Amazing food and nice atmosphere. Would recommend a visit.
This place is so incredible! I love the good and the staff and the outdoor seating! Wish I lived closer to come more often!!
This place is awesome! Definitely try something new that you haven't had before...worth it!
I know it sounds boring, but the chips and dip are awesome! Plantain and Yucca chips!!!
food was delicious. staff was friendly and helpful. could have brought more tables outside sooner
Great atmosphere, food and staff. Menu has a lot of options and staff was helpful with making selections.
Fantastic food and ambience . You have to order at counter which is a bummer for a big party
Excellent food. Generous portions
Awesome food with a good selection to choose from. Clean with modest atmosphere. Friendly service.
Another nice meal at Guava's. Order taking efficient and accurate. Weird that the restaurant was out of the special of the day at 5:00 pm. Sat outside, which is a nice option in the Age of COVID even if the outdoor patio isn't the most attractive. The croquettas and the black beans need flavor boosts but otherwise the dishes were terrific and the portions generous.
LOVE Guavas Cuban Cafe. Great food, friendly staff, good wine and drinks list. Best ceviche in the Twin Cities IMO. Excellent flan, too. Nice patio out front. Highly recommended.
Reminds me of home cooking of my abuela. I will return.
I will choose the "sanguiches" (any of them), the "ropa vieja", "vaca frita", "tamal con lechon" this is a must, "chicharron de pollo"
Love the food, drinks and desserts here, especially the coratdito! I had the veggie hash as well; love the sauces. Neighborhood gem! Easy in/out with ordering at the counter.
Awesome! Great food and friendly staff. And the best Cuban coffee I have had since I was in Miami!
Love this place, I grew up eating Latino dishes like this (not Cuban) and the food is very good and authentic. Of course it has an Americanized flare but that’s on the customers not the restaurant. Can’t make everyone happy
Great food at extremely reasonable prices, with friendly service, in a comfortable space. Excellent ceviche (many local restaurants don't get this dish right), tasty maduros (wish there were more to a serving), and the entrees were fabulous, too. Not only that, they have a wonderful flan (another dish lots of restaurants don't do well) and a decent wine and cocktails list. Heads up: you order at the counter and the servers bring the food to your table when it's cooked. Not a big deal; just something to know. LOVE THIS RESTAURANT!
food is amazing, the staff is not super energetic tho and they had no pastelitos which is a little disappointing. I think it is a bit pricey, as when I visit my family in Puerto Rico the food is much much cheaper for the same stuff, taste, etc. Spent $40 on 2 meals but in PR we probably would have spent like $15-$20 total however I do recognize that the ingredients are harder to come by here in MN and since there is no other local bodegas and panaderias there is little competition for prices. I definitely will be back tho
Awesome!!! Tasty food and good music in the afternoons!
Delicious! We’ll be back soon
The food was well prepared and very tasty. We were a party of 6 and had a variety of Cuban dishes on their patio. A live band was playing inside which added to the experience. Desserts were reasonably priced and the flan was excellent! We plan to return to try more menu items. I highly recommend Guavas!
This place is vibrant, full of life, and a brilliant addition to the restaurant scene. Music is LOUD, dancing and musicians performing may break out... but if you are up for some fun and tasty plates of good food served hot and fresh than look no further! Guava's swings it! Thx for a great evening!
Love the live music!
Great afternoon on the patio! Love the Brunch menu.
Wonderful tasting, lots of good food for great value, Cuban food is delicious.
I recommend Guavas as an appealing casual dining experience with excellent Cuban food. It's reasonably price and a good value. They have outside dining on a roomy front patio, but beware that there can be very loud airplane noise as they are located directly under the approach path for the airport. Of course, that's beyond their control, but it's a consideration if you want to eat outside and carry on a conversation.
Excellent food, good prices, music way too loud for such a small space. Had to yell at my dining companions. The person taking our order misheard our order because of loud music and brought wrong food to 2 out of 4 of us!
The Cubano sandwich is to die for. Such great food and definitely worth the price. Very filling as well
Always a good time at Guava.
The vibe is great.
Friday night music is a bonus and the dancers are so fun to watch.
You can't beat the energy in this neighborhood gem.
Fresh and fabulous.
When working in South Florida, we developed a taste for Cuban Cuisine. Finding Guavas Cuban Cafe in Minneapolis was a happy occurrence. The food reflects everything we love about Cuban cuisine and adds a few subtle bits that take the food up another notch. If you love Cuban food or want to try it, Guavas will not disappoint.
The shrimp with coconut sauce was excellent- shrimp perfectly cooked and sauce very tasty. The pork in the Lechon rice bowl was so flavorful and tender. I wish the rice and beans were cooked with more herbs and spices. Both were lackluster. A cute place with great drink options and comfortable indoor and outdoor seating.
Other than a temporary lack of protein supply for the night, we enjoyed the experience!
Like many restaurants today, they are being stretched to provide a good experience at the same time they lack wait staff, and kitchens aren't working as well as they should. All of that is true at Guavas, but they also were compromised by not having many of the beers that they listed on their menu, nor any chips for the ceviche. The quality of what they delivered was compromised -- the use of ham sandwich meat along with the pulled pork in the Cubano, Sangria that seemingly had no alcohol, and a huge bowl of ceviche with nothing to eat it with. While the atmosphere was modest, it could have been greatly improved my dusting the spider webs out from under the wait station, the tables could have been wiped down more thoroughly and the plants used in the decor could be moved so the leaves weren't laying on top of my head (and I'm only 5'4"). All of this -- two sandwiches, ceviche and two drinks for $60 + tip. I won't be going back.
Delicious shrimp bowl with coconut sauce and plantains! Always pleasant atmosphere and service.
Always a five-star experience here!! I tried a new item and loved it and can’t wait to go back and try more!
The food was amazing the staff was wonderful and the prices were reasonable
Excellent food with indoor and an outdoor patio option.
Great food, comfortable patio, live music, friendly.
Very casual atmosphere. Great food! Very friendly and helpful staff!
