The food was good. The service was ok, the waiter seemed overwhelmed at times. The Milanese was good. The boiled yuca was great. The flan tasted old, but was not terrible.

Tamale Cubanos are delicious. The staff is friendly. The dining room is suffering from a identity crisis. I could not focus on my meal because there is music playing in the bar and live music in the dining room. Listening to both is weird. It ruined my meal and atmosphere. Pick one or the other. Thank goodness for the staff.

I have been coming to Don Arturo's for thirty years. It is always excellent food and service. I recommend Masa de Puerco, yuca, moros. Don't miss out on the Cuban coffee called colada.

Good food. Tasted the tamale and steak. Service was good. Rice and beans were good and the fried tostones were really good.

Really want to try this place. We heard great things.. Got all the way there but never got the chance. Why does it close so early..? 9:30pm is a very weird time.

I was in Ft Lauderdale for a night with the family. I was looking for a place to eat some Cuban food. I didn't feel like driving down to Miami and was told about this place. We went on a Wednesday evening for an early dinner. The place wasn't crowded and we sat right away. We were waited on right... More

Good food & plenty of it! Only thing is that not many people go there, it was pretty empty when we went granted we have an early dinner. They do have entertainment, but not very good. Good food for a great price though. I'd say 3.5/4

Loved this meal!!! We ordered tostones as an appetizer and three different entrées ...all lunch specials under nine dollars. The food was delicious I would definitely recommend the fried steak it was crispy and the chimichurri sauce was excellent with sautéed onions .... My sister said the roasted pork with sweet plantanes were amazing. It fills up for lunch so... More

The food here is amazing. We had both the chicken and pork with rice/black beans. Huge portions with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day. The decor is a bit dated but you can overlook that for the great food.
