authentic Cuban food, but busy location!

A bunch of family and I went to El Siboney for dinner on the recommendation of my mother, who absolutely loves Cuban food and really loves this restaurant. Overall, it's authentic Cuban food, but it didn't blow me away. Definitely the secret is out about this place, because it's far away from... read more

I live one month every summer in the Keys. For my birthday, at my request, the first place we eat is El Siboney. Their food is authentic Cuban, and is Delicious! For the last five years, the only thing I eat is their garlic chicken. Half a chicken with garlic rub and cooked onions. All entrees come with either black... More

Authentic and extremely tasty Cuban food. The service was prompt and courteous. This is located away from the touristy hustle bad bustle off the beaten path but worth the experience. We ordered the Paella Valenciana and it was marvelous. PS: they make the paella when you order it so be prepared to relax for an hour while this delicious meal... More

I selected this place because it was close to our hotel, had great ratings, and the menu seemed interesting. We were not disappointed. The pork was so flavorful an the portions were perfect. My wife had fish and it was also incredibly flavorful giving both of us a new culinary experience. Personally neither of us liked the sangria. It was... More

Great food and good portions . The food is flavorful. Many times there is a wait to be seated but well worth it. They also offer take out which is what I usually do just to make things simpler for me. Friendly staff always willing to make things better if you have questions

Love this place - such yummy Cuban food with a relaxed, fun environment. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED in the fabulous deliciousness! I'm back for the second time in less than a week and plan to keep coming back. I ordered skirt steak, yellow rice, and plantains (with plenty of hot sauce added). This time I ate pork and tamale....

From the time we approached the building we knew it would be authentic Cuban food. We were immediately seated and offered warm, buttered Cuban bread. Yum! We both ordered the shrimp in garlic sauce with yellow rice and black beans. It was all wonderful and delivered quickly. Truly one of my best meals in the Keys. Loved it!
