Delicious Cuban food- we had the shrimp enchiladas and ropa vieja and both were great. Definitely get the combo meal so you get rice, tostones and salad!

Good cuban restaurant near Gran Via, not a very fancy place but food is good and prices are ok. We paid 40€ for two main dishes a bottle of wine and a bottle of mineral water. We went there at 20:30 so we managed to get a table even though we had no reservation.

Great Cuban food! I was actually searching for Puerto Rican food, and although this restaurant does not serve Puerto Rican food, Cuban food has some similarities and is great too. As I walked in, I was warmly greeted and directed to a comfortable sitting area. The waitress was kind, quick, and prompt. The Cuban beer was awesome. The food was... More

We stpped in for drinks and snacks. The Cubanero beer was good. The pina colada good but small. The fried potatoes with picante sauce were excellent. The menu looked good...we will return.

After weeks travelling across Europa, I found this hole in the wall that reminded me alot of my culture. Being a puertorrican I know how this kind of food tastes and I can assure you that it is true authentic cuban cuisine. It felt just like home. I has the Ropa Vieja with tostones and it tasted great. Gracias!

I've had cuban food often and found myself pleasantly surprised by this whole in the wall place with a deep love for Hemingway. Servers were so attentive and friendly. The yucca in Mojo is ut of control delicious. Sit outside and people watch in a quiet part of a loud neighborhood.

As a former Miamian now based in London this was a real treat. You don't find authentic Cuban food very often, but I can certify that this was the real deal. I had the masitas (fried pork) and they and the rice and beans were incredible. Also had an authentic and varied dessert menu. Add in a very friendly and... More

While on vacation, I always try to find Cuban restaurants to get "a culture shot" and enjoy the food I like so much. Sometimes I have been disappointed and, like in this case, glad I found the restaurant. The food is as authentic as you can find anywhere in Hialeah...LOL. Eventing wee tried had that "punto". Great service.

Great authentic Cuban food which we found by pure luck. Employees are accommodating and they have La Cerveza De Cuba. Couldn't just go once but somehow incorporated them into dinner 3 nights while staying at the Hotel Atlantico.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
