David explained everything in detail and his recommendations for appetizers and dinner were spot on. For an appetizer we had the calamari, which was excellent. My wife and stepson had the freshest Salmon dinner and I had the Red Snapper fish dinner.... More

We enjoyed the selections from salads, to wraps and burgers to full luncheon meals of chicken or beef served with black beans and rice. Very tasty and full of flavor. Be sure to try the Yucca fries.

Lovely contemporary room and we were seated at a great table facing the pool and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. Started off with not so Cuban, but very tasty, tuna tartare followed by the Cuban Steak with black beans... More

We enjoyed our dinner so much! I had the scallops and my husband had the meal that was "Gloria's Favorite". We enjoyed them both so much! We also went back another night for dessert and coffee. We had this amazing chocolate dessert that was excellent.

We have eaten there three times now and will always make it a point to dine there each visit to Vero. Great food, efficient and friendly staff. This last visit though it did get a bit loud in there and it completely droned out the musician playing a ukulele and singing.

THe restaurant has a great ambiance. Music inside and also outside. Now, the food was very good. We tried the Cuban Style steak and the Ropa Vieja. The size of the portions was very generous. Comes with sweet plantains and black beans. Very recommended.
