Found this recommendation on the tripadvisor app during our recent trip to NYC. So glad we did. Fantastic cuban/latin food. Charming setting with brick walls and a real rose on the table. $12 for a mojito but they were delicious and i splurged and had two. Only negative was that it was really loud, even though only half the tables... More

Being from Miami, I expected the food here to be bad. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, probably some of the best cuban food I have ever had. The service could have been a little better, but was not bad. Overall we were very satisfied.

My fiancé and I go every once in a while for dinner or happy hour. The mojitos are excellent. We usually get good service and the food is pretty tasty.

We dined here with another couple and had a great time. The staff was attentive and the food was good. 3 of us had the "specials" (all with pork) and one person had the salmon. Everyone was pleased with the food and the wine. No complaints.

On a tip from our Sofitel footman we gave the place a try. The fully lit casual was comfortable, and we enjoyed the prompt, professional and gracious service. I ordered the pork loin with mushroom/brandy sauce, a bit apprehensive that the meat would arrive dry and chewy, as that cut often is, but was rewarded with a generous portion of... More

Pretty straightforward Cuban style restaurant and food served by friendly staff in pleasant surroundings . Does that sound dull ? Well it's meant to because there is nothing here that will excite you or leave you wanting more ! That's it !

With a minimalist interiors, the service for the lunch we had was efficient and with a smile. The Mojitos they gave us were well made and refreshing. The starter samplers were delicious and filling, their bean soup was so sumptuous we had not space left to try the mains. Good value for money and great tasting food. Two thumbs up.
