Stumbled onto this place while with my family (to include young son) and could not believe our good fortune. The service: Impeccable. One young man covered all the tables outside brilliantly. My wife and I were both servers in our younger years and appreciated the...More

My friend went for a dinner to celebrate her birthday. She took her 3 mond old baby with her, who was quiet and calm. In fact this was her first restaurant visit since she became a mom. The chef was very unfriendly, said the baby...More

My wife and I had dinner at La Cantina Cubana. The restaurant is very good located (close to Grand Place and Manneken Pis) and has a nice atmosphere. However, the food was average.
