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

My mouth is watering just writing this reviews. We have returned here 6 years in a row and are never disappointed. Not far from our hotel, we love walking over so that we can attempt to walk off the huge amount of food we always eat. Pure authentic Cuban food without the tourist glitz, glam and hype. We generally arrive... More

We stumbled upon El Siboney during a previous visit many years ago and were worried it may have turned into a tourist driven establishment, but we were delighted to find it has retained its authentic Cuban cuisine and charm.

Cuban influenced local place. Crowded and no reservations. Arrived at 7:15, told we wait 20 minutes or so. Waited 65 minutes. By the time we got i n, the tables were less than full, yet we waited 40 minutes for our order. Other than that, the food was good, plenty of it and diverse in menu. Prices were quite good,... More

We appreciate your patience on the wait and apologize for the misquoted time estimate. Our tables usually move much quicker than they did that day, so of course you have our sincerest apologies. At the end of the day, we know there are plenty of great restaurants in Key West, but we hope you can give us a second chance... More

Very good Cuban food. Quick service and healthy portions. Price is reasonable. We stop by for lunch and we're seated immediately service was very good.

If you were to only eat one meal in key west this should be it. No reservations required and ticked away in the Cuban community. Amazing tasting and very inexpensive. Friendly staff and tourist friendly
