While I have not been to Cuba, this place has excellent food of that culture. The food is well spiced - flavorful but not overwhelming. The selection is large. This is a great place to do for excellent food

I ordered the ropa vieja and it was spot-on so I tried the flan which was amazing. Full bar and attentive service make this a great spot if you are in the mood for Miami-style Cuban food. They take pride in their cooking and it shows.

It's fine nothing major to complain about just typical Cuban food with a typical Cuban music in the background and then nothing to when you over Okie bring you back to this to this location. I like my food to be clean but every single time I order anything from there you're just doing everything you can taste the rice... More

Fabulous so good. Nothing like I expected. Nothing like Mexican food but chock full of flavor. The Yucca was terrific. I will make it a point to go back every time i am in the LA area. The waitet went out of his way to make sure we had a nice dinner.

We went on a Friday night. Excelent food, service and entertainment...there was a combo playing...the singer had a voice reminiscent of Sinatra. She was crooning out those Latin melodies...so enjoyable. This was an unexpected find while visiting LA!

While visiting LA went for some cuban fare. I just want to say that the bread service was much better than I expected. The menu was full cuban favorites, but the sweet plantains were a little under cooked, and the white rice was a little overcooked. Still, my steak was excellent as was the flan.. I would go again.

Today we just stopped there first time for lunch and loved it! I ordered garlic chicken, and my husband ordered some beef dish. I liked his dish better, but both were very good! Recommend!
