“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Food was authentic. Very flavorful and can't beat the prices. Friendly service. Great atmosphere. Located in the Howard Joshnson Hotel on Las Vegas Blvd.
I would recommend to my friends to try the restaurant when visiting Las Vegas

“Still crave it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Although the restaurant is an expensive cab ride away from the strip it is well worth the trip. Its location may turn you off but don't be fooled The food was excellent. Service was great. Tostones were the freshest that I've ever had. Breaded steak was delicious. Don't leave without trying their Tres Leches. You can skip the flan.

“Authentically Cuban and Downright Delightful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

It's worth the drive to the older section .. you won't be sorry! Appetizers were awesome, homemade salad dressing with garlic and lime juice .. yummy! And the daiquiri more than wets your whistle .. it makes you whistle! :)

“Cuban Buffet now CLOSED!!! But, the cafe still "Ok"...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We were extremely disappointed that the buffet was no longer open...and almost did not stay, but we did...we had our same waiter from the buffet and he explained which menu items were the same as certain items previously on the buffet. So, we ordered one Cuban dinner and one burger platter.

Both were good and we will indeed return, but it is just not the some as the buffet. Really miss the buffet.

Note: Service was a bit slow, but very friendly and very helpful...so not a problem for us...

“One of the most pleasant surprises in Vegas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

We ordered a bit of everything here and were with a Latino friend/co-worker and all in the party agreed that everything was awesome. The Cuban sandwiches, the plantains, beans and rice, everything! Highly recommended. Don't let the fact that it's in an older HoJo type hotel and not in one of those high-rise hotels on the strip turn you off to it.
