They have lots of great Mojitos. The menu is quite large and interesting. The food was great... read more

A friend of ours took us here, and we enjoyed the evening together with great food. The Mariquitas were so good, we all could not stop eating them. That garlic sauce was so addicting. My DH ordered the Paella and he said it was the most amazing one he has had outside of Spain. He said he was not expecting... More

Great find off the main road. We found this place from TA. There were a lot of mixed reviews. What we found is authentic Cuban Cuisine for a great price & excellent quantities. Several options on the menu. Sandwiches, salads & entrees. The pork is tender & flavorful. The plantains were excellent. Would recommend.

A friend recommended and this place lived up to recommendation. The sampler platter gave a nice representation of 3 Cuban appetizers. I enjoyed the empanadas. The Lechon Asado pork was just fantastic and the Seafood Paella was literally 3 meals. This was a fantastic meal an experience.

My husband ordered the red snapper and was pleased even though it was kind of bland to me......my 10 year old ordered grilled mahi-mahi, which he enjoyed but again,... More
