The food was amazing at Yuka! We arrived around 7 p.m. and the restaurant quickly filled up. They had a small band playing drums that was perfect for the atmosphere here. Our waiter was fast and very friendly. Definately recommend the empanadas and tostones! Everyone's meal was fantastic.

Went for a quick appetizer before we went back to the hotel to change attire for a later dinner. Servers were quick to get us a table and menu's. We ordered a "Verradero Passion" (passion fruit mojito) and a "Papa Melon" (Watermelon juice puree & rum). The drinks were alright but kinda unusual. Both were not as cold as I... More

Had some calamares and salmon here enjoying the last afternoon sun. The food was amazing, and I loved the street view and the modern cuban feel and the salsa music. Would certainly go back later in the evening to hear live music.

The lady who owns/manages this place is just rude and disrespectful. They just want your money and absolutely don't care about the customer service experience. Horrible place. Never going back!

I had the churasco with Fufu and a Mango Tiramisu for dessert. The churasco was really good the Fufu was okay. My husband really loved the Congri rice. The dessert was really great! And the Cuban b*tch mojito was tasty!

Not sure what happened here but I found this place to be not very Cuban at all. All "presentation" and no food!. My fish was overcooked. Nice outdoor seating in a great location. Service was slow and not friendly

Was surprised at quality of the food. The group had everything from salmon to steak all well prepared and tastefully presented. Everyone enjoyed there meal. A nice place to sit and people watch but some may not like the outdoor seating so make sure to ask to be seated inside.
