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.

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

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.

Took the boys to an authentic Spanish restaurant because they wanted to try it. We were not at all dissapointed, the food was fantastic. More than enough and besides the dinners we also ordered the paella. Definitely a place to visit if you are looking for great food.

Ate with about others using a menu selection predetermined and was happy with the food and the service. It was great to be welcomed late in the evening, normally after the restaurant closed. Thanks to the staff.

This place is just great! Not only is it cheap but the food they serve is delicious. Portions are very generous. Our server was very kind and answered our questions with professionalism. I recommend the lechon asado and the trio cubano.
