Very friendly and the food was great. Great atmosphere. Lack of knowledge regarding gluten-free alternatives though.

We were really looking forward to our meal here, but sadly were disappointed. To start we ordered a pitcher of mojitos and had the worst mojitos of our entire vacation. It was like lime seltzer with barely a splash of rum. We didn't even finish it. The food was fine, but nothing special in our opinion. The waiter was more... More

Brought friends visiting town last Sunday and had an absolutely wonderful lunch. Fantastic (though pricy) mojitos and daqueris, and some of the best Lechon we've ever had, and we order it whenever possible. We sat outside at a pleasant table and got great service. We were expecting Tourist Food, but this was the real thing. Will be back!!

I would describe the meal as comfort food. We ordered the sampler, but they got our order wrong and gave us the house special. They were apologetic and gave us some free chicken soup, which was surprisingly good (I think they put lime in it). The house special was simple but very good (chicken with black beans, rice, and fried... More

I wish I could cook like this place. Food and service was great. I had a Cuban style beer. Somewhat hoppy but good. I would go back. Nice atmosphere.

Went here on Valentines Day. No reservation and were seated right away. Some warned us that the prices were high. I thought it was reasonable given the perfect location on Espagnola Way. My husband and I both ordered the baked chicken dinner special. We both loved it! Small salad, black bean soup ( the best we had ever had ),... More

Spicy food. Excellent chicken breast and shrimp in red sauce. Tasteful red sauce. Great location. Black beans are out of this world.

Fun with great outside tables. Yes, perhaps a little pricier than necessary but this is true of so many of the restaurants in SoBe. The pork selections were yummy. Worth at least one meal.
