A nice find in Scottsdale for Cuban cuisine. I had the tostones and the bistek encebollado with moros and maduros. All was flavorful and the portions were ample.

My wife and I both decided on different chicken dishes, and they were both overcooked and tough. The rice and black beans were so-so with very little spice or flavor. Definitely will not be going back there,

I moved to Phoenix from the east coast about 3 years ago. I knew after reading other reviews that I couldn't be to critical but I have to say that the food was just eh. Something I ate that was suppose to be mofongo was a bit runny. Rice had way to much coloring and was salty.. I had the... More

It was just ok. $15 for a sandwich with very little meat was expensive. Probably will not return. The mojito had way too much mint.

Decided to try this venue rather than driving down to their other restaurant on Camelback. We figured we'd have a better chance of being seated here because the other venue is quite small. There is also ample parking. At around 7PM the place started filling up. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of space this restaurant had. It was... More

Nice funky atmosphere. Helpful service to explain menu, but rest of service without character or much interest--just put the plate on the table. Food pretty bland. Too much lime sauce overwhelmed one dish. Crispy pork morsels is best bet. Mini desserts were nice. Overall not really worth the trip.

Food is now just OK - Service is with an attitude. This used to be a fun place but has now gone down the road of we were once successful so now we do not have to try anymore. Prices have jumped a lot in the past 3 years.

I have been twice and the experience was not good. Firts at all, it seems the rice is the main dish and not the side dish. I ordered shrimps and the dish was five shrimps and one pund of rice! For the price they charge I am expecting something better. The pork is just terrible, not any taste at all
