Aside from the fried yuca, which could have been a bit softer, the food was insanely delicious. I would recommend this gem to just about anyone looking for a more than satisfying meal.

Great for groups
I came there on Saturday for brunch to celebrate my birthday with a party of 12. They were so accommodating to the changing number. The service was fantastic. They drinks were great bc each was freshly made and not just pitchers. The cava sangria was amazing!!! Highly recommend this place for food, service and great location!!

Amazing night in cuba
Went on a Sunday to have brunch and it was amazing. It was quiet the time we went yet the experience was great. All the servers were very welcoming and attentive. The food was just delicious. Went with a small group and seating was good not to tight not to far apart. Even when it started to get busy the servers were still attentive and the experience was just great and honestly I haven't enjoyed a day out in a very long time that I would recommend this place to anyone!

Had dinner here with a group
Had dinner here with a group of 11 for a bachelorette. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful throughout the night. Even though our group was late and extra people showed up, we had no problems. We brought our own cake and they cut/served it for a small fee. All the food and drinks were delicious. Faves- lechon and mora picante.

Food was very good, service
Food was very good, service was great and attentive and accommodating, and the Happy Hour specials were a VERY good deal! This is a little hidden gem - always saw the store front and figured it was a little local bar, but the menu had good choices and the food was delicious. Needing to be near the Skirball Center, I cannot think of a better place to hang out and enjoy some good food and drink!

We had a nice experience with a large group with kids. The chicken empanadas were a bit dry but we enjoyed our lunch very much.

Favela Cubana Chapter 1
First experience with Cuban cuisine and an overall good experience. We were a company of 4 people where we went there to have a different dinner than usual. So for my point of view the place is very nice, recommended for the summer time also since the restaurant provides space for those that want to sit outside. The menu is very good with a variety of flavors to taste. We had the Ensalada de Palmito, the famous Guacamole and the Maduros. For main dishes we had the Bistec De Rib eye, Ropa Vieja and the Lechon. The meat in all of the dishes was very soft and well cooked and the combination with the sides that were served was excellent and unique. The drinks were also good just remember to ask about spicy or not, even to drinks too. Enjoy!!!

Last minute planning for 12
Favela Cubana and OpenTable saved my job! Friday night I went onto OpenTable looking for a place in Greenwich Village that would seat 10 people. I saw Favela Cubano and was intrigued, because it is Cuban/Brazilian, which sounded yummalicious. A peek at the menu showed that they had a happy hour till 7, with $6 mojitos, margaritas, and Caiparhinas. WIN WIN! I booked right away, after reading the glowing reviews, and called the restaurant to make sure they could really take 13, they were incredibly gracious and said, "sure, come on in!". Charming, vibrant, bongo stools at the bar, lively, great music... OH, and the food is just perfect. Everyone enjoyed everything. Thanks Favela Cubano (and Open Table), I will definitely be back!!!

Great food in an easy atmosphere
I can recommend this place if you want to have some good Cuban food in a relaxed, easy going atmosphere. The place has a bit of a pub feel to it, but is very relaxed and great food.
