This place is amazing. I love eating here anytime I'm on the West side of Columbus. They have a number of favorites on the menu but I typically opt for one of the specials. They are easy to find on the board when you come in. There is a goofy eclectic feel to the place with all of the fun... More

We know Starliner as a terrific place to eat breakfast - with great food and wonderful friendly service. Yesterday, we went there for dinner, and were equally impressed. My husband had a very good Cuban sandwich with plantains, and I had the Cuban pizza (amazing !) with a fresh greens salad with a delicious lime juice and olive oil dressing.... More

The food was so tasty, with just the right amount of spice. Not a stunning place, but terrific--especially when you are with a group of nice people--in this case, the Congregation Beth Tikvah Sisterhood folks.

Maybe this place serves up better breakfasts than dinners. it got a good reputation from something, but it can't be authenticity. A big disappointment down to the cuban bread.

Have not been here for years, but the place has great Cuban food. Building is old but that is what makes this place great. You don't know what you are missing if you don't try this little jewel. Service is just as good as the food. I will be back again. I would say that it is a place you... More

The food is really good- don't let the small and narrow parking lot or small building stop you from eating here. I feel confident the dish you order will be worth it. The portion sizes are large!

Went around 11am on a Friday, no wait. Got a ham and 2 cheese omelette. Omelette was very good, potatoes were good, wheat toast was a little burnt but edible. Waitress was good and polite. It's a cool little dive. I'd definitely go back if I visited columbus again

Cuban toast. It really is different. Nicely prepared tasty omelettes that rate 4 on a 5 scale. Service is consistently good with real local flavor. Be prepared to wait on a popular weekend. Interior decor, if that's what it can be called, consists of a garage sale clock collection with few if any working timepieces. A mural that may have... More

I've seen reviews about this place and have wanted to try it for sometime now. I'm glad I did! We went on Sunday morning so naturally it was busy (about 1/2 hour wait). Once seated wait staff was very attentive. Food excellent and fresh. Traditional and Cuban offerings. I had a steak burrito, one of the best I've had in... More
