Victor’s Café & Cuba Lounge

Victor’s, in the theater district, has been a redoubt for high-end Cuban food for 50 years. Family owned and operated since 1963, Victor’s daughter, Sonia Zaldivar, working together with talented chefs, developed our current concept which is the basis of all we do: The Evolution of Cuban Cuisine. We bring you our interpretation of what an upscale Cuban restaurant would be in Cuba if politics had not interfered with its growth.

What you’ll do

You can dine in our award winning Cafe or embrace the music and mojitos at the Cuba Lounge:

Victor’s Cafe: Walk into Victor’s Café and immediately you’ll experience a welcoming, fun environment, featuring colorful original art, bright colors and palm trees, in a magical skylit room, where hanging vines and lamps blend together. Our space has a style of its own. The feel is tropical chic with touches of Cuban charm and New York culture. Victor’s Café continues to capture the hearts of New Yorkers with great signature dishes, including our famous black bean soup, shredded beef (Ropa Vieja), and roast suckling pig (Lechón).

Cuba Lounge: In the Cuba Lounge, you’ll surround yourself with the vintage spirit of Cuba, celebrities and the Del Corral family photos. Enjoy live music by the award-winning “Son de Cuba Band” as you sip on one of our exquisite cocktails, the best mojito and sangria you’ll find in New York City, and Cuban-inspired tapas that are the essence of the Evolution of Cuban Cuisine.
