Had dinner here while staying at the Renaissance ocean view hotel. I’m not familiar with Cuban food but I did enjoy my meal here. Server Alfredo was very helpful and knew the menu well. He even offered to get us a cab after dinner, which...More

A great place to eat if staying at the Renaissance hotel in Aruba. Excellent cuban food; the sampler plate which offered a little bit of 3 favorites is highly recomended. THe portions are quite large.

Great Cuban food. Ropa Vieja and the empanadas were my favorites. Patio has live music in the evening and just a generally relaxed atmosphere. Great location near the marina in the Renaissance Plaza. Would definitely recommend if you like Cuban food.

Three if us went. Two had the grouper and said it was very good. I went with the barbecue ribs recommended by the waitress. They were tasty but weren’t the easiest to get off the bone. Service was very good.

I was told by the guy who sat me that the ceviche was fresh and that I should try it. He said it was the best he’s ever had and that it was clean healthy protein. After talking with him for a minute I found...More

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.
