I have zero experience with Cuban food. I loved the El Cubano. Our 3 year old devoured the rice and beans. She didn't want to try an empanada, but I thought they were delicious. It is a small establishment with the nicest staff. I splurged...and cafe con liche. It was wonderful. Save room for flan!More

Excellent quickie dinner while we were on the road. Arroz con pollo and a cubano sandwich hit the spot.

Had dinner here August 2 and really enjoyed it. Very fast and pleasant service. I had the picodillo with sweet plantains and rice and beans. All was very good but I couldn’t finish the rice and beans as it was a very large portion. Prices...are very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Definitely will return.More

Excellent food. We liked everything. Authentic flavors, freshly made, excellent service. We tried the picadillo, lechón, pizza pan and croquetas. Ended with a “cortadito” and a flan. Delicious!!

A true gem were you eat to your heart’s content. The “Arroz Con Pollo” Chicken and Rice is the best I’ve ever had and true tasted home made. The Ropa Vieja and Moros were out of this world delicious as well as the yuca/mojo and...platanos. If you are looking for a small relaxed restaurant I highly recommend this wonderful establishment. The server is amazing truly understands how to make everyone feel special and welcomed into her restaurant.More

A little hole in the wall place in a strip center. The food was very good. A lot of good items on menu. Our server took good care of us. This is a small place but it was great because only a few people were...inside which made it better and more relaxing.More

I've tried this place twice in the span of one month - once for takeout and once for dine-in. Great both times. BFF and I shared a take-out sampling of their beef, chicken, and spinach empanadas (highly recommend the spinach), croquetas, and the picadillo bowl....The other day, I sat down for lunch of a bistec de palomilla with yellow rice/black beans (counts as 1 side) and tostones (yum). There was a wonderful garlicky aioli that was served on the side that took the dish to another level. I found the service to be quite good, prompt on refilling my drink. Tough time to start a business, but there were several other diners enjoying their meals. Come support this local restaurant!More

This is an easy five stars. Doesn’t matter what you order, you are going to love it. Tampa Cuban sandwich is the bestttttt ! The bread is SO crispy. Tried the Vieja sandwich for the first time today too. La vieja sandwich had a lot...of meat and a sweet sauce on it. I’m full and happyMore

I discovered this place by accident, since then I had been there several times. They have the best tostones I ever had, better than my grandma’s😜. Everything I have tried is wonderful, croquetas, black beans, plantain bites, yuca fries are yummy, delicious cuban sandwich. Very...clean place, modern decor, very friendly. I will highly recommend it for a tasty cuban food at great prices, I wish they were in Safety Harbor, but it is worth the drive. Give them a try and you will not be disappointed!More
