Default What's cookin at Cubas Cookin?

Found out that CC is moving to another (easier access) destination soon. Major focus seems to be to maintain the total charm that the place currently has. I think ownership can pull it off.
This is one of the few authentic (if not only) Cuban restaurants on the island, Hope the chef makes the transition as well. He is a true blue Cuban Chef and not a Caribbean chef that cooks Cuban. In there lies s difference.

Let's see what happens

be well
charles

Where will they be moving to?

In our local Travel Section last Fall there was a story that "YES" the Chef is Cuban. But the Owner is Canadian from Montreal.

Went to Cuba's Cookin' the year they opened & was impressed with service, quality & atmosphere. Have viewed mixed reviews since their opening & I'm confident the new location & venue will be wonderful. Hope to stop in to their new location.

I've met the owner, Douglass, a few times and, yes, he is originally from Canada.

Though we're not always in the "KNOW" among locals & informed travelers, we know what we like. Would try Aruba's Cookin' again based on our initial visit :0))
