“No time to eat? Try a mojito at the outdoor bar!”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

I've eaten here many times during visits to Palm Beach County in the last several years and have always been pleased with the consistently good food, service and atmosphere. Although we did not eat at the Delray Beach location during our most recent visit, we ate at the West Palm Beach location twice and my wife and I had a mojito at this location before visiting the Delray Beach Craft Festival. In the short time we were there the manager (off-duty and eating lunch with his daughter) recognized us from our previous visits and thanked us for our repeat business. Although we're not locals, this isn't the first time we've been recognized. Unlike many restaurants, much of the staff at Cabana is consistent over the years. The consistently excellent food, service and atmosphere keep us coming back.

“Always great”
Reviewed May 13, 2012 via mobile

Fresh seafood, great churrasco, paella is very good too. Try a pitcher of the white sangria. Apps: try the Marquita's and the Tapas de gambas. These tender shrimp are served in an unreal brown garlic sauce with slices of toasted Cuban bread, perfect for dipping the left over sauce. Also, try the homemade coconut and banana ice cream for dessert. Great place, quality has been solid for years. Great choice in Atlantic. Can't go wrong.

Reviewed May 3, 2012

One of my favorite restaurants. Excellent service. Awesome mojitos. Cuban food with an updated modern twist. The ceviche is particularly good.

“Best lunch buffet value on Atlantic Ave”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

The lunch buffet is a great deal, around $10 or so for almost everything you can have in the evening as a main course except at a drastically reduced price. If you've been wanting to try this restaurant but aren't sure then have lunch and you won't be disappointed.
They also have seating inside and out which is nice if you want to people watch. Its usually not crowded at lunch which is also nice if you're in a hurry.
Give it a try and if you like Cuban, you won't be disappointed.
