This is one of my go-to restaurants because it's one of the best in the area. Both lunch and dinner are excellent. I've had the ropa vieja (?) sandwich and dinner, the fish tacos, the cuban sandwich.

This was an amazing dining experience. The café is small and cozy. The food is AMAZING. We had the cracked olives, empanadas, stuffed plantains, pernil y arroz, and mahi tacos. All were FANTASTIC! The service was great, as were the mojitos.

Wonderful appetizers and main courses. Excellent mojitos. We got there around 7 pm - place is small, and takes no reservations. By 8 pm on a Tuesday night, the place was packed. Nice local spot.

I have never been disappointed here, but tonight took it to a new level...the chorizo sliders and maduros were incredible. Tito does a wonderful job preparing Latin food in a comfortable, family atmosphere...Thanks to Phil and Sarah for a wonderful dinner.

It's a great little spot. Service was kind of slow and forgettable when I went, even though the place is very small. The food is excellent and definitely worth checking out.

I ordered roasted pork that was pretty tasty...priced well too at $10. Friends had cubano sandwich and empanada which they said were good too. Im from FL so I guess I expected more selection on the menu??? But the food was good so I guess thats fine but i thought our server was rude. My friend was obviously still working... More

The food was authentic. We ordered conch fritters, fried plantains, black beans and rice, and chimichurri flank steak. Mojitos...let us just say we ordered more than one! P The restaurant is connected to a Subway and has very few seating options. So on a busy night it may be a long wait but the restaurant looks like it is straight... More

Been there a dozen times and everything we tried was just great, top picks Cubano sandwich and Chimichurri steak and can also enjoy a decent glass of wine which definitely pairs better than their mojitos. Place is very tiny and we try to stay away when it's packed with tourist during the season. Outstanding food and fair price!
