would have eaten there every day I was in Key West. No Cuban food in our home town so this was just incredible. Casual atmosphere, nothing fancy, felt comfortable ordering multiple items and sharing everything. Friendly service.

This restaurant had a very comfortable atmosphere, almost like going to a friends house for dinner. The Cuban bread was delicious. I had the pork which I would definitely recommend. Also liked the black beans and yellow rice. Make sure you get the plantains, yummy.

This little place was amazing! The food was cooked to perfection! I could have eaten here everyday - We were there at 11am when they opened, which was a good choice - the place get VERY busy and space is limited - Come hungry and leave very satisfied!

Authentic Cuban cuisine, very large proportions, enough to share a dish for sure. Service was excellent. We loved it!

Have been here several times and have never been disappointed. The only thing lacking, this time was the service. Maybe she was having a bad day. Food was excellent-prices are fair

Friends recommended this restaurant and boy what a treat. If you want white linen tablecloths, this is not your place. But if you want great Cuban food, this is not to be missed. The Cuban bread is addicting and the sangrias are the most delicious sangrias we have ever had. My grilled shrimp and my husband's steak were excellently prepared.... More

I visit Key West annually and El Siboney is always my first stop. If you're looking for a linen table cloth and all the trappings that go with, please pass this place by and give the rest of us your table. If you're looking for some of the best Cuban food around, belly up and order the #1. No need... More

We love knowing we're your very first stop when you touch down in Key West! Great call with that #1, too -- though you should definitely pull yourself away from it to try out some other entrees next time around. We'd love to hear what you think of them, too!

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.
