More than excellent

This restaurant far exceeded my expectations. We ordered a plate that had four different items on it for only 1999. The flan was the best I have ever tasted. Situated in a beautiful building. Great staff.

The food was delicious - lechon asado, dill chicken, camarones borracho, Cuban bread, black beans and rice. The award winning flan was delicious! Prices were reasonable. Relaxed and casual atmosphere.

Great place for a cuban sandwich and flan. The award winning flan is amazing. Relaxed atmosphere. Not a place to go to if you are in a rush.
