Bella Cuba lived up to the hype! The authentic style cuban food was outstanding. We loved the atmosphere, the little family owned venue, and got good recommendations from our server. The drunken chicken was amazing and we had the family style appetizer which was a very generous amount of food for our crew. A+, totally recommend for anyone wanting a good Cuban food experience!

The food was outstanding - service could have been a little more attentive but what a great “non-touristy “ find!

We had three people but were put at a table that really only fit 2. The bench was not fastened properly so my young child fell through it twice. The white rice that was the side of two of our dishes was very dry while the roasted suckling pig was more like a braised pulled pork and was overly salty. Very ordinary food. Not very family friendly. Service was good however and waiters were friendly and attentive.

This restaurant is definitely substance over style. The curb appeal and window table at which we were seated left something to be desired, but the food was exceptional as was the much raved about blueberry mojito. The serving staff was very attentive and the interior areas of the restaurant where tables had candles were really nice. If you want authentic Cuban food, this is a worth the trip!

Food was delicious. Service was absolutely terrible. Waited an hour for an incomplete food order to arrive. Waited 30 minutes for a mojito. Never did receive the second one. 18% gratuity automatically included for a party of 2. No food or drink was discounted despite the ridiculously long wait.

Amazing. Bella Cuba was one of the best meals we had in South Beach. We were greeted and seated as soon as we entered. Our drink orders arrived quickly and we ordered the Tostones and the Ceviche Salad for appetizers. Both were outstanding - colorful presentation and lots of flavor. For dinner I had the Lechon Asada. The pork was tender and flavorful. The sides were great and the portions were adequate. My wife had the Drunk Chicken. She enjoyed the chicken but thought there may have been too much rice. All in all we both enjoyed the service, the dinner and the atmosphere.

It took a long time to get our food. 30 minutes for a piece of pie. We were seated at a table near the restroom which smelled horrible.

Ordered one chicken and one beef empanada appetizer, ox tail stew and seafood paella. The ox tail was delicious, tender and well flavored. All of the food was good. Service was top notch; definitely feels family run and rich with a personal story
