This restaurant is in a small food court section of Sunflower/Bristol shopping mall, across from South Coast Plaza. Their lunch specials 1:00-4:00pm are very well priced. I had the chicken sandwich for $8.95 and which was delicious. Also tried their homemade sangria for $5.95 and very good as well. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich that he is still... More

Awesome lunch menu, from price, portion to quality... Sandwiches are big enough portion to share, and the service is fast.

I enjoyed this restaurant very much. The atmosphere is casual and lively, moderately priced, the service very good (every body very attentive) and the food excellent. Large portions of very tasty meats with rice and beans. I had chicken and loved it. Didn't have room for deserts but I will be back for sure.

This restaurant can also be found under "Bella Cuba restaurant" - same address. The food is awesome. The first look is not that great - place looks like it could use a little upgrade or maybe that just adds to the authenticity. Service and food better than at Havana down the road.

I was a little hesitant at first to step in. I am sure everything was clean (floor, ..) but it looked a little outdated and I rate "cleanliness" and looks very high in a restaurant. The place was packed so I risked it. What a pleasant surprise. The waiters are super friendly (like you are their best amigo). But the... More

My wife and I ate lunch yesterday for the first time at Bella Cuba. They offer a wide variety of Cuban dishes on their menu to try. They also have a special lunch menu in addition to their regular menu. Most items are served with white rice, black beans, and maduro plantains, plus garlic toast. I had the Lechon Asado... More
