When in Melbourne, I could eat at the Cuban Island Restaurant every day. The food is so authentic and delicious. Fresh fish as if it was brought from the sea to my plate. Everything is great. Reasonably priced, I highly recommend this restaurant.

Thought I was back in Cuba with the old cars outside. We had seen the place traveling up and down A1A and couldn't pass it up when friends also recommended it. Small place, thus as other reviews state maybe get their early or go with regulars that can get reservation. The mojiotes were OK but the food was excellent. I... More

We stopped here after unsuccessfully searching for a good, Oceanside restaurant to dine at. Our meals were delicious, clearly prepared with care. I am always on the lookout for a quality sandwich, and my Cubano Noche was one of the best I've had! Delicious all around!

We ate here a few times and were served delicious entrees each time. The service was friendly and the portions well balanced. I recommend their sea food and pasta, paella and Spanish wine. The ambiance was good with pleasant guitar music in the background. A lovely place to visit!

Since my husband is Cuban, we just had to stop. The restaurant is located in front of a hotel. Parking seems to be an issue, initially, but signs are posted to use the hotel parking, as well. We walked in and noticed a booming business. We had to sit at the bar, right near the door, but we were comfortable.... More

This was my first visit. Went with some friends from work who had been there before. We were on our lunch hour, and I felt the service was extremely slow. It took forever to be waited on after we were seated. Then we waited about 30 minutes for our food to arrive. I ordered a salad, it was very delicious,... More

Cuban sandwich was almost too much to eat with black beans side. Beans were nicely flavored as well! Service was a bit slow out of the kitchen since we were the only active guests when we arrived at 3:00 PM - turn over time, maybe? Will definitely be back to try other meal type menu items. Owner and staff were... More

My sister recommended this place. It is small with no atmoshere, but absolutely great food and service. We ate there on a Monday night. it's a small place so come early as there was a line waiting by 6:00 p.m. Super seafood with a Cuban touch. This was probably one of the best meals I have had in months. Reasonably... More

I've been looking for a good Cuban restaurant and we have found it! It's a small place that you would not notice unless you knew where to look BUT well worth it. Service was excellent and there was 4 adults and a toddler. The night we where there, 12/21, around 6 PM was not busy when we arrived but by... More

This family style restaurant is as good as it gets outside of cuba!! Authentic dishes prepared fresh and served "family style". This easy to spot restaurant with old cars outside (as in cuba) has adequate parking and accepts credit cards. The food is tasty with a nice selection. Lunch & dinner with a siesta break in mid afternoon. Attentive service.... More
