Soooooo good!

A Cuban sandwich sounded good so we thought this place would do the trick but OH MY GOSH--- it was so much better than expected. It's a cool little space, not too big or fancy but it's all about the authentic food. (Authentic, I think... Haven't been to Cuba :) ...one day) Husband had a Cuban... read more

This place is off the chain, off the hook, fire, and every expression I can think of for totally awesome. My friend and I were visiting for the weekend to see a show at the Fox Theatre and we wanted to check this place out. The atmosphere is very authentic with the Cuban music and tons of Latin/Cuban people. We... More

This place wasn't as good as I expected. To start off, when you enter the place no one greets you. There is no sign instructing you to seat yourself. Once we got ourselves to a table, i saw two waitresses just talking,.. mean while me and my husband have yet been greeted. Nearly 10 minutes later this waitress saw the... More

The service was good. The only thing nwgative was that it was very small and congested. It was manageable though. The food... More

I've been to the best Cuban places in Miami, Boston, New York. But never expected to find a such an excellent food, service, and prices in Atlanta. The services was prompt, we were even told what they didn't have ahead of time. The food was great, highly recommended.

This is a pretty small nondescript restaurant right across the street from Mary Mac's Tea Room, but it is a beauty. I have had lunch here at least 10 times and dinner a couple of times. The food is fantastic and the service is friendly and attentive. I wish that I could give a more comprehensive review of the menu,... More
