Excellent food and service. We were treated to this by our daughter who lives in Louisville. We had never had authentic Cuban food before but are true fans now.

I've been bringing friends and colleagues here for years. Absolutely love the food, drinks and live music. I have many colleagues from out of town that go out of their way to eat here. A must try whether as a local or visitor. Oh! And did I mention how reasonably priced it is?
