I came here with a few friends for some late night salsa and cumbia dancing and had some great snacks and ice cold brews.

“Awesome Place for Family Dining and Entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

If you are in the mood for dinner and dancing with a family enviroment, this is the place to go to. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for night entertainment. You will wine, dine and dance the night away. The owner of the restaurant is the son of a famous Buena Vista Social Club artist. This is a must see.

“A bit of Cuba in Merida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The food is average at best, the drinks are...well..drinks. But I can and do put up with that in Cuba in order to enjoy the vitality and sensuality of Cuban music and dance. This is a faint reflection of the Casa de la Musica in Miramar but it still has the reality of live music there and the dancers don't have a fraction of the raw sensuality - but they are good and they are obviously loving it!
The band plays inside in the aircon - a plain room. They don't start until 11 pm plus - so it is a late night - but worth it.
