Great cuban cuisine, and really nice owner. He was very attentive and gave great service. The food was spectacular, especially the ropa vieja and cuban sandwhich. Very accommodating for the kids as well. Definitely highly recommended!

Very good food, eat right on the plaza. Service was great and the owner is very friendly and it is apparent that she loves what she does!

And while that's true, it's the wonderful and creative food here - along with the one-and-only Vivian - which makes Qubano truly shine! (And please don't come here only wanting to use the bathrooms...or use the bathrooms without eating here). Of course you wouldn't think of that simply because Qubano is one of the very best places to eat while... More

We stopped into Qubano on the recommendation of the owner of Villa Adioso, and it did not disappoint! We actually ordered food to go, and they were very accommodating. Everything we had was yummy, and I think the combination of the 3 different sliders was everybody's favorite! Definitely recommend.

This is another one of our Must Stops while visiting Isla! The watermelon water is so refreshing, I could eat a whole 'yucca frita with mojo' plate, we just discovered the hungarian potato appetizer and it's also a must, and our old time faves to share are the Vivian Salad with lettuce, chick peas, other delicious veggies, and a fried...

Lunch might have included tip. No way to know Bc didn't get bill. Vivian just told us the amount. Ask! Otherwise, food was FABULOUS. I don't know authentic Cuban food but the Cuban sandwich was awesome and the Toston sandwich was great with the sweet plantain and the grilled onions balancing very nicely. Get the Hungarian potatoes. They were the... More

I have been to Qubano over a dozen times. It is one of my favorite restaurants on Isla. Vivian is one of a kind and always a great person to have a conversation with. She truly cares about her customers from the moment they sit down to her delivering every meal personally to each customer. The menu is to die... More
