First...No moros. Then 45 minutes for rice, beans and pork chunks. Then we're told they're busy. Hello... I'm here.... there are at least 6 empty tables. Really? Not good enuf for the b/s.

The food exceeded my expectaions. The restaurant looks kind of like a Mexican restaurant but they have really good Cuban food.

Love this place. Always a treat to dive into their Ropa Vieja and mojitos. Can't wait until our next visit.
