“Excellent food - quick and courtesous service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Stopped here for a quick lunch while in Melbourne for a business trip and have absolutely no regrets! Be warned - the portions are big - much larger than I expected. I ordered empanadas for appetizers and had the lechon asado with yellow rice and black beans for my meal. The lechon asado lunch portion was enough for two people and I couldn't not finish it all so had to take the leftovers back to the hotel. Definitely give Cuban Island a try if you are in the area. I plan to return next time I am there!

“Delightful friendly good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

We got a tip on this place from our beachside motel.

We arrived late in the evening just as the guitar player was finishing and the place was full and lively.

We sat at the bar and felt immediately included in the " family " of the staff and locals who clearly enjoyed bantering back and forth about the food, music and their local activities.

The staff was very attentive, the food was excellent, and the service very pleasant and quick.

Any time we are in Melbourne again ( from Ontario ) we'll surely stop in again and will recommend it to anyone we meet.

“Great Find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We have been coming to this area for a number of years each spring but this is our first experience with Cuban Island....such a great find that we hit it twice in one week! Great, clean atmosphere. You can eat at the bar or at tables. Service was very friendly and helpful. Excellent sangria and all the Cuban dishes we tried were excellent - pork, shrimp, beef dishes all very good. Prices very reasonable for how well the food is prepared and presented. Highly recommend this place and we will return next year....at least twice if not more!

“You know when the owner is there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

My family visits this restaurant on a normal basis, we love it. But have noticed a big difference in the quality of food when the owner is there and when he is not. When the owner is at the restaurant everything is smooth and the food is always excellent. A couple of times we have had dinner without the owner being present and the food was not so good. I know he can't be around 247 but thought he should know
