One of the few authentic Cuban restaurants in the US

Every city that my family and I visit, we make sure to try local Cuban food restaurants and after evaluating over a dozen (including some in Miami, Florida) I can declare that this (along with “El Meson” in Houston, Texas) is the finest I have appraised.

I drove by the restaurant tucked away in a shopping plaza. I will say the lunch portions were larger than expected but overall the prices were high for sandwiches. But the feel and the interior design of the seating area and bar room was good. Played good music as well. Nice and friendly staff. Would go back again!

My partner and I visited for lunch today. I was very excited about finding a Cuban restaurant somewhat near us. When we arrived we saw the restaurant in a small shopping center next to restaurants that looked "eh." As we walked inside, we immediately were like "oh wow.." It was really, really nice. It was simple, but elegant. The staff... More

We came here for dinner one Saturday night with our kids. The food was delicious and reminiscent of a favorite restaurant in RTP, NC. We were pleased with the options on the menu. However, there are a few draw backs: 1. Our waitress didn't bring all of our food out and seemed taken back when we asked for the remainder... More

I really enjoyed the Carribean Cafe. The Cuban bread is outstanding. The Cuban sandwich and Ropa Vieja were both great. The Cuban coffee to follow was bracing in just the right way. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The location is not in the best area to begin with and the strip the restaurant is pretty ratty. This place should... More

I was raised in Miami, so I know what Cuban food should taste like, let me tell you this is the best Cuban food your going to taste outside of Miami. You won't go wrong with the choices here. First always ask for the cuban bread they serve, its really great. I always get the beef breaded steak, its delicious... More

Reminds me of home. Great food and service. The ceviche de tilapia was excellent, as well as the arroz con pollo

Being myself from one of the island I went there seeking Tropical fare. I was not disappointed. When I walked into the restaurant there was some great Salsa and Bachata music playing, beer was cold, and the Ropa Vieja with rice, beans, and plantains was delicious. A great out of the place located in a small strip mall in Carrolton.... More

My boyfriend was in the mood for Cuban food & he had been here while visiting Dallas before so we decided to give it a try again. It was close to closing time but there were still several people in there and a few at the bar. The place is small..nothing fancy but those are the places that you usually... More
