Outstanding experience!
Small family owned restaurant. We ate at the bar. The happy hour mojitos were great, and the bartender was personable, with much to share about the area. Authentic Cuban meals prepared as for family!

When you are looking for the “hidden gem” this is the place. Outstanding authentic Cuban. It’s not the tourist location on the Beach. This is where you come to get legit Cuban food. And service so friendly. Family atmosphere. You have to see it.

We made a reservation in the afternoon. When we got there, we were told that the restaurant had no tables available When we asked what the waiting time would be, we were told that no tables would become vacant that night.

My husband and I had an amazing dinner at Bella Cuba! Great atmosphere, service, and amazing food. Both the pork and chicken dishes were terrific! Filled with flavor and we were thrilled with the side dishes. Great sangria! It is a small place , Good prices, doesn’t feel touristy , feels family and authentic! We will be back- go you won’t be disappointed!

Food was absolutely fabulous as were the drinks. Live Cuban music was very good but a bit loud which made talking a bit difficult. Service was slow but very friendly and the food was worth the wait! Empanadas were great!!

Perfect dinner. No worries at all. The food was awesome and tasty. The blueberry mojito is a perfect drink.

Thanks for the nice time.

And there are only few steps to the beach for a short after dinner walk.

Great locally owned restaurant that provides authentic Cuban fare. We enjoyed the Tostones Three Ways as an appetizer--enough for three (3) people. The Suckling Pig is REALLY good, and our son enjoyed the Churrasco steak--a huge piece of perfectly cooked skirt steak. My wife was thrilled by the Cuban Chicken Stew. All helpings were ample, and they have reasonably priced Chilean wines (for Miami Beach) on the menu. It is a small restaurant, so reservations are advised. Also, they sometimes offer live music (quite good) after 7pm, so be aware if you don't like energetic volume levels. This is a keeper!

Found this restaurant on Google looking for somewhere close to the Fillmore where I would be attending an event. What a great find. All the food, including the appetizers, were delish. The service was fantastic. Extra added bonus, Happy Hour everyday from 4-7P with $5 Mojitos. I highly recommend this place. Nothing super fancy but definitely worth a visit!!

While I had a confirmed reservation, and could clearly see an available table, the hostess said there had been an error and they were fully booked. We were 5 minutes early. Do yourself a favor, and walk a couple of blocks to Yuca for Cuban cuisine with better ambiance and service at a reasonable price point.

We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and were seated immediately. Not sure why it's not communicated on who gets what table, because two waitresses kept coming to take our orders. It took a long time to finally get our food and were quite disappointed with how they tasted. They didn't have much flavor and it took adding hot sauce and salt to make them taste decent. How do you mess up boiled yuca with onions? The drinks tasted good, but had very little alcohol. Overall we were disappointed and will not be going back there.

My reservation was not honored. My wife and I arrived at the restaurant 2 min before scheduled reservation and were told by the staff that there were no tables available. Staff was rude and did not try to accommodate us and make up for their mistake. Also the door to the restaurant was locked.
