we grabbed a bit to eat here after checking into our hotel. It was close by. The service was very good the food was fine. Not much for spicy choices, my husband who does like that kind of food found the meal satisfactory.

Josh just made an outstanding coconut mojito to go with plantains and shrimp empanadas. All delicious!

I rate Cuban and Puerto Rican based on my cooking. If I can make it the same or better, then its good in my book. The portions were generous, delicious. I had the lechon asado. The yucca was well cooked. The service was super fast. I recommend it!

DDD should make an appearance. We started with spectacular fresh made Mojhito's . Josh took great care of us. Friendly attentive staff made great suggestions for meals and never rushed us. The seafood civieche salad had a slight hint of spicy and the "small" black bean soup was wonderful. For dinner we dined Arroz con pollo and Lemon Asado (chicken... More

A pleasant restaurant, good service, reasonably good food and fair pricing. The menu selection was adequate with various meat and seafood dishes, but certainly wasn't extensive. The cuisine was authentic Cuban, and served in a nice atmosphere by an attentive staff.

Went with a business colleague from out of town early on a Wednesday night. For appetizers we had Empanadas Cubanas & Tamales. For entrees we both had the Roja Vieja - shredded marinated flank steak. It comes with white or yellow rice and red or black beans. We managed to get 1 of each plus a side of Yuca. Everything... More

The food maybe good here, but we wouldn't know. We got there shortly after 10pm and the kitchen was closed. We had to pay a $25 cover charge, which was outrageous! But since we were there already, we paid it. The music was way to loud. They did bring a small amount of food in about midnight, but we had... More

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk staff at the local hotel where I was staying. I was very impressed. My take-out of arroz con pollo (rice with chicken) was wonderfully full of flavor, and the platanos moduros (sweet fried plantains) were equally pleasing to the palate. Staff was very pleasant and helpful in recommendations and answering my questions.... More
