If you like Cuban cuisine then Cuba Cuba is the place for you. The simple dishes are well prepared and flavorfu typical Cuban fare. I had the Lechon asado, a slow roasted pork dish with moro rice and bean sauce. Naturally I did order plantains as well which were not as starchy and greasy as they can be at other... More

This place is amazing. Went for dinner and I had the paella and my friend had the tuna. Authentic Cuban food. Perfect temperature, fresh ingredients, beautifully presented and prepared. I was not even aware this place existed but now I can't wait to go back. Oh, the mojito was perfection as was the tres leche dessert. The serving staff was... More

We had just finished viewing some shows at DAM and Clyfford Still Museum in Denver, and were in the mood for something different. Checked online and found Cuba Cuba just down the block. It's in an old house and has great outdoor seating. I loved the food. He had the pork, I had the chicken. We also had plantain chips... More

I ate at Cuba Cuba's Glendale/Cherry Creek location yesterday while in Denver. The lunch prices are in the $7-10 range and the portions are generous. The meals were delivered to the table quickly and the food temperature was just right. The taste is, well, wow! Glendale location has a nice outside area with tables. Next time I return I will...

WOW is this a great find! Totally stopped in on a whim after leaving work - expecting to have a crappy mojito or two with friends, but I was wrong. The mojitos are great, the food is truly authentic, and I can't wait to go back.

We went to Cuba Cuba in Denver last night. Service was super, both of the meals (Cubana sandwich and flank steak) were great, the place is such fun, and the tres leches dessert was delicious. We got there at 5 p.m., and had no problem finding a table for 2. By the time we left, the place was packed. Wonderful... More

Being Canadian, we have traveled numerous times to Cuba. Since we were going to be in Denver this week, we decided to check this place out to see how authentic it is. The decor is great and actually have our own copy of a picture on their wall! Upon entering the lovely-looking house, we were warmly greeted by staff. Meal... More

I had dinner with a good friend. I hadn't been there in awhile since it's a long way from home. As usual the service was great but the food is the star. I had the pork shoulder with fried plantains, black beans, and rice. Large portions, excellent presentation, and the food is as good as Cuban gets. Very close to... More

I sort of hate to share this...it's my favorite, and it's small. The food is wonderful (have maraquitas as an appetizer), plentiful, and the mojitos are the best north of Ybor City, FL. The bar is crowded but fun, love the atmosphere. Good music, great food, good service, but you may have a wait. Order a mojito and know it... More

First time that I have had Cuban food and very tasty. The happy hour mojitos are lethal - go easy as they are big! Beautiful skirt steak and slow-cooked pork shoulder followed plantain chips with mojo sauce - yum
