We had an hour lay over after our trip to Brazil. We had great food in Brazil, but this may have had it all best. I ordered the skirt steak (#6) and, wow. Perfectly seasoned & cooked. The garlic chimchurri sauce was great, but the plastic container was too small and a tad tacky. The sweet plaintains were cooked perfectly,... More

This restaurant has surprisingly good Cuban food, considering it is an airport restaurant. I would recommend that you sit down to eat here. It is not really grab-and-fly food. I was hoping to buy a fish sandwich prior to boarding a long flight. But they couldn't do that for me, so I got a fish dinner to go. Not a... More

My husband and I had a long layover during dinner hours. We were looking for some place that we could relax and enjoy a good meal. Ku-va has a bar side and a restaurant side. It took a few minutes of waiting before we were seated, but the waiter that seated us was very polite. We ordered the ceviche which... More

I was traveling from South America to NYC and I had a stop at the Miami International Airport, I know food at the airports is the worst in the world but I was lucky to find this beautiful place with a fantastic menu, great music, happy atmosphere and a beautiful waitress with a smile. The food was fantastic and service... More

I'm telling you...try the tuna sandwich. You'll need a fork with it. Not the best choice to eat while waiting for your departure but fantastic. I would have never thought food could be this good in an airport, especially, for this type of meal on the go.

Very good food. Light and not grease as other restaurants that serve the same kind of cuisine. Nice and relaxing atmosphere in the middle of MIA. If you are going thru Miami international Airport. I definitely recommend this restaurant. Right across gate D19.

Ok, this seems strange because I ate at Ku-va in the Miamia airport. It doesn't seem logical that such great food could be found in airport but this place was amazing! Seriously, if I lived in Miami it would be worth going through security to eat here. Great Cuban food and great serving sizes. If you are at the airport... More

After 5 days at Atlantis, Bahamas, my husband said this was the best meal he had during the entire trip! The food was tasty. The restaurant was very clean. We would definitely go back!
