Quaint and well located

Cozy Cuban restaurant, well decorated with 50's artifacts on Miami Beach's most picturesque tourist street. Stroll and enjoy the atmosphere, Well priced variety of choices, a fair deal not ripping off visitors as they do on Lincoln Rd. Just don't expect outstanding. Good OK.

The atmosphere makes this restaurant. The food was mediocre and quick to come out of the kitchen. If you've never had Cuban food this would be a good place to eat, but if you have had excellent Cuban food before the food here will disappoint you. There are several restaurants on Española Way which all offer the ambiance and outdoor... More

A good restaraunt on charming Espanola way. The atmosphere was festive and the sangria was the best I've had. The combination appetizer platter was delicious. The only downside was the special of the day,a lobster and shrimp combination in a tomato based sauce was way too salty. I would try this again and have another dish.

The food here was great, and unlike most other spots in South Beach, the service matched. Everything was reasonably priced, especially for the portions. The only thing somewhat negative thing I can say is that the cocktails didn't taste like there was much alcohol in them.

We had a great lunch at this restaurant, an easy walk from the hotel and, definitely a little touristy, but what would you expect on Espanola Way. House chicken special was really great, enough to share. Nice to people watch while sitting at the sidewalk tables, especially on a warm day.

We had a great meal at this restaurant, an easy walk from the hotel and, as others noted, definitely not feeling like most of the touristy places on Espanola Way. House chicken speciality was really great, as was the sangria. Very busy and somewhat noisy indoors, but great to sit at the sidewalk tables, especially on a warm evening. Highly... More

Food was good. I had the Chicken house special that was massive (half a chicken). It was moist and flavorful. My wife had one of the Beef dishes and enjoyed it, nicely flavored. They have a good selection of different rums which is fun to try. Style of the place is harking back to old Havana and is fun to... More

Have to admit Española way offers nice atmosphere but almost all the restaurants are tourist traps: good to have fun with friends but not good food and high prices. This one has a authentic cuban atmosphere, in fact they are cubans, great cuban food and good prices for the quality and for the area. Just book a table before, all... More

Our hostess made quick accommodations for our party of eight outside at a nice table. Our server Juan was wonderful, so pleasant and efficient. Our food came and we enjoyed the chicken special and the Cuban sandwiches very much. A very nice place to experience authentic Cuban food.
