“Nice Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Stopped into Cubana on a Saturday evening without a reservation and they were nice enough to accommodate us with a table. Servers were friendly and the menu ha a lot of choices. Settled on the Nachos for 2 (could easily have fed more) with the shredded pork. They were very tasty and loaded with toppings.

“Great stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

Cubana in Greenpoint is really good. I waited at the bar for the others to arrive and I must say that the bar is very pleasant. I'm not a "sit at the bar" type person but this bar was cool - a great selection of whiskies, rum and cocktails.
The place is very vibey and fun - with lots of good looking patrons.
The food and service were good - the nachos are well worth a try.

“Nachos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2013 via mobile

This is where I go when I want Nachos. It is heaven on a plate. I usually have the pineapple juice although the cocktails are not bad. We go frequently and have never been disappointed up to now. The managers are very switched on even though some if the waiting staff are a tad suspect.

“They pour a nice drink”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013 via mobile

The open setting is very inviting. We stopped in for a drink after visiting the Harley store next door. We sat at the bar and ordered our usually. The bartender was very generous with his free pour. Captain and diet double was right on the money as was everyone else's choices. We sat for a few and moved along to another watering hole that offered live music. Would definitely go back and for sure recommend these guys to quench your thirst!
