Reasonable prices and great food are two good reasons to visit. Small place with limited seating, we waited about 30 minutes for them to text us our table was ready on a busy Friday night. We were glad we waited. The Vaca Frita was amazing....More

Fantastic spot for casual Cuban food! Hands-down, my go-to order is the Vaca Frita with congri and sweet fried plantains. The Vaca Frita is so good I've gone out of my way to have Postmates deliver it. I've also really enjoyed the chicken soup and...More

Excellent food. However, the reason for this brief “review” is to let folks know that this place now opens at 12 pm (noon) instead of 10 am...substitute noon for whenever 10 or 11 am appear on the schedule.

My daughter and I had lunch there. The food was flavorful and excellent. The Cuban pork was moist and the sweet plantains we're perfect. The black beans and rice were excellent also. My daughter loved the beans and rice. Overall, wonderful experience.

I was born in Cuba, raised in Miami. I know Cuban food. This place is the next best thing to being in Miami. Food is great and large portions. My favorite is vaca frita and the flan. Also, the customer service is excellent.

We returned after too long an absence. The food was great, as before. The service was attentive. You’ll have to go to Miami or Havana for better Cuban food.

In a city that has few Cuban restaurants to choose from MiCubaCafe is a welcome addition. That being said the food was very good but not great/excellent. The selection was reasonable with more of a focus on meat, chicken and pork, with few seafood/fish dishes....More

With suggestion of a friend, I went to MiCuban Cafe and was very satisfied. The restaurant is very busy but food was fast and good services. As authentic as one could get outside of Cuba. Wine list is good but try their traditional mojito. Good...More

My son and I were looking for something a little different on a recent visit to DC. It’s an easy walk from the Columbia Heights metro stop. We loved the atmosphere and vibe, very fun and local. Food was delicious, we had croquettes and yucca...More

We went based on TripAdvisor reviews. They didn’t disappoint. We had a great meal. The food was very good, the service was adequate. Prices were quite reasonable. Some tables are a bit claustrophobic since the place is quite cramped. Overall a great experience and value.
