I finally decided to check out Q after many yearly visits to Isla Mujures without doing so and I have to honestly say...I don't get what a lot of people like about this place. There was so little meat on our sandwiches, I thought I was back in America. I felt ripped off. It was all bread. The owner is... More

Not only does this restaurant have the best mojitos on the island; you get 2 for the price of one. At 80 pesos ($4 U.S.) for 2 drinks, how can you go wrong? The cuban sandwich and the pulled pork sandwhich are both favorites of mine and I adore the fried plantains here.

This was our first meal in Isla. We thought we'd get a quick bite of lunch after checking into our hotel and before we headed to the beach. We ordered a Cubano sandwich, a pulled pork sandwich, and a toston (chicken on fried plaintains instead of bread. We also ordered one order of their Hungarian potatos to share, although I... More

New location, bigger menu (Ropa Vieja on tostones!), a bar and the same attention to detail and sense of caring that goes into what you're eating. Vivian is a wonderful, engaging hostess and one of the reasons we love coming back to Isla.

Qubano has great food..... but the mojitos are superb and they are often two for one. Make it a point to eat there at least once during your stay. You won't be disappointed.

We had mojito's that were delicious. The cuban sandwich we shared was delicious as always, and the appetizer we had was unbelievable. You have to try the... More

Always, always, always get the Hungarian potatoes! You will love them! I had a Cuban sandwich, watermelon water, and Hungarian potatoes. The waitstaff was very busy and they efficiently took care of the whole crowd. Prices are nice on the wallet and the food is EXCELLENT!
