The Cubano Sandwich was brilliant! I thought the service was professional and courteous! We were there at lunch but would go back for music the next time we are in town.

I went there with my husband to have dinner and drinks. The monjitos are ok, the food was ok but not delicious. In my opinion the meals are expensive for what they offer.
