Good Cuban Food

I have been visiting this restaurant on and off since 1991 and the food has always been great. I specially like the Ropa Vieja, and so do my children. The prices are reasonable, the last few times I have been the service has been slower than it used to be, but not terrible, I hope that they go... read more

I recently moved into the San Diego area. Back in September I was here looking for a place to rent, and of course, great places to eat. I found this one on my way to the airport, and decided to stop by before my flight. Ambiance seems good, the place claims it has the best Cuban and Puerto Rican food.... More

After watching "The Chef", we had to find a "Cuban Sandwich". We have driven by Andre's Cuban Restaurant for years and not until recently, have dined there. An added bonus was a Groupon I purchased. The Cuban Sandwich, Plaintains, Garlic Bread and Potato Soup was absolutely delicious!! The spices teased our tastebuds. The staff welcomed us with open arms. We... More

We went in late one night after enjoying San Diego. They gave us the special even though we picked up the food to go. Each of us ordered something different and each of us loved what we chose. Very friendly staff.

Hadn't been there in a long time. Portions are large. The chicken I got had enough chicken and rice for two people. That being said it was rather dry and could have used some sauce. I thought it would also be spicier. The waitress never came back to see how things were. My husband's food was a bit better. But... More

They have decent Cuban comfort food, nothing spectacular but ok. The portions are good sized but the service can be a little slow.

We came with our almost 6 year old. They do not have a kids menu but they had a great combo with enough food for both of us. Just ordered a side of rice to make sure we had enough. Since moving from orlando, this is the first Cuban place we have found. The food and service was great! I... More

The restaurant was busy but seemed well-staffed so we were surprised that service was lacking. While our server was friendly, she took over 10 minutes to bring our drink order (a beer and a glass of wine). Keep in mind there is no hard liquor license so don't look for a mojito at this Cuban restaurant. It would have been... More

I came with my wife to have some dinner around 6pm on a Tuesday. We had a good experience, music was great and waiters were friendly. We highly recommend Andres restaurant for those that love Cuban and Puerto Rican food. 😊
