The front desk staff of our hotel recommended this eatery for lunch our first day in town. It was our 1st time eating cuban food. It was a small establishment, but the customer service was good. The food was great, but the sangria and mojitos were the best ever.

We came here on a Thursday night and it was exactly what we wanted. The atmosphere: dark wood furniture, over-stuffed burgundy leather seats, 1950s feeling signs and art, soft music setting the mood. The food: we chose shredded pork with black beans and rice along with a beef dish paired with yucca and fried plantains. Both had succulent, nuanced flavor.... More

When I had a seat at the bar, I was told by the manager my coupon... More

Right on the beachfront in South Beach, we stopped in for lunch and drinks. Pricey, but great food and service.

Had lunch here while in South Beach. Loved the restaurant and how authentic it was. The staff were very helpful and made great recommendations. The food arrived fast and was delicious. I had a cuban sandwich and also tried the cuban coffee. Loved both. Highly recommend.

We stopped there for a mojito one evening while we were in South Beach. Service was fast and very friendly. They have many different choices of flavored mojito's. I got the raspberry mojito and my wife tried the passion fruit mojito. They also gave us a bowl of plantain chips. They were very good and really crunchy too. Both mojito's... More

We come here here every year on vacation. Food and service are great. Try the white sangria. The special chicken and Cuban sandwiches are our favorites. Both locations are convenient.

Thank tweeters2005
