Very good food especially the Cuban beef with red beans and rice. My boyfriend ate half of mine! The staff is friendly and the drinks are excellent. Especially if Raul is behind the bar. Makes a killer mojito!

We had the trio with 3 different sandwiches and they were all very good!!! I think the pulled pork one was my favorite! Will definitley be going back when we visit the island... More

I had the Cuban traditional meal with was a pile of well seasoned pulled beef with a side of traditional Cuban bread. My wife had a fish dish which was also well seasoned and she enjoyed it very much. mojitos were good and the staff was very friendly and attentive. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because they... More

My husband and I have been to Isla 7 times in the past few years. With so many wonderful places to eat on the island, we usually like to try different places and have only a few "go to's". Qubano is at the top of the list! Our table of 6 all ordered something different. Everyone raved about their choices... More

My boyfriend swears he has never had a better tasting cuban sandwich. We walked by here 3 or 4 different times waiting for it to open so he could get one. When we were there they had odd hours but in the end it was worth the wait. Go eat here!

I came here with my family during our vacation and we would come to this restaurant again if we make it back to Isla! We all had different meals that were equally delicious but the star of my meal was the side of Hungarian potatoes. They should be a food group! Do yourself a favor and go here for lunch,... More

i believe we were the only guests there for early dinner. Food was fantastic. Eaten there several times previously. We had a spicy shrimp dish and a strip steak. Both prepared nicely.

We visited one night as a group but they were out of ropa vieja. We had drinks then went next door. My wife and I stopped another night and were very impressed. Great service, nice atmosphere on a calm night. Wonderful tapas of stuffed and fried hot peppers, shrimp guacamole chips and small glasses of hot shrimp stock. When I... More

Found this place in a now aging review published in the NYT. Absolutely delicious food that was a welcome find among a sea of scary looking, huckster-driven tourist restaurants on the island. Food quality was outstanding (what the hell are Hungarian potatoes and why are they SO delicious?). Vivian and her minuscule little chihuahua friend Cuba made our quick day... More

Normally one of my favorite places is Qubano. I was so excited to take my friend with me this last Saturday Oct 25 when we arrived I noticed a total remodel of the restaurant but did not think the food would have changed. That was completely wrong. The menu had tapas style food on one side and entrees on the... More
