This place tries hard to be trendy and chic, and it almost succeeds. The food is good, though dishes are fairly small, the whole atmosphere is very stylish, waiters, whether male or female, very chic with their black clothes and hats. However, the service could be more attentive and friendlier, this spoils the overall impression.

Although there was nothing really wrong with the food or venue, I didn't enjoy our overall experience. The server made sure our water glasses and soft drinks were topped constantly - without having to ask. But my food was a bit bland and boring, my husband enjoyed his food. With the very happy-vibe and colourful surroundings, I was a bit... More

Had table outside and enjoyed the atmosphere and people watching. Food was from bland to good and did not feel the prices reflected the quality.

Had dinner with my family at Yuca (two children, 3 and 5 years). The server and bus man were very attentive. The mojitos are worth trying. So good! We had the guacamole, calamari and black bean soup to start. All delicious. The grilled chicken with fufu entree was incredible. Also had the ceviche. Very fresh. The live music inside was... More

Very pleasant cuban restaurant in a pedestrian street, big outdoor terrace. Very good food and drinks. Nice to see the walking people and tourists, and see the wonderful flora. Huge choice. Reasonable prices. Definitely recommend.

The overall experience was quite poor and for the 115$ we spent (2 persons, 1 x50$ bottle wine) we were unsatisfied. The guacamole appetizer was very bland. The warm goat cheese salad was quite good. The main course of recommended oxtail was a complete disappointment. There was a minuscule amount of meat. After stripping the meat from the bone and... More

We had a great dinner at YUCA, we orders several small plates tapas, all of them are delicious. Crab cakes are wonderful. This place is a must stop when you are in SB

As my husband and I were strolling down Lincoln Road, for our last night in Miami, we stumbled upon Yuca. We quickly browsed through the display menu, adjacent to the outdoor hostess stand, and decided to stop for a bite to eat. The hostesses promptly sat us on a nice quiet part of the restaurant, outside, and we began to... More

Had dinner here on our second night. location is excellent on Lincoln, lots of people watching from the outside table. Food was very good, especially the short rib of pork which i had never seen before. Service was excellent although bordering on over- efficient, the food arrived quite quickly and most of the food was on the table before we... More

My entire family enjoyed a meal here over spring break. We had 5 kids in our group, and the staff did an excellent job making them happy. The food was very good and the prices were not outrageous. We all enjoyed our meals and we would recommend Yuca to others.
