The Best MOJITO drink you can ever have. – First time I had the Mojito drink was in this place. Believe me, it was GREAT! I love the plantains chips too. In fact, I love everything about CUBA. Great place to go to.
Don't waste your money please – Do not come here please!!. The food is average, but the worst thing is that after we were done having dinner, and we were having drinks, the people there tried to "bribe" us to give up our table so that somebody else could come and have dinner there (it's all about the money guys!!). But that is not the worst, once we were forced to go to the bar for one "free" round of drinks "the bribe" (like if we were that cheap), the restaurant people duped the table next to us by offering ("bribing") the head of family (which was celebrating his 60th birthday and just got a rolex watch from his family there), a "free" cigar to free up the table (it's all about bringing more money, again!!). I was really offended by this behavior. I would think that as long as you are consuming and showing good behavior, no one would ask you to leave (I was so wrong!!) . Unfortunately that is not the case. My mother-in-law is Cuban and she was pretty offended when we told her the kind of treatment we got at Cuba. I honestly could not believe that a "Cuban" restaurant would treat customers so poorly. Save your time and your liver, there are better Cuban places in the city where you will get top quality treatment and you won't be kicked out just because of greediness and poor spirit. It's so sad to see something like this happening in here. It's really a shame.
GREAT! – We had a 15+ surprise dinner party at Cuba Restaurant and it was, by far, the best choice we could have made. The staff helped plan every minor detail days in advance, the food was incredible, drinks were mixed perfectly, and service was impeccable. Everyone left impressed and I speak on their behalf when I say that I feel we will be returning soon. I highly recommend Cuba if you want to plan larger dinner parties, and feel that the atmosphere and service staff will do just an amazing job if you're there with only 2 people - all you need are the empanadas, chorizos, and mojitos! Great Village spot, highly recommend...
Best Bar In Manhattan – I love going to Hemingway's. The drinks are great and the atmosphere is even better. It looks like a real old bar from the turn of the century. The crowd is always freat and the food is to die for. I always have an amazing time when I go to Hemingway's Hideaway.
