This restaurant was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. I had the roast pork and my wife had the chicken. The food was very flavorful, plentiful and the service was great!

Good Cuban/Puerto Rican and Caribbean food. Went with a family and had a good time. It is an older building but well maintained inside and clean. Service was a bit slow but friendly. Parking was tough, you may need to find a place nearby. But if you are in the mood for this kind of food this is the place... More

I first ate here about 3 years ago and have been waiting to go back. This trip I went for lunch, twice. I had a Cuban sandwich one day, and the roast pork the next. Both were awesome. Service is friendly and quick. It was modestly busy even at lunch in the off season. The prices are very good for... More

Okay food. We were sat at table and cooks, servers. cashier, owner and dishwasher stand there staring at you. Good conch soup. Real close to where our bed and breakfast was at-off the beaten path.

We went out of our way to find this place as I read good things about it. But it was just ok. There were a few regulars there - that seemed to know the best food to order, but we obviously didn't order the right thing. The rice and beans were so-so, my husband's grouper was ok. I did enjoy... More

Liked this place as a lunch stop. A little way from town, but to try authentic cuban fare this is it.

Thanks for following up with us, Shawn! It sounds like we hit the mark for you overall, so we're a little disappointed to see you felt we only earned three stars. In any case, we'd love to see you again soon for the 5-star experience we know we're capable of! All the best, El Siboney Restaurant Team More

My husband and I tried it for dinner because it was recommended by friends and our hotel. Many reviews say it's the best Cuban in Key West, which is probably true. We thought the food was delicious! I got the roasted pork with cassava (yucca) and tamale and my husband got the skirt steak with black beans, rice and plantains.... More

We ate supper here three times during our week-long stay in Key West. If you love steak, the skirt steak (the El Siboney steak) is the way to go. It is so delicious. I've tried re-creating this at home but can't get it quite right. It's not fancy, but the prices are not bad (for Key West). It's not right... More

Three times in one week is some compliment, Angel! Our chefs are going to love hearing how much you enjoyed that signature skirt steak, as well as our complimentary Cuban bread -- that's something we love to serve while you're waiting for your entrees. We'd love to cook for you again on your next trip to the Keys! All the... More
