Booked through OpenTable. Bar/restaurant with big screen TV inside showing Cuban singing groups. Also had patio seating. Had two appetizers plus a shredded beef dish. Empanaditos and crab pastries. Neither was anything special. Shredded beef dish St. Louis was quite good. Service was adequate, but not good. Wouldn't return.

The food at Yerba Buena is delicious! The atmosphere is very happy and party-like! There is live music! I can't wait to come back to Puerto Rico so I can have dinner here again!

Place in Condado area targeting tourists. Food quality is not satisfying. Old reheated potato and lettuce with black edges are not something you want to eat for dinner

Well worth the money. Skirt Steak is to die for! Staff is friendly and went out of their way to put the Cubs game on for us. Don't pass this one by!

We had such a blast here. The food is delicious! The fried calamari was the best I've ever had, the ribs are out of this world, but most importantly the decor, ambiance, and service was five stars. Our bill was presented to us in a wooden cigar box, which our waiter let us sign. Have to come back. 5 stars!!!

It started off with a nice menu but we had a waiter with a personality of a wet dish rag. He should get out of the business. We asked for bread, you would think a Cuban restaurant would have nice hot press bread but no😶! We ordered the red snapper... Very dry not worth the $35. We had the churrasco... More
