Van Van Cuban Cafe
Wonderful food and great service!
Delicious food and mojitos. It’s in a strip mall, so ambiance is not what you should expect, but the food was great and very reasonably priced.
This was our second dinner at VanVan which speaks for itself. There food is authentic Cuban with complex, interesting flavors. I was concerned that dishes would be hot pepper spicy but that is not the case....just very flavor-filled, delicious food. We will be back.....
From the moment we entered, we were greeted like “one of the family”. Everyone was so friendly and explained the Cuban food entrees. We started with the Rellenos filled with pork and ground beef. We preferred the pork ones. I had the chunks of pork sautéed in Cuban spices and my husband had the very tender slices of skirt steak. Both were delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant.
My wife and I had 2 different pork dishes which were exceptional. Always great service with a smile. Great family operated Cuban restaurant. This was our third visit and we are looking forward to going back.
We had reservations for 7pm. We were told there were no tables inside, so we sat outside on the sidewalk next to the parking lot (people parking, shining their headlights) and Tamiami Trail (very noisy). We told waiter we had a concert to go to at 8:30, we left at 8:15! Lots of wait staff, slow service or slow kitchen or both! Food was good and portions were fairly generous.
Fantastic Cuban food. This is now the best place in Naples for Cuban food in my opinion. The Churrasco was perfect and the Chimichurri sauce was outstanding. Definitely coming back.
Great service and food enjoyed with family
Nice staff and service. Loved the picadillo.
Amazing, family owned restaurant with excellent service and authentic Cuban cuisine!
We are certain this is the best Cuban food in Naples! We will return often.
Genuine Cuban food, prepared superbly. One of us had the chicken, which she couldn't finish, but had to take home because it was so good. Pork was also spectacular. It is located in a very nice strip mall and even has some outdoor seating. Service was prompt, polite and very attentive.
Good food, good service, good value, good location!
The food was good, but I was disappointed that there were no vegetarian entrees offered. Yes, I know Cuban food is primarily meat-based, but couldn't they offer at least one vegetarian entree for those of us who'd like to accompany meat-eating friends, but who choose another option?
We love the food, service, and quaintness. A great place to eat and have a good glass of wine.
Very nice restaurant. Small and located in a small mall.
But the food was great. Appetizers were really tasty. Pork and beef dishes were well seasoned
Very nice first meal for us in Naples
Excellent food! Maybe the best mojito we have ever had! Impeccable service. They definitely need to expand the space or move location. It was packed by 6:30 pm.
This was our first visit to Van Van Cuban Cafe, we decided to go after seeing the positive review in the newspaper. We were not disappointed! My wife had the Bistec De Pollo with yellow rice and fried yuccas as her sides. I had the Ropa Vieja with sweet plantains and moros. We also split a bottle of Malbec. For dessert we had the Flan and the Tres Leches.
All of the food was outstanding, the service was excellent and it was a truly great experience; I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Delicious food and great service. Yummy!!!
Excellant authenic Cuban food. It's the real deal. Everything was delicious! Service was good and the restaurant has a cozy atmosphere with huge photos of Cuba past and present on the walls. This gem is a must stop in Naples!
Best Cuban Sandwich ever
it was very cold that night and there was no outdoor seating. we had to wait awhile for a large table and we the last ones in there. the screwed up our order and forgot the appetizers an it was pretty cold in there and they were too busy closing up. it was not a pleasant experience and not very reasonable. they should have been more accomodating . we would have been of at culvers.
Everything about this restaurant is extremely good.
The food was excellent, seasoned well and plentiful. Service was at times slow but just so. Would go back on next trip and recommend it highly
Fantastic find! Really good Cuban food! Will be back!
First visit and hopefully many more. It tastes just like mama’s homemade criolla cocina. Being Cuban anerican it is as good if not better than Calle 8 food!
Bienvenidos a Naples!
The pork dishes were excellent. Wish they had veggies on the menu as a side option.
It was our valentines date
Good but not amazing. Strip mall location. Probably not go again.
A real find in upscale Naples, this small restaurant serves food as good or better than anything in Miami’s Little Havana.
Great meal. Excellent service. Will definite dine there again.
We had black beans and rice, Cuban sandwich and avocado salad, the best cuban restaurant in Naples for sure. Thank you Emily.!!
Great Cuban food in a central Naples location. Staff is warm and friendly and the food never disappoints.
A wonderful casual and delicious dinner. We ended up having two appetizers . Both of these were huge and enough to fill two pretty hungry women. The Mojito’s were delicious. Great value and free parking in the back!
This restaurant has only been open 4 months and it’s making a great name for itself in Naples, Florida. A community that has probably more restaurants per square mile of every size and variety than most places in America. The staff could not be any more accommodating. Very friendly family atmosphere, great food in an exceptionally spotless environment. Our server was Myriel who was very helpful in every regard. I had the Half Cuban Chicken entree that was so tender, juicy and very tasty. My wife had a wonderful Garlic Shrimp dish that she raved about all the way home. The Flan was perfect as was the Tres Leches cake for desert. My wife and I loved this place and we will be back again shortly.
We were served by Myriel (sp?) and he gave us fabulous recommendations. Everything was delicious but the plantains and flan were amazing. Honestly, even the rice & beans were exceptionally good and authentic. This place is a treasure.
Excellent Cuban food with great attentive service in a simple cafe type dining room. Great flavors and good value.
Excellent food and warm, friendly service.
Food was only so-so. I had what was supposed to be a shredded beef dish, but turned out to be an extremely thin slice of some kind of beef that was very chewy. The other 2 in our party were not impressed either. Would not go back.
Excellent food and service! The staff were very attentive, polite and eager to please. Cuban cuisine is somewhat new to our group and all was explained very well.
