Description: The romantic Milieu of Cuba effortlessly transports you from Manhattan to Havana. Cuba offers live music and a menu filled with delicious traditional cuisine. The restaurant offers a fascinating and charming escape to its own "Little Havana on Thompson Street".
Reviewed 10 August 2018

On a quintessential, tree-lined street in Greenwich Village full of small ethnic restaurants, Cuba is a standout. It offers terrific, authentic food at moderate prices. The place is very small but tastefully decorated. Brick walls feature large paintings of scenes of Havana. There is a comfortable looking bar in the middle of the dining room. A unique feature is the gentleman rolling cigars near the front door. For drinks we had a classic mojito and a glass of red sangria. Both excellent. My husband had the mahi mahi. I had the picadillo-stuffed potatoes and fried sweet plantains. All delicious.
I would give Cuba a five, except for the noise level, which is very high.

Went here with some friends and we made a reservation through open table and although we were a party of 6 and open table had us down for 2, they were able to accommodate us. Now that’s service! Our server Julio, was informative and very good. The Appetizers were great and so were our entrees. We ordered the empanadas, tostones and croquettes for appetizers and for our main meals we had Rosa Vieja, Vaca Frita, Oxtail with yucca and frijoles negros with arroz. We ate so much that we left will very full stomachs. Thank goodness we are walking afterwards. Wow-was it good!
If you are in the area and in the mood for Cuban food you gotta try this place. You will be pleased!

We dropped into this place and it was almost full. Great and cost place. Service is excellent but the food was average. Not a dish you will remember. A bit pricy as well
