I recommend you to try the chicken stew. It's really delicious. It taste like home cooked meal. You are going to listen to good music and delicious food

From the "Cuban" sandwich to other traditional foods, including some that may not be on the menu, but can be requested and may be available, this comfortable, homey place is a find. The food is well-prepared and the portions are substantial. Specialty drinks, cocktails and sangria, are available and well made. Be aware that most, if not all, Miami Beach... More

After going to 1957 Havana the night before we thought we would try and find a smaller (more authentic??) restaurant before we headed back to Toronto from South Beach. After walking along Lincoln we spotted this small off the "strip" Cuban restaurant. I chose the authentic Cuban sandwich which was amazing. As you can see from the picture I took... More

Tried this restaurant this weekend as have heard many good comments on it and was pleasantly surprised, since the moment I arrived the hostess was attentive and fast. The waiter was quick, made some recommendations and brought the dishes well timed. The food? Excellent like the service! Good size portions and reasonable prices. Recommended for any occasion!

Visiting from Washington DC area. Normally don't eat pork but I temporarily halted the ban to experience Cuban food. We were staying around the corner at the Hampton Inn, which was a great experience too, and wanted somewhere close by. The front desk suggested Bella Cuba, so we went. They did not disappoint. I must say nobody does pork like... More

Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday and were blown away by how good the food was. Delicious, authentic, and reasonably priced. Excellent service as well. Only downside was that they added an automatic 15% gratuity and we only had 4 in our party. We would have easily tipped more than 15% but don't agree with the principle of them... More

This was a very down-to-earth, family-run Cuban restaurant near Lincoln Road. It was much more casual than we expected but the prices were terrific and the service as good. Plus, the food was EXCELLENT. Very pleased!!

this location was referred to us by a local working at the hotel we were staying in. Needless to say it did not disappoint. It is outside the tourist trap area which made it nicer as well. Great Cuban food, nice portions and very reasonable prices..nothing fancy just a local hang out.
