I can't speak to The Twisted Café being authentic Cuban food or not, so I'm not even going to try and blow smoke and pretend to know how this food stacks up against what you'd find in Cuba, or Miami for that matter. What I can speak to is food and styles of food I like and don't like. Twisted... More

This restaurant has very good food. Service was much better this time than the last. Before the kitchen was extremely slow to the point of ridiculous. This time everything was great. On this night I had the roasted pork which was excellent and the sampler appetizer. The Flan once again is the best I have ever had. The server told... More

Let me first preface this review with the fact that I grew up in Miami, FL and am very familiar with Cuban food. A Cuban restaurant in Seattle is a very rare thing so when I saw an ad for this restaurant I knew I had to go and try it out. I am glad I did. The food was... More

Attentive service. Properly prepared drinks. Wonderful shredded pork dinner. My second time here and was equally impressed both times. Had the Cuban sandwich on my first visit and enjoyed it so much I had a hard time convincing myself to try something else but was very glad I did because the shredded pork dinner was a treat. I'll be back... More

I was so excited to see a Cuban restaurant in the area. The place was pretty busy. We were seated in the back corner and it seemed like they forgot about us. The food was ok but not great. The Mojito was pretty good. I will probably not return unless it is just for a Mojito.

The place was filled and people were waiting for tables. The drinks were good, not watered down and the mojito I had was well crafted. Both ordered ropa vieja, the moros con cristianos (white rice with black beans) was ok, the tostones very good, the meat, not so good. The problem was that there was wayyyy to much tomato sauce....

My son recommended this restaurant, he found it by coincidence. You would never know it's Cuban by it's name, but it's amazingly delicious. This restaurant is a sandwich shop by day and a cozy Cuban restaurant for dinner. It has a very cozy and nice atmosphere, very appealing inside and the food was great. The owner himself takes pride in... More

People had talked about this place being good and I had never been. Now I have! Food is great and very reasonably priced. It had a Trip Advisor sticker in the window so I guessing it has had great reviews all along and I have only just got to putting my view forward. If you are in Woodinville, make sure... More

The best cuban food I have been served, since I visited my family in Miami. Julio met us at the door. We ordered sandwiches, the twisted cuban and the tuna melt on fresh baked bread with garlic aioli. Both were delicious. The iceberg (not my favorite lettuce) salad was loaded with toppings. We enjoyed the lunch so much that we... More
