Once I told my group that we were going to get a full Cuban experience they were thrilled and excited. After we left, well, I had to apologize just a little. The location was great. The staff were charming. The music playing in the background was nice. However, the food truly left us wanting for more in a few ways.... More

I have no complaints! We were served by the owner, an incredibly awesome guy. Dinner was delicious; I highly recommend the 'ropa vieja' (marinated shredded beef). Also, do NOT skip out on dessert; the coconut pudding is amazing!

Excellent experience. Food was simple but great. Service was fast and polite. Prices were very reasonable. The chef (owner?) greeted us in Spanish and after preparing our lunch, checked to see if all was good. Lunch was flavorful and filling. Will definitely go back and recommend to others. This is a hidden gem among small independent restaurants.

~ Went to this restaurant for the first time for Dinner. The appetizers were good and the Red Snapper was great! They make awesome Mojitos and other Cuban drinks. The restaurant has a small outdoor patio. Quite often they offer live Cuban music. If you're in Kelowna make sure you come here for something different.

We are happy anytime one of our customers have a great time at our establishment. Our Mojitos are the best way to treat the heat from the Okanagan. More

While on a recent trip to Kelowna, my husband and I came across this restaurant and ended up having three meals here! We had breakfast two mornings in a row each time having the breakfast sandwich and a bagel with cream cheese and a side of bacon. All of the food was very reasonably priced and the coffee (both regular... More

Thank you so much for the suggestion. We are working in our new menu, and we are definitively adding Cuban shredded beef and more Cuban flavor to our breakfast. More

I've been at Soul de Cuba a couple of times, and it has been a great experience in both occasions. The ropa vieja is excellent, but the Red Snapper tastes really good. If you are Sea Food lover, I highly recommend the Shrimps as appetizer. The 'Mojitos' are definitely one of the best in town, and the 'Rice Pudding' is... More

Dry eggs and toast. Hash browns over fried and shriveled. Limited breakfast menu. I remember decent lunches here before but I can't recommend breakfast. Order a coffee and sit outside listening to Cuban music.
