Yummy

So good true Cuban food! Be prepared only outside seating, and a little slow when busy, but so worth the wait. A must try if you are in the area!

Had the cuban sandwich and black beans and plantains. All were flavored very nicely, and the server was making smoothies and let us try a little of one, they were delicious, but we were too full to have one after our lunch...

We were directed here by some locals and what an excellent choice! Authentic Cuban food with plenty of healthy choices and vegetarian options. I had the vegetarian sandwich--- excellent Cuban bread, tofu and vegetables that was very flavorful. Inexpensive and worth a visit!!!

I had 6 of these in 4 days excellent. Just ask for no Mayo and light mustard. The aliño on The pork is perfect not overdone. Great Cuban bread perfectly seared on a flat press. Just like you get in Miami or Elizabeth New Jersey. Cuban enclaves. The genuine article!!

We tried Bodega for lunch. You order at the window then can eat at either tables on the street or on a patio tucked in back. It was my first Cuban sandwich and the pork and ham were flavorful. The sandwiches were large enough to share. This is a great local place.

The place is not terrible. It's a little pricey and they are best known for their cuban sandwiches. If you need to eat in a pinch not bad but no inside seating so avoid on the summer.

Dining El Fresco at this quant Cubin eatery was a highlight of our trip to Florida. The food was fresh and the service was friendly. People watching from the outdoor dining area was enjoyable. We also enjoyed dining in the back yard area. I want more of the jicama slaw now!!! So delicious. I especially enjoyed the tofu dish. If... More

We eat here often, when visiting the St Pete downtown area. Though small in size and limited in menu, the staff is friendly and efficient, and the food and beer is good. Sitting outside allows diners to keep abreast of the passers-by, all while enjoying the weather. Great place to eat before and after the events at Tropicana Field. Be... More
