Best Cuban Cuisine Ever!!!

Had dinner here while in Key West. It was our last night there and we wanted it to be a special one! Walked here from our resort, parking is limited. You will most likely find a line to get in. No worries though, they have a great system. You get a number rather than giving your name or getting a... read more

Arrived late on a Sunday, place was really hopping. Lots of families and couples. Service was fast considering how busy they were, and staff was super friendly (apologizing when a special was not available and offering alternatives). Black beans/rice/plantains were all fresh and excellent - as were the chicken and pork entrees. Would certainly visit again.

Being born in Key West I have gone here many times with my family. Off of the beatin' path, quite a challenge for the average tourist to find. A locals Cuban food eatery with fabulous food. The Skirt steak or Siboney steak is my favorite however the soups and sandwiches are also great.

The worst place I ever been to for dinner. May be we were there in such a large group. On 7/19/2015, we made advance reservation for party of 10. Its took forever to get cup of water and order our foods. Horrible services and horrible foods. After the meals, we seat there nearly 40 minutes like idiots waited for check.

After hearing about El Siboney many times, we finally had a chance to go and have lunch there. We were told that the Cuban sandwiches were big so we split one and had some croquettas. The food was delicious and held up to the expectations of what we had been hearing about this restuarant. Definitely the best cuban sandwich on... More

The food is outstanding! The service is great and food comes out quickly. The prices are very reasonable. This is the best Spanish restaurant I have ever been to. I wish they had one closer to where I live.

We showed up with 6 people around 6pm and were seated right away. It's not a quiet restaurant...people are talking and enjoying themselves. I had the half roasted chicken. Wow. Crunchy outside and so yummy. Plantains are fantastic as were the black beans. Roast pork: fantastic. My son didn't like the special though which, on Thursday, was BBQ ribs, said... More

The food is authentic, fresh, yummy and a great value! Best hidden gem in Key West. It's a must-go every time we're in town.
