Best Cuban Food in the Rockies

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... read 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

We stayed in Glendale, CO (the Cherry Creak area of Denver) for one night and had the opportunity to eat a meal from Cuba Cuba. It was outstanding. The menu has a Cuban flare and we were not disappointed. It was simple fare but absolutely delicious. I had the Pan Con Lechon sandwich which is slow roasted pork, veggies and... More

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.
