Good Boardwalk Restaurant with a twist.

This is a nice place right on the boardwalk. The food is Cuban so not something I am accustomed to but was very good. The mixed drinks were good and the atmosphere was very good and overlooked the boardwalk. the prices weren't bad for the location, sevice and quality of the food. If you are walking... read more

I convinced a few of my friends to go to Cubacan after having a pleasant experience at the bar. (The bar tender with the bright blue eyes is awesome!) However, I felt like an idiot after telling them how great it was. We arrived at the entrance on the boardwalk and asked how long the wait was. The hostess said... More

It is not the first time I go to this restaurant, the wait is worth more than an hour but its menu is amazed, ropa vieja are my favorite.

Stopped in a Sunday night to make dinner reservations for Monday at 8pm. The girls at the front desk were nice enough, and as they turned and flipped pages in their calendar repeatedly, they told us they could only accommodate our party of 2 at 8:15. However, they said, if we called ahead of time on Monday, they would be... More

I have no idea how the food is at this place because I couldn't get a reservation during reasonable dining hours. My sister-in-law's bachelorette party is later this month and I called well in advance to reserve a table for 11 people for dinner (a nice group of girls; not an obnoxiously loud, trashy crowd). Because of our large party,... More

Love Cubacan for a quick pre or post-beach beer. Nice selection of beers and good service. Have only tried the tapas and recommend the empanadas.

Starting with a mixed drink, Mojito, it was all downhill. Drink had little if any alcohol and was filled with ice. 4 of us and all the drinks were weak. Ordered sautéed peppers and empanadas for appetizer, three small peppers that were good but hardly worth the price. Empanadas were best part of the meal. Shrimp entree had no flavor.... More

Went here with my girlfriend after a day at the beach away from the kids, girls day out... We could not decide what to have since everything sounded so yummy so we ordered several apps and shared them. The food was delicious, every single choice was good. The staff is extremely attentive, we sat outside and there was always someone... More

This place did not have a ton of variety but everything on the menu was great. We all shared each others meals. The sangria will knock you over if you are not ready. We will be returning.

I loved the food so much we went there twice. We also met another family and we joined tables which was awesome. They gave us plenty of food.
