5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

It's Cuban food done right! Fried pork chunks, yuca, Cuban sandwiches, cafe con leche. What's not to love?

“In Hollywood FL and want Cuban food? So far here is the best place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Outstanding. I have not had the pleasure of having dinner at this restaurant but lunch was excellent. In addition to ordering a la carte they had a buffet which looked outstanding at least in appearance. I am not a buffet person so I would more than likely never try this.

I had pork chunks which were tasty combination of both the white and dark meat, loaded with cumin, garlic and citrus. The rice was normal, the black beans closer to home cooked and the tostones and maduros hot and fresh.

Service was quick and attentive. The staff worked together very well together and were there when you wanted them and away (very busy) when you didnt.

On my way out as an afterthought I ordered one large Cuban Sandwich and a pork sandwich to bring home to my family overseas. I sat at the counter with the locals and sipped a cup of Cuban coffee and caught up on the local scene from the Russian Jewish guy on my left and the Cuban emigre my age on the right.

I had one half of the pork sandwich that night on my flight overseas. I passed up on the first class airline meal. I probably had the best tasting meal on the plane.


I felt right at home. I will most definitely return when I am in the area.

The atmosphere is warm, the food is excellent and the portions are very generous. The coffee (regular or expresso) tastes very good.
