Best Cuban food ever. The sangria is fantastic. Service was excellent. Prices were rational. A little out of the Main Street but worth a cab ride.

This place is a victim of its success. The wait for a table on a Tuesday night was over 45 minutes. They wouldn't take reservations. Fix those 2 things and this would have been 5 stars instead of 4. Food was excellent! Compared to what we ate in Havana recently, the quality here was much better.

It's a first time visit for my wife and me. The ambiance looks good and the attendants are well receptive. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. we both enjoyed eating especially the yellow rice and the fish variety we ordered. I went to this based on the previous reviews and we are not disappointed and we both... More

We went here for lunch based upon a recommendation from the firemen at the firehouse museum and could not have been happier with their choice. Like Cuban food? The this is a place not to be missed. Just about everything on the menu looks delicious, but I settled for the roast pork and couldn't have been happier - in a... More

We always make a visit to El Siboney during our KeyWest vacation. It is away from the tourist area, in a quiet neighborhood. The service and authentic Cuban food are excellent. The roast pork with onions, beans and yellow rice are really great. I also love the plantains they serve with the meal. We will definitely return!

Have been here many times and have tried several things on the menu and eaten here and taken food to go. The Cuban Sandwich is a real star o. The menu, no doubt. It is very authentic and combines all of the things that make this sandwich legendary. Crusty bread with ham and pork, mustard and pickles. Simple and so... More

Gone here for many years. It appears the management has focused on fast food and quick dollars. The food is terrible and service is a match. We won't be going back again. A disappointing lunch for this vacation in Key West.
