“Great Cuban experience”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

We had the cerviche, drunken chicken rice, Tiger prawns, and the special fish filet. The fish, Tiger prawns, and the cerviche was so delicious and unique. The drunken chicken rice was good, but the other dishes were so much more enjoyable. Highly recommend

“Good Cuban food on the Beach”
Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

There are lots of Cuban joints located on SoBe, but you must put this eatery right up there with some of the better ones. It is a cosy, small establishment, but packs a punch with it's menu variety and the exotic flavors. We found out about this place by purchasing a Groupon. So we caught a good deal on our meal. I had the skirt steak entree which is seasoned and marinated beautifully. Very good. The rice is fresh and delicious as well. The best thing on the plate was this type of potato that was soft and full of flavor...omg...never tasted a potato that had so much flavor to it and so tasty! The green plantains wasn't half stepping either! The sangria I had could of used a bit more alcohol in it, but it was fruitful and refreshing. Overall, I will be visiting this establishment next trip to South Beach! Thanks Bella Cuba for a good South Beach experience and a trip to Cuba without going all the way to Cuba.

“Excellent Service”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The place is very friendly, the food is good. There are so many bad restaurants in Miami, where they rip you off and provide horrible service. It was a very pleasant experience at Bella Cuba, I would recommend this place.

“Great Experience!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Came upon Bella Cuba and decided to give it a try having never eaten Cuban food before. The service was excellent as he wasn't overbearing but very mild mannered; it was perfect service in my opinion. The food was flavourful (unfortunately I don't remember what we ordered) and the portions were just right.

The decor and ambiance was great and I would eat at Bella Cuba again if I'm in that part of Miami again. Thank you for the excellent experience.

“We thought it was so-so”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Family style restaurant which didn't appear to have AC on as front door was open. There is also an unshaded outdoor dining area on busy street. Had a Groupon coupon and had lunch there. Haven't eaten Cuban food many times so am a bit unsure how to rate it. We thought all the dishes were average; maybe it was the particular dishes we ordered. We each had a Cuban pulled pork sandwich, I had what was supposed to be "fresh lemonade" and was plain water with about 3-4 slices of lime floating in it. Fresh squeezed lemonade? We then shared a caramel flan for dessert. It was just OK but not the best (the best is at The Columbia Restaurant, Sarasota, FL-recipe is on their website). There were only about 6 other diners in restaurant that looked to seat 40-60 but even so the food was very slow in coming. Our waitress was helpful in explaining Cuban dishes and ingredients and brought a small plate of yucca to try as we'd not had it. It's OK if you're not wanting to pay Lincoln Rd. prices.
