Nice place and decent food. Music was good and added to a nice relaxed atmosphere. Not overly busy when we went so service was quite quick. It's a family run place and our waiter was very young and possibly just being introduced to the business?...More

The mojito was very good along with the empanadas. I was disappointed with the Cuban sandwich. I had to pull half of the pork off because there was so much fat. Very friendly service.

This is a great restaurant to try. They are right by the marina in downtown Aruba. The food was delish. All entrees come with rice, beans and maduros!!

I’m very picky about my food but we went twice just because the cooking was delicious and unique, the environment laid back and staff knowledgeable about their meals served. Highly recommend, go!

Newly located in the Renaissance Marketplace downtown, Cuba's Cookin' has moved with the times just as when Fidel began his march on Havana in 1959. This is what Havana would have looked & felt like.... and when the live music starts up nightly....this is exactly what you would have heard & seen back then. A moment in history brought out in Cuba's food, mojitos, art, culture and dance. A real authentic dinning experience you will take home forever from your trip to Aruba.
