We love this restaurant, the food and the service has always been great! The location is off the beaten path and you actually have locals eating at this location. The Cuban bread is terrific.

Working off TA ratings, we walked here from Southern Point. Buried in a residential neighborhood and frequented by neighbors. No reservations and the place was packed. Dining room is sort of hidden from the entrance so don't be off put. Food was like home cooking. Nothing fancy just great food at a wonderful price. Sangria was too good.

The casual atmosphere and delicious Cuban cuisine made this a great break from the awesome seafood we had been enjoying. From the looks of it, a lot of locals like this place, too! The service was fine, but more helpful and friendlier service would have made this a 5.

This was our first stop on a food tour and we were served Cuban pork, rice and beans, Cuban bread and Cuban coffee. SOOO GOOD, we would have stopped here again for another meal on our vacation but ran out of time.

Every “conch” we asked said this was the best place to go for great, “tipico” Cuban food at very reasonable prices. Their Picadillo with Rice and Beans and Sweet Plantains was excellent. They also had Hatuey Beer, a Cuban favorite, although theirs came out of South Carolina. Although El Sibonny is a bit off the beaten path, it’s well worth... More

My Wife and I eat at El Siboney every visit to Key West ! And usually twice in the week we are visiting. I get the El Siboney steak, it is never disappointing. The seafood is good too with the Spanish flare.

Fast, friendly service with a delicious product. A nice break from the bustle of Duvall street. I sat by the door and saw everyone welcomed quickly and with a smile. Take it out, eat it in, just don't miss this wonderful culinary experience for dynamite Cuban food!!

Seems like mostly a local place. Food and service were great. Authentic Cuban food. Portions were not too large, but we did not leave hungry. Very reasonable prices.

This is a bit off the beaten path but we eat here every time we visit Key West. Renting bicycles makes this very walk-able island even more accessible. The cuban sandwiches are amazing - the bread crisp on the outside and soft in the middle. The fried yucca is always a great side dish - though I don't really know... More

The place is pretty far from the main drag of restaurants on Duval Street and Mallory Square but it's a hidden gem. Enough people knew about it because there was a big crowd of people waiting for tables by the time we finished our dinner. The place is very informal and reasonably priced, perfect for families. The service was a... More
