We started out with two mojitos which both were delicious. Ordered an appetizer of mariquitas which were amazing especially with the garlic mojo dipping sauce. The Paella Valenciana was delicious along with the array of sides we ordered. The service was great and the server made some great suggestions. The restaurant wasn't busy and we were able to get in and out in about 45 minutes.

There are 2 locations, Queens and manhattan, i have been to both and i have to say The Queens location is way better, the food is good and the sangria is the best i have tasted,,
Manhattan location is ok, food was ok, the sangria wan not that good, parking is bad, tables are very close,,looks like they try to squeeze more tables in that tiny space

The restaurant was at first okay. Until there was a leak and I mean literally water was continuously coming out. My friend and I were able to move, but after the move to another area we were ready to go. We told the manager about it and he didn't do anything about it. I will not ever step foot in that establishment again.

shopping near bloomingdales with a friend who suggested this place....not something i would have initially chosen as it did not have that big restaurant entrance.....once inside was greeted by a cozy environment and wonderful paintings

my friend was raving about her cuban sandwich..i ordered the empanadas which are THE BEST EVER...the rice was fluffy and favorful...the beans very tasty and the guacomole well done....i topped it all off with an excellent flan.....our waitress Rosa added to the charm and service of the restaurant...the only recommendation i would have to make had to do with the margarita.....too sweet so i had to send it back but i was immediately corrected....i have a family member who is a bartender at a high end location so i know a good margarita...wish it had been at the level of the food....but i would definitely go back

The Cabana Nuevo Latino Restaurant on New York’s Upper East Side is a festive place with a very extensive menu. To start, the Margaritas were refreshing and had ample tequila. Our appetizers consisted of delicious Ceviche Mixto, fresh shrimp, octopus, scallops and calamari marinated in aji amarillo, hot rocoto peppers, garlic, lime juice and cilantro, served with assorted viandas and maiz tostad; fried fresh calamari; and an Aquacate Salad of fresh avocados, cilantro, plum tomatoes and red onions tossed in a lime cilantro vinaigrette.

For entrees, we had the Mariscada Lobster, Paella Valenciana, Coco Cabana Pollo and Mara y Tierra (Surf & Turf). Each dish was well prepared and served with yellow rice and black beans. Dining at Cabana was like being with an old friend who welcomed you to their cocina. It was a Latin American dining experience that made New York more enriched by the variety of its cuisine
