They changed. No fried peppers, no shrimp broth, no guacamole with shrimp. The ropa vieja was okay. The meat was a little dry, no "gravy" to speak of. It tasted like they cooked the meat in a crock pot then sprinkled cumin on it. It wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't raved about this place to family members then... More

Loved their sample "Cuatro" platter that had a Cuban, pulled pork, and a Toston all in one. Came for lunch multiple times during my stay on the island. The owner was attentive and service was satisfactory every time. Looking forward to trying their dinner offerings soon!

The sandwich was delicious and huge--enough for two people, but so good I ate it all myself! Server/owner was delightful!

Authentic, limited menu, and good service, Qubano is located on Hildalgo Ave., the Center of Isla Mujeres village. Have been there several times and will go back

We go to Isla several times a year and have always walked past Qubano but glad we finally stopped in to eat. We've heard such good things about the restaurant but for some reason never ate there. The food was excellent. The waiter made some recommendations and glad we listened to him. Don't miss the hand-cut French fries either. We'll... More

We loved this restaurant and Vivian, the owner. The food is so delicious and there are so many unexpected combinations. If you are gluten free, the sandwiches can all be made with plantains which is ridiculously amazing. Vivian is so sweet and her pets hanging around for free love are a bonus. She even invited my group of friends back... More

This was my first experience at this restaurant, my daughter, 2 year old grandson and me. I ask for gluten free options, Vivian was so nice and there were quite a few options for me. I decided to go with whatever she suggested...Cuban Lasagna. The noodle substitute was mashed plantains that were quick fried. The meat was mildly spiced and... More

Everything we had (sandwich sampler, Cuban lasagna, Havana pork) was excellent. We are stuffed. The service and setting were equally great. Highly recommend.
