Reliable meal at a good price and great staff!

My husband is a Cuban food aficionado and will seek it out wherever he is so he was very pleased to find this pleasant restaurant. The portions are generous and the staff is friendly and efficient. The fried plantains are a favorite.

Guest at Preciados Hotel last week, discovered this nice place located in an alley. As a Brazilian, after ten days in Europe with no black beans in the meals, I was getting crazy to have rice & beans. Luckily Cuando sali de Cuba saved me ! Excelent food, Cuban ron, desserts, everything good, better than in the Calle Ocho in... More

We come here every time that we visit Madrid, so we have been here many times, now. The young staff are welcoming and friendly, and the food is reliably good. This is not "fine dining", but it is genuine Cuban food, and is much better than we often had in Havana. Madrileño food is wonderful, but sometimes it is nice... More

Just had the most amazing lunch at this little restaurant in Madrid. The food was delicious, authentic and made with quality ingredients. The service was friendly and helpful. I was able to taste things I had not eaten since I left Cuba 45 years ago! We need one of these in Sydney :-)

A little restaurant hidden on a side street of Calle Preciados near la plaza del Callao. Authentic Cuban food. I Had the ropa vieja and it tasted just like my mom's. Too bad I found it on the last night in Madrid.

Although the dishes were pretty "cuban" and the atmosphere inside was also very nice, with live music, we left with the feeling that they had played a bit with us. Most dishes are quite simple and are based on a bit of meat and side dish of rice. We shared many dishes but did not get more than 2 per... More

Average food and experience but looks like a nice place to go for drinks with live Cuban music. Comida y experencia normal pero parece como un buen lugar para tomar algo con musica cubana en directo.

Came across this bar via a sandwich board sign and thank god for that! A Vibrant Cuban Bar with non stop mojitos and fantastic Cuban music! Food looked authentic, and popular with the locals, half of whom seemed to be from Havana! Well worth a visit!

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
