“Really great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Went with a group of 7 and we were welcomed openly. We had a very attentive waiter who was very knowledgeable. The drinks were varied and excellent. A varied menu that combines small plates and large plates, so you can choose what you'd like. The fish was excellent as was the calamari. The whole snapper is exactly that, a complete fish,head and all sliced open and stuffed.

“Very good Cuban food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

The tapas here are great, the sugar cane coated shrimps are so good. They have pork chop for the special and it's fall of the bone kind of tender, delicious.

“Great Cuban American fusion!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful meal outside under an umbrella! My husband had the pork special that melted in your mouth. The servers in fedoras made us feel like we were in Cuba! We highly recommend this restaurant!

Yuca had great service, a great patio/atmosphere and the best tapas we've ever had (and we've had a lot of tapas!). They also had a great wine list, highly recommend!!

“Small Portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Beware the food is amazingly good but the portions were very small! If you want to full for the night you have to under from the 28 dollar section.
