Really great good, genuine service!! Ordered the empanadas twice because the green sauce was so good. The desert "sinfonia in a glass" or that might be a loose translation, was amazing with a little vsop to make it more amazing. Highly recommended!

Corner restaurant, good for people watching. Hip, attentive wait staff. Recommended to us by a shop keeper. Goat cheese salad a winner, burrata cheese salad the same. Wine and entrees all winners.

YUCA, an acronym for Young Urban Cuban-Americans, is widely known as being South Florida's original upscale Cuban restaurant featuring Innovative Nuevo Latino Cuisine or as the locals call it "Nuevo Latino." This style of cooking includes traditional Latin ingredients such as a plethora of textures, colors, and flavors that when combined creates a cuisine that is unique to anything offered outside of the Caribbean and Latin America.
