Cuban waiter, owner and entertainer all in the same guy. Very informative about the dishes. We let him pick the 3 sides. Chicken soup, beens and rice and plantains all excellent. Even had cuban beer. Ordered a cuban sandwich on the way out to have next day. Prices very reasonable. Will go back when back in the area.

I will join the chorus of voices praising this place. I can't really comment on authenticity because I'm no Cuban food aficionado, but I love eating here. The owner, a native of Cuba, often fills the role of server and is quite friendly. He makes some of the best soup available in Spartanburg. His Cuban sandwich is the best Cuban... More

One of the best restaurants in Spartanburg--a little gem. Wonderful Cuban food - tried many new things, and have liked all of them. We have gone as a family, and we all enjoy the food, atmosphere (the restaurant is in part of a grand old house) and the owner is personable, and if he has time, he will take time... More

I love Cuban food and Caribbean Sweetness is one of my favorite places in the Upstate to get my fix! The food is always good; my fiancé and I have enjoyed the spicy pork, pork mojo, island shrimp, ropa vieja, corn, plantains, rice, beans and tamales, just to name a few! The owner and his wife are true gems and... More

A must have is the Cuban Sandwich with a side of black beans and rice. You won't be disappointed. I have visited this restaurant several times and enjoyed a variety of foods. Everything I've had has been excellent.

I love Cuban food. This place did not dissapoint. The layers of flavor in the spicy pork was mind blowing. Best black beans and rice I've had in a long time. The owner was great too. He helped make this stop the complete experience.

This is a hard to locate place that you should make the effort to find! The food is excellent, and authentic. The dining area is small and it may take a few minutes to get your food, If you enjoy Cuban food, go get some, you will love it. Highly recommend.

We love the patio. The food is amazing. My boyfriend always gets whatever the chef recommends and I get the pulled pork. We are always thrilled. Looking forward to lunch tomorrow.

We had six people with us--half got Cuban sandwiches and the other half got a meat and two sides. The sandwiches were awesome according to those who had them. The rice and beans were wonderful and the meats were authentically prepared. The ripe plaintains had bit of char on them, which some of us liked and some did not. Dessert... More
