Stopped by on my way to the Shark Valley section of the Everglades National Park. I'm glad I did. I think I was the only non-Cuban in the place, but it couldn't have been more welcoming. The young man who sat next to me gave me a pointer or two on the hot sauce, and the proprietor and staff were... More

This is a small cafeteria/restaurant with very odd decorations. The food was ok. We had the steak sandwich; better then most chain Cuban restaurants but, nothing special. The decorations were very odd. Game boar heads were hung on the wall and a bunch of southern memorabilia hung on the walls. What i found offensive were the confederate flags and decor.... More

Home made cuban food at it's best. just like my mom cooked. Prices are phenomenal, Flan is actually the best I have ever tried, their shakes are made with real fruits. I had ropa vieja and it reminded me of my mom's cooking. Atmosphere is GREAT, you feel like you are somewhere in the everglades. You want to try good... More

Our new favorite restaurant in Miami. You won't get a menu, but Tuto proudly fires off all of his daily specials himself. We went for the skirt steak, chicken, and pork. All were sensational. The black beans and salad were tasty. We ended with the flan and it was amazing! We saw a few of his sandwiches going to other... More

I travel to Miami often and always make it to Tuto's Place at least once. This is most definitely the best place to eat at a reasonable price. One would never expect the excellent food and service from such a quaint place. Anything on the menu is worth trying but don't leave without trying the FLAN. I thought my cuban... More

I agree with another reviewer who said that its the best flan he has ever tasted. Ditto on that, it is the BEST flan in town. Its a combination of creamy, thick custard that melts in your mouth. Not too sweet but sweet enough. Its so good that I have given them to my family and friends as gifts and... More

The FLAN is INSANELY DELICIOUS!!! Best I have ever tried in the world. I have also tried their home made "potajes" and they are UNBELIEVABLE. A small Cuban Cafeteria with good food and great price! If you are even in the Miami area, this would be a great place to eat good home made cuban food and again, THE FLAN... More
