Quaint Cuban Restaurant!

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... read 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.

I've been jonesing for a cuban ever since I moved to Colorado. This place offers a pretty decent variety of Cuban cuisine, but I've only had the Cubano so far. I will be returning to sample the rest of the menu. I was in a hurry so I couldn't really speak to much about the restaurant, but I can tell... More

Cuba Cuba has it all — great food, great drinks and a great setting. Situated in a super cute converted house, the restaurant is warm and inviting. The cocktail menu features classics and a few new favorites as well. My wife and I enjoyed the blackberry mojito, ginger mojito and caipirinhas. The kids loved the plantain appetizer and split the...

Highly recommended by locals and this place did not disappoint. The restaurant is made up of two old homes and has a real Key West vibe. We sat inside but there is also a cool partially open patio area. The tables were spaced nicely and the room was large and open. Our server was very knowledgable and attentive. Shrimp dish... More

Stopped in while visiting nearby family. Was surprised there are no accommodations for children-no high chairs or boosters. Table next to us held their toddler on their lap, we had to sit our infant carrier on the floor. Very vibrant and noisy, hard to have a conversation but the food is excellent.

Very popular restaurant which does not take reservations. Opens at 5 pm and fills fast. Restaurant is a house...but is great experience with plenty of food choices. Staff and food are great. Located just outside of central downtown a nice walk or uber ride is vest. Very little street parking in the ad area. You won't be disappointed. I will... More
