We showed up late at night following a Philharmonic Concert and not expecting a lot from this unassuming, suburban, store front establishment, but boy...were we surprised! The service was 10 stars, on a a 5 star scale and the food, simply incredible. This place is worth the drive even if you are miles away. We lived it and will find... More

Awesome food! I had the shrimp and chicken paella which was tasty and the shrimp juicy. The fried plantains were good as well. My husband had an amazing pork chop Cuban style. The pork was flavorful and came with very good black beans, rice and yucca. The kids each ordered from the kids menu which was grilled cheese with curly... More

On our last day in Miami, my boyfriend and I wanted to try some Cuban food. We picked this place based on Yelp reviews. When arriving, there was plenty of seating, so we were just informed us to take a seat wherever we'd like. As soon as we were seated, the waiter came up and just started speaking Spanish to... More

It's never been like this. Poor service. Poor food. Slow! Walked in to have to wait to be seated while the restaurant was half empty. They would simply pass by and not acknowledge us as if we were invisible. Taking the order took forever and getting the bread , appetizers and food was another long wait. Food was stale and... More

Went for Cuban delights, pastelitos, empanadas, cafe and croquettes. Their croquettes are exceptionally delicious and if in the area well worth stopping in just for it.

I've been coming to Islas Canarias for years, as I live nearby. I'm always recommending it to others. I was born and raised Cuban, though I've lived in the Miami for 55 years, coming at the age of 7. I know what Cuban food should taste like. Hands down, their croquettes are the best in town (though I didn't try... More

Islas Canarias originally opened its doors about 40 years ago on the corner of NW 27th. Avenue and 3rd. Street. From the start their claim to fame and to this day are the "CROQUETAS", no one makes these CROQUETAS like Isla Canarias and for CROQUETA lovers their is no other choice. Overall their Cuban Food and Sandwiches are fantastic and... More
