Its authenticity unmatched, Sabor de Cuba crashes the emerging Frederick dining scene with aromas and flavors that evoke the island's rich culinary heritage. Owners Irieska Caetano and Angel Gattorno bring enthusiasm and vision to their cozy new digs in the heart of the downtown area. As chef, Gattorno draws on closely held family recipes to enhance a menu of traditional Cuban favorites. Dine in a family-friendly environment where the service is as first class as the meal itself.

Simple food, complex flavors. Is such a thing even possible?
At Sabor de Cuba, we think yes.

OpenTable Diner (Washington DC)
3.0  Dined on February 17, 2018

We decided to try this place based on a recent ‘top-10’ list of sort that included it.

Even though we had made a reservation we ended up with a table with a view of the bathroom traffic, which was not optimal. The server was in so much of a rush (one of those that avoids eye contact as he walks by!) that the hospitality factor was lost. Menu prices for entrees are a bit on the high side, considering the ‘ok’ quality of the food and the ambience of faux plants and modest set up. What we ordered were the pricier items on the menu yet they tasted bland and the meat portions of them (beef and pork) were dry and less than prime.

Frederick has a number of good eateries but unfortunately our experience wouldn’t put this place among one of them.

Was a nice resturant with availablility to reserve a table the night before Valentines day. Resturant Staff were nice and accomodating. The food was excellent! Service was gracious. Prices were reasonable. The only negative comment was that the table we were seated at was outside of the kitchen. The noise was not constant but 5 to 6 times during the meal there was a starteling banging which did make us jump.

Authentic Cuban food, very delicious. The wait staff was very accommodating. Really enjoyed both the sweet and green plantains at our table. The menu is varied and very reasonable.

We had excellent service and food came out quickly. The empanadas ( appetizer) were amazing but the main entree was not as good - pretty bland and very oily.

Waiter was fantastic. Mojitos are excellent (have 2 every time!). Food is delicious and plentiful (you will need a take-home box!). The Seafood Paella is scrumptious!

Service was excellent, very attentive waiter. Food was just ok for me I love spicy and saucy and my pork was neither, the plantains were really good. Wished we had ordered the paella, it looked really good! Was not pleased with where we were seated, we had reservations and were seated in the back beside a group of 8 rude loudmouths who didn't care that there were other diners.

We love coming to Sabor de Cuba, we love cuban food!
Staff is very friendly and it's your mom & pop's place with flavorful dishes. Would recommenrd to change up the menu every so often like by adding dishes such as: vaca frita de pollo, arroz imperial, offer pastelitos de guayaba vs. emapandas for dessert.

The lentil soup was quite good. The pollo en la plancha was a bit dry and the plantains we rather boring. After tasting the soup, I was expecting more flavor. Still, the menu is appealing and I'll probably give it another shot.

I was surprised to find this can restaurant in Frederick Md. I am of Cuban heritage and found the food to be authentic. It was well prepared and there were very creative Cuban offerings not found in so-called Americanized Cuban restaurants. The prices were also a pleasant surprise. Be advised, the appetizers are quite substantial so either make a meal of them or skip them and go for the main entrees. My wife and I will be back often.
