Great flavor and authentic Cuban food. I had the whole fried snapper and it was amazing! It came with 2 sides and a salad with their vinaigrette dressing. I chose pigeon pea rice and black beans. Best black beans ever!I split the sampler platter with...friends for an appetizer. Love the Yuca fries and papas rellenas. The sampler oak tree also came with ham and cheese croquette and two empanadas. The chicken one was ok but the beef one was better. Ask for a side of the garlic sauce. You won’t be sorry. My friends got the Piccadilly and pork mofungo. Both were well seasoned and a good portion. I highly recommend this place!More

We went here from work for lunch today. It is basically a buffet style restaurant (at least for lunch... might be different for dinner) where you choose a meat (pork, chicken or beef), your rice, beans, and between plantains or yucca. The servings are decent...size and the prices are fair. The food was good, not great. All in all it was an average experience and I am open to going back.More

Was in the Waterford lakes area and decided to try this place. First I ordered the Chicken Breast meal with 2sides(extra side sweet plantains)and a soda to stay. Went to seat down and then a half and hour later finally got my food in a...to go box no salad though and had to ask for my soda!! All that for 18.00!! Luckily the food was good and the portion was big but not worth all that wouldn’t go back again there are plenty of good places that the service is much better!!!More

I went here with a few friends and it seem like the dishes were hit or miss some people. Some liked their food some people didn't. I particularly did not care for the picadillo that I had and the tostones really were overcooked however, the...service was very good our waiter was very friendly and kind.More

I order my meal through Uber Eats and received a nice note thanking me for my order, kinda surprised me but brightened my day nonetheless. The food itself was amazing and came in large portions. I ordered the chicken cuts with yucca and they where...crispy juicy pieces of meat.More

We have been here a couple of times for lunch and their lunch specials (hot bar) is always good; I only wish they had Ropa Vieja for lunch. Service is also good!

The food here is great! This is the only area restaurant where my son can eat, he is allergic to seafood, peanuts and corn oil, just to name a few. He is not allergic to this food and trusts the way they prepare their food....He eats here all the time and has never had a bad reaction, they prepare all their food without contaminating any of it. Our favorite here is the baked pork dinner, three possible kinds of rice available; we get white rice cooked with black beans, (cardamon in the rice is a no-no); plantains; baked pork; with a side portion of black beans--this dinner is $8.95. Their flan is good, but at $3 a bit pricey. People without allergies will really love this place, we can not eat ir bring anything our son is allergic to into the house. I ordered two dinners tonight and took them home.More
