I'd been here previously for lunch but never before for dinner. Went this evening with my wife and a couple of friends and everyone was thrilled with my recommendation. We ordered four different dishes - two chicken with rice, beans, and plantains, one beef, and...More

Decent Mojitos and huge portions. Friendly wait staff. Tried the Habenero sauce and liked it enough that we bought a bottle to take home.

If you are looking for Cuban food, look no further. This is the best in town, but is not cheap. I love the batido de mamey (Mamey Shake) and the tostónes. Go ahead and try them.

Cuba de Ayer is an authentic Cubano restaurant in an unassuming location in Burtonsville, about half way between Washington and Baltimore off Rte 29. The menu selection is quite large with a wide selection of Cuban dishes and drinks. The Cuban pork dish (Pernil) with...More
