This was my third time. Just after lunch hour. The service was excellent, so was the Mojito. The food was very good. You can find very good options in the menu that you do not find in regular restaurants, Will probably be back next month.

I'm very passionate about food, because of that I tend to be a strong critic of what I'm served on a plate. I go a lot to this restaurant, meaning that I'm a frequent client, and may I say the food is beautifully cooked. You have to try the paella with tostones. Most of the time we go here because... More

Marcelo's restaurant is an ok place to go if you are looking for a fast convenient and on the budget Cuban meal. It is pretty good. Staff were very attentive and kind. I would go again next time I go to my hometown.

The food and the service is good. The food flavor is great. Dont leave before drink a "cortadito" coffee.

Valet parking tells you to give him your car; instead of asking for it nicely and appropriately! Waiters are waiting to take plates away, while your eating!! And they bring you things from other tables to yours. Thank God the Chef is amazing & the Water/Bread guys are sociable!!

This is my place to go, for dinner in a known environment. I've visited the place for years. It has never undermined my expectations. As years go by, their efforts have been better. Food, I've come to expect it to be good; its always excellent! The pricing is very enticing.
