“Good Cuban Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Stopped in for lunch and had the Steak on the grill special, served with black beans, rice and Plantains. Everything was very good and served hot. I would eat here again and try the cuban sandwich next time.
It's a small family run Cuban Restaurant. There are daily specials for $6.50 and at that price it is worth stopping by.

“I'm not Cuban, but this is good Cuban food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Every time we visit our friends in Sebring, we have to pick up lunch at Nelli's. The cuban sandwich is excellent. One sandwich can easily feed two people. It's not fancy, but the service was good and the food was great.

“Good solid Cuban food, very nice place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The place is hidden away om the soth side of Sebring. We were looking for an another place and found this one, It was even better!! Living near Miami, I have been to numerous Cuban Resturants and Neli's is equal or better thanthe Miami Cuban Resturants. The staff is very friendly. Everyone in the group liked the food.

“Not Fancy, but good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

This is a no frills eatery specializing in Cuban food. I am not an expert in cuban food, but what I have eaten here is very good. Portions are large and prices reasonable. Service is casual but ok. Daily specials are very good.

“REAL CUBAN FOOD !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Located on US 27 @ south end of Sebring, this place is a very basic "hole in the wall" family run establishment. We drove by @ 7:45 on a Saturday night, and were not sure if they were still open. The proprietor came out and greeted us in the parking lot, and very graciously welcomed us in. We sat under a thatched roof cabana...inside, decorated with authentic Cuban music instruments. There were 7 of us and we ordered everything that he recommended...... Croquetas, whole fried snapper, bistek de pollo, carne asado, with the best flan and cuban coffee we ever had for desert. The food and service were EXCELLENT, but the building, furnishings, and decor are VERY simple and basic, but clean. i have been back twice since my first visit, and the experience was the same. ENJOY !!!
