Great local and tourist friendly spot. Best bang for the buck you are going to find in Key West! The conch chowder is the best you can find in all the Florida keys, Ive tried many and theirs is by far the best. The El Siboney steak is portioned huge and delicious as are most of their daily specials. Portions... More

Not on the main street of Duval, this place is easy to miss, but hard to forget. After visiting Key West many times, a local told us about El Siboney. A unique Cuban restaurant exists on 900 Catherine Street, a few blocks east of south Duval Street. El Siboney is tucked into a neighborhood. It is an "institution" amongst the... More

Just spent 6 days in Keys and ate 3 meals here.Enough said? Always ask locals where they'd eat and El Siboney came up more than anywhere else. First night my husband tried #6 grilled pork tenderloin and was amazed..by food and service. Huge cut of meat,plenty to share. Best rice pudding EVER. Had to return for oxtail lunch special the...

My husband had the special of the day--beef stew--and loved it. I had roast pork and my mother couldn't have done a better job! The restaurant was very attractive and clean and service was good--plus we didn't have to wait more than a few minutes to get seated. Highly affordable for Key West. A great find!

Found out about this place from locals. The food was absolutely delicious. Everything we ordered was great- special of the day stew, Cuban sandwich, etc. The portions were huge, and the price very reasonable. Service was wonderful.

We were here several years ago and just felt it was fair overall. We decided to give it another try and were very disappointed after a long 45 minute wait.The food was nothing special. The black beans were cold and not very flavorful.M skirt steak was good but my wife's fried grouper was over done and dry the worst we... More

I understand that this restaurant has received rave reviews. I also can see its popularity by the people waiting outside for a table. My friend and I were interested in the Paella Valencia - a favourite of ours. We pre-ordered for 7 pm dining (as close to a reservation as you can get). We arrived well before 7 and still... More

This restaurant was recommended to us. It did not disappoint. A short wait at dinner time (20 minutes) for what I would call cuban home cooking. Nothing fancy, just great food.

I will only eat Cuban again if its as good as El Siboney. 4 of us went by a recommendation from a local. None of us were disappointed. It was my favorite meal while I was in Key West.

This was the only Cuban restaurant we visited in Key West, so we're glad we picked this one. The food was very good - we ordered the #1 (pork), based on recommendations. Even the black beans were excellent, as was the flan (surprisingly orange in color). Portions were generous - enough for a doggy bag. In an effort to have... More
