Great upscale Cuban

The place is decorated really nicely and the staff is friendly. It maintains rustic food in an elegant setting. They have an extensive kids menu. Everything is reasonably priced. Can't say enough good stuff.

My personal review differs from others in my group but here it mine. For starters we had the mix of all their appetizers and they were divine! Croquetas, tostones, empanadillas, etc. I ordered the ribs, white rice, black beans and fried ripe plantains..Super-duper delicious! The ribs were so tender, good seasoning, excelente! For dessert I had the "Tres Leches"...mine is... More

I was in Orlando for a conference and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. The restaurant has a great ambience. My waiter, Jonathan, was very personable and took time to explain the menu and drink specials. The lechon asado was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Jonathan recommended the black beans and rice be served separately - great suggestion! I took Jonathan's... More

We had the pleasure of finding this restaurant which was recommended by a dear friend of ours. We instantly were greeted at the door and sat down promptly. We had the honor of having Taira (Tyra) as our server. She helped us choose our entrees with her great recommendations. We ended choosing the Vaca Frita and the Lechon Asado. Delicious!!... More

My American husband loves Cuban food, so it was nice to find an upscale, clean restaurant serving good Cuban dishes. The plantain chips with a dipping garlic based sauce were a treat. I had a roast pork dinner with yellow rice and yucca done to perfection. And great sweet plantains! My husbands' Cuban sandwich was a winner! He had a... More

Excellent Cuban food and where Cubans go to eat. Service is above par with multiple staff assisting tables so you are never without water or having a need attended to. The food is outstanding. The yuca, tostones, ceviche are top notch choices. Any of the rice dishes are also excellent. Will definitely be back!
