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.

Have only been here twice and the first time made me come back because of the paella. Enough for two with a little left over. My friend had the Cuban sandwich and said it was very good.

Wasn't planning to stop, but one of the kids was hungry while out shopping. The kid had sandwich de pollo (he thought it was excellent). I had the tostones and maduros. I usually judge Latin food on how well they fix these two staples, and they didn't disappoint. I would've liked to have tried the yuca frita too, but was... More
