We absolutely love this place. Everyone I take, family, friends agrees with me that's it's darn good food. The Mojitos are legit as well. My favorite on the menu is the Pernil. It's perfectly flavored and can't go wrong with a side of beans. A must go if you have not already tried it.

I finally stopped into this restaurant and was not disappointed. The empanadas and soup are really good. The service was prompt and courteous. I will definitely be back!

My girlfriend and I were staying in Frederick for the evening, as we planned on doing some hiking and visiting some of the historic sites in the area the following day. We arrived at our hotel and wanted to grab dinner, but nothing chain affiliated. Luckily, we found Sabor de Cuba on trip advisor and made an online reservation for... More

Four of us ate here on a Wednesday night. The place wasn't that busy, but they seemed understaffed. Trillian and I arrived after our friends, who already had their drinks. It took quite a few minutes for the bartender/waiter to visit the table for our drink orders. I will say that he was quite helpful in answering our questions about... More

This is authentic cuban food and dont get me wrong, it is good cuban food. But, if you are a connoissuer of cuban food and try to get it whenever you can, this may not be your version of cuban food. It is Frederick-ized, and I get it. Nevertheless, the people are friendly and the restaurant is clean and the... More

We split our meal. Started with empanadas, split Avocado salad and split a grilled snapper main course. The portions are big.

We visit Frederick several times a year and often lunch here. I love their chicken soup/stew! Daughter likes the "Cuban" sodas.

This place has been consistently good for us, both the service and the food. Only one time I had a problem with a dish, where the kitchen seemed to have drop a lot of salt (was not really edible and I left most of it). The rest of the visits, we've not been disappointed. The menu is not very extensive,... More

Vegetarian plate was ok, empanadas also good, but with a caveat. The pork was not bad but it was awfully hard to chew, and later to digest. Perhaps it was only that pieces. Let's hope so. Tres leche was ok,

I enjoyed the meal very much. The food is based upon handed down recipes from the owners Grandmother. The owner is very welcoming. I would go back without hesitation.
