“Neighborhood Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

Pleasantly surprised to find this vibe in Milwaukee. Dining here helped make my first visit to the city memorable. The portions were generous and the fried plantains were perfection. The Mojito needed to be strained too much mint but still tasty. Definitely a do a over!

“A family favorite. A great choice for lunch or dinner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

Saturday lunch at Cubanitas. The Cubano is the best. And so are the plantain chips with guacamole. Always a great choice for your dining dollars. We get to Cubanitas ever few months as it is a favorite!

Food is quick and good. It comes out with no frills on paper plates.
The Margaritas are GREAT! Great taste and will kick your butt!

“being from new york i am spoiled. the mojito was awful, couldnt drink it,”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

being from new york i am spoiled, the mojito was awful, undrinkable,i couldnt drink it and they had the nerve to charge me for it. the food left a lot to be desired. The steak was tough and unsavory, the rice and beans was ok. the restaurant itself was pretty and invitting. I guess if you are not hispanic or have experienced delicious cuban cuisine, this will be the greatest invention since popcorn. im sorry to say i dont feel that way and next time i visit milwaukee i will not visit this place.may i also say that in all cuban restaurants i've been to the toasted bread and butter is served as a courtesy not sold to the custmer.

“Delicious and affordable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

I was staying downtown for work and wanted a nice meal but about all the steak houses and other restaurants in the area seemed to be either bar food or $50 steaks. I took the short walk from water st to Cubanitas and ordered the pork. It was quick, delicious and affordable. With a beer and meal I think it was under $20. Great choice if staying downtown.
