El Siboney is our top recommendation for a restaurant in Key West. The food is reasonably priced and it gives you a true Cuban food experience. The pork here is outstanding and is recommended in the platter or sandwich version. The sangria is also very good and there is a decent selection of beers in bottles. Off the beaten path... More

El Siboney for Sunday lunch. Great Cuban food in a small family run restaurant. El Siboney is the name of a Cuban Indian tribe which explains the Indian themed artwork. Attentive quick service. We shared two combo plates - Ropa Viejo (shredded beef) and roast chicken. Plates come with black beans, rice and fried plantains. Nice conversation with the manager... More

Perfect place for a Cuban lunch. Perfect size of diches. Not expensive (for 3 people with beers it was 60$). One of our favorite meal in Florida. Go without any hesitation.

When in Key West, it's a sin not to try to eat some authentic Cuban food and El Siboney has a great menu to help appease that craving. It's not an upscale dining area and it's not right on Duval - some may say it's a bit off the beaten path - but it's worth venturing the extra 10 minute... More

My husband got a cuban grouper filet and I had cuban style meatballs. The food was average nothing very different or exciting and almost a little on the bland side. The food might have tasted better had we had better service. Our waiter was infatuated with the two young girls next to us. He would literally sit down at their... More

3rd time visiting and am never dissapointed. Fabulous fried pork, chicken and yellow rice and cuban sandwich this time. Gets popular so eat early or be prepared to wait.

We went for lunch. Essentially flavors were good but my chicken was a bit dry. I had leftovers but the chicken was too dry to adequately reheat. However, the BEST Key Lime Pie we had during our stay was here at El Siboney. Hands down the best pie.

Thank Monica R
Julio D, Owner at El Siboney Restaurant, responded to this review

We're really disappointed to hear our chicken let you down, Monica! We try and make every dish on our menu a show-stopper like our Key Lime Pie is, but it's evident we couldn't quite do that this time. However, we know we can do better, so we hope you can give us a second chance again someday! Sincerely, El Siboney... More

Ordered the Vaca Frita and it was amazing. Think we got lucky as it was not crowded and got seated right away. Service was great. Authentic Cuban food and would definitely return.
