“A wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

After travelling all day from Edmonton, Alberta we finally got to our hotel at about 9.30 pm after a mix up with hotels and 2 expensive cab rides. We were quite hungry by now and asked the guy at the front desk of the hotel if he could recommend a good restaurant for us. He recommended "Las Vegas" a Cuban restaurant across the road from the hotel. My husband is not the adventurous type when it comes to food and he was sceptical. Anyway it was the only restaurant in the area so we thought we'd give it a try. When we got there we were welcomed by Hector, who was friendly, helpful and helped us select a meal as we are not very familiar with Cuban food. I like seafood and he hepled me select a wonderful fillet of fish with a light parsley sauce and rice. On the side were fried bananas and black beans. For my husband he selected a chicken dish baked with ham and cheese in a marinara sauce, also with rice, fried bananas and black beans. While we were waiting for our food, we had some drinks and the food came relatively quickly. And it was "out of this world". We would recommend this restaurant to anybody staying in or passing through Fort Lauderdale. The atmosphere is wonderful, the people are friendly and helpful and the food is great! And not to mention the value for money. I will make a point of visiting this spot again whenever I get the chance.

“Authentic Cuban Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The food and service are excellent. We went twice during a 4 day trip as it was so delicious the first time around. The black beans and rice are the best we have ever eaten in the USA. The service is phenomenal as well. We had shredded beef, roast pork, fish and shrimp and everything was wonderful. The servings are huge and they have a wide variety of imported beer. Highly recommend it. It is a great value for the money.

“Good cuban food but not real good by any means!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Descent food but definitely not fantastic Cuban food. This small chain of Cuban Restaurants might have other locations that are better but this is not one of them. Now I agree with other posters reviews.

“Good Cuban Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Had dinner with a large group and the waiter handled it quite well. The food was very good and prices were even better considering where they are located. Order the sangria, you'll get a full glass. Well worth a trip and a return engagement.

“Food Good, Service/Bathrooms - not really”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

We loved Las Vegas 8 so much that we went to another Las Vegas and ordered to go. Host seemed distracted while we attempted to order. Our food was ready quickly but once we got back to the hotel, we realized that a portion of our food was missing (beans for both of our entrees).
Bathrooms were FILTHY! No toilet paper in 2 out of 3, urine on floors, trash can overflowing. We would avoid this location the next time.
