We found a Cuban restaurant near the Irvington Historical neighborhood. It was quaint, fun small & loud. It has a good vibe with friendly waitresses. Tables are very close together. There are also tables outside on the sidewalk. My food was very tasty-fish cooked in...More

We ended up at Pambiche because the nearby "Screen-Door" had a line around the block. I could not have been happier with our second choice. Pambiche has a very cozy atmosphere and the food is fantastic. I had the Picadillo Comunista and it was an...More

A tiny Cuban restaurant featuring colorful walls lined with family-like photos and tchotchkes that is always packed with patrons and abuzz with conversation, Pambiche serves traditional Cuban fare that is inventive and delicious.

Wonderful Cuban food. Great primitive atmosphere and wonderful fresh Cuban food. Good drinks too and friendly service. May be a wait on line but worth it. Just get a drink and breathe and then get your table.

Just got back from trip to Cuba and wanted a taste of it in my mouth. So long a line we left after 20 minutes with no tables opened up. This place is tiny and does not take reservations plus has good food and so...More

Went here with a couple friends to try it out! Oh my goodness! So good, I don't remember the plate I ordered, but it had shredded beef I believe. I tried their hot chocolate, it was a large cup of warm deliciousness! The service was...More
