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.

Second night in Aruba and it will be hard to beat this place. Everyone’s meal was perfect. The Ceviche and Calamari appetizers were great. Service was quick, informative, and fun. You need to add this restaurant to your list.

Delicious guac and plantain chips! My vegetarian entree was fabulous. My husband ordered ribs, he said they were awesome. The Latin soundtrack when we first arrived was fun, but the atmosphere became even better when the live Latin band started to play. Great location near...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.
