How to get 50% off at Revoluçion de Cuba this month (trust us it's worth it!)
When the sun is shining on a lazy, hazy Sunday afternoon, visiting the city for a bite to eat is the only logical thing to do.
After a full-on few days, I wasn’t really in the mood to cook, but figured there had to be some place to dine without breaking the bank.
I remembered seeing Revoluçion de Cuba’s offer land in my inbox a few days prior, and couldn’t think of a better way to catch a few rays whilst enjoying good food in Derby.
I have dined at Rev de Cuba a fair few times and love the grandeur of the building.
Think high ceilings, opulent vibes and you can almost imagine a waiter magically appearing from around the corner offering a plate of Ferrero Rocher.

Sunday at Rev de Cuba has always been busy for the Bottomless Brunch crowd and it was nice to see the eatery busy.
It’s a good menu covering tapas, such as calamari and beef empanadas, burgers, tacos, sandwiches, burrito bowls and more.
In short, there is something for everyone.
I had Chicken, Rice & Beans.
This is mojo marinated chicken, with zesty rice, black beans, Cuban salad and jerk gravy.
The jerk gravy was outstanding.
Generally speaking, mojo is an orange and lime juice marinade with oregano, cumin and pepper sauce.
I couldn’t taste any of this marinade on the chicken, but the jerk gravy made up for this.
The fillets could have tasted better if they had around four minutes less cooking time, to render them succulent.
I was unsure what constitutes a Cuban salad, so I was intrigued by this side.
Rev de Cuba’s Cuban salad is ribbons of cucumber and sliced radish, which I think could have benefitted from a light vinaigrette dressing and not just a pile of unseasoned vegetables.
Another diner ordered Chicken Fajita Cubana which is mojo marinated chicken, pepperonata, cheese and rum mayo.
This was enjoyed by the diner, and the soft peppers were a good accompaniment to the toasted ciabatta.
Another diner ordered Vegan Fried Chicken Burger, and the seasoned fillet went down well.
Overall, I was happy with the meal.
Considering it was a giant 50% off, and it tasted nice, I would happily go there again.
Yes there are a few simple tweaks kitchen staff can make that would elevate my chicken dish to 'get in my belly now.'
But the service, ambiance and central location makes Derby Rev de Cuba an easy place to be and why I will be returning again.
The offer is part of Rev de Cuba’s extended discount which runs until Friday February 23, 2024.
