Best food ever!!! I got the Siboney Steak and my husband got the grouper... Could not believe how delicious it all was! And the Cuban bread!!!! Heard from a local to try this place and couldn't believe how great the food and service was!! Staff is friendly and service was so quick! The homemade Sangria was amazing!

Great food, great service, but roaches on the wall! I had a very good fish, shrimps rice and beans! The Arnold Palmer was good and I had a fantastic flan at the end! Like I said the only minus is that roaches were "walking" on the wall:)

I'm from Tennessee and I heard about this place from a friend of a friend in Minnesota. I was not disappointed. 5 of us ate here for a late lunch. It was great. I had the Del Monico steak, salad, rice and fried plantains. Friends had other steaks and a couple had chicken. Everyone raved about their food. The service... More

We've been coming to El Siboney for years and we have never had a bad meal. It's more a locals place so the service is slow and there's always some people hanging around speaking Spanish - but the food more than makes up for the waits! I just cannot find a bad thing to say about this place - huge... More

One of the employees at our hotel recommend this restaurant. It is a local place, off the beaten path. It has a simple decor and a very fast-paced atmosphere. It is a highly organized chaos. It is all about the food. The food was fresh, perfectly seasoned, and the portions were large. Their homemade sangria was the best sangria we've... More

Great place in Key West off the beaten path. This is where the locals go. Fantastic meals. I had the shredded beef. Meal comes with rice, bean soup and plantains. If you truly love plantains, you know how hard it is to get a good side dish of them. These were worth flying to Key West again!!! Order a glass... More

I worked in Miami for about 10 years and had Cuban food whenever I wanted it. Sometimes even homemade by people at work who would make something and bring it in to share. Now that I live in Orlando I haven't found a good let alone a great place. We asked around and everyone we talked to suggested El Siboney... More

We loved this detailed feedback, Donald -- it's always a pleasure to hear from a well-versed Cuban food fan! We're so glad you listened to those recommendations and gave our place a try. We hope it's not long before you're back down from Orlando -- for more of that Ropa Vieja, if nothing else! Cheers, El Siboney Restaurant Team More
