Twisted CUBAN Cafe & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Great food, service, and atmosphere. Drove from Renton for a date night during Restaurant Week and would come back again. I lived in Miami previously and was pleasantly surprised at the authenticity and high quality of this cuisine. They sell Cuban and Dominican cigars which my boyfriend was very happy with. I highly recommend Twisted Cuban Cafe! Can't wait to come back!
There was only one lady working. She had about 4 or 5 tables and seemed scattered.
The food was atrocious! I ordered the "Roasted Pork". It was a ball of wet pulled pork with little to no taste. The yucca had to be from a can and terrible, mushy, tasteless. The black beans were way to salty and just in black runny water. I have had Cuban food in Miami and would gladly pay to fly there again then spend $72.00 at this place. My husband had the "steak" it was the worst cut you can possibly get and they have a butcher NEXT DOOR! Don't waste your time or money here.
This was our first trip to Twisted Cuban, and it will not be our last. We absolutely loved the food and the service was fantastic. A great little spot a little off the beaten path in Woodinville, yet very easy to get to. There were so many things we wanted to try, that we were already picking out the food we want to eat on our next visit. Highly recommend!
I loved the appetizers! I was not all that familiar with the cuisine but It was explained which was very nice. I was disappointed however with my Cuban sandwich! I almost felt like it was just warmed in a microwave! The bun was hard like when you over cook in micro! I will probably try this place again but definitely try another item
Stopped at Twisted Cuban after wine tasting. Selected the cafe based on reviews and the fact that they offer several menu items that are gluten free. We ordered the appetizer sample plate and though good, it was disappointing in that the dishes were a little bland and one dimensional. I was looking for a more exciting flavor profile. A better choice in condiments could help a lot.
Service was good.
Our main dishes on the other hand were very good as was the Mojito I ordered. The aroma of dishes cooking showcased use of cumin in some of the dishes and was a very authentic environment. Don't be frightened off by some of the less favorable reviews. Skip the appetizer plate, order a Mojito (or two ) and a pork dish and visit Havana for the evening.
I got there towards closing time, so the ambiance was a little less energetic it would be during peak times especially when there is live music and dancing. I always look for foods from different nationalities and The twisted Cuban fit the bill I had the soup of the day, Posole which was quite different then New Mexico posole. It was meaty but light on the posole and it did not have the red chili kick of the NM posole. The Lechon asado and it came with Moro (rice and beans) and Yucca. I expected the yucca to be deep fried but is was boiled or steamed. I also had the empanadas. Everything was very tasty. I've never had Cuban food before so I did not know if seasoning and spice was spot or if was lacking. I prefer not to have to add salt and little more kick to my food.
I work close to here and have eaten here several times. The food is wonderful, as well as the service. My husband and I recently invited some friends out for a couples dinner and we brought them here......they loved it! I have tried almost everything on the menu and you can't go wrong. Very tasty!
After having dined there before, our family and friends chose to return to dine at The Twisted Cuban - this time to celebrate my husband's birthday. The staff was EXTREMELY kind and accommodating to our ever-growing guest list. Our hostess/server/bartender, Dani, was so very organized and friendly. She made our large group feel welcome and did not miss a beat when it came to personalized service. I don't live in Woodinville, but our dining experience at The Twisted Cuban makes the drive so very worth it.
Thank you, The Twisted Cuban Owners and Staff
The food was good, but slightly bland – easily changed by adding a little salt and pepper. I didn't care for the place when it was simply Twisted Cafe, but now that it's a new owner, new name, new menu, etc., it is significantly better. I wouldn't return to Twisted Cafe, but I WILL return to Twisted CUBAN Cafe!
I really enjoyed the food and bar menu. The Drinks were especially good and we got there before happy hour ended, so that was great. The food was both exotic and delicious. The plantines were served in a variety of ways and each tasted different, the black beans were outstanding. The pork ribs were fantastic and the chicken with lemon over rice was great.
The only thing I would warn people about is parking. Not much parking in front of the restaurant, but lots of parking to the rear of the restaurant, but it is a little tricky to get to. You almost have to know where it is and were the curb cut is located.
We will be going back again!
