We made a reservation for dinner before seeing a show at the Fisher Theatre. First of all, the pitcher of sangria is huge. We tried the blended type and all enjoyed it. We all tried something different, and each dish was delicious! I ordered the trout and was so happy with my decision. It would be fun to go back... More

Fabulous place to eat. The food was excellent, with a good variety of choices. The weather was lovely, and we were able to eat outside. Fun! The service was also excellent. I highly recommend one try it.

Where to begin... Totally AWESOME place to eat. Service (thank you, Brittany) outstanding. I had the special of the day 'Camerons Provenzal' which was THE BEST shrimp I've ever had in my life!!! For dessert, Chocolate Trifle cake, to die for!!! And you have to have a Liquor 43 in a dark chocolate shot glass. Fantastic restaurant for special occasions.... More

My boyfriend ordered the veal which was tender and he really liked the sauce that was on it. I ordered the special which was butterflied... More

It called itself Cuban but has a number of plates original from Spain. Food is good in ok portions but I expected the food to taste a little bit more like original cuban food. Good service

I went on a Wednesday with a small group of friends. There was live music which was great. Our waiter Oskar was knowledgable and very helpful. I had 'Old Clothes' which was a lovely pork dish with black bean sauce and rice. Delicious! We each had a couple of Caipirinhas which were very yummy. We saw the seafood paella come... More

This is a great little place that is close to Greektown and a fun night out for Salsa dance and authentic Cuban cuisine. The food was very good and the wait staff was fun and on point. A really nice crowd all there to have a good time and the Mojitos were the best, a must try. Also, I recommend... More

First time visit this week. Will definitely try to stop by again when in town. I tried the arroz con pollo to see how they did with the classics. They killed it. Really enjoyed it. Nice decor and very good service. Everyone else enjoyed their meals.

Thank Jim M
