We decided to try Cuban food while visiting Hollywood. Nice restaurant with good service. Prices were reasonable. My fiance really liked the skirt steak. The empanadas needed some kind of sauce. My friend serves them with a homemade salsa. The yuca was kind of gummy. I like that it is a family owned business rather than a chain.

Pleasant staff. Tasty mojitos! Simple and authentic Cuban food. Bustling room filled with nice mix of locals and visitors. Could be a bit cleaner though...

Took my aunts here from New York because they wanted authentic Cuban food. We ordered their pork special which is good, and a Cuban sandwich which is average. The sangria in a pitcher is worth the price though. It's ok to try but definitely won't come back.

We went there as a large group of 12, and without reservations only had to wait a half hour. We had fantastic service. The food was pretty good - we loved the vaca frita- the dishes are large. Very pleasant, simple atmosphere. We enjoyed this restaurant very much

Enjoyed a very well prepared authentic meal. The paella was very moist and full of seafood. My friend had a mojito and said it was very good. Service was nice and prompt. Enjoyed the decor and the restaurant was clean.

We were driving thru the area and drove out of our way to eat here. It was worth it. The food was really good! Loved the pollo con arroz, plantains, black beans and rice, and the roasted pork. The only thing I thought was not on par was the Cuban Bread. It was different than what we are used to...

Thank Sharon P
