Cuban food with an amazing price. We took family from South Africa here for lunch. I had the Shrimp Creole, my wife had the Ropa Viejas and the others all had the Fajitas. Everything was so fantastic. The Fajitas were not the standard fajitas that you can get at any restaurant. They had an amazing Cuban twist that was very... More

I skipped lunch and was famished for an early (5:00) dinner and was thus the first diner that night. The staff was, of course, attentive and helped me decide what item to order. As I was alone, he brought me a small plate of marquitas to sample and they were crispy and delicious. The Lechon Asado (roast pork and onions)... More

Have been going to this restaurant since I was a kid. We love the specials - great prices, authentic cooking. The salsa is fresh and bright flavors, the plaintains are always perfectly carmelized, and the black beans and rice.......well, all of my out of town friends demand we go back as soon as they get here! The roasted chicken, Ropa... More

We ordered some appetizers to have before our main dish. We wished we hadn't done that. First because the size were too big for starters. Second, and most importantly, because they were plain bad, the yuca frita was hard and tasteless. After that disappointing start we received our main dishes with low expectations. In all fairness the main dishes were... More

Made a return visit to this restaurant while we were in Wilton Manors. Ordered the Cuban sandwiches with fries. It is a large sandwich which can be shared by another. The ambiance in the restaurant wasn't particularly great as this time there was a roof leak right by our table. They put a large bucket to catch the leak, but... More
