Love the food, drink, and atmosphere. Bright and decorated in a very artistic manner. Their Mojitos are outstanding and not sickeningly sweet. Perfect. We've tried most of the appetizers. The Empanaditas Olga is a favorite. Also thoroughly enjoyed the Tamal en Hoya, Mariquitas con Mojo, Yuca Relleno, and the Avacado salad. We also enjoyed Mi Tierra and the Bandeja Cubano's.... More

Pros: Great location. Cozy interiors. Staff was very helpful. Torta de la Abuelita (Granny's cake) was the only food I really liked here, the rest was so-so. Cons: Food was generally OK. Same sauce was used in every meal we ordered so we never felt a difference/variety. Better order the Combo only and that is going to give you an... More

Stopped in with my wife recently since we just moved to a nearby neighborhood. We were not disappointed! Service was fast and efficient. The food was delicious although a little pricey, we thought. Decor very inviting with interesting and pleasant art. Clearly authentic Cuban cuisine. I'm certain this will not be the last time we eat here.

A great selection for 5 of us including a toddler. Waiter was very accommodating to the toddler. Mojito Grandes were excellent as were the Ceviche, gambas,Calamari, Cuban sandwich and bread. Somewhat pricey but everything in the DC area is.

I went here for lunch with co-workers and since we have limited time decided to order ahead. In about 8-10 minutes or our arrival the food was served! We had a great time and the food was delicious. I had not eaten here in about three years and was delighted to re-discover it. The dishes most of us ordered were... More

Friendly service, pleasant but empty atmosphere on a weeknight, looked clean. Food was OK, had mixed seafood dish and the sauce was a little too salty not very well seasoned.

We visited Cuba a while ago. Cuban's has way better food than we had in Cuba, plus the staff are just as welcoming and pleasant as the Cubans on the island. The art on the walls is very reminiscent of the places we visited. The paella and other seafood dishes are superb. Several of the people we've brought have enjoyed... More

I stumbled at lunchtime upon this restaurant on a side street in downtown Silver Spring and decided to give it a try. The interior is lots of fun with brightly colored walls and paintings of Cuban scenes. They've got daily lunch specials and a good selection of typical Cuban fare. I ordered the daily fish special (tilapia in a garlic... More

Fun restaurant in downtown Silver Spring.Nice atmosphere with pictures of Cuban street scenes. Excellent Mojitos and large portions! The garlic bread is a great appetizer, not too garlicy! Be sure to try the combo sampler (Mi Tierra).
