Fun food

Lunched with 18 of my closest girlfriends to celebrate the birthday for one of them. The food and service were great. I had the Ropa Viejo, super good. Highly recommend this place if you like Cuban! Next visit will include cocktails and dessert.

I ordered Ropa Vieja, and I got a "lazy" dish. I say lazy because ropa vieja or shredded beef is supposed to be done by hand and this one was made in a blender or any kind of kitchen appliance. The presentation in general was "0". The flavor was ok. The service is very slow but friendly. The place in... More

my title says it all. We decided to try twisted Cuban coffee based on positive reviews for the food. I was surprised by the amount of unhealthiness that comes from their food. This may be the way they cook in Cuba but believe me, McDonalds does not use their fryers so often like this place. Everything we tried was greasy... More

We stopped by for a quick lunch and enjoyed their twisted cuban sandwiches. Food was good, atmosphere was charming and service was friendly. We will go back for sure since there were so many things we wanted to try.

I've been here several times. The menu has so many interesting choices for us North-westerner's who haven't tried cuban food. Of course our table of 4 share bites of each others meals. Of all the times, the only one entree dish is worth the visit (besides the cocktails, appetizers and desserts).That choice must be the Lechon Asado ( Roast Pork)... More

This restaurant has good Cuban food. We like the small dishes then you can eat all the different combinations of items. The prices are average for the area. It is not a big place and is crowded especially on weekends. The servers are helpful, attentive, but busy. It is a homey atmosphere and fun. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

My husband & I had been wanting to try this place out for quite a long time, but it didn't seem like a place to bring kids. So...we finally had a chance on a Saturday date night. It was cozy, not that big, but tastefully decorated, and very clean. It looks as though it has been newly redecorated. It's on... More

This place is the real deal! The owner is from Havana, and the restaurant is decorated with lovely photos of Cuba. Our server was attentive and the service was great. Having been brought up with Cuban food, I can truly say that they get it right! When we told them it was our 17th anniversary, they brought out a piece... More

The Twisted Cuban Café & Bar is a charming little place on the edge of Woodinville, WA. My wife and I went there to celebrate and I started off with a Mojito that was just fine. Not knowing anything about Cuban food, we ordered a $15 appetizer sampler plate that was just awful. Everything was deep fried, some of it... More
