Attention to detail, in the setting, service and food. I had the free range beef steak which ranked among the best I tasted. Excellent range of South African wines.

Great restaurant. Has more of the feel of a steakhouse than what goes for a Cuban restaurant in the states, so don’t be deceived by the name. While the wine selection, main course and dessert were solid, the pear salad with large halved candied pecans...More

Upmarket venue for that special dinner, tasteful decor with well trained waitrons. Suggest that reservation is made as I have been there on week nights and always well supported.
