“Perfect for our first dinner of 2014!”

Ceviche sampler. Roast pork entree. Glasses of wine. The only thing that could've made the evening any better would've been if they had brought us some Cuban cigars and invited us to smoke right then and there!

As it was, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, as we always do at Alma de Cuba!

“Great Atmosphere and even better Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We have eaten here a couple of times and enjoy the Latin chic decor and the tasty menu. The roasted pork is incredible and the arroz con pollo is also very good. The service is always spot on and the cigar dessert is the perfect ending to a memorable meal.

“So yummy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

My colleagues and I enjoyed a really nice dinner at Alma de Cuba. The flavors in the food were all novel and tasty. The food was fresh and the service very accommodating. We also really enjoyed the drinks.
Just note that the portion sizes are HUGE. So, you can definitely share the main courses!
