Having eaten at Cuba Libre in downtown DC, Cubana in Silver Spring, and having just returned from 10 days in Cuba, this is the best place for Cuban food by far.
Four of us dined there last night, wanting to relive our recent trip to Cuba for the Havana Jazz Fetival. They don't take reservations and were packed on a Saturday evening, but the 20 min wait (outdoors, since the place is really small) was more than worth the wait. Lechon asada was better than in Cuba, probably because it was perfectly seasoned, unlike Cuba where it is difficult for restaurants to get spices and food is often blander than expected. Save room for tres leches or flan, both are outstanding. Portions are huge and we'll be enjoying our leftovers tonight! Atmosphere is cozy, service is very attentive and friendly, good Cuban music in the background. You can miss it from the highway, tucked away in a garish strip center. Don't be put off, it is great food, great value!
