Restaurant Review


A little Bit of Cuba is a BYOB serving generous portions of authentic Cuban dishes.


The restaurant is owned and operated by Chef Jesus Lopez and his wife Sandra Lopez, who manages the dining area


Mr. Lopez, a native of Cuba, while not having any formal culinary training, developed his culinary skills while working in Latin restaurants and in his mother's kitchen using many of her recipes. 


The decor is attractive chic. The ambiance is cozy with toned green and exposed brick walls, and dark wood flooring.

There is soothing Latin music in the background. On weekends they have a live band playing Latin music.


The menu offers a nice variety of Cuban specialties, although for a casual dining restaurant, the prices for some of the entrees are on the high side. This is no doubt due to the large portions of meat provided.


After being seated, you are served with a basket of fried plantain, and presented with the menu, and asked for your drink order from a selection of bottled drinks


The service is friendly and attentive.


A Little Bit of Cuba is open seven days/week. Monday to Thursday 11:30 a.m. to 9 pm.. Friday, & Saturday 11:39 am to 10:30 pm.; and Sunday, noon to 9 pm
