Food was delicious and the staff was so friendly. The live music made for a authentic atmosphere. The chimichurri beef was so tender and flavorful.

Great food. Awesome mojitos. Great service. Only negative was tables are a little small. Other than that it’s awesome. I ordered the Havana Rumba (basically a cubano). I ordered the yucca fritas which was great.
