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.

I have never had dinner here but l understand that it comes with dancing and music salsa style. The title of the restaurant stands for Young Urban Cuban American hence the salsa dancing.

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

Try the Piquillos de Pepin, peppers with Chorzio. Excellent. Service is a little slow but because they are always busy.

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.
