The restaurant, who serves "incredible" Cuban food "morning, noon, and night" and whose brunch is "a divine reason to skip church" according to Zagat, opened its doors in 1995 as La Isla.
La Isla is owned and operated by a traditional Cuban family who believe that fresh, tasty food in good portions served in a local neighborhood atmosphere by friendly people is important to a town.
With this welcoming tradition, it's no surprise that
La Isla is a local favorite as well as a destination for lovers of Cuban food not only in Hoboken but throughout New Jersey.
To enter the humble settings of this small family-run restaurant is to walk into the heart of Little Havana and experience the warm heart of the Cuban people, the fast beat of their music and the surprising character of their cuisine. La Isla offers authentic Cuban dishes as well as some of the most creative Nuevo Latino cuisine.
