Great Experience, Good Service, Amazing Food

I have been in different restaurants around Orlando, but this is one of my favorite ones when it comes to Cuban food. I live in Altamonte Springs and I don't mind driving 40-45 min to Mount Dora for this treat. I have tried papa rellena, masitas y pollo, and everything is delicious. Prices are... read more

Authentic cuisine!! Like the shaded alley location, nighttime dj, and abundant service. Maybe a little over staffed but it was 4th of July and we came just before dinner. Delicious food though!

Food is Quality for the money. Always great service and friendly. Try their Pan con Bistec on their sandwich board. Its a grilled Palomilla steak/onion/mozzarella cheese/lettuce/tomato on Cuban bread. Nice size .They also give you two different sauces to try with your meal. Try their black been side as well. They give you raw onions to put on it. Also... More

We had a group of 4 for dinner and all liked our meals. The server was not rude but he was quite preoccupied. He took a while to get our orders, which was not too bad, but he served our meals holding a phone to his ear with his shoulder. And I called him back a few minutes later because... More

I really enjoyed the lunch I had here. It was a business lunch, we had the privacy we needed. I was happy to see that the proprietor took time to visit his guests and see if everything was good.

We don't get here often. So, when we do, it's a real treat. I love Cuban sandwiches and this place doesn't disappoint me. But, there are so many interesting things on the menu. We took my sister from the north there and she fell in love with the place. I haven't been disappointed yet!

We saw this restaurant leaving dinner from the night before. So today we stopped in for lunch. Yum. I had the pork in mojo sauce, and added some of their salad dressing the waiter recommended. Wow! The hot sauce was great as well. Some of the best black beans and rice I've ever had. Served with my favorite Cuban bread.

This was our thrid trip to the are and we were worried like most things in Mount Dora it would be gone, but they must be doing something right because it's still there. Yummy Cuban food and great staff. We will most certainly be back.

So delicious! The warm buttery bread is amazing. Their beans are fresh, their sauces are flavorful, their spices are delightful! Great food and great service. A must stop in Mount Dora!
