Wonderful meal, great service. We enjoyed delicious food: drunken chicken rice, churrasco and stuffed red peppers with goat cheese. The server recommended bunuelos cubanos for dessert. It was yummy! Will definitely return.

Had a very nice Cuban dinner with my wife and I on a visit to Miami. Great mohito and Cuban beer, appetizer sampler and seasoned beef. Service was excellent as well!

Bella Cuba is the best Cuban restaurant in SoBe. Not very busy (Sunday night) but excellent food. We had ropa vieja, "drunken rice", and churrasco. All were flavorful and delicious. Prices are quite reasonable (<$20) and you get plenty of food. We definitely will return.

We went here our last night in Miami beach after spending many nights in several pricey restaurants in the area. The food was great, try the drunken chicken rice and roasted pork, the mojito's were good too. The service was fine, the price was right, and there was no wait. It is a little off the main drag but easy... More

Recently found this gem on Tripadvisor during a stay in Miami. We wanted some authentic cuban and found just that. Just a block away from the more touristy Lincoln Road mall this place made delicious black bean soup, empanadas & currassco steak with Chimmichurri. Generous Mojitos as well.

Went with a fairly large group for this small spot. Service was fine, if a bit spotty. There was literally no one else in the place so there's no reason for any delay in service. Food was a mixed bag. Some dishes were very good, some just so - so. The mojito was very good. There are two sizes. They... More

I called him back again to finally get entree. Not going back, yes Mojitos were good, but not $15... More

We found this late on a Friday night after a flight delay from the snowy north. Walking on our way to Lincoln Rd, we saw the discreet sign, looked at the menu, felt we'd found our best option before joining the crowds further along. We drank Cuban beer, delicious, though now having read reviews, I wish I'd tried the mojito.... More

I have never understood the mojito thing - to sweet. Until I had one here. Lite, lovely, easy to drink. We visited Saturday night and HAD to go back the next night for more. We tried mojitos up and down Lincoln Road. They were all to sweet and overpriced. This place does them right.

My mom and I went there for dinner. The food and drinks we ordered were good. Tasty pork, and delicious mojito. They were very busy the night we went there, with all tables full including two big groups. There were only 2 servers, and they also had to take care of cleaning tables, handle the checks, seating etc... So everything,... More
