Great Atmosphere

At the entrance to quaint Espanola Way, this is a fun place to eat. They do have several locations, so its not unique. Just sit in the closed off street and sidewalks and have a Cube Libre. The cuban food is not quite as authentic as some other places around Miami, and Coral Cables, but its a... read more

This is the neatest place for Cuban food. My skirt steak was flavorful and my friend's chicken was fall off the bone. We sat at the bar and had the best service. The bartender we had was friendly and suggested some great drinks that I have never tried before.

FOOD IS DELISH!!!! BUT the wait was terrible. WE made a reservation but we still waited like an hour and a little bit to be seated. We were HANGRY and needed to eat ASAP. we kept asking the hostesses how long the wait would be and they kept telling us that they were just waiting for the diners at our... More

The food was average, the menu was a bit overwhelming but the worse part was our waiter. He was rude and very standoffish. I ordered sweet plantains and croquettes and asked if the rice was white or yellow and just because I asked about the rice he brought out rice instead of my plantains. When I said I didn't order...

My wife and I went here on a recommendation from the hotel concierge. It is located right in the heart of the Cuban quarter which has a great vibe and electric atmosphere! The restaurant inside is not huge, but does have lots of outdoors seating under cover too so you don't burn in that sun! Walking in we had to... More

The food and service was great. I went to the Lincoln Road location which was busy and lively. There's also a vibrant location on Espanola Way. I highly recommend it!

We really enjoyed this restaurant - the food, the atmosphere and Espanola Way in general. The Cuban sandwich was outstanding - everything very fresh and exactly what I was hoping for. Our waitress, Yanitza, was lovely and handled our order promptly. We were very sorry that we learned about this area as our trip to South Beach was ending -... More

Wanted to take my girlfriends to try Cuban cuisine and didn't want to take a cab all the way to the famous Versailles restaurant. This was not bad! The ambiance as well as the staff exuded Cuban flare. A bit tourist, but we were there as tourists so.. A few of us enjoyed the chicken special. Portions are generous. Small... More
