Had a family meal here last week. I am a cigar fan. This is the place to come for reasonably priced and high quality Cubans. The setting is awesome, food and service great. The manager is very personable- makes your visit very special.

By far the best in Bimini. They have done a great job renovating the restaurant. It is very clean and the service is great. I had the fried lobster with rice and tostones (fried plantain) and it was delicious.
