Mini Quatro

Vivian has a mini trio sampler on her menu, but on the last trip she made me quatro sampler, that included 4 of her great sandwiches. I loved this, I will defiantly be ordering this again. I recommended if you order this, be hungry!

Qubano is a lunch staple while I am on the island. And by staple, I don't mean a 'fall back or default', I mean 'Will I be able to eat there enough times so that I can have all of my favorite dishes?' I guess that's more of a 'must do'. The service is excellent and the restaurant itself is... More

We remembered our meal here from 2010 that we came back again. Don't waste your time - just get the Ropa Vieja. It's delicious. The bartender, (If it's Raul) will entertain you with some hilarious stories. The service was wonderful.

We have eaten here for 6 years when they were by the beach. We always have the Cuban sandwich which is very good. It is served with some type of local root chips. We also tried the Vivian salad for the first time and it was the best salad I can remember on isla. We never miss a trip here

We too do not like to repeat resteraunts as there are so many to choose from, however we went two days in a row as the food was amazing. We didn't even try the Cuban sandwiches.. We had the fish tacos both days. I'm telling you.. They are the best! The homemade sauce (brown) really makes the flavour of the... More

We always say we don't want to go to the same restaurant over and over since there are so many wonderful places to try on Isla Mujeres, but we just can't stay away from Qubano's. The Cuban sandwich was always our favorite, along with Vivian's Salad, but now after trying the mini quatros (four different Cuban sandwiches) I can't decide... More

The server wasn't knowledgeable with gluten free options. I'm always left with a sense of unease when gluten free is requested and the server has a blank stare. That being said, my husband had fried shrimp and I had a Cuban beef dish with beans & rice. It was very tasty but reminded me of chili, which I wasn't expecting.... More

We have been to Isla Mujeres many times. We love the food on the island, but didn't know of Qubano until our most recent trip there. We have had cubanos in Puerto Rico and thought they were great until having them at Qubano...OMG! They are awesome. The sandwiches are large and full of pork. The pork is so tender and... More

This is long overdue but we had Thanksgiving diner here this year and Christmas dinner the year before and Vivian made it incredible each time. Turkey with all the trimmings . Our party was 10-14. It really could not have been better. Keep it in mind for next year!
