Always a great experience!

Since the first time I visited this restaurant I fell in love with it. The food is so delicious and flavory. The service staff is very candid and friendly and the ambience is always so vivid and colorful! The place is loud and crowded most of the time, so be prepared for that and if you can make... read more

Wow, this was my second visit to Cuba Cuba and I can't wait for my third. It was swamped on Monday night—perhaps Spring Break?! But the vibe was electric. The staff seemed energized by the diners. What a win-win. Had the ceviche, empanadas, skirt steak AND paella. Yum! Would order any one of them again and again. Oh, and did... More

Great place to have a lively dinner with friends. A small group from a conference truly enjoyed Cuba Cuba. Great food at very reasonable prices. Ceviche was great! Portions are large enough that less that one dish per person is needed, if you want to save room for dessert, and you WANT dessert. Tres Leches was very good, but creme... More

Having lived in Miami for the majority of my life, I was dismayed at the lack of Cuban cuisine in Colorado. When the wife and I found Cuba Cuba we were very happy. I will say that the cuisine is authentic. My only complaint if you can count it as that, is that when compared to Cuban restaurants in Miami(there... More

Loved the food at Cuba, Cuba. Shrimp dishes were terrific. Went on a Friday night and it was very crowded, but we got a table for two pretty quickly. Service is great. Only problem is that is rather noisy.

There are a lot of things to like about Cuba Cuba, Denver. It is in a location that is easy to find parking on the street. It is located on a corner of a residential area, and on the border line of the metered area; so you can find parking on the side of the road and not worry about... More

This is a fun, trendy little place which is located in an old Victorian house in the downtown area. I love the rustic feel of the decor, the tables and floor. It's an upbeat place where you can go for a good meal with friends and have a few drinks, some good food and the staff have always been friendly.... More

Everything on the menu is exceptional plus consistent great service. We try to eat here at least once a month. The only downfall is they don't take reservations for 2 so there have been times we've been stuck drinking in the bar for a bit. Oh well. Still love this place.

On our last trip to Denver, our son suggested this restaurant and all 4 of us had great meals! The food was authentic Cuban and the drinks were all delicious! We all tried something different, from sandwiches to meals to different sides and all were very good. Servers friendly and knew their menu. Busy, but everything kept moving. Would definitely...

This restaurant in Denver's Golden Triangle, one-half mile from our downtown hotel, is small, quaint and cute. It's in an old house in a more or less residential area. The highlight of our meal was the tapas. We started with the Mariquitas Cubana and the avocado mash was delicious. The Empanadas de Picadillo had the right seasoning on the ground... More
