Last Sunday I took my friend and she ordered: Tacos al Carbon, the dish was a disaster, big chunks of tomatoes, a huge scoop of sour cream does not save the dish, which comes with rice???, not at all, there was everything but tacos, really bad, manager did not notice that when she was in front of the dish.

I will never return to this place, even if they paid me back for the awful experience I had, the owner is a complete a-hole. I went for lunch and had a flyer for lunch specials, which included a buy one get one deal on Cuban meals. I asked the server, he explained to me that it would be $10... More

We were taken here by our friends who live just North of Fort Lauderdale and we had a great time. It was our first experience of Cuban food and it was brilliant. We had the salsa starter followed by the pork with Margaritas to drink. Service was excellent, food of great quality and price reasonable. the decorated coffee to complete... More

Read a lot of the reviews and was looking forward to the food. The food is inconsistent. Some Empanadas were good (Beef), some not (Chicken) but were a good price at 1.99 each. Had Picadillo and it was good. Plantains were good as well. Mexican salsa with chips was good. Ask for hot salsa if you want hotter than the... More

In Lauderdale looking for good Cuban food, try this one. A family run restaurant with husband and wife working and running restaurant. Ambiance what one might find in the islands--nothing fussy. Honest food with good service. Tried the deep fried pork with beans and plantains--excellent flavors.

This is one of the best options of lunch and/or dinner that you could go to in Broward county. Fort Lauderdale has many Latin restaurants, this one is the best for Cuban food. Period. Whether you are in a tight budget or would like to buy a weekly "cantina" (food ready to pick up after you finish at the office,... More

Had read the reviews so we decided to try it while in Oakland Park. Fajitas came without beans or rice, very little lettuce and tomatoes. Beans were extra!?! Margarita was not good. My friend had the nachos. Sad sad nachos. Can't recommend.

While attending a recent travel convention, we found this Cuban restaurant. It was very good; my friend had a steak, and I had the taco salad. The chips and salsa were yummy! Too bad they're in FL and I'm in CO.

The service was excellent & the food was very good. My husband loved his Cuban sandwich & Cuban coffee. The fried yucca was the best I ever tasted. My pork sandwich was also good.
