Live music, and busy atmosphere and authentic food and drink. I enjoyed every ounce of air breathed and morsel consumed. Would I go again... it will be my first port of call!

There was only one waiter for the whole restaurant and we had a meal of which the meat was dry, very salty and overcooked. No vegetables included. So expect meat, Rice with beans and yucca.

We asked the waiter for the best tasting food & the restaurant's best seller... It failed to leave a lasting GOOD taste...

Nice little restaurant with very reasonable prices. We ordered ropa vieja which we'd eaten several times in Cuba and thought it was very good. Nice atmosphere, very centrally located.

Nice place, good food. Decent price but not a bargain. Ask for your yuca fried rather than boiled- its 100 times better that way!

I didn't know what to expect with Cuban food never having had it before or been to Cuba. So I ordered the only vegetarian thing on the menu and hoped for the best (as us vegetarians often do!) I was not disappointed at all. It was a lovely combination of rice & beans, yams with cheese and salad with avocado.... More

we absolutely loved this place, the food, the ambiance, the glaciers, prices, service was top notch, not like the poor service and food from the Mexican restaurant up the street kalakitas, they were mean and rude, best chioice around San Francisco. Really an oasis in the tourist traps of sagaarnaga!!!

Went looking for a salsa dancing opportunity. Unless the salsa music began after midnight, this was not it and is very small and has no dance floor anyway. Did not eat here but really enjoyed the duo playing and singing on Fri and Sat nights from around 10.45pm - heart felt Latin ballads and tropical style music.

We absolutely loved the Cuban Sandwich and their homemade salsa picante! The drinks were also good, and if you visit Kalakita's in advance, you can still use their wifi from Sabor Cubano.

Really nice atmosphere and relaxed feel. Service is fast and efficient. Portions a bit too generous for me but my son helped me finish the shredded beef which was very good. He also enjoyed his lamb dish.

I think it's fairly new, right in the center of the tourist street. Don't know what else to add.... we stumbled on it when we found the place we wanted to go to had closed
