Ropa vieja and mar y tierra were both outstanding. The sangria was awesome. The mar y tierra was a combination of ropa vieja, shrimp and a ground beef with delicious seasonings on a pan fried green plaintain. It comes,with a salad but you can swap out the salad for yellow rice which I did. It was comparable to what you... More

This popped up when I put in Cuban food near me while near Patrick AFB We were not disappointed. We had the Churrasco Steak with Chimichurri Sauce. It was full of flavor. We live in the Daytona Beach area and this will be a definite 'must visit again' place. Quaint little place. Get there early or you will wait. The... More

What a unique experience. We were in Melbourne for the week and we visited twice. The first time was at the bar and we were well attended. Food was fabulous. Drinks were fun. The wait staff was very attentive to our needs and the other diners at the bar were friendly. Nice atmosphere and very authentic Cuban food.

We had lunch, for two in this cozy Cuban restaurant. Surprised when they brought us an appetizer of thinly sliced Cuban bread with a dip of ham salad, sauce on side made of olive oil, onions and habanero sauce-tasty. Very good lunch, sandwiches were large and juicy. Wait staff was very good. Cuban music on the flat screen TV. Nice... More

This is a small restaurant so be prepared to wait if you go at prime time. Get a drink at the bar, (we got a mojito), and wait outside and they will call you. The food was great. The service was superb. The hostess was very pleasant and as sweet as can be. Our waitress was named Love I believe... More

The restaurant is cramped with narrow spaces between tables. The acoustics are terrible so it is very loud in there. Not a place to have a quiet conversation. Just good food in a clean place. The wait staff was a little distracted but the food came out beautifully presented. I had the cuban sandwich which was very fresh, tasty, and... More

I was in business trip at Melbourne and feel to test Cuban food. There are many you can find but Cuban Island only local knows the quality of food. The seafood paella is the best I ever ate. The owner is so friendly and nice. I recommend if you stop by at Orlando get the car and try their Cuban... More

WARNING...Visiting Melbourne/indialantic area? ...if you want to be yelled at by your waitress, have the restaurant owner hide in the kitchen and refuse to speak to you...go to Cuban Island Restaurant. I've never, in 59 years, been so offended, appalled and mistreated in a restaurant. NEVER! Btw...It began when I politely told her that I ordered the tuna, not pork... More
