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.

    I’ve been going here for many years, even before they remodeled and expanded the size. Good food.

    We have visited Cuba de ayer on numerous occasions. My go to dish has always been the Lechon Asado. This time I found it to be dry and disappoining. We will continue to return and perhaps expand our choices.

    Simply put, Cuba de Ayer has the best and most authentic Cuban food in the Maryland suburbs of DC. I have been a regular there for over a decade and the food is consistently outstanding. I’m a big fan of their Vaca Frita. My wife loves their tomato-braised oxtail. Their house-made hot sauce is a must if you like it spicy. Good sangria and mixed drinks. A tres-leches cake to die for. Prices have gone up, but they are consistent with the market. I’ve tried Cuban food at other DMV restaurants and I prefer the taste of Cuba de Ayer. The portions are ample. The service is friendly and responsive. It’s a popular restaurant, and it is popular for groups, which can be a bit noisy at times. But it is the sound of happy people enjoying themselves, and one can still hear one’s own conversations. Bottom line: Cuba de Ayer is my go-to restaurant for Cuban food, it’s good value for the money, and it never disappoints.
