Rencontrez le proprio

Ce contenu est uniquement en anglais

Looking around Julie’s Cuban Restaurant, it’s hard to believe owner Sylvia Llewellyn was reluctant to run a restaurant. The space radiates warmth, lovingly decorated with antiques from the ’50s and ’60s and softly lit with strings of lights. But, she says, becoming a restaurateur was never her intention or her passion. “I didn’t want to work in a restaurant,” she says. “I’d never worked in a restaurant.”

Instead, Julie’s was born out of circumstance. Faced with an early ’90s recession, Sylvia tried to sell the building, after she took over ownership from her mother Julie, but it proved difficult. So Sylvia embraced the space, renovating and turning it into a licensed restaurant. Despite her initial apprehension, it didn’t take long before Julie’s became known as the place to get the perfect mojito or to have a first date.

“Within six months, we were so popular that visitors from New York and L.A. were booking tables,” says Sylvia, seeming somewhat surprised herself by the restaurant’s quick rise to success. It even became popular with the celebrity crowd, counting Rachel McAdams, Natalie Portman and local celebrities among its customers.

Thank you!

While Latin eateries have been peppering the high-dining corridors for years, Julie's Restaurant and Bar has been quietly serving up Cuban fare on a shaded residential strip of Dovercourt near Dundas.

Cozy Cuban Cuisine

My first time trying Cuban cuisine. With no frame of reference I would have to say it was pretty good quality Cuban food. All of the food tasted very fresh. The Cuban steak was cooked the way that I wanted it, and it was delicious. It annoyed me that we had to pay for the bowl of tortilla chips & salsa while waiting for our food - that kind of stuff should be free. Drinks were very steeply priced, especially Mojitos. The service was good, the waiters were more than happy to help us through our first Cuban meal. Our final bill for 3 people, including a fair tip was $300. If I returned it would be in summer when the patio is open, and I would just order the tasty Cuban steak, keep it simple and not get caught up in the moment ordering expensive sides, drinks, and desserts.

Disappointment !!!!!!

I was born and raised in Cuba and I’m a Chef, that said: While browsing for a Cuban restaurant I came across this one, shocking description. First of all Cuban food isn’t hot at all except for hot tamales or an enchilada de camarones in it’s hot and spicy version popular at bars and eateries to be accompanied by very cold beer. Describing Cuban cuisine as “hot” gives me the notion that who ever wrote those paragraphs has no clue about the real deal. Second: guacamole, nachos and salsa, quesadillas…. Mexican, has nothing to do with Cuban food, not today, not in the past. Cuban food has a stronger influence from Spanish, Mediterranean and even classic French and nothing to do with Mexican hot and spicy seasoning. For sure I wont be amongst the guest list.

To Machete1... guess you've never been to any of the thousands of Cuban restaurants in Miami. Julie's Cuban Chef IS CUBAN from Cienfuegos. And if the Cuban people had spices in Cuba... they would use them... they don't even have oregano... it's a cosmopolitan world now... and no guacamole is not a Cuban dish which always surprised me since they grow avocados in their backyards.
