My family loves appetizers. We pretty much always try to have something we have never had before. That would be the hungarian potatoes. They were delicious as was all the food we had there! Excellent service as well!

This was my favorite meal of the week. The Cuban food is crazy good- be sure to have the Ropa Viejas and the Tosotone sandwich. Pretty sure I can't find the same back home in Cleveland (so sad). 12 of us had dinner there mid-week, sat right down and all food was out within 40 minutes- amazing!

This place has the best Cuban food I've ever had, I had to eat here everyday because it was so good, the fresh squeezed watermelon juice is the best I've ever had, I'm going to miss this place!

Vivian always gives us the most amazing experience... every year we return to find our favourite Cubano sandwiches, fries, and whatever else she recommends! When we have friends visit the island Vivian is always our first stop. Can't wait to see you again in 2017!

Qubano is one of the first places we must eat on every visit to Isla Mujeres... The food, the atmosphere and of course Vivian are just top notch...

I visited Qubano with a group of girlfriends for lunch, and I must say, we all enjoyed our food tremendously! Vivian, the owner is a fabulous cook and makes your visit a pleasure. Her little dog, a Chihuahua, is a pleasant addition to your visit - he's adorable! I enjoyed a delicious shrimp dish and others in the group enjoyed... More

After several days of meat, rice and beans, it was Qubano's ensalada Vivian that caught my attention. It was an excellent choice. The ingredients were fresh and the combination delicious. I tasted the Hungarian potatoes and tostones that my friends ordered; they too were delicious. Later that week I ran into Vivian in the grocery store, where I was rounding... More
