The food here is amazing, and there are a few nice vegetarian options. The grilled vegetable platter was very good. It's always nice to find a restaurant that has a vegetarian option other than pasta! Alfredo was our server, and he was great! We hope...More

We tried Cuba's Cookin' on a wet Sunday in February and enjoyed the live music while waiting for our order to be taken. The place seemed busy but not much was happening. After a good 30 minutes we were eventually approached to place an order....More

We recently had the pleasure of eating at Cuba's Cookin' in Aruba. Our waiter, Walter, was so welcoming and pleasant! He helped us choose the dinners he thought we'd enjoy the most and we weren't disappointed. We ate outside and enjoyed the hustle and bustle...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.
