Best I can say is just "OK". My Vaca Frita was kind of stringy and greasy. The Mojitos were way too tart and not sweet enough. Service was very pleasant and my friends enjoyed their meals, so maybe it's just me. Oh yeah, when we walked out onto the patio there was a really foul sewerish smell. I was embarrassed... More

A little out of the way, parking was easy, and Cuba Cuba was well worth the trip. Our appetizers and dinners were all excellent and the service was pleasant. Judging from the full room of diners, we were not the only ones enjoying our meals.

My wife had heard good things so she wanted to give this restaurant a try. We got there about 20 minutes before they opened as we had heard that a line forms and this was true the night we were there. We started with plantain chips and dips. Our entrees were Churrasco Con Papitas (garlic-parsley chimmichurri skirt steak, mojo fries... More

Two small houses+Cuban food=recipe for a great time. This restaurant is truly a local gem with 3 small separate areas in the restaurant with different energy. The bar is hot, crowded, loud and full of energy with the room next to it calm and soothing with white walls and billowing ceiling. Finally, the outdoor patio allows you to breathe the... More

As a long time resident of Miami (with many authentic Cuban restaurants, I consider myself a Cuban food afficionado. Cuba Cuba is right up there with the best of them.

In a cute old house with a sidewalk flanked with banana plants (how do they do this in Denver!?) we were seated immediately for what we thought would be a short bite and we were so intrigued by the menu and the ambiance we stayed for appetizer, mojitos, dinner and dessert all the time saying to ourselves "this is fun!...

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...
