Camarones en Aguacate

Their food is beyond good we started off with the empanadas and let me tell you they are cooked to perfection and made fresh to order I promise. We got a bit greedy and got the garlic shrimp over the avocado with bread on the side and I literally come here for the Garlic shrimp they add a spice of love into it. Now for the meal I had shrimp white rice sweet plantains and a side salad. They ask how you want your plantains which is perfect we're all a little different ! Something about that sauce touching the rice that makes you do a happy dance every time. The flavor is also very consistent Everytime so you won't be upset coming back. We also had the pork chops and let's talk about someone in the kitchen knowing how to season like a professional! Overall the experience was great and the price was not bad for all the food we got !

Pargo Frito*

This is my favorite dish! Everything is seasoned to perfection and keeps me coming back everytime. Also the Rum cake is delish! I get it to go so that I savor every bite at home.

I always bring friends to experience the fresh, flavorful offerings of Cuba De Ayer. I love how accommodating you are for our particular tastes- whether it's a request to blacken the salmon or add avocado to a salad or bring additional asparagus for the order- you ALWAYS deliver! Side Note: it was extra cool to spot the restaurant on television when a "Real Housewife of Potomac" ate dinner there with her husband! Kudos to you for always bringing the delicious food and the friendly staff!!! Cheers to many more years together

Churrasco Cubano

We are fairly frequent customers here. Once again, Cuba De Ayer did not disappoint! The steak was delicious! I LOVE the red beans. We split an order of tge Asparagus. They were huge and delicious. Perhaps they could have had a few moments less in the pan, just to keep a little more crispness, but delicious none the less. My girlfriend had the fried snapper and loved it. Our drinks were well balanced and tasty. Service was definately 5 star! I love this place!

Caribbean Salmon

Keep returning to order this dish. It is tasty. The shrimp are cooked to perfection and the sauce enhances the dish well. Compliments to the chef and the service too.

Arroz Con Pollo (Dark Meat)

This dish is a staple for anytime I am looking for a great meal that reminds me of home. It is amazing for lunch and I often order it as part of a catering order because it tastes great the day of and holds up well as left overs the next day. Huge pieces of chicken with expertly seasoned rice. It always hits the spot!!

Cafecito Cubano

I was born in Cuba and grew up in the US. I have been going to Cuba de Ayer for several years and they have never failed me. Their menu is like going through a memory book of everything I have ever loved about Cuban cooking. I have lived in Miami and while there I missed Cuba de Ayer, that is how wonderful their food is. I particularly like the traditional things like the masas de puerco, Moros y Cristianos, and yuca con mojo. Their cooking always reminds me of the foods my family prepared while I was growing up and I hope they will always be there to bring back those wonderful memories.
