Cuba's Cookin' presents Cuban food in Aruba. The restaurant is very pleasant and had live music playing. The food was excellent, but it took quite a while to get it. It took even longer to get the check at the end of the meal. Yes,...More

The BBQ ribs with its sause is fabulous. The black beans are so good that you would like more. It is a big portion so two people can eat from it. The ropa vieja is also a good option. At the evening, even though the...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.
