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

Excellent service and good food. We split the Elena Russo sandwich (creative and delicious) and the Hungarian potatoes (good, but maybe a little heavy for the heat on Isla?). Mojitos were delicious. Thought the prices were a little high.

Ordered the fried plantains and yucca as starters. Yucca were super tasty. Unfortunately they were out of tostons. :( (I had read that these were fabulous) Boys... More
