I am not sure if they moved to a new location. I haven't found them if they did. Pecks Place is coming to this location. It's a pub featuring prime rib. Can't wait to try.

This restaurant is one of our favorites and offers delicious fish dinners as well as many other authentic Cuban fare. I have always been served wonderful food. It lacks somewhat in atmosphere, but the top quality food makes up for it.

Muy Delisioso! Forget the location, this Cuban place is so much good! We had the Beautiful Havana Chicken and the Cuban Fish Casserole and by far the best Cuban we've had in many years! In addition to the food, the service was excellent as well!

I have eaten here three times. The food is authentic, the service is friendly and prompt. The dishes with garlic have fresh garlic, the way it should be. Real Cuban all the way. Try the appetizer, especially the combo that has fried Yuca, Croquettas and empanadas.. Don't let the location fool you. It is a gem of a Restaurant. Yummy... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Vero Beach. Authentic Cuban food. Nice quiet spot, not what you would expect in the plaza with the gas station. The food has been good every time I have been. The service is prompt and the experience is enjoyable. Love the Bodeguita fish, moro rice and fried plantains. Have the... More

Ate here Dec 27 with our Cuban-food-wise Miami friends. Like others, we found the location off-putting, but it was fun in the long run. The appetizer sampler was quite nice and a good value. Wife had Filetilles de Pollo and really enjoyed it. I had the Churrazco and it was flavorful, but not as tender as I'd like. Flan Con... More

Thank God there's a little piece of Cuba in Vero! Now I don't have to go to Miami to have authentic Cuban cuisine. The black beans are awesome the vaca frita is to die for. Also, if you haven't tried the Frita (Cuban Burger), what are you waiting for?
