Soooo glad we did, stop that is. Very extensive menu with too many items that tempted the taste buds. Finally I... read more

We picked up take out while visiting the area. There was nothing about this meal I did not love, even the beans and I don't like beans. So much flavour. We will definitely go back and would recommend to anyone.

Awesome Cuban food, wonderful service and great ambience. We all had the $19.95 Cuban 3 small entrée combo, which came with salad, black beans/rice, plantains, 3 Cuban dishes and their FABULOUS Flan.. What a bargain at that price and will be back next time in the St. Pete area.. We could barely eat it all and all thought it was... More

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.

Had a recommendation to try this place from a friend of mine who used to live in the area. We decided to do carryout. We tried the traditional cuban sandwich, the mojo pork, black bean soup, and black beans and rice. All food was fresh and delicious. My wife and I decided the sandwich was not as good as our...

Had a "Cuban style" chicken salad and my husband had the pork sandwich. Large portions, decent prices, great service. Great place for lunch!

This was a long awaited treat and did not disappoint. Four of us ate for under $100 before tip. We had the table for three hours.The Lechon Asado was excellent! Every other menu item we saw was a reason to go back. Parking is limited and the sangria a bit too sweet, But man, the pork and the black beans... More

If you're unfamiliar with Cuban cuisine, I highly recommend the sampler platter. It was delicious and even included an awesome cream cheese flan for dessert.
