Delicious food off the beaten track!

Was in town for a conference and we wanted to have dinner away from the downtown area for a change of pace. We hopped in a cab and after a quick online search we decided to go here. What an absolute treat! The service was attentive and helpful - the cocktail menu was fabulous - and the food was... read more

Cuba Cuba delivers a fairly good sampling of cuban food. Nothing comparable to what you would get in Miami, FL but not bad for the mile high city. Of course I am personally biased since I have lived in Miami for quite some time.

Cuba Cuba in Denver came highly recommended. I had visited Cuba 3 times in the last 18 months, and enjoyed excellent paladares while there. The restaurant was a 20-minute walk from my downtown hotel. I had high hopes. I had an early dinner on a Friday evening. I started with a mojito (excellent) and Mariquitos Cubanos (plantain chips with avocado... More

Our Cuban friend from Florida, took us here a few years ago and we fell in love. Now we go there for special events (birthdays, anniversary) as the place is a bit pricey. We enjoy the Vaca Frita. The rice and beans compliment it very well. Also recommend the pineapple Mojitos! Get a pitcher, as you'll drink through it quickly.... More

While a little hard to find, the Cuba Cuba is an absolute pleasure to visit. I think this restaurant was the star of our trip to Denver. The food was sumptuous and plentiful, the drinks were incredible, and the atmosphere was soft, dreamy, and wonderful. I would recommend Cuba Cuba to anyone looking for a gorgeous date night out that's... More

I was born in Cuba and have grown up on Cuban food. Outside of Florida, it's challenging to find great Cuban food in the states. And, when you do find it many times it's modernized or "Nouveau" and not exactly authentic. Cuba Cuba Cafe is down-to-earth, traditional, and like what you'd find in the classic Miami restaurants. What a find!... More

In a word, infernal noise! Poor service, delays, expensive, prices lacked dollar sign (latest psychological manipulation trick), food OK but not any better than at many other Cuban restaurants.

Went for dinner with my wife who recommended it after a previous visit with her girl friends. Conveniently located near the Denver Art Museum. Nice atmosphere and great traditional drinks. The flank steak was very good with black beans and plantain. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Great place for a date or a visit with the family.

Great meal while spending an afternoon in downtown area. Opens at 5 pm. Had the paella, crime brûlée, spicy mango sangria. The sangria was pretty spicy, but I guess the name should have been a clue. Nice ambience, friendly staff.

Love the atmosphere. Would be an awesome date night or gathering for friends and family! The service was exceptional and the food good. We had the plantains...so good. Flan was very good. Not a fan of their key lime pie. The salads are very good as well. The pork is tender and juicy. Enjoy!
