This place is amazing! We were seated quickly both times and while there's not a ton of room the atmosphere is great! Cuban music and Cuban service. The hostess is so pleasant and just a beauty! She remembered us from the first night we were there. The waiter the second night was from Havana and used Spanish and English interchangeably... More

Had a nice, quick dinner in Miami. Sat outside, short wait on a Friday. Good mohito, but relatively small for price.chicken special was excellent. Great location, food came out fast, almost rushed.

I love esponola way and this place is perfect. Everyone's food was delicious from the Ropa Vieja,to the tostados, and Fish. Only thing i was not impressed with was the mojitos picther were not worth the price as they fill most of it with ice, but were delicious so i would suggest asking for little ice to get the most...

...finally tried a good Cuban cuisine option. Will definitely return. Loved this place. Food was good, service excellent. We had the chicken special. Would also highlight the yummy mojitos and the cozy bar where we enjoyed cocktails while waiting for our street-side table. Go for a table on the espanola way side of the restaurant as it is the side... More

Nice Cuban food, served really fast. Our kids were exceptionally tired, but treated very caringly. We sat outside, towards Washington Av. , nice atmosphere, lots of things to see.

Very good Cuban style food that was reasonably priced. Drink prices were quite high. All staff were quick to assist us and we did not wait very long for service. If you do not like people walking through while you eat, ask for a table along Espanola way.

We just happened to pop into this place as we were shopping. Good drinks, good food and good atmosphere. Would definitely come back when i return to Miami Beach. The only downside was the service was a bit slow, however we were on vacation so the pace was OK for us.

This place was recommended by our Hotel , Hotel Impala, as it was on the way to the Lincoln Road Mall. We (my wife and I and our two teenage kids) sat outside and had a very nice meal including a chicken special and Sangia that were excellent

This place is a bit of a tourist trap, but also has plenty authentic vibes/food. It was recommended to us by a Cuban delivery guy we stopped at random on the street. He told us he stops there for lunch as often as possible. The atmosphere is fun and lively. Interior a bit crowded but not impossibly so. The service... More
