This is a busy restaurant near Mallory Square. The staff was top notch from the hostess to the waiter. The food was OK. We ordered the Cuban sandwich and a Steak sandwich. I was disappointed that the ham in the Cuban was cold. The sandwich was pressed. I have had better Cubans for sure. The steak was just OK. I... More

We have eaten here a number of times in the past but this visit we opted to just sit at the outside bar and have a mojito......thinking it would have to be good at a Cuban restaurant. How wrong we were! After we had ordered our drinks I spotted a sign hanging above the bar advertising "Bacardi Mojito Mixers". I... More

We loved our visit to this restaurant. We chose from the tapas selection (lots of choice!) the calamari and conch fritters were amazing. Nice jug of sangria which was quite potent and we finished off with the best key lime pie we tasted while in Key West. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed the live music and hustle and... More

Ate there years ago and loved it. Went back this time and it was terrible. The one menu item I loved was not available ( how is sausage and cheese not available) and we waited over 20 minutes to even get acknowledged in a half full restaurant. Left a couple bucks for the water and left. Went to Carolines instead... More

Good Cuban food. The Cuban bread with two dips is awesome. We had the Antojitos appetizer and it was marvelous. Chorizo, plantains, and fried cheese. Watch Sunset at Mallory Square from our table and enjoyed live music.

THE premier place for Cuban food cooked to perfection. The whole fried yellow tail is our favorite. Location next to Mallory Square is a plus. Also the best mojito we had in the Keys. Seek out Augusto, as a server there is none better.

Hubby and I absolutely loved this Cuban Restaurant. Felt like we were in Cuba. Roosters walking around the patio area where we sat. Roosters in the trees. We enjoyed listening to the live music. We had the Churrasco (Skirt steak) for dinner and it was to die for. Key lime pie for dessert was wonderful. Love the decor inside. Feels... More
