4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This restaurant serves authentic Cuban food at a reasonable price. The place is always busy during the winter season. It is closed for the summer. I have had the Cuban sandwich several times. The grouper sandwich is also excellent.

This place is a gem! The people there worked very hard to make our large party feel welcome. We were greeted with smiles, and fantastic food. This is a must do!

It would be nice to out this bit of information was not only on your mobile website but also here on TripAdvisor. We drove from Kissimmee, although we were staying in Everglades City, it looked like it was closed permanently. That's when we saw the sign. Some locals told us the same thing with the attitude like everyone knows this.... More

Only open during season and always crowded, but worth the wait. The have great pulled pork Cuban style, black bean soup, and their seafoos if mostly fresh. Friendly staff.

Visited on 2 April 2016 with my family. Had the misfortune of being waited on by Dilcia, a rude, aggressive waitress. We arrived at ten to two in the afternoon. After sitting for 30 minutes, I got up and politely asked Dilicia to bring us some menus, only to be yelled at that I should be patient and 'just relax... More

OMG the food was amazing and the place was packed - we were seated quickly (within 10 minutes) and because they had run out of a few items on the menu our waitress comped us an appetizer. Once we got our food it was oh so good - peel and eat shrimp. Next time we are in the area we... More

Unique restaurant but closed for the season the day after we visited. Food was fantastic. We had the shrimp plate and the pork plates which were both excellent. We are outside and it was very charming. Not a place to go when you are in a hurry as it took at least 20 minutes to get our check and another... More
