Not the best Cuban cuisine one could ask for. Lacking taste. If you've been spoiled with good Cuban food you might leave a bit disappointed.

This place is pretty great and everything on the menu is good, but don’t order the Cuban sandwich. It’s dry, cold bread with cold meats. Not pressed, no mustard and no buttery outer crust. The other stuff was delicious, but the Cuban sandwich sucked.

I know there are rice, beans, tostones, platanos maduros, salad and bread. Cubans eat a lot of meat and this would not be a choice pick for vegetarians, however one could find options there. Plenty of wine and sangria!
