We had never tried Cuban food before except for a cubano sandwich. This was some of the best food I've eaten. I had a pork dish & my husband had a shredded beef dish, they were both delicious.

We liked the restaurant a lot, we ate there twice during our stay in Miami Beach. Really good Cuban cuisine, we tried different dishes and they were all well made. Also, mojito was great!

We sat at a table on the sidewalk, on a beautiful Sunday nite. Food and drinks were excellent. Chicken with the gravy is their specialty, and the best. We had Mojotos and red sangria. Our server, from Cuba, was very knowlegeable and guided us in our choices. We would definitely go back.....

It was my first experience with Cuban cuisine for lunch. We stayed at a boutique hotel just steps away so we chose this restaurant instead of making the trek to Little Havana. My husband had the chicken specialty and I had beef in creole sauce. Both dishes were very tasty but I preferred the chicken dish. Given the size of... More

I had a reasonable meal. Not so exciting as it looks. I have since return to spain only to find that they have taken money from my debit card twice. My sister and I only had 2 main dishes, 2 drinks. The bill came to 88.31USD that was on the 15th Feb. I left Miami on the 16th Feb. On... More

We already had dinner reservations somewhere else but stopped here for a drink before we moved on. Were seated outside but at the front of the restaurant which meant we got to see the great eclectic Cuban decor as well as watch the world go by. I had a classic Mohito and my daughter had a virgin one. They give... More

Our food was very good; fresh, tasty & well presented. Service was very fast. Whilst it was busy and buzzing, with Cuban music in the background etc etc, it did all feel a little rushed and lacked a certain genuine atmosphere, but that could've been my jet lag. It's probably above average for the area but only just.

Food was tasty, atmosphere was fun but service left MUCH to be desired. Got caught in a shift change with the wait staff and our order was totally forgotten about... waited 30 minutes for sandwiches??? Was rudely dismissed when I asked, noting the table around us had ordered much more elaborate meals and had all ordered after us and were... More

We sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere around the area which was good for people watching. I had the Lechon Asado and the flavor was nice and meat was tender. The bar poured a fantastic mojito that was a good looking as it was tasty. Service was good and they were crowded. I'd return to the Espanola location anytime I... More
