My husband had the black sea bass which he loved and my daughter had the salmon which she thought was delicious. Desert was really good the Coconut Flan is... More

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

We love this place for a quick drink. Mojito is great. Foods are okay. Some of the items we ordered were slightly different from the description on the menu. Maybe they ran out of ingredients? If you sit down to eat, service may be slow.

I've been here numerous times and the food is pretty good. The skirt steak and the corn with cojito cheese are amazing. In the summer the waits are terrible, the service not so good, and screaming kids are every where.

Great view but over priced food without any vegtables or a salad for 25 bucks. My dinner sounded great on the menu but it was just rice and beans with shrimp. The sauce was good but the lack of any sides was disappointing
