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

We'd tried this place about a year ago and had a disappointing experience. Thought we'd try again as perhaps things had improved. Food- Tilapia had a just OK flavor, beans that came with it were lukewarm and lacked flavor. The yucca fries, which I've had at other restaurants and loved, were stone cold and hard as a rock, we left... More

After touring the Woodinville wineries on our vacation, we stopped at the Twisted Cuban Cafe for an early dinner. We had a family group of seven and were seated promptly. We tried the sampler plate appetizer and got to try a good variety of items. We all ordered a different entrée and every one was delicious. None of us had... More

The name and the draw of Cuban food was how we found The Twisted Cuban Cafe. What a great stop after a day of tastings and wandering! The plantains were a treat, and the menu very authentic.

We are from Miami so when we saw a Cuban restaurant in Washington, we decided to try it. It was very good. You must try the Cuban sampler.

Cuban food with a gourmet touch. (and summer outdoor seating) The Ropa Vieja (shredded beef) was outstanding and my friend's Lechom Asado (roasted pork) was quite tasty. Cuba Libre (rum/coke) with Don Q simply perfect. Delicious flan. Will return!

Well located, well decorated and with a very nice outdoor seating this restaurant has a very nice compilation of cuban dishes like Picadillo, Bisteck de Palomilla, etc however it serves the most disappointing Cuban food that I ever had! This restaurant was recommended by an american friend (who is not that exposed to cuban food before) as a very good... More
