Good authentic Cuban food

This is just a small hole in the wall cafe' really, but the locals swear by it. Lots of blue collar types sit at the bar. There are only a few tables. The owner is Cuban and the food is good and genuine Cuban fare. I ate lunch here and got two special plates. With tip, about $30. That... read more

We were visiting our son who lives in the area. You can locate this place by the neon green lights in the window. It is located in the end of a small strip shopping building. You walk in and the area is big enough just to hold four tables for 4 and one table for two. I believe there are... More

Such a great place. The owner Alberto makes you feel so welcome. We pulled up and the restaurant doesn't look great. It is very small inside but we waited at the bar till one of the 5 or 6 tables was empty. While sitting at the bar we passed food and drinks to tables - just as you would do... More

So it's a little place - doesn't look like much from the outside...or inside. Just 6 tables. Food was reasonably priced and tasted great.

we went based on trip advisor reviews, and we were glad we did. located just off the main drag in a small stip mall, the restaurant is small and the exterior is not attractive. Go in anyway. the roast pork was great (and pork is not ordinarily my favorite meat). My companion had the beeef special which was good, but... More

I am Cuban and all the dishes we ordered tasted authentic (if you like Cuban food, you know how hard it is to find authentic dishes) and were so amazingly delicious. I ordered the picadillo with black beans and rice (raw onions in the mix is a must!) and my husband ordered the ropa vieja. Even the kids were eating... More

If you like Cuban food...they have it. If you like Mexican food...they have it. Mom and Pop restaurant where the pop ( Alberto ) is Cuban and the mom ( Maria ) is Mexican. The food is authentic and really tasty. Great Cuban sandwich but don't stop there. Try one of the many lunch specials they have. If you want... More

The other reviews are true and accurate! They were closing a little early, but still served us. Would definitely recommend!

This is truly one of the best little gems in all of Brevard County. I'd come here for lunch often when working at Cape Canaveral, and spent hours talking to the owners about everything you can think of. Alberto and Maria are such beautiful people, full of love, and it truly shows in the food and warm hospitality. Take your... More

Seek this one out if you want authentic Cuban/Mexican food. It is an extremely small building- not many tables. We were greeted by the owners- we had such a good time with them! Our meal was delicious- and big portions. Cuban shrimp, Rope Viejo, Roast Pork- all delicious. The pico was HOT. Fresh baked bread. Fresh flan. Also- cuban coffee... More
