Authentic Cuban food!

This place has truly authentic Cuban food and some of the servers are even Cuban and can give you great recommendations. The ropa vieja and picadillo are personal favorites!

As a Cuban my standards are pretty high as far as Cuban restaurants go, so having said this this restaurant was pretty decent as far as Cuban food is concerned. It wasn't my mother and aunts cooking and not as good as some of the restaurants in Miami, but considering I'm living in Houston, Texas it was pretty good. If... More

We stumbled on Cafe Piquet and it seems to be a very authentic Cuban restaurant. My wife thought the Ropa Vieja was the best she'd ever had. If you get Rogerous (sp?) as your waiter you will have the cheeriest waiter anywhere! The flan for dessert is a must.

Service and quality of food was delicious and I would go again. I don't know why I have to add more characters to submit this rating.

We were looking for someplace different for dinner on a Saturday evening and my husband found Café Piquet. This place is perfect! The atmosphere is nice and the food and service were excellent! We shared the small Cuban appetizer sampler and the Carnaval Cubano Entrée sampler. Both were very good and we were able to try several different items. We... More

My wife is Cuban, so we understand Cuban food well. Le Piquet is first class, genuine 'home-style' Cuban cooking. My wife had the masitas, and I the Ropa Vieja, following an excellent appetizer plate. There are some decent wines at a good price, and the value for money is good. Portions are perhaps a bit big, and very heavy on... More

We have been living within two miles of this restaurant for over ten years now, but only found it when we started looking for a decent Cuban restaurant in Houston. We decided to go there to celebrate a wedding anniversary with some friends. We arrived at 6.30pm to have a choice of tables. They were very accommodating. The service was... More

Used to love this place but last Sunday will be my last visit, ordered La Rumba. The shreeded beef and the picadillo were overly salty, the tostones tasted like they had set out for hours. Absolutely horrible service. Waitress actually told me they were out of tea when I requested a refill. I will be searching for a new Cuban... More
