All mondays at 9 p.m. you can enjoy an excellent live big band show. Some mondays the band plays jazz, others boleros and salsa, while you have a drink and dinner. Very nice place, very good service and very good ambience. This restaurant opens daily.

The food is excellent, with a very good service. Located in a corner street, you can see people go by the main drag (Ashford Ave). It has a live band some nights and swing chairs in the corner tables.

This was a nice place to eat after a day out in Puerto Rico. We were attracted by the look of the place and the outdoor bar/dining area along with Cuban cuisine. The wait staff was fun and attentive and the food was very good and nicely presented. I would go back.

Cuban food as good as I've ever had. Big band every Monday night (but a steep cover charge of $35, or just stand on the sidewalk and enjoy). Perfect Condado location to have a drink and watch the people stroll or jog by.

We visited Yerba Buena restaurant in Condado recently for a family dinner and was a very pleasant experience. The night was warm, the food was great and service was great too. It is a Cuban restaurant, offering different types of foods too. We ordered chicken, mahi mahi, mofongo, seafood and meat and we loved everything. Every dish was well prepared... More

Great spot for live music on the weekends. Excellent customer service, staff are extremely attentive. The food is also very good as are the drinks. Highly recommend. In fact, the hostess at the restaurant next-door actually suggested we go there given we wanted to experience "Cuban" cuisine while in Puerto Rico. I had the glazed ribs, red beans & rice,... More

First of all, we were able to eat on their open dining area ... My wife had the can can pork chops, and I had chicken filet. We had empadillas for appetizers and pumpkin fritters and ice cream for dessert. The whole experience was great. The price was competitive for the hotel zone (we are on vacation, we expect to...

A mojito is a mojito. I no longer run on who makes "the best" anything.... Especially in Condado where all drinks are good to excellent. But just to sit in the bar, have appetizers and listen to good old fashioned Salsa music is priceless. Continually delivers high quality and service.
