Several of us ordered shredded beef and I ordered meat balls. The food was wonderful. Fried plantains, black beans and yellow rice were included with our meals. Two of us enjoyed a sangria and they actually had sweet tea. Not all restaurants here have sweet tea. All 8 of us really enjoyed our meal.

My wife and I enjoyed the meal there. Ropa Vieja was so good! My wife had the garlic chicken. She thought it was not as good as El Verde in Rio Grande, PR., but still good. The black beans complemented the rest of the plate. The room is a little loud, which you can expect with tile floors and mostly... More

Can't believe how good this was!! I've never had Cuban food and so happy we stumbled into this place. It was a suggestion from some locals we met and I myself would highly recommend this to anyone. Affordable, delicious and huge portions. The only negative I would give it, is that there was a wait, but worth it IMO.

I just loved this place. The food was phenomenal...I had the roast pork, yellow rice, black beans. I couldn't eat it all and really couldn't take it back with me. I was starving on my way home to reality last night in the car and was wishing I had my leftovers! Can't wait to return again someday.

My father loves this restaurant. He insisted on me going while I was in Key West visiting family. I had the palomilla steak with black beans, yellow rice and fried plantains. It was typical Cuban cuisine, but quite delicious! My buddy had his first Cuban mix here and was blown away. They stock a decent selection of beers that will... More

We went here at the suggestion of a colleague and the food and service was excellent. This place is away from all of the tourist attractions and is frequented by locals and tourists alike.

We were told by friends to go to this Cuban restaurant and are we ever grateful. I don't know if we would have found it if we just passed it on our own. The food is out and out fantastic. I had the Cuban Sandwich , which was delish. But a friend had the "Ropa Viejo" which was even better.... More

Delicious!! We had the sangria wine, signature skirt steak, black beans with yellow rice, fried plantains and Cuban bread. Every item on the "taste scale" was a 10, period !! Absolutely delicious.

A favorite place to eat. Their flat iron steak is our favorite. They are always busy, but the wait is never long. Service is always friendly and fast. A great family business. Make sure you visit El Siboney!
