A warm greeting. Nope. Just a simple "good evening". Waitress? Just as stale and tasteless as rice without salt. She couldn't crack a smile. What was interesting was that... More

What fun we had trying to converse with people at nearby tables and our waiter. The food was great - we tried things we had never had before and were rewarded.

Recently ate lunch here with my family during spring break. Second time we've eaten here when visiting Miami. Located on Calle Ocho, this is an older restaurant with very good food at a fair price. They also have an outdoor counter extension where you can order Cuban coffee, sandwiches, and pastries if you opt for a meal to go. The... More

I suggest everyone should give this restaurant a try. I had never had Cuban food and wanted to check it out. Everything was delicious! The roast pork was fantastic and the Cuban sampler was really good. Our server was really friendly and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. Go here!
