Cuba Café Authentic Food for Local Las Vegas Residents


To be honest, I’m really not into chain restaurants. Chains have their place, but I’m a big fan of small mom and pop joints with amazing fare. Cuba Café is that place. In a small strip mall off Tropicana between Eastern and Spencer, Cuba Café is an inviting lunch/dinner spot that will satisfy. When I moved to Las Vegas in April, Cuba Café was the first restaurant I was taken to and I was not disappointed.

I had the signature dish, Ropa Vieja, meaning “Old Clothes” which is perfectly spiced shredded beef simmered with onions and pepper. I also had a side of the “Plantanos Maduros”, the sweet fried bananas which were scrumptious. My lunch companion had the Salmon Al Mango with is a seared Salmon with mango sauce served with vegetable rice which was equally as good. For I dessert I tasted my companion’s Guanabana & Mamey Batidos which is a cool creamy Cuban style milkshake. As I write this, my mouth waters and I am trying to think when I can go back again, but this time for dinner, so I can enjoy it with a nice Negra Modelo or a nice Chilean red wine.

Cuba Café is located at 2055 E. Tropicana Blvd. Las Vegas 89119
Phone 702-795-7070 Entrée’ run between $7.00 and $20.00. Beer and wine are served. Cuba Café Authentic Food for Local Las Vegas Residents
