“This hole in the wall was a great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

We wanted to try some authentic Cuban food. This first thing that popped up was Laura's. We were treated like kings and queens and Laura herself served us. The food was great and prices were reasonable. We connected with Laura and found the history behind Laura's. A great place to eat but an even better story to hear. Thanks Laura!!!!

“Never Again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

When the owner of the restaurant doesn't care to get of the phone, how can you expect food to be any good. There are 3 other places to eat in the same building, do yourself a favor ignore the Groupon and go for one of the other 3 establishments!

“Great Service - Not So Great Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

I was so excited to be in FL and to get a really good Cuban sandwich! Laura (the owner) was wonderful and a great hostess.

The menu has a large variety of Cuban food. We ordered several appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. Unfortunately, the food was highly processed. On top of that, the food didn't taste fresh. Some of the food seemed like it was frozen and reheated. Terrible quality for what you pay.

There is a plethora of beverages to choose from - you might want to check the expiration dates on the beers and sodas.

“Like eating in Laura's home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

We arrived a bit on the early side since we were in the mainland part of town. The restaurant was empty, and Laura came out and introduced herself. She is very proud of her place, and explained her favorites on the menu. Wife had the Lechon Asado with Moro rice and plantains. I had the ropa Vieja with the same sides. The Lechon Asado came in a large slice, very juicy and tender and with that great Cuban flavor. The ropa Vieja was also very tender in a great sauce. But the sides were also stars of the show. Laura amps up the Moro rice with Spanish chorizo, and he plantains were perfectly ripe and sweet. We had the tres leches cake for desert, made by one of Laura's friends. The cake still had its texture, unlike some poorly made that are soggy. Very good.

We were a little concerned about the reviews here about the food being greasy, but that was not our experience. We'd go back here in a heartbeat

“Really enjoyed the meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

I came here with a group of 10 people. Laura and her daughter could not have been nicer. We opted for a family style mix of entrees and sides. There are 250 beers to select from. I split a carafe of very nice sangria. I will definitely visit here next time I'm in Ft Lauderdale.
