If you want to remember Pier A Park, come to this restaurant first. La Isla is famous for providing Cuban cuisine. Try mouthwatering cuban sandwiches, black rice and empanadas. To try perfectly cooked key lime pie, French toasts and flans is a truly nice idea. This place will offer you delicious wine, liqueur or beer. According to the visitors' opinions, waiters offer great white coffee, latte or cortadito.

At this spot, you can order a takeaway. Most guests mention that the staff is gracious. This restaurant is remarkable for its fabulous service. Prices are found attractive here. There is a homey atmosphere and divine decor at La Isla. The Trip rating for this place is 4.5.

Small place but has the best Cubans sandwiches and croquetas I ever tasted!
How have I not reviewed this place yet? I have loved it for 20 years. Personally I always get the daily specials, Cuban sandwich or anything in the hot box. Sit at the counter and enjoy the hectic atmosphere.
Hoboken residents, both past and present, have spoken highly about the original La Isla, and that sold me on the spot even before I put a foot inside. It's a narrow cozy restaurant that offers homey Cuban fare not too far from the PATH station.  I was disappointed that La Isla was essentially all out of their specials even though it was just a little past 7 PM on a weeknight. Oh well, you snooze, you lose I suppose. After the waiter mentioned it as one of their most popular dishes, I ordered the camarones enchilado ($19) which consisted of sauteed jumbo shrimp with onions, garlic, olives, peppers, and a Creole sauce. The two sides I selected were fried yuca and maduro; the other options were rice and beans. The shrimp were indeed jumbo, were cooked well, and were quite palatable with a touch of spice. The sides were great too.  The guava and cream cheese empanada was a sweet way to cap off the meal. I wasn't sure if I could fit in a slice or something, but the pocket-sized empanada came to the rescue.   Our trio had a awesome evening here. Of course the company counts for a lot, but the delicious Cuban eats had much to do with that as well! Hope to try out the breakfast/brunch next time I'm in the area!
