Welcome to Cuba

This place had the décor and the atmosphere of the Caribbean. The dishes are also authentic and the service is very good.

Went for lunch with my husband to Cuban Pete's. Food was excellent. I ordered the roasted chicken, with rice and beans and plantains. It was so much food we had leftover's for two more meals. The decor makes you feel like you are in Cuba in the early 1960's. Best part was that it is very reasonably priced and the... More

This place is beyond fabulous! I have yet to order something I did not love and as usual, I always over stuff myself! Also love the BYOB with their ready made drinks. All you need to do is mix in your choice of alcohol.

This place will make you forget your ethnicity and the fact you're in New Jersey lol. If ever you want to get away but don't have the funds to do so, try this restaurant. The food is amazing as well as the staff. I will say that this place can get ridiculously crowded but after you were seated you will... More

Love Love this authentic Cuban restaurant. The noise level is a little high, but it adds to the wonderful ambiance. Absolutely delicious food. We have returned to this restaurant numerous times.There are so many things to choose from, and each one has proven to be wonderful.

Must go for awesome Cuban food. Everything in this place makes you feel you are in Cuba even the gentlemen servers with the shirts they wear which are called Guayaveras. You won't be disappointed.

Cuban Pete's is a cool place to get some really yummy cuban food and cool carribean vibe. Great appetizers and terrific entrees. They have a really cool room where they display their wonderful 5 percent alcohol sangrias which you can order by the pitcher. They are BYOB, so be sure to bring a bottle which you can add to your...

Just awesome. Food is AMAZING!!! Service is great. Great atmosphere. Terrific for a couple or group dining. Prices are incredibly good. Gets a bit loud and seating is tight. But otherwise one of my absolute favorite places. Ricky Ricardo ribs are to die for.

The atmosphere can be fun, but the food is fairly mediocre. The wait staff wear fedoras and Cuban shirts, but it seems as if the food is not carefully prepared and it's often quantity rather than quality.
