A colleague recommended Cafe Piquet while I'm in town. It was a surprising find in a not so great area. The atmosphere, service and food were excellent! I ordered tostones (fried green plantains with garlic sauce) as an appetizer. I highly recommend it! I also enjoyed the Cuban sandwich with avocado. Everything is made fresh when you order so the...

I have eaten here many times over the years, and am always impressed by the consistency of the food and the friendly service. This is Cuban comfort food, prepared simply but with great flavor. The have all the standards, and my favorite is the boliche,, sort of like Cuban pot roast, served with rice, beans, and plantains. Make sure you... More

I had my first visit yesterday and at 5:45 p.m. the service was very slow and part of my food that should have been hot was cold. Management didn't seem to think it was an issue to the point of winning by business back. There are way more better places in Houston to eat.

Back in September we went to Cafe Piquet for lunch. The food and the waitstaff made a fantastic impression on us, so we decided to go back one Friday evening for dinner. We had been told that sometimes there was Friday night entertainment, but there was none the night of our visit. Don't let that stop you! I tried a... More

This is one of my favorite special occasion restaurants, especially for out-of-town guests. The food is delicious! I enjoy food with a fresh clean taste, simply prepared with outstanding quality. The pollo lite is my favorite. The beef dishes are famous: Picadillo and Ropa Vieja. Previously wait staff has been abrupt and not too friendly, but that seems to have... More

We love Cuban food and have it whenever we can, but really hadn't found it in Houston. We had a coupon and decided to give this a try. We were delighted. Flavors were wonderful and the service was excellent. My wife had the grilled fish and I had the roasted pork. Both orders were very generous in size and well... More
