Was promising at first, but over-priced and under-whelming. Service good though. Worst meal we had in 3 weeks travelling the US.

Typical Cuban food with an outdoor patio. Odd though that not one of the waiters who worked outside looked Hispanic. Food was average as Cuban restaurants go, and black beans served were like the mashed beans you get in a Durcal bag at the grocery store. Sangria was mostly red wine and had a bitter taste. We love to try... More

Very touristic, expensive, and not that much cuban. Cocktails are not cuban, but very tasty, we liked it.

Visited Mercedes Cuban grill by chance and so glad we did. We were in Venice beach trying to fit in one more place to visit before heading to airport to fly home, we arrived early and enjoyed a great breakfast! We took advantage of the half price omelette specials that came with toast and fruit, and it was delicious and... More

We love this place for breakfast but lunch and dinner are good also. Been going here for years. Go early on the weekends or it gets crowded. Their huevos ranchero is one of the best in the city. Everything is great on their menu.

Halfway through a two week holiday and have already been here 3 times. Perfect for chilling, great quality food for all, service is attentive but not in your face we've had the same server (Mac) and he has made us feel like we are locals. So far we've done breakfast, lunch and weekend brunch now going back for dinner.

Stumbled on this place and what a find, when you've had enough of the usual American fast stuff, pizza and pasta, this is a great place to go. Excellent service and food , will be back.

Stumbled upon this place walking to Venice Beach. Good happy hour drink and appetizer specials (even on Friday). Went back for breakfast for the half price omelettes from 8-9 am on weekdays. For $6 we got huge omelettes stuffed with fillings. They were delicious. We knew it was a good find when we noticed lots of local eating there.
