was heading.
The bottomless brunch craze that has swept across Cardiff is undoubtedly one that is popular with me. As I’ve reached my 30’s, it is more difficult to plan time with friends around their family and all of our work commitments. A boozy afternoon is much easier than a night on the tiles. Revs de Cuba is like going to Havana, without the airfare.
What drinks are included?
When we arrived, we were given a Mimosa each, to kick start the festivities. What I like about the bottomless brunch at Revolucion de Cuba in Cardiff was the choice of drinks. Usually, it is all about the Prosecco, and even though this is still a choice you can also pick from a pint of Mahou, a Strawberry Daiquiri, a Bloody Mary (does anyone actually like these?!), Aperol Spritz, Spanish Shandy or tea, coffee or a soft drink.
“We keep the drinks coming, just say the word.” This is the motto of the brunch, as soon as you’ve emptied your glass, they will bring you another one. Plus, this is over two hours – from when you sit down. So, there is plenty of time to enjoy your drinks without having to binge through them. You can also change your drink order, you can choose from the list throughout the brunch.
(I should probably mention that we visited on a rugby international day, so all of our drinks were served in plastics.)
Revs de Cuba Cardiff Bottomless Brunch Menu
The bottomless brunch is served between 11am – 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The menu features authentic Spanish, Mexican and South American brunch dishes. As a self-confessed food snob, I was not expecting much. I can honestly say I was surprised, the food was hot, tasty and full of flavour. Included in the price is bruschettas on arrival, one with parma ham and the other was with avocado, plus one dish off the menu. You can choose to have more, as well as side dishes and desserts. There are plenty of choices for meat-eaters, vegetarians and vegans too.
I choose the Cuban Benedict; toasted sourdough with a light and zingy mustard spread, topped with pulled pork, a poached egg, hollandaise sauce and sweet smokey paprika. My partner opted for Chorizo Hash; crispy potatoes, chorizo, peppers and Manchego cheese sauce, topped with a fried egg and spring onions. We also enjoyed a side of Patatas Bravas.
The menu is quite extensive, for brunch, and even the fussiest of eaters could find something to eat. My mother hates spicy food, but she could have been satisfied with a Full Grilled Breakfast with streaky bacon, smoked sausage, tomato, mushrooms, fried egg and toast. When I go again, I want to try the Sweetcorn Fritters; homemade sweetcorn fritters served with guacamole, mango and chilli dressing, topped with a fried egg.
Is it really expensive? Is it worth the money?
Prices start from £20 per person, for the bottomless brunch. We sat down at 12pm, and it cost us £25 each. Absolute bargain! As previously mentioned, it includes one food dish and unlimited drinks from the selection for up to two hours.
It is effortless to book, you can do this online, on the phone or by email. However, I did find it hard to find the bottomless brunch menu on the website. All the others are listed, and you can read the variety of dishes and all that’s included.
