“Excellent Cuban Food!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

I love to go to this place because they have a good service. The food they serve is mainly Cuban.
The Restaurant is clean and neat something I love to see when I go to eat outside. The Food tastes good and they serve you fast.
If you are around Sunny Isles or BalHarbour and feel hungry this could be one of your choices either Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner!.

“Bad experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Service was poor; we had to ask for orders multiple times. Drinks were very overpriced. The staff was rude when we complained.

“Mediocre food and poor service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

First time I have been disappointed after going to a restaurant recommended by members on trip advisor. There is much better cuban available nearby. The waitress completely ignored us during our lunch despite that fact the place was not full. Everyone seemed to have a bit of an attitude. It took over 15 minutes to just get the check from a different waitress...nobody cares. The cuban food was nothing special and below pare for this part of south Florida. My wife's breaded fried steak was all breading and over cooked. Very disappointing. Go over the bridge to Hallandale for much better cuban.

“Great informal Cuban restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Located in a mall off 1A1 in Sunny Isles, this simple restaurant has delicious Cuban cuisine. We had the Fajita de Churra, with nice chunks of beef in a great sauce, and the Lechon Asado, some of the most delicious pork I've ever had. Both come with sides; we had sweet plantains and black beans. The chicken soup was less exciting. All very reasonably priced. Great service. Karaoke on Fridays, live salsa music on Saturdays.
