Have a drink, watch the sunset

This is a great place to relax at Mallory Square for a drink and watch the sunset. The people watching is good too. They often have a small band playing outside as well. Meet friends, catch up on the day and enjoy!

Fabulous for lunch, we have also had dinner there at another time, but we were only there for the day this time. Great service by Madelein. The Cayo Hueso Cuban Mix sandwich was awesome. And the Mojito!!!

It has been an institution for many reasons. Start with a Mojito. It has a relaxed ambiance, indoor and outdoor, although it has a commercial angle to it too. The menu covers many Cuban and Latin options so every one is happy! Study the menu and share the classics or venture into unknown dishes, you can not miss, After all... More

We went here for lunch on a Sunday. Not much of a party scene and quiet at midday, which is fine. The food was awesome! Even if you've never had Cuban food before and are not sure you'll like it, they will have something for you. Lechon Asado was one of the best pork dishes I've ever had. My husband... More

Though not quite as good a value as El Siboney, El Meson De Pepe was excellent as well as convenient while shopping near Mallory Square. I ordered from the Tapas section of the menu, and it certainly was not a small plate! I ordered the Antojitos, fried cheese and chorizo or a bed of plantain chips and we both could... More

Wanted something quick bc we only had a day. Was able to get in quick and enjoy one of the best meals of my life, made us slow down and enjoy. Great meal, really recommend the coffee with milk. Do not pass this up!
