Salads! and much much more.

We eat here all the time! We love the salads (Ensalada Vivian and the Cobb) but everything is great - the Cuban sliders, Hungarian potatoes, and her signature tostones. We love talking with Vivian and her incredibly kind and helpful staff. Easily one of the best restaurants in town.

We stopped in at this "cuban" restaurant for lunch. Not knowing what to order we each decided to try the sampler slider plate. It consisted of 4 sliders: smoked turkey with a raspberry jam, pulled pork with carmelized onions,

The food at Qubano brings to mind your Cuban grandmother's cooking. It carries with it the same delicious flavors, smells and, most importantly, tastes! Qubano's is well known for their signature Toston sandwich and it was definitely worth traveling for! I would recommend the restaurant in a heartbeat.

Sandwiches are good, but a little pricey. The owner is a character but a little aloof sometimes. Not one of our best meals on the island and we had four different dishes. The fries and the Hungarian potatoes are both outstanding. Cantaloupe juice was amazing.

I'm from Miami. There is great Cuban Food everywhere. When I arrived at Isla, I thought I'd find seafood and Mexican. I did not expect and was pleasantly surprised to find Great Cuban food. That's what I had a Qubano's. We all ordered something different and I ended up tasting a lot of it. The Cuban Sandwich, the Ropa Vieja... More

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.
