My fiance is from Cuba and so he liked the food, but was disappointed in not "real authentic" food. They had items by name and style, but he felt it was very Americanized. We did like our food. Flavors were great. Staff was so so. When we came in a girl was on the phone at the hostess desk and kind of just ignored us. Waiters took a long time to come around, but I'd go back. Prices were very good. We ate lunch, spent $75 which was 2 cocktails, an appetizer, 2 meals, and a dessert.
Had Dulce Leche Cocktail (okay) , Mojito (okay- they make theirs less sweet than many places), Croquetas (so good), Arroz Con Pollo (decent), Bistec de Palomilla (very tender meat), and Flan (good).
