This place is amazing. If you want to experience authentic Cuban food and atmosphere this is the place to go. It is true that menus are in Spanish only and staff does not speak English but the food makes up for all that. To complete your experience finish the meal with shot of espresso you order from the outside window.

Fast service ,tasty food , attentive waitresses and the Cuban coffee. Someone once told me that when you go to a place and you see the cops eating there ,the food has to be good because these guys know all the good food spots and they were eating here. I loved the rice and black beans and the shredded beef... More

Good local Cuban cuisine in a casual restaurant. Friendly staff and fast service. Portions were very large and food was tasty, but (to my taste) underseasoned and a bit bland. But salt and pepper fixed that right up. I had enough leftover from mine and my husband's meals to have supper at home for two the next night.

I had read great reviews on this place before we visited Hollywood. We were unable to get there for dinner, so before we left we stopped in for lunch. Service was rather slow, since we were the only people there at the time. The chef left as we arrived. They were sold out of the lunch special, which sounded devine.... More

Price can't beat, but place looks dirty and decoration sucks, is not a cozy place at all. Breakfast is ok but bacon is too greasy and egg not well done. But what you pay is what you get. You have to chase servers. I'd rather order at the outside window station, very nice and attentive ladies.

I asked one of the cuban waiters at our hotel lounge to suggest a restaurant. He suggested this. Average looking shopping plaza. Restaurant is clean and food is excellent. I ate my red snapper fillet, yellow rice, black beans very quickly and wanted more. I ordered cuban coffee which was sweet and rich and absolutely delicious. I got a check... More

I don't know how "authentic" the Cuban food is....but it was damn good, all the same. My hubby and I had the liver (2 different kinds) and my kids had burgers. The cheeseburgers were enormous and the kids loved them. The atmosphere might not be upscale - but the quality of the food is. SUPER KID FRIENDLY which is the... More

Breakfast was very basic, but very good. I recommend coming here if you are nearby. The coffee is great, and the prices are reasonable, better food and value than eating on the Broadwalk.

We visit Hollywood every summer for a month and every day we have breakfast at Senor Cafe. The value is fantastic. The bacon, eggs, cuban toast, and french fries are delicious! The cafe con leche is great! The service is fast and friendly. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a delicious breakfast. Great parking and... More

A local suggested this place as good value and typical of Cuban cuisine so we decided to give it a try since we never had a tasted of Cuban cuisine. It is very very basic diner with tables outside as well as inside, very poor service and some bad attitude by the waitresses. The menu has many items but we... More
