We enjoyed our authentic Cuban meal. From Mojitos to Pork chunks to Ropa Vieja. Our waiter Luis was very helpful suggesting items from The Menu. Will definitely return next time in Aruba

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.
