We ate here TWICE for dinner. The seafood paella was probably the best I have ever had. We came back for it the 2nd time, and for whatever reason they told us they couldn't make it. We had lobster instead which was fabulous! The downside...More

It is an amazing paladar to taste the most the Cuban most famous cuisine. Coctails are super well prepared and staff is very friendly. There is only one thing I don't like: they have two menus, one for Cubans and one for tourists. Both are...More
