Come enjoy the tropical tastes of Cuba! Authentic home style Cuban cuisine where our customers feel as though they are eating home cooked meals that would be found in Grandma's kitchen. Cuba de Ayer is an ideal escape for a delicious cup of Cuban coffee, a Cuban grilled sandwich, followed up by something sweet like a slice of tres leches cake. mmm.... Bring your friends, family or come alone-strangers are simply friends we've yet to meet.

    Great authentic Cuban Resturant. Being Cuban and from Miami, it is hard to find food that reminds you of home. Food was delicious. Croquettas were great. Moros, pork, and chicken a la plancha were seasoned right. The yuca needed a little bit of more mojo but other than that it was good. Feel the food is a little pricey. $4 for a pastelito is too much. I would definitely come again even though it was a 20 minute drive for us.

    The food was delicious! Our server, Jennifer, was knowledgeable, funny and gave us space to enjoy catching up while still being available to check in when needed.

    Love the new Selection on the Menu ( Steak, Shrimp and Salmon) you should put that on the menu and keep it there. Also, you should have a smoking section for Cigars.

    Food, service and background music was outstanding. The noise level was pleasant once a large group finished their meal and left.

    Great local restaurant for Latin/Cuban cuisine. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because some of the entrees lacked a lot of flavor and it was necessary to add the hot sauce. But the servers were very nice and attentive.
