I met a women who was from Cuba and she told me about this restaurant and it was excellent and the service was great and friendly. We did not have a lot of time but it was so good we went back again. The Mojito was wonderful.

Charming place for lunch. Reasonable prices. Nice variety on the menu. If you eat outside, the feral chickens & roosters are fun to watch.

After not being here last year the place and food has changed for the worse.Smaller sandwiches not pressed and pork was bland.Inside seating was closed,credit card machine not working and no bread was served even after we asked for some..after coming here yearly for 10 years will not be back at this place again.Was my favorite place!!!

I am Cuban and was craving some. Wrong idea when the place is not staff by Cubans. The sweet plantains where hard, reheated and not the true delight they typically are. The rest was ok, but I will suggest if you want real Cuban food, go to mainland Miami. Better prices in general compared with the rest of the area

Wife wanted to try Cuban food and we were both pleasantly surprised!! She had grouper and continues to say how good it was!!! I had steak and must say it was also very good! Waitress kept our drinks topped off and made sure we didn’t need anything.
Overall a very pleasant experience and would recommend giving a try
