Come enjoy the tropical tastes of Cuba at El Artesano Restaurant, located in Union City, New Jersey. We're only a stone's throw away from the heart of New York City. "Featuring authentic Cuban food" - El Nuevo Hudson In August 2013, El Artesano was featured in an episode of the Cooking Channel's show Not My Mama's Meals. We hosted Bobby Dean and Sabrina Soto as they ventured through "Havana on the Hudson." The episode is titled Cubano Nights! and can be viewed on the Cooking Channel's YouTube subscription channel. On April 29, 2014, El Artesano Restaurant celebrated its 40th anniversary. We are honored to have had your patronage all these years. Our restaurant was originally located across the street, and in 1991 we moved to our current location. In the years since we have proudly continued to serve our loyal customers as well as welcoming new customers, whether from New Jersey, the surrounding area, or even some who have visited from abroad. Now, we are excited to announce that we have expanded, and opened a second dining area adjacent to our main dining room. We have increased our seating capacity in a newly renovated and bright space filled with Latin sounds and Cuban sights. We look forward to your continued loyalty. Come and enjoy the tropical tastes of Cuban cuisine at El Artesano Restaurant, only a stone’s throw away from New York City.

I absolutely am in love with this place. They have by far the best soups and Empanadas I have ever had!!! It's almost as if I'm sitting somewhere in Cuba eating.

Oh my goodness, some of the tastiest food i've ever had in my life! Felix, the owner obviously takes a lot of pride in the food he serves, and it shows. The staff is extremely personable as well. Also awesome, the prices. I cannot wait to go back and try more!

This is my 1st time trying this place and I have to say its pretty good. I got the camarones enchilados, and beef empanadas. Very tasty. I ordered it for a pick up and it was ready in 10 min. Overall great place to have some cuban food. Reminds me of home made food.

Love it when NJDiningGuide.net works out. Not only was the food great the ladies behind the counter were friendly, made great conversation and suggestions. I dined in and when I could not finish my enormous sandwich, they gladly bagged it up for me. Also, the salad and dessert was yummy.

My favorite Cuban restaurant ever. I've ordered takeout about 15 times and it's always scrumptious and delicious. Super flavorful!! the meat is always moist and cooked to perfection. Their plantains are the best.

Really GREAT Cuban food! My Boyfriend and I have been coming to El Artesano for years and absolutely love it! I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Try their Pechuga de Polio Deshuesada a la Plancha - (Grilled chicken Breast) - it\'s so yummeeeeee!!!! Oh and don\'t forget their Empanadas! LOVE THEM!!

Everything is done right in this cute little hole-in-the-wall joint! I have already been here 3-4 times and haven\'t been disappointed. =)
