Great neighbor joint serving up good Cuban food

Local restaurant off the beat & path that serves up good Cuban food. The pork is the best (along with their bread!). Does not have a full bar.

This is a great locals place always busy but great food and prices! We had both meat and vegetarian dishes and they were cooked great and flavorful without being overpowering.

El Siboney was randomly recommended to us by our taxi driver and we we're thankful for that. It was only two blocks from our hotel so we walked over for that day for lunch. The door never closes because so many people come in for their delicious food. I had the garlic shrimp which was amazing. They give you more... More

A no frills, cuban eatery that focuses on the food. Atmosphere is a bit harsh for the lush Keys, but service and quality were excellent. Traditional cuban food with hearty portions. Would be "just another place" on Calle Ocho in Miami, but stands out for quality in the Keys.

Very authentic. The food is great. We always over eat but it's worth it. The service is great and they're very patient with folks who ask a lot of questions.

We went to this neighborhood, authentic Cuban restaurant based on a friend's recommendation. It didn't disappoint! We waited about 25 minutes for a table for 2 on a Monday night. However we were greeted right away and felt welcome. All the waitstaff were very efficient but extremely friendly. The food was good, my only complaint was that the meat was... More

Always a line but moves fast. Family run restaurant with basic food and plenty of it. We had roast pork, with beans and rice with plantains. I had it with yucca and tamales. Not haute cusine, but good food.

The food was delicious! I had the Yellowtail and the spices in the breaking were perfect! My husband had the churrasco and it was cooked perfectly! Loved the seafood and Cuban combination. Prices were very reasonable. Service was great. We had talked about their paella, but it was an hour wait. If we had known, we would have planned to... More

My husband and I enjoyed lunch after receiving El Siboney as a recommendation. We were not disappointed. We arrived around 2 o'clock so there was no wait and were seated immediately. It was apparent that this is a favorite for locals as there were not many obvious tourists like ourselves. My husband ordered chicken and rice which was excellent. I... More

You and your husband were not obnoxious at all, Elizabeth! Everyone is a part of the family when they eat with us -- that's the Cuban way. We're glad you found us and hope to see you again sooner or later. Thanks again, El Siboney Restaurant Team More
