La Bodeguita de Cuba
La Bodeguita de Cuba is an establishment located in the lively Mariscal district of Quito. A modest Cuban restaurant, it boasts a laid-back vibe yet an impressively authentic dining experience; you'll really get a taste of Cuba here. The place is very popular with the locals - always a good sign!
The restaurant décor is cosy, rustic and traditional, with plenty of wood and a wall of scrawled messages. Dining tables and chairs are spread over two levels, with orders placed at a bar in the centre of the restaurant.
The food is typical Cuban cuisine, but done very well, proving that innovative flair is not always necessary for a tasty dish. The menu offers a good variety of incredibly flavourful dishes, with a prevalence of rice and bean based platters. To accompany your meal, why not try a cocktail; La Bodeguita is famed for its fantastic mojitos!
For an added Cuban experience, visit on Thursday night, when Cuban musicians sing the very best of their country's music.
