Well worth going off the beaten path for this gem. One of our local contacts told us it's not to miss and to say we had a taste of Cuba is an understatement. The plantains were delicious, the sangria nice, and we sampled off of each other's dishes (there was 8 of us) because one dish was better than the... More

They have an simple theme, definitely homey, unpretentious atmosphere. Family friendly, space for large group. The food was wonderful, well spiced, (I had the bistec palomilia with white rice and black beans. Huge portions! Our waiter was helpful at the beginning and then I think he forgot we were there. We asked for a box, he left and never came... More

The food here was delicious! The servers are very friendly. I had the meatballs, they were fantastic. Very large portions, took it back to the hotel and finished them off in the evening.

After spending the day in Key West, we wanted something different--and El Siboney was definitely the ticket! A blend of Cuban and Nicaraguan cuisines, it's a local's restaurant to be sure--there's no atmosphere to speak of--but the food and service made up for it. The prices are very reasonable (especially considering it's in KW!), the portions large, and the people... More

A group of us went to El Siboney on a weekend night. It took a little time to get seated, but when you show up with 9 people and no reservation then you get what you deserve. We chose this place because of the strong desire for good Cuban food without having to invade Cuba again. Were not disappointed. As... More

We went there following the trip advisor reviews, when we arrived, we were shocked by the place, not pretty at all. Never the less, we stayed for dinner and left so disappointed with the food, which we thought it was awful. The staff was friendly and the price was inexpensive. It you want to have good Cuban food, try one... More

Very authentic Cuban with a very unpretentious neighborhood feel. Food was excellent. I'd go back again.
