I really dont like leaving poor reviews but I just had too about this place. The staff was very friendly and the location looked nice and clean. The bread and flan where the only tasty food from our order. To start off i am Cuban and always make it a mission to stop at one Cuban restaurant while on vacation.... More

If you are looking for authentic Cuban food, stay away. The receiving hostess was nice, but does not speak a word of Spanish, did not even knew what a materva was. Granted, she is not the server, but she tried to fill in because after waiting several minutes no one came to our table, although there were 3 to 4... More

fantastic authentic cuban food at excellent prices. service can be slow but is probably due to the home cooked style meals. beer and wine available at reasonable prices. come early or make a reservation as the locals crowd up the joint most nights. no live music, no view ... just come for the food and you won't be disappointed. take...

I was skeptical at first since a lot of Cuban restaurants I have gone to don't really serve real Cuban food. I am Cuban so I can tell the difference. But this restaurant by far really serves true Cuban Cuisine. The dishes are reasonably price, they give you a lot of portion, the food tastes wonderful, and the service is... More

My wife and I have dined at this Gulfport gem for years.The Sangria is amazing and two people will enjoy the half carafe with dinner.The drunken shrimp is served with Cuban bread toasted for dipping and makes for a very large appetizer. It goes perfect paired with the small cuban salad.The dinners are $10.95 and up,too many choices to list.I... More

The food was very good, but not all of it was up to temperature. Service was good at a time when it was very crowded.

This place had great service and a wonderful setting inside. The dishes seemed very high priced. I don't like to just experiment with a dish I've never had to see if I even like it when it costs $15 plus dollars! So I settled for the sandwich combo. I had half a cuban with a Spanish salad. My cuban came... More

I love their summer dish. Cubans are great and they have this cuban coffee thing with whip cream and chocolate drizzle. I will be back!

In quirky Gulfport, this is a must-stop place. Try the sampler platter (betcha can't eat it all -- we always split it) with all this: pork/peppers/onions, shrimp w/capers in garlic butter, grilled chicken chunks w/artichokes in dilled cream sauce, rice, black beans, fried plantains, house salad and dessert (OMG the most awesome, creamy cheesecake/flan with caramelized brown sugar and butter...

Before you ask yes, I have traveled in most of the world. This is my favorite restaurant! Food is excellent, staff is friendly and the sangria is great. I have flown from Houston to Tampa airport just to rent a car and come here for dinner.....crazy, maybe, but it is worth it. We always add a beach trip to the... More
