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

Great Cuban food. We have been back several times after our first visit three months ago. We did not know what things on the menu were, but the staff was very helpful and knowledgable. Wonderful pork choices. A real find

When we first came to Houston 10+ years ago, we were looking for a Cuban place. It took awhile to find this place, but when we did, we met the owner and his wife. Over the years we have been on assignments overseas or moving around, but always come back to Cafe Piquet when we return to Houston. A few... More

A friend recently took me to Cafe Piquet, Houston. I was reluctant initially, as my last Cuban fare had left me cold. However, the food was wonderful! We started with fried plantains with garlic--fantastic! I had a pan con bistec, my husband had the Cubano sandwich. Both were wonderful. We will definitely go back! Service was efficient and friendly. We... More

but by doing this you *must* tell all your friends. We discovered Cafe Piquet in Houston and it has to be described as a well kept secret. We don't want to change that but I'll have to tell you that my introduction to Cuban food went far beyond an eating experience. I'll cut to the chase. If you're a first... More
