“AMAZING... except for the tea.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Not a whole lot to say.
The food is absolutely fantastic.

Had Vaca Frita with Congri and Maduros.
Also had Yuca and Teqeunos for dessert. The Tequeños will blow your freakin' mind.

It was all fantastic.

My only complaint. Cuban Coffee naturally comes very sweetened. Why not the tea, considering that everywhere else in the Southeast U.S. serves sweet tea. Seriously.

Other than that it was just great.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

I love this place. The food is always good. It's fairly priced and food portions are always perfect. My wife and I come here for Breakfast ,Lunch and Dinner. It's never never extremely full.and the food comes out quickly. This is one of the best Cuban restaurants in Miami Lakes to say the least. Thumbs up to the management !!!

“Delish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

I was craving some authentic Cuban food and our hotel recommended this place. We were greeted immediately and food was out quickly. My only complaint is that we weren't brought side plates for our app and we waited a while for our check. Other than that I would highly suggest trying this place out. Everyone was friendly and the prices can't be beat!!!

“Don't know if it's authentic but it sure is good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Several people tell us this is authentic Cuban. Suspect that's true by the make up of the clientele but we are not Cuban so we can't judge. What we do know is how well prepared and flavorful the food is. I had beef medallions wrapped in bacon. I like the meat very rare. The chef was able to keep the beef very rare yet the outside was nicely charred. Very well prepared. My wife had a shredded chicken dish that was finished on the grill to give it a crisp exterior. Very tasty. The side dishes were very good with several choices.

We particularly like that the menu explains what each dish is. The waitstaff is attentive without hovering. Some language problems but that just adds to the charm. The manager stopped by and checked on how we enjoyed our meal.

Enjoyed our experience and will be back

“Simple but wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Went on recommendation and wow,was i glad i listened. Not fancy but down to earth, simple, good food. Dinner was a char-grilled steak w black beans and rice and plantains. Pairing that with a nice Sangria was a good choice. Very inexpensive, dinner was only $16 plus the Sangria. located in a shopping center, it was not the easiest to find but well worth the effort. I will make it a regular stop anytime i am in the area.
