Excellent restaurant even though it looks a little divey. Food was excellent and the service was good for the amount of people that they had. Even has parking (rare for Key West).

I liked this restaurant so much that in my 5 day in Key West we visited twice. The food is fantastic, the coffee is amazing. If you want a fix of spanish food this is the place to go. It's off the beaten path, many locals visit and not many tourist know about this place. Make arrangements to visit, you... More

Way overrated. Rice and beans and chicken. Nothing special. Why so many tourists flock to this place, I will never understand. The service is not friendly.

Great selection of authentic tasting items. Hard to choose a favorite. They also have a really good burger for less than $3! We love to eat lunch here while riding the island.

Great authentic restaurant. Friendly service. We had pepper steak and stuffed crab. Mmmmmm-mmmmmmmm. The steak was very tender and both meals were very flavourful, So far this is the only restaurant I have found in Key West that provides a filling meal for anything resembling a fair price. I just wish we had found it earlier in our vacation.

The skirt steak, rice and beans were really good. The Portions were good size. The Grouper could be mistaken for catfish. The Sangria was on par and a half of a pitcher gets you about 5 glasses. We would go back!!

We bike and walk past this restaurant and the smells were calling us. So we dined there in early July. We had a small wait. The place is homey, pretty casual. Tightly packed. The menu was very reasonably priced. I had the pork dinner at the top. It was good, but my husband really enjoyed his...not sure what it was.... More

While on vacation my husband and I decided to go out of our comfort zones and try new things. Our quest in Key West was to try authentic Cuban food. We were under the impression that Cuban food was super spicy like most Mexican food. Wow, were we wrong. El Siboney is located in a house converted into a restaurant... More
