We were pointed to this restaurant by one of our hotel's employees. He was right on. Delicious food cooked fresh. We order the seafood soup and mixed seafood. Both were delicious. Prices are very accessible. The server was very nice with us. This is a Pop & mom restaurant. Nothing fancy. I would eat there again.

We ate here twice while staying at a 5 star resort in MA with our kids (10,12,14) and loved it. It will take a 1/2 hour to get your food because it is all being cooked fresh in La Cubanita's open kitchen. The owner is very nice and speaks some English. We watched her cooked and learned how to make a tasty yucca dish. The stuffed calamari is great as is the casada plate (the "typical costa rican faire), which is $5 (calamari was $9.) The friend yucca was everyone's fav! So save yourself some money, eat some great food (lunch and dinner) and get a little culture.

Very clean. Simple food. The guacamole was the best that I've ever tried. We had lunch for two with the guacamole as apettizer, as main entree we had shrimp stuffed calamary in a sauce that was a bit rich for my taste but edible, and a whole fried fish that was plain, meaty and just delicious. The food was freshly made practically in front of you.To drink three cokes. All that for a total of $33 US. They do not take credit cards, only colones or dollars. The restaurant is in the front part of the owner/waitress/cook's house and it's kept extremily clean including the small bathroom that was spotless. It's very easy to get to, there's a main plaza that is a football soccer field witha church across the street. Stand with your back to the church and looking at the football field. To your right hand side there is a walking passage, take it and walk to the end of the field, as soon as it ends there will be a street, turn right and keep walking a few feet. There will be a little bridge over a creek, after you cross it the restaurant will be on your right hoand side and yes there is a sign over with the name "La cubanita".

Food was okay, but the guac was outrageous!! This restaurant had a very "at home" feel, and the price was right.

My wife and I love hole-in-the-wall places and this is a great one. It's a simple family restaurant and while you don't go for ambiance, it's super clean. The Cuban food is outstanding and dinner for two with two rounds of drinks was below $25 (usd)
