The food was excellent! I ordered the Cubano which was great. I had no idea the bread was so good! I ordered an extra sandwich for the next day—I recommend doing the same!

They were SO rude. We wanted the check split and they said bo so we asked for a manager. the manager came and yelled at us for us not telling the waiter that we wanted split in the beginning. She said I will do it...this time but not again. We said don’t worry there won’t be a next time.More

Our daughter-in-law was staying in South beach for a business meeting and we were meeting her for dinner. When in Miami, eating Cuban food is a must. Puerto Sagua said they have been in business since 1962, must be one of the first Cuban restaurants....Very nice menu with a huge selection. An old tired restaurant that isn't upscale but very good food and service. Started with MARIQUITAS (BANANA CHIPS) with garlic sauce, very good. I tried the SHRIMP ENCHILADO (Cuban Style, served with Rice, Black Beans and Salad in a tomato sauce with onions and peppers, very good. My wife opted for the 1/4 ROAST CHICKEN .Rice, Black Beans and Sweet Plantain. Also very good. For dessert, coconut flan which was also very good.More

I was there this morning (5/23) and like most morning places on South Beach, they were still in the process of opening up. When I walked in, they politely let me know that they weren't yet open, but when I asked if I could just...get some coffee, they happily made me some. Very nice staff; I will be back againMore

We skipped the fancy expensive places, and went to Puerto Saguara instead. The food was delicious. The service was quick and friendly. I would highly recommend it.

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, good selection on menu, food ok but not brilliant, expensive for the style of restaurant (more of a casual cafe style location) and quality of food, glad we went but wouldn’t rush back unfortunately

We spent 99 dollars for lunch ( two people) today. I never write negative reviews in my life. Because we saw so many positive reviews and decided to try it today. Very very disappointing!!!!How can this restaurant be rated for 1 $; it should be...at least 3 $$$ restaurant. The medium Cuban sandwich 12.95. Taste is ok and my oxtail stew 23.95 is good. The 1/2 carafe sangria (23.94) it is outrageous! . I had Cuban coffee 5.75 and my husband had expresso 3.95 . The very tiny flan costs 7.50. When we asked for the receipt, the waitress told us that they don’t give the receipt but we can take a picture. The receipt is hand written receipt. The food is just Ok and the price is ridiculous. Not recommended.More

Don't be fooled by the decor! Cuban sandwich and bean soup were excellent. The waitress was very nice. Went back for breakfast but there were no seats available.

Our concierge recommended this place as true Cuban restaurant. It is more like a cafeteria. I had pulled beef with ruce and my husband had chicken with rice. The toasted and buttered Cuban bread was delucious.

Visited on a Tuesday afternoon and seated immediately outside (for 2). Ordered a large Cuban sandwich ($12), chicken fingers with fries ($15), a side salad with tomato ($6), and a vanilla milkshake ($6.50). Husband enjoyed the Cuban, and the other items were good also. Waitress...was very kind and attentive. Food came out rather quickly. Unfortunately, when we sat down, some of the surfaces were not entirely clean, and we found several pieces of small hairs on the condiments bottles. Several pieces of lettuce in my salad were covered in dirt. While we did enjoy the meal overall, it didn't feel very clean or sanitary to eat there.More

We visited on a recent family trip through Florida and had heard that this was the real deal...it was good Cuban food, but there was something lacking in the overall flavor and presentation...it was good, but certainly not the best I've had in the US...and Cuba. The staff was somewhat dismissive, possibly due to the heavy tourist flow, of which we were three, but those things count...good food and good service...that's all it takes to make folks happy...they could try a bit more.More

I don’t know. Check their website. A restaurant typically list the times they serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, etc.
