Dined @ Bella Cuba for dinner on the recommendation of the hotel’s concierge. Called regarding a wonderful happy hour they offer for $5 Mojito’s and margaritas from 4-7. Arrived at 6:30, was greeted warmly and ordered a Mojito (even asked if it was still happy hour ). Food was delicious with exception of tres leches dessert which was sugary sponge cake served with canned whipped cream. When bill arrived, was charged $15 for mojito. Upon inquiring, Waiter said there was nothing they could do about it after bill was rung up. Asked to come back and “he’ll make it up” then. Don’t think so .. should’ve made it right then. First and last time

Awesome food and drinks. Everything was delicious. Service was slow, they didn’t seem to have enough wait staff to handle how busy it was.

The food was fresh, homemade and used quality ingredients. Small plates and drinks were good. I’ll be chasing the flavors of the suckling pig with yuca smothered in mojo sauce until my end. Cuban chicken stew was fantastic. Fried pork chunks and Cuban sammy not so much.
Service was pathetic, even for Miami. Several tables walked out after being sat and not receiving service after 10-15 minutes. The restaurant isn’t that big either!

Outstanding. We traveled to Florida and I found this fabulous restaurant on line. The reviews were all excellent so we gave it a try. Everything about Bella Cuba was incredible. The staff is excited to have you join them and very attentive. The food is delicious and fresh. The empanadas were definitely the highlight! I would highly recommend!!

Food was excellent. Service was good. We arrived early because we read great things about the happy hour. When the bill came, they did not honor the happy hour prices. They said that we didn’t request it. ???? Excellent experience otherwise.

We were vacationing in Miami for a week and wanted to try Cuban food for the first time and read good reviews for Bella Cuba. I am so glad we chose them because the food was absolutely amazing. It is now a “must visit” restaurant on our future trips!

We were looking for authentic Cuban dining in an informal setting, and Bella Cuba really served it up. Other diners were all locals, and the food and service were excellent. Highly recommend for a great meal, reasonably priced.

Graciela was simply amazing to us and our son. She was very polite and went above and beyond for us. Food was superb, loved my bistec with onions and garlic sauce. Ask for mayoketchup for the tostones. My son who's ia picky eater enjoyed his fries and yellow rice. I was extremely happy with our anniversary dinner and had a great chat with our server.

We visited on Sunday (6/28/2020) and it seemed like they just reopened after COVID because the head waitress was training a few others. They were all quick and attentive. So many tasty cocktails included in the bottomless besides mimosas! (Sangria, Cuban mule, and lots of juices to sub for OJ in the mimosa). Cuban sandwich and drunk chicken with beans and avocado salad were all super tasty. Would highly recommend!

We were in South Beach for 5 days and had several great meals but Bella Ciba was the best food that we had while there. Wish we would have found it sooner so we could enjoyed it several time. The empanadas were out of this world!
