Reliable meal at a good price and great staff!

My husband is a Cuban food aficionado and will seek it out wherever he is so he was very pleased to find this pleasant restaurant. The portions are generous and the staff is friendly and efficient. The fried plantains are a favorite.

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.

I've tried a couple of Cuban restaurants and this one is hands down my favourite. They have great service and all the staff are friendly and pleasant and the food is very flavourful. Plus on Friday nights they have live music so you can go and dance salsa. The only downside is that there isn't much room to dance, but... More

We come here every time that we visit Madrid, so we have been here many times, now. The young staff are welcoming and friendly, and the food is reliably good. This is not "fine dining", but it is genuine Cuban food, and is much better than we often had in Havana. Madrileño food is wonderful, but sometimes it is nice... More

Just had the most amazing lunch at this little restaurant in Madrid. The food was delicious, authentic and made with quality ingredients. The service was friendly and helpful. I was able to taste things I had not eaten since I left Cuba 45 years ago! We need one of these in Sydney :-)

A little restaurant hidden on a side street of Calle Preciados near la plaza del Callao. Authentic Cuban food. I Had the ropa vieja and it tasted just like my mom's. Too bad I found it on the last night in Madrid.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
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.
