I needed to supplement a family brunch and went to Claudette for borekas. Although she told me to come back the next day for the spinach and cheese combo borekas, she never baked them. i purchased the cheese borekas instead and they were delicious!

We eat in and take home the home cooked food at Claudette's regularly. No matter which dishes we try, they are always exceptional.

I had the feta spinach turkey burger with roasted vegetables on the side and it was delicious. Claudette does a wonderful job as does her staff. There isn't a meal or drink there that I would not enjoy. Happy to have it nearby.

Claudette is a willing slave to the kitchen. She turns out wonderful food, from pulled pork to buffalo chicken cutlets to fish, to hummus. Everything is just delicious and made by her

Love this great Rockaway Park restaurant just down the block from the beach. The food is all made on the premises by the owner, Claudette, a Rockaway resident. She is a wonderful and creative chef. The food is delicious comfort food. I especially love the meatloaf! And dont forget to take home some of Claudette's hummus. It is special!

Cuisine by Claudette is a wonderful little place that improves each year. Prepared foods, somewhat upscale with a North African flavor (although not exclusively from the Maghreb), are available for take-out. If you or your beach-going buddy are vegetarian, trying to eat healthy, or just not digging the whole beach food scene, this place is for you. In addition to... More
