Description: Hemingway’s Cuba represents more than a restaurant. It’s a culmination of a lifetime goal to share an authentic Cuban restaurant experience with the people of Asheville. Havana native and Founder of Hemingway’s Cuba, Tony Fraga, grew up enjoying exquisite meals with his father at La Floridita in Havana. The restaurant was not only known to be a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, it earned the honor of serving “The Best Daiquiri in the World,” according to Hemingway himself.

Wonderful atmosphere, food and service. We really enjoyed our evening here, and Jay provided excellent, yet not overwhelming service. Will we return!

The view is amazing from the roof top area! That is the only reason I give it an average rating. Food was ok at best. The service and friendliness of staff was horrendous. Our waiter Jonathan seemed irritated that he had to wait to a party of 12. He stayed that way all night. Our table spent over $600 on drinks and food. Not the service I expect from this type of establishment.

Not overly impressed with this place for all of the hype.

Patio tables are empty but “booked”. The bartender was quite nonchalant and made quips at customers (we sat at the bar after being let down by the patio and sitting on the couches)

Good was the food — I enjoyed the mushroom tagliatelle. And we shared a side of tostones which were perfectly executed.

Return? No. Recommend? Possibly, but not for anything spectacular.

We've been here three times now since their opening and each time has been wonderful. Not only is the food authentic but the view of downtown Asheville and the surrounding mountains makes lingering over dinner even better!

Food is subpar at best. Underwhelming, under-seasoned, over cooked, and under-imaginative. Everything we ordered (and we had a 12 top) was bad. No one enjoyed their meals, and multiple things were sent back. Cocktails were ok, pricy for cheap rum drinks. The only thing this place has going for it is the view! Stunning panoramic mountain views with a well designed interior. Service is slow but attentive. Will not return.
