“One of our Favorites for Many Years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

Cabana El Rey is a Latin fusion restaurant we judge the best in Palm Beach County among many. Every dish is outstanding - and we have dined here many times over the years. We especially recommend the paella, the plantain chips, the guacamole, the Cabana salad, and the sweet plantains. Today we enjoyed the pisco sours, and shared excellent coconut shrimp, Cuban empanadas, and ropa vieja toston. But whatever you have at Cabana, Carlo and his entire staff will cook really well, present beautifully, and serve enthusiastically.

“Very Good Cuban”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Definitely an upscale Cuban restaurant with very good food and service. Always busy.

Everything is well prepared. I always get the Mariquitas,thinly sliced plantains cooked until crispy, served with garlic mojo and avocado salsa to start and the Mariscadas shrimp, clams mussels sea scallops and salmon simmered in a tomato garlic broth.

No manner what you order the food is always very good and well prepared.

“Just okay.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

Went there last week for Latin food. The service was slow. When the food eventually came, it didn't live up to my expectations. I didn't think it was (for the price) better than Pollo Tropical.

“Amazingly Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Wow, this was so good. Fresh, unique, delicious. I loved the madura mashed. The plantains were so yummy. The tamales were also very delicious. I enjoyed cafe con leche after the meal; which was also very good. We couldn't have asked for better service. The restaurant ambiance is perfect for romantic couples or large families. The downtown district was so quant- we really enjoyed walking around town after the meal. Parking was convenient. Must go!!!
