“LOUD, HOT AND CROUDED!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Well, I expected it to be just that! The music was very good and the variety just as good but, the ambiance... the lack of courtesy and good sportsmanship among the crowds, I personally, did not agree with. The variety in food was as expected and the food was very tasty as well thou. The parking availability and the prices charged were outrageous.

“Too little Cuban culture”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Guess I was waiting to hear salsa on the streets and people dancing all the time..It's just a street with some Cuban stores.

“Not a place for tourists”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I enjoy going to calle 8 to the theater, as they bring plays from Latin America all the time and they have many theaters in this district. But otherwise, not much to see here.

“Rough Neighborhood”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Little Havana... need I say more.
This is an old, dilapidated neighborhood. Can be dangerous. Nothing to see here. There's a reason most of the highways pass right by.
