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

As someone who grew up in a Cuban household in Miami I can say with confidence that you can get some great ropa vieja, maduros, yuca frita and flan from here. Also, ask for Yuly to be your server. She's very sweet, very good and she makes an incredible mojito. Her service made the experience a 5.

This is not a high end cafe but a comfort food and authentic flavor experience. The food is made when you order and can cause wait times so don't be in a hurry. But the flavors are great and not overpowering. The value is outstanding for a nice lunch break. Overall a great family style cafe with very friendly staff.

I went here on the suggestion of some friends, and it was very good. The menu was incredible, so it was really difficult to pick something! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. So, with that glowing review, why didn't it get five stars? There were a couple of draw backs, in my opinion. First, it is in a less-than-attractive... More

This is a quaint little place with some of the tastiest fish I've had in DFW. Perhaps I'm a little biased since this place introduced me to Carribean cuisine but no other place I've gone to since has matched up. The staff is also extremely polite and always seems genuinely happy to serve.
