Centally located on the marina in downtown. Good food, although the drinks were a bit weak. Friendly, accommodating staff and a nice atmosphere. Would return.

We arrived early to Aruba and needed lunch before checking into our hotel and have eaten at Cuba's Cookin' in the past and knew it would be good. We were not disappointed! Luis did a fabulous job of welcoming us and taking care of us....More

Newly located in the Renaissance Marketplace downtown, Cuba's Cookin' has moved with the times just as when Fidel began his march on Havana in 1959. This is what Havana would have looked & felt like.... and when the live music starts up nightly....this is exactly what you would have heard & seen back then. A moment in history brought out in Cuba's food, mojitos, art, culture and dance. A real authentic dinning experience you will take home forever from your trip to Aruba.
