Great bar atmosphere

Great service, and drinks at the bar! Can get pretty crowded. Went to happy hour and stayed a while longer for more good drinks. Did not have entrees, just apps (like the tostones). Don't have any complaints.

My wife and myself had a late lunch here on Sunday and we were pleasantly surprised. A friend mentioned this restuarant and we were not disappointed. We started out with the ceviche tasting which consisted of shrimp, tuna and red snapper some of the best I've had. Our next dish was the grilled octopus with arugula and chorizo vinaigrette, another... More

Stopped for a bite before a show at the Stone Pony. Didn't want a full dinner (which seemed quite large from seeing other diners' meals) so we went with a meal of appetizers. Started with the sliders made with beef and chorizo. Yummy! Calamares Fritos - it melted in your mouth, it was so tender. Cooked perfectly! Can't pass up... More

Ordered the peril is way bland, their rice and beans we only so so. My dates steak was also average at best. The dessert which was a pudding was very good and the only memorable part of the meal. How it got a zagat we rating is beyond me. least this meal

I have been here a couple of times before, and never disappointed. As usual the food was very, very good. We started at the bar for a drink and an a little relaxing banter before we moved tot he main event. We sat in the back corner, nice table overlooking the boardwalk. We started the table off with some empanadas... More

We really enjoyed dinner at Cubacan last evening. The Tuna Cerviche and Empanadas were delicious. We shared 3 desserts, Tres Leches Cake, a Flan and a Chocolate mousse that was to die for. Service was attentive, congenial and informative. I will definitely recommend Cubacan to my friends.

Finally get a chance to have dinner here on a Sunday night. There were four of us and we were seated promptly, but that is where the service ends. The decor is very nice in there and I am sure having a mojito is a lot different in the summer as opposed to the very darkness of the winter. Anyway,... More

I have been here a few times for lunch but this is my first time for dinner. I went with a group of 5 people for a friend's birthday. The ambience and décor were wonderful. The service was outstanding. I forget our waiter's name but he was attentive and very likeable. Our table was right next to the window, over... More
