“Tasty Cuban delights.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner with friends here at their suggestion. It's not fancy, but it is welcoming and comfortable. A perfect place for casual dining.

Apparently the restaurant has had a number of incarnations as different styles of dining under different owners that for one reason or another didn't survive. The current owners (so far) seem to have the right stuff to last a while. It's hard to beat good simple Cuban food.

The food IS good, simple Cuban fare. No bells or whistles, just tasty wholesome staples. I had the roast pork with rice & black beans and maduros (fried sweet plantains). It was very tasty and generously portioned.

Service was adequate though a little on the slow side. They definitely don't hover over you as you eat. It can be a little difficult to get a servers attention. But the food was brought out promptly.

The prices were also quite reasonable.

I look forward to eating there again.

“Great comfort food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Everyone was so happy after eating fish every night. Cuban dishes are very good with big portions. Pepper steak and pork items were great. Quick service on a busy night.

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Stopped by chance and we were glad we did. Full of locals always a good sign. Too late for the Cuban burger but we had the Cuban sandwich. Excellent but too large so we were offered a takeout box. Very good value and very efficient quick staff.
