A few weeks ago after work I went for a little evening out and girlie catch up with another Milton Keynes blogger, Hazel.  Here’s my review of our amazing Cuban meal at cocktail bar and restaurant Revolucion De Cuba in Milton Keynes.  We’d been once before and we can always count on it for a fun evening with a great atmosphere.
