I had the shrimp with garlic and sides of tostones ans platinos. The shrimp were over cooked and tasted rubbery. The tostones were perfect greaseless and crunchy the platinos were good too. My son had a Miami sandwich which he stated was just ok. He ordered potao sticks and liked them

Food was very tasty overall. Although I am a notoriously picky eater, I did enjoy it. I had the fajitas, to which I asked for tomatoes. Sides were corn and more (rice and black beans). Cuban bread was served at no cost to our table.

We had lunch in the Tropico Restaurant at the beginning of our week long vacation in Sunny Isles. The food was great along with the atmosphere in the restaurant. The servers were very pleasant and willing to prepare anything we wanted even if not on the menu.

This was my first trip or Miami, so the hotel recommend EL Tropico for a Cuban meal as the best in the area, and it was within walking distance. We were a little taken back by the restaurant in the strip plaza look, but were pleasantly surprised by the great meal we all enjoyed. Other than the plain atmosphere, the... More

This was my first visit to El Tropico, and I ordered the Tropico sandwich, which is a Cuban plus sausage. It was perfect - best Cuban sandwich I've had. I tried my friend's food as well and the beans&rice were just right.
