Good location in Vedado. Went there two times after giving up on good Cuban restaurants. This place is a saviour. In particular the service and the decor and cleanliness. Large portions (for a change) and most items on the menu actually are available

I decided to visit after a few friends recommendations. Not impressed at all. Service was slow and the food wasn't as I expected. Some were overcooked. The octopus was great but the rest we order wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Prices...More

This was a pretty average place. We really wanted to like the food, but the poor service and the constant arguing of customers wanting the food "already" and "bring our check" made things unpleasant. So we ate with little enthusiasm and then......waited a long time...More
