I have been to Cuba and eaten there; I eat out a lot and try to be generous in my reviews because I understand that it is hard to please everyone. With that said, I was disappointed in the overall service and quality of our brunch. It took forever to get our food, and when it arrived it was too... More

We tried Cruzado for brunch, having just moved in the neighborhood. It's a bit off the beaten path - but what a find it was! I thought that brunch was a bit pricey for brunch, but when looking at the lunch and dinner menus, it seems very reasonable. I had the tripleta omelette and would highly recommend it.

Took some family members who were not acquainted with Cuban food here and everyone liked it. The Cuban sandwich was a big hit and more than enough to fill the stomach on a busy day in Atlanta. Small restaurant tucked into the neighborhood.

I grew up eating Cuban food on 8th St. in Miami. Casablanca, Versailles, Lolas. Las Palmeras has the same quality food. Very good. Try the rotisserie chicken on a weekend! I just wish they had pastelitos de guayaba.

The Yuca Irvida tasted like it had been cooked in the same pan for which they fried fish. I would rate this restaurant a C+ or a B-. Food was good but not that good and the menu choices were limiited.

Las Palmeras is located in an old home tucked away in the Midtown/Piedmont Park neighborhood. They service authentic cuban cuisine, sangria and it's very laid back. Nothing fancy but a nice meal.

This is really great Cuban food and very authentic. You feel transported to Cuba the moment you walk in the door and the food continues the journey. The only strange thing is the hours/days of operation are not the best at all. Also, the food is very pricey.

Our party of three adults had dinner here recently on a Friday evening while visiting the city on the advice of someone here on TA and were quite pleased. The restaurant is located in the middle of a neighborhood and a little off the beaten path. You'd probably never just stumble across this place without knowing it was there. They... More

Thoroughly recommend this little cafe for a laid-back, low-key authentic Cuban experience. Everything's good and most dishes are excellent. You have to try the Flan de Leche, and the Tostones! Best Value around.

Cute place! Looks like a house, so it's easy to miss. Authentic Cuban flavors. Very tasty, but we all left a little hungry. Portions are smaller and prices are higher than most Cuban restaurant I've been (even in my hometown, Miami).
