We have gone in for lunch twice. Both times one of us had the Cuban sandwich and it was perfect both times! I had the soup and we had a special another time. Clean place, friendly helpful staff. Perfect little space for lunch or a great dinner!!

This was my wife and my first taste of authentic Cuban food. We did dinner and took several recommendations from the staff and the table next to us. Not unusual for us to do try new cuisine types. I will say there was some food that hit me just right and others that didn't but the experience was fun. Will... More

We have visited Sabor de Cuba many times. My favorite meal is their Ropa Vieja (Old Clothes). This meal is as close to the real thing as it gets. Brings back very fond memories from my youth when I lived in the Caribbean. The Red Snapper is fantastic as well, but call ahead to make sure it is available when... More

Site of previous white castle burgers and then an Ethiopian restaurant. Sabor de Cuba has now been in this spot for a few years and they have really picked it up. Fairly limited menu but everything is very good. Recent visit with friends - we mostly had sides and appetizers. The red beans are great and the fried cassava is... More

Right in downtown Frederick, the Sabor de Cuba served up great food. We had fresh battered fish with rice, beans and plantain and jumbo shrimp in cream sauce with ride and deep fried plantain patties.

First time eating Cuban food and wasn't disappointed. Service was amazing and the food better yet. We will definitely go back to try other options on the menu.

The food wasn't great the one (and probably only) visit, every dish we had was way too salty. Probably won't visit again.

We have been here multiple times and every time has been excellent. We had been so busy we forgot to make reservations anywhere for Valentine's Day and even though they were busy we were able to be seated within 10 minutes at a table of our choice. We had the sizzling shrimp appetizers, which were delicious. I also had the... More

The menu options were varied and our choices of Bistec de Palomilla and the Red Snapper were excellent. The only downside was our service, for whatever reason, they didn't come back for the second half of the meal. Another server just asked if we needed assistance and provided the end of our service.
