We go to Isla several times a year and have always walked past Qubano but glad we finally stopped in to eat. We've heard such good things about the restaurant but for some reason never ate there. The food was excellent. The waiter made some recommendations and glad we listened to him. Don't miss the hand-cut French fries either. We'll... More

We loved this restaurant and Vivian, the owner. The food is so delicious and there are so many unexpected combinations. If you are gluten free, the sandwiches can all be made with plantains which is ridiculously amazing. Vivian is so sweet and her pets hanging around for free love are a bonus. She even invited my group of friends back... More

This was my first experience at this restaurant, my daughter, 2 year old grandson and me. I ask for gluten free options, Vivian was so nice and there were quite a few options for me. I decided to go with whatever she suggested...Cuban Lasagna. The noodle substitute was mashed plantains that were quick fried. The meat was mildly spiced and... More

Everything we had (sandwich sampler, Cuban lasagna, Havana pork) was excellent. We are stuffed. The service and setting were equally great. Highly recommend.

Just finished our 5th visit to the island and we always make sure to visit Qubano Restaurant as much as we can while we are there. Not only is the food always consistently delicious, but Vivian is an amazing host! There are so many great places to eat in Isla Mujeres but this is always at the top of our... More

I had the sampler, but it was really the Toston that stole the show - so good! The fried plantains were a nice touch instead of bread.

I love the food at Qubano's! Every single time I return to Isla, Qubano's delivers in taste, quality and authenticity. Being Cuban, I'm picky about Cuban food and Qubano's is the real deal. Starting with the best mojito on the island and moving on to the perfect cuban sandwich, owner Vivian's food is great in taste and high in quality.... More
