In a word, wow! We read about Qubano on TA, and decided to give it a try. We both went for the Cuban sandwich, which was delicious! And the Hungarian potatoes were really good as well. The food was so good that we decided to give it another go, and met again with Vivian the very next day. We had... More

Qubano is my favorite place to eat lunch on the island. The mojitos are tasty, can't go wrong with any of the sandwiches, papas fritas and fried yucca are a must, and Vivian is awesome. We go two or three times a week when we are here.

We stumbled into this establishment by accident, but are so glad we did. The owner is a very frank woman, but she is very hospitable and obviously takes pride in her restaurant. We had the sampler of four mini sandwiches which included pulled pork, a Cuban, chicken between fried plantains (tostones), and The Elena. The Elena is a taste sensation,... More

Incredible Cuban inspired cuisine and fantastic Mojitos. This is a must visit, come to Isla Mujeres and visit Qubano. Our large party enjoyed the hospitality and excellent service. Right in the middle of town, close to everything.

Ingenious but tasty. An amazing Cuban sandwich on delicious tostones instead of bread. An alternative that adds even more flavor to the meal. The mojitos were tasty but not too sweet, very refreshing. If you're indecisive order the trio. The service was quick, clean, all the water was bottled, the prices were fair and the walk to the beach afterwards... More

Best food I have had ever! A must have for any traveler to this beautiful island. I might just come back to isla to eat here. The little dog named Cuban sat on my lap the whole meal.

Every time I visit Isla I come to Qubano's...it's usually my first and last stop (and several in between). I should probably be embarrassed to say that I've literally gone 3 days in a row now, but I can't help myself! Vivian's food is SO GOOD! I recommend the Cuban sandwich, the Elena Russ sandwich, the Hungarian potatoes (to die... More

The sandwich was outstanding and very satisfying with the sweet potato chips. I ordered a margarita and it was the stronger than anything else I had on the island.

Returning from a day at Playa Norte, we were strolling along Hidalgo browsing for a nice shell, when we came upon the Qubano restaurant and were offered a streetside table to sit and cool down. Not a bad idea as the mojitos we ordered were perfectly made with brown sugar and Havana Club rum. Then just for a bite we... More
