4.2⭐️ I’ve been to this place before taking pics — a recommendation from a Cuban friend who knows the chef.One of the better Cuban places in Miami. From the outside doesn’t seem much, but the inside is charming; beautiful Cuban-themed interiors and welcoming staff, which is quick and kind.This time we only went with appetizers and coffee—good stuff with a modern twist.Cocktails are a must since they are the bomb! You can’t go wrong with any. I am looking forward to sharing more photos and recommendations.

Fabulous experience! Food. Drinks. Atmosphere. Happy Hour. Entertainment. Service. Everything was spot on. This is the type of place that every city needs. It’s great for a fun night out with friends/family or for a date night.What’s really impressive was the little things were thought of. Our 8 year-old loved seeing our name on the board welcoming us. The communication before and after dining there was grateful. Attention from various staff throughout the night.Trying to think of one thing to improve and all we could come up with was our table for five seemed really small. Adds to the intimacy I suppose, but made managing dishes on the table a little challenging. But didn’t take anything away from the night.We’d come back in a heartbeat when we return to Miami.

My husband and I loved everything about dining and dancing at Cafe La Trova! From the interior decorations, the beyond delicious food, outstanding drinks, amazing live band, my compliments don’t cease for this establishment! We had such an amazing experience, which wasn’t possible without the outstanding service from Humberto! He truly went above and beyond to give us a wonderful, fun, anniversary dinner! Humberto embodies all the qualities that makes a waiter perfect! We are so grateful for our anniversary celebration at Cafe La Trova and can’t wait to return! These are only some of the photos of our amazing dishes and drinks!

We were on vacation last week with family…had a lot going on so moved our reservation to the following night. Almost cancelled but, since my husband had read such great reviews, we skipped going out with extended family and tried it. The moment we walked in the door, we were immediately charmed by the dip back into another era. The cheerful vibe and retro feel was welcoming and the live music was a pleasant surprise. Everyone was warm and genuinely friendly/courteous. We have a couple of restaurants here in Ashevile, NC, so we appreciated the balanced menu options—everything we tried was absolutely delicious and beautiful as well. The drinks were a treat! We even splurged on the bread pudding with the rum-soaked raisins and it was a triumph! My dad has been gone 10 years now but he would have been transported into a blissful state with everything we experienced on our lovely date night at Cafe La Trova. We drank our toast to him and felt like he was with us. (Your band even played one of the songs he used to play on his guitar, when I was little). And your bartender! ? Joining in with the maracas! Awesome. We really loved it all. Thanks so much!

Found an amazing experience and happy hour. Carlos makes absolutely the best Mojitos we have ever had. The happy hour food was absolutely delicious and we can’t wait to come back and listen to the live music and try out more of the menu. Cuba has stole our stomachs.

Among the most influential bartenders in the world, Julio Cabrera is a leader in handcrafted cocktails . Julio Cabrera and his team of Cantineros recreate the retro Cuba atmosphere. Café La Trova's modern take on classic Cuban-style dishes will not disappoint. They are helmed by James Beard and Award-winning Chef Michelle Bernstein. Little Havana's Cafe La Trova caters perfectly authentic Cuban dishes along with traditional Cuban music played by Trova musicians who will immerse you in cuban culture.


It's hard to resist the shrimp po'boy tacos and suckling pig buns, but the award winning golden chorizo croquetas are the star which linger on your palate. They're flavored with Miami Smokers' chorizo, mustard, and queso fresco.

If you're in the mood for a happy hour, you'll find it every day of the week at Cafe La Trova. Visitors can enjoy $5 drinks like daiquiris and mojitos and Latin bites like $5 croquettes and $6 empanadas.
