About Cuba’s Restaurant:
Located on near Bronte Gore Park at 2444 Lakeshore Road East in Oakville, Ontario, Cuba’s Restaurant is serving traditional Cuban and other Latin-inspired dishes. Cuba’s serves a late lunch and dinner and is a popular place to have a meal that is unlike your ordinary daily menu and enjoy Cuban music.
The restaurant is located right across from a small strip mall, and there is enough parking available for cars and bikes. Cuba's is a place where you can go with your kids or go with a group of friends or colleagues. There is free WIFI, but no TV or outdoor seating. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed over an average noise level, except late on weekends when it transforms into a Cuban dance venue.
Cuba’s Restaurant is advertising itself as a place serving the most authentic Cuban food in Canada. The menu reflects this notion as it contains every Cuban dish you can imagine. There are Ceviche, Tamale, Yuca Frita, Paella, Tostones, and the inevitable plantain chips and churros. Serving mojito and piña colada over Cuban music, this place offers a lot more than a simple dining experience.

Cuba’s Restaurant has been in business since 2013. Even in its small location, it serves expertly prepared Cuban food. The interior of the restaurant is very Cuban-like. The walls are yellow, with red accents. The ceiling has exposed ductwork painted black, with large white lampshades. The walls have colourful framed pictures as well as Cuba memorabilia. There are wooden tables and chairs, with red tablecloths, and the food comes served on beautiful white porcelain plates that add to the contrast between the colourful dish and red tablecloths.
The food is prepared in the open concept kitchen and served right over the large bar, so the patrons can watch as their food is being plated. Each meal is prepared with fresh ingredients in nice size which most customers liked. The bar serves Latin-inspired drinks predominantly like mojitos with fresh mint or their La Bomba cocktail.
On weekends Cuba’s usually has late-night entertainment with live Cuban music and dancing. Anyone craving a medianoche (Cuban) sandwich, Tostones Rellenos or want to enjoy a mojito and some salsa dancing, you should most definitely visit Cuba’s Restaurant in Oakville.
