My mother and I dined here last week and we were both impressed. The waitress brought out a large complimentary basket of plantain chips with garlic sauce... YUM! We started with soup, she had the white bean, I had the black bean.. both soups were outstanding and highly recommended. We each had a cuban sandwich, should have ordered one and... More

What a gem this place is. Had dinner here with my husband recently. We enjoyed the complimentary plantain chips with garlic mojo sauce. For dinner I had the skirt steak with black beans, rice, and sweet plantain and my husband had the seafood paella with sweet plantain. Both were fantastic! We also enjoyed a great bottle of Malbec. For desert... More

I tried to dine at the restaurant for New Year's but they were closed so I had to settle for the following night which was a Friday. We arrived at about 6:45. We didn't have reservations so we waited about 25 minutes. The hostess was extremely pleasant. We were seated near the guitarist who was playing that evening. The music... More

Loved this place. It's upscale Cuban. The plantain chips and their delicious dipping sauce arrive at the beginning if the meal and the flavors continue throughout. So glad we found this place.

I am Cuban born and raised on home made Cuban food every day of my life while at home. That means that not only do I know what Cuban food should taste like but I am an accomplished (non-professional) cook as well. I was pleasantly surprised on my first visit, if I didn't know better I'd say my mom was... More
