It's crowded, very popular, and worth the wait. Not fancy, no frills, just good food. I've been there at least 3-4 times, but my husband has been there many more. It's walkable from Duval St, or you can ride your bike.

We've been going to Key West for 20 years and El Siboney is a restaurant we go to each time and usually more than once. Everything on the menu is great, but our favorites are the half garlic chicken, the garlic shrimp, the pork tenderloin, and the steak. The aromas out of their kitchen will make your mouth water.

A new friend recommended this place. Food was delightful and plentiful. My wife had shredded steak and I went for a fish dish, really delicious. Service good and quick. Highly recommended for a taste of some home cooked, authentic and plentiful food. PS - this place is nice and casual (flip flops, shorts) so please don't think it's a fancy... More

Boring food, rude cashier (she would not even help my date when he wanted to buy a cigar!), and some dude was using the lady's room. I know it was a guy, I saw his parts. I do not ever want to go back.

I consider myself pretty good at judging Cuban food as I grew up in Miami and have eaten jot at many places. This was one of the best Cuban restaurants I have ever visited. We got there fairly early as it is in walking distance from my sister in law's home. We were seated quickly and water was already on... More

We're thrilled to have won over a Cuban food fan such as yourself! A lot of love's gone into perfecting our dishes, so to hear that everything tasted "amazingly delicious" really makes our day. The next time you're visiting your in-laws, we'd love to welcome you back -- there are many more dishes still to try! Until then, El Siboney... More

Best meal we had in the Keys. Went there twice in our week long stay, and we were an hour away in Marathon. Our 13 and 15 yr. old boys also voted it the best. Loved the roast pork, and the tamales. Yes the plantain portion on the plate was small, which is why we ordered a side of plantains... More

We visited El Siboney on our last night in Key West. Our host as Andrews Inn recommended this restaurant and I'm so glad she did (thanks Lisa!). The place was packed but we were seated right away by a very friendly older gentleman. Our server had our food out in less than ten minutes it seemed, and the portions were... More
