Welcome to Rebecca’s Cuban Restaurant and Event Venue in Edgewater NJ

Providing great food, warm & friendly service and value (BYOB) is our top priority.

Our Owner


a rare fine dining find, wrapped in an intimate restaurant feel
Rebecca’s was initially established in 1998, before the year 2000! Since then, we have retained and unleashed the same world class chef, kept the delightful menu consistent, preserved the cozy and romantic atmosphere, and improved the property. We have guests who have been experiencing dinner here for over 20 years!

This black and white picture was taken of the front of the restaurant around the time of opening in 1998. As you can see the character of the restaurant has remained exactly the same as the initial founder intended, and the aesthetics were improved, not changed.

The owners intend to preserve the restaurant as a local landmark. Today it is an anchor experience of Northern New Jersey, and has over 600 Five Star Ratings online.

If you have been here before, don’t hesitate to come again, we have preserved every detail from the initial founders vision.


We have served over 60,000 delightful dinners over 20 years of being in business. As you would imagine, by now we have hundreds of repeat customers that just walk in and say …

“I’ll have the usual”

fine Cuban and Caribbean cuisine
Our chef and staff draws from ingredients from the caribbean, central and south america. Our menu has remained exactly the same for over 20 years. To keep things fresh we offer nightly specials. So, you should always ask …

“What’s the special tonight?”

Cliffside Patio setup for a romantic event or dinner


we have seating configurations several event types

Main Dining room – a cozy seating area for 30 to 40 guests and frequently the unofficial dance floor for a special celebratory dance for 2. Decorated with rich fabrics, a hint of classic Havana and all of the rustic beauty of a place where you can fall in love again, or laugh about everything.

Romantic Hideaway – a dim lit soft intimate room that seats up to 14 guests depending on configuration. Decorated with mirrors, outfitted with candles and a combination of long bench chairs and wooden single seats, this areas is perfect for the private party that wants to be exclusive, but not tucked too far away from the action in the main dining room.

Cliffside Patio – an open airy Napa like patio that seats up to 30 guests depending on configuration. Open in the summer covered in soft night-lights, greenery, flowers and a waterfall. Glass covered in the winter, heated and glowing under the summer lights that mask the cold of the winter while reminding you of “that warm summer night” you were here last year.

La comida aquí es el mejor de los USA. Asistí a un baby shower para mi novia durante un brunch el domingo . Hemos sido capaces de decorar el lugar a nosotros mismos , jugamos la música que nos gustaba , y disfrutamos de una comida de tres platos que parecía que estábamos de vuelta a casa . ¡Bien hecho!

Decidi llevar a mi novia a Rebecca's en Edgewater por nuestro aniversario y quedamos encantados de este lugar. La atmosfera muy romantica, la comida deliciosa. Mi novia pidio Churrasco, y yo pedi los Camarones Verdes. Wow, que exquisita la salsa verde, y el flan es de otro planeta. El servicio es muy amigable y muy atento!! Y el BYOB para llevar mi propia botella, es una excelente opcion para aquellos que nos gusta disfrutar de un buen vino con excelente comida.

We had our wedding anniversary party here. The BYOB service is great, everyone was able to bring their favorite drinks and we embellished in the food and music. The best part? The owners came over, spoke to us and found out it was our anniversary. They asked us for our wedding song, and then played it for my wife and I to dance after dinner. You can't beat that!

The food here is consistently good, I have been here on weekdays, weekends, on holidays when they have prix fixes and on days when there are barely people here - consistently these guys put out a great experience and meals that always delight. This is one of my favorite restaurants the the greater Northern New Jersey area.
