This open air eatery on Flagler and Red Rd is not for the germaphobic as it is not enclosed but let me tell you, the food is great, the juices fresh and the atmosphere is like being in Cuba! We ordered one "completa" with roasted pork, congris and yuca con mojo. It was more than enough for the two of... More

The place serves authentic Cuban food, it's not a restaurant. The food is ready and you pick it and go. Or you can sit and eat outside on some of their picnic type tables. The ladies that serve are a little rude and don't have patience , but, it is a to-go place so you better be quick in what... More

I rarely get cuban food so during a quick stop over in Miami I had to get some. El Palacio was highly recommended on several websites so we gave it a try. Due to its proximity to the airport we went to the restaurant on Flagler street which was open air with almost a cafeteria type feel. Although there was... More

I have taken many foreign students to this location. Yes, of course, never did they expect such an array of different choices! The selection is mesmerizing delicious and one would want to try it all once one had a first choice. It looks like a market; you can hear the orders in Cuban Spanish; you can smell the aromatic rice... More

Overall THE BEST CUBAN food I have ever eaten. Whenever I come Miami, I make sure to stop at this amazing, down to earth, Cuban style restaurant. The food is AMAZING. Great selection of Cuban entrees that change everyday. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want Cuban food. The downside, tHey DONT speak English.

We only had a chance to try the tostones, maduros, plantain chips, chicharon and some of the juices (mango, cantaloupe, papaya) but all were delicious and fresh. There is a huge selection of authentic Cuban dishes (rice, meats, stews) all at very reasonable prices. There is a guy selling something similar to coconut - he cuts it open and puts... More

This location is close to the airport. We went there to check it out as soon as we arrived in Miami. It looks very authentic and popular among Latinos. We tried the lechon (pork meat), with fried yuca, sweet potato and rice&beans. Everything was delicious. The meat was moist and very tasty. The portions are huge. For 2 meals we... More

The fresh juice of all different varieties was cheap and great. Go for that, and sit out back and watch a game. The food was good, but not great, and reasonably priced.

There are 5 branches to this restaurant; this location has seating under a large canopy. There was a constant flow of customers to both food and juice counters. Everything was in Spanish with all the servers speaking only Spanish. There were no price lists. The Cuban food to me was just OK but clearly the food is catered to a... More
