Worth a visit. I had the fish with onions and my wife had the fish tacos. If there were an option for good I probably would have given that rating rather than very good but it's certainly better than average.

My husband and I were walking around downtown trying to decide where to eat and randomly decided to eat here to try Cuban food. However neither of us ended up getting Cuban food really. I got the fish tacos which were large but just okay. I got better fish tacos down the street at Lola Valentina's. My husband got some... More

Qubano is definitely a tourist restaurant. Vivian (owner) has been all over the world and understands hospitality. Everything we tried was excellent and the prices were favorable considering it's in the tourist zone.

Stopped a couple of times for sandwiches to go. The slider sampler was a great way to taste test. We came back for our favorites. Homemade chips were delicious. The owner was very gracious and helpful.

We love Vivian at Qubanos! She always has her recommendations and we always use them. There were 8 of us and we all enjoyed what we had. Would go back daily if we had the chance!

We ate at several places during our 1 week stay in Isla Mujeres. On the last night we all voted on where to spend our last meal. No questions asked, we all said Qubano!! We had the Toston sandwich(made with plantain instead of bread) absolutely delicious. The Cuban sand which, pulled pork, and the chicken cordon blue. Home made fries... More

Good lunch food with giant portions. My two young teenagers didn't have many choices, and they settled on fried chicken. More authentic dishes served- fresh fish. We could see them preparing the fish off in the corner. My friend had a fish soup and loved it. We were able to grab a couple Cuban cigars to take home for our... More

Yes the food is truly amazing but it's Vivienne's charm that makes the place. Go and keep going here.

We have spent the last two days on Isla and have YET to find a good restaurant, until Qubanos!!! And by a good restaurant I simply mean some food with seasoning and flavor, we are backpackers with very easy to please standards, we truly are not picky, so it was somewhat of a shock to us how poor the quality...
