Good cuban food - especially the chicken. Drinks can be expensive so choose happy hour. They do have very loud live "music" in the evenings and it can be difficult to avoid. I would not go in the evening after 6.30pm.

Food is just ok and definitely overpriced for what it is. The place has very poor lighting. The menu is extensive and they offer most famous Cuban dishes. I ordered the Chicken vaca frita and it was tasty but nothing out of this world.
