Cubanitas is an authentic Cuban eatery in the heart of Milwaukee. The casual restaurant serves lunch and dinner and has a full-service off-site catering menu, as well. Guests can enjoy valet parking and then relax in the simple dining room that allows all of the focus to be put on the Latin American and Cuban food. At Cubanitas, the house special mojito is a must.
Try empanadas filled with meat or vegetarian options, a classic Cuban sandwich or an entr�e of tilapia, roasted pork and more at Cubanitas. The daily specials include Cuban post roast, a seafood of the day and a weekend brunch menu.
Everything was most excellant at Cubanita's. The food is quite authentic, good, and reasonably priced. Not to mention the service is always super-friendly. A place, that by all manner, is exceptional.
The only way to improve or let's say enhance is to have more authentic old Cuban music playing. Maybe even, add on to the space somehow, someway and add a dancing area.
We are big fans of Cubinitas - and our server was incredibly sweet. The hostess was very very rude - so I would encourage you to review her conduct and how she works with customers - she is the complete opposite of the rest of the staff.
Excellent food though a bit noisy. Hard to hear over the bartender wacking limes! Pork was outstanding.
Went recently for the first time for lunch and I had the Cuban. It was really good! The Mojitos were good as well. I'm normally not. Guacamole fan but there house-made guacamole was really good. I definitely would go back. Btw, our service was impeccable!!! I recommend this place!
Cubanita's is a must when visiting downtown Milwaukee. The atmosphere, service, food and drinks are second to none. I am always treated like family when I arrive. I especially enjoyed the Shrimp special and the Tres Leches cake. The music helps sooth the soul and makes you fell like you are in the Caribbean.
Nice venue, but the best food here is bar food (plantain chips & guacamole). If you are expecting an authentic Cuban restaurant, you will be disappoined. It may be okay for lunch, but not for dinner. At an early seating time, with only 3 tables of diners, the kitchen could not manage to produce a hot plate of food in a timely fashion. Our meals arrived lukewarm, tasting like the food had been (under) reheated in a microwave.
One of the best places in Milwaukee to tantalize your tastebuds in amazing flavors wrapped in simple homestyle elegance. The waitstaff makes you feel relaxed and welcome providing just enough attention with out being overwhelming. It's a must do when in Milwaukee.
Great service, great food (amazing guac!) and an awesome location. The drinks were also great- best mojto I've ever had. Fun place for dinner with friends before a night out!
We visited Cubanitas to celebrate my daughter's birthday. It was VERY quiet on a Monday night, as we were the only people in the restaurant. But the food was very good and helped my daughter re-live her recent trip to Cuba. Our waitress was from Cuba and very friendly. We had a lovely evening.
They serve the best pork!!! Loved the plantains and guacamole. Best Mojito's too! Coconut cream pie was fabulous.
