Service has greatly improved and food is still great

We eat here when we are in Venice but the service has always been so slow. When we returned this year, we were pleasantly surprised at the great service. We love the food here and we were so happy for the great service. Don't miss this place.

To start the experience it was a Beautiful day and a very friendly hostess. The waiter was nice but he was not very good at all. Then to be topped by an unappealing dinner. Greasy Grilled Tuna and some fried greasy plantains that tasted the same as the Tuna. To be followed by them forgetting my French Fires and Salad... More

Conveniently located by the beach. I started with a Cuban Mojito and it was delicious. The Cuban pork sandwich was great too! Had to wait forever to use their restroom - only one for each gender is available. Still, it was a good experience and we will probably visit again if we are in the area in the future.

To start with Mercede's Grill has a wonderful location - just 2-minutes walk from the pier -what makes it a perfect place to get a quick coffee when you go for a beach walk. The place has a lovely terrace and nice waiters. The food is also nice - we tried there Platanos Fritos, which are the best I've tried... More

I love the choices here. Delicious and healthy choices and more hearty dishes as well. The food is well prepared and good. Eat inside or out. Service is not always perfect, but it will do.

Great breakfast spot. Would not know from the outside that what is inside would be fantastic. Friendly service, good coffee and a great cubano omelet. New breakfast spot for me when I am in town.

We stopped by for lunch and when we asked the server how large the Cuban sandwich was, told that it really "wasn't that big" so both of us ordered food. We were also told to get the breakfast potatoes because the "fruit wasn't so great." Well....the sandwich is big enough to share (and not that great), and the egg omelet... More
