Absolutely amazing cuban cuisine! Definitely on the list of recommendations for friends and family visiting Denver. The rice is delicious, and their meat is so so good! The service is great and the staff is super friendly and helpful at choosing what to eat.

Arrive early~~~it was a Friday evening~~~they open at 5:00 pm~~~as it gets very crowded very fast which added to the noise level in our area, tremendously. It was quite obvious that this is a popular place, especially on a Friday night. There are two dining areas and we were seated in the glass walled room that seemed set up for... More

Its exterior is painted from the palatte of Carribean colors and trim often seen... More

We had 2 appetizers, 3 entrees, 8 drinks and 2 deserts for $171. The dinner lasted 3 hours and we were never rushed. My friends described it as "great food, great service, and great atmosphere." For friends getting together, it was wonderful. I'm not big on fries, but their Mojo fries are incredible. All of the entrees were great. The... More

I had been wanting to try this for quite some time and finally got around to venturing over. I was not disappointed at all and have already been back several times since that first visit. The house made mojitos are delicious and so is the food. There can be a little bit of a wait at times though so be... More

We called ahead to let them know to expect a group of eight. This was my first visit here so I wasn't sure what to expect. The atmosphere was hip (but not overly so) and lively. They were ready to seat us after about a five minute wait. Appetizers were out shortly after we ordered & the mojitos were out... More

The food at Cuba, Cuba is worth a visit. Went for a special occasion dinner on a Friday night. Arrived early to have time for a un-rushed meal before going to see a play. From the moment you enter, the service disappoints. Waiting to be seated even though there are are plenty of ready tables. An aggressive waitress pushing mojitos....... More

Swung by on the way home from work. The cubano was very good and the fried plantains were excellent. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars was when I went service was basically non-existent. Several people saw me standing there from the kitchen, but no one called anyone to come take my order at the counter. Good food though.

sorry about the service but this was actually an experience you had at one of our sandwicheria's and not the cafe and bar. Looking forward to a better experience next time. -kristy socarras More
