My wife and I have been in the Washington DC area for the last month. We have eaten in some of the so-called cities best restaurants. Felt like some Cuban food in this restaurant was right around the corner from our location. My wife and I both had the roast pork with white beans and rice and fried sweet plantains.... More

A small but friendly restaurant on Park Road . Real great host who helps the non Cuban with selections. Try the Cubano Sandwich with Modelo Especial beer . NO lettuce & tomatoes available ; since (evidently they aren't a stable in Cuba. Get a table near the front for a street view.

A charming neighborhood restaurant, MiCubaCafe is unpretentious yet offers very good Cuban food. We ordered one pork and one chicken dish on the recommendation of our waiter, both house specialties, and both were excellent. The place has a very cool vibe.

The tostones were great, the pulled pork was amazing, the black beans and rice were both delicious. The fiancé had chickpeas LOL. They were good but he may have ordered the wrong dish.

I ordered the Sandwich Cubano, and I LOVE it. I also ordered the one of the chicken entree (I forgot which one), which I felt just ordinary. If you are looking for a cuban sandwich, this is the place to go.

You know when you find one of those places that is so good and so special that you fear popularity will ruin it? This is one of those places. A cute little space, with amazing food at a very reasonable price. Authentic Cuban food, freshly prepared and nicely presented. Warm attentive service. I just hope it stays this good!

One of the few Cuban restaurants in the DC area and it's a total hidden gem. The service is friendly and maybe a little slow sometimes, but no complaints. The food is amazing! All the right flavors, super authentic, just as good as the Cuban restaurants in Miami! Love the Vaca Frita and their empanadas. Healthy portions and cheap prices!... More
