My wife and I eat here maybe 3-4 times a month. The place is always clean and the food is superb! The owner and staff always go out of their way to accommodate us (as well as others I have observed) no matter the time of day. Truly a place you need to try if you live in the area... More

We were here for dinner and it was excellent! The spicy pork was amazing and the yukas were wonderful. It was authentic Cuban food and everyone in our group was well pleased with the food and the service. Even the beer selection includes Cuban beer.

Visited Caribbean Sweetness on a road trip to Atlanta - just looking for some good food. We definitely found that at this restaurant! The owner was wonderful and served us even though it was pretty close to closing time. The food was phenomenal! The spicy pork was excellent and the jerk chicken was delicious too. The black beans and plantains... More

Been hearing rave reviews about this place and finally made it. Reviews spot on! The food was fabulous...jerk chicken, beef barbacoa, pork with mojo. And the sides, mmmm. Best tamale I've ever had. To top it all off, the host is really great. Made us feel at home. Coming back here for sure. Did I mention the prices? Best deal... More

I had a mango smoothie. Then ordered picadillo with ripe plaintains, red beans, and white rice. Mango smoothie was excellent! The sweetness was just right - it tasted natural. The picadillo was excellent too! I loved the sides, especially the ripe plaintains. My husband had a cuban sandwich. He said was great - the sandwich wasn't greasy like other cuban... More
