Casa Panza was a really good restaurant many years ago. Now has a new owner. First, there were several items in the menu that were not available. Second, there was not wine list because they had a new provider. Then we ordered and the appetizers were not served to all parties at the same time. We had to turn back... More

We were just walking around Calle Ocho to check out Little Havana. The mojitos here are 2 for 1 (like most of Miami). So we decided to try the mojitos. We expected average and got SPECTACULAR!!!! Guess it's true that the Cubans know how to make these drinks yummy!!!!!

Hot summer! Cold Mojito was good and tasty. Menus are ok with a bit pricey. I would say menus are too americanized.

We fell into this restaurant tired and hot, came out much refreshed. My first impression was that I could have been in Spain, same decor, same food, only differently accented Spanish! The food was fine, nice lamb and steak and salad, OK flan and tart. Service was pleasant. Prices were high but it is a very touristy area.

Don't ever visit this place. basically they steal your money. Food is very average... Service? They don't even know what does mean this word.

We stopped in for a light meal and some drinks. We had stuffed peppers, garbanzo beans, and sautéed shrimp-- all delicious! We also enjoyed the complimentary bread and the MOJITOS!!! Really the best I've ever had and we had several! We would have stayed longer but we had to make another engagement. Definitely recommended and you must try the mojitos!!

Everything is over priced, small and ridiculous portion, there is not control of people enter to the club area. I was surprised over vulgar jokes and really in last time will be there.

This place has OK food, no wow factor (even with the overpriced $40 ribeye, which is their signature dish). The most ridiculous part is $20 cover charge per person, honestly not worth it. I took my mom here for her birthday, she loves the comedian Juan de Alba which performs on Saturday nights, but to my surprise there was this... More

The only thing good about this place was the food and when the actual flamenco dancers were performing but then they brought out a man dressed as a flamenco dancer to sing, dance and tell tasteless vulgar jokes. I was shocked to hear so many vulgar jokes when there were many children in the restaurant. His singing was not pleasant...felt... More

There's nothing too fancy about this place but it's pretty cute. Our waitress didn't speak a work of English (only Spanish) so she had to call a man who spoke English to translate. But she was friendly and trying as best as she could. Before you are seated, if you are there on the weekend, they will try to persuade... More
