Killer Ropa Veija, and nice mojitos! A great little gem that's easy to get to, and fill up on legit Cuban food!

The bar pulls in a good number of well-behaved folks, but for some reason the restaurant is never crowded, and it should be. Really good, reasonable Cuban specialties here in a spacious & more upscale setting than nearby La Isla. Get nice deals thru Groupon, too.

My husband & I had dinner here Saturday night. Food & Prices was great. We go to a lot of Spanish restaurants & my husband rated this #1 of all. If you are planning to go try the garlic shrimp for appetizers. And the oxtails for entrée was delicious.

My son's girlfriend and I had their Cuban sandwich, my wife had the Torrejas corn flake tres leche French toast, and lastly my son had the Ropa Vieja which was tender and amazing. Note: my son lives in Hoboken and eats here often - he... More

Multi level, dimly lit, sexy, romantic spot to enjoy Cuban food with a creative flair. Try to get seated upstairs which is IMO the better atmosphere. Service is always outstanding. Their drink list is awesome and they have 3 types of sangria. We tried the white and red (not the brazillian version), and they were very good, too sweet for... More

Highly seasoned Cuban food,welcoming decor, numerous seating options and can accommodate special events. The portions are very generous causing one to pause and even continue the experience at home. The advice of the servers is to be taken seriously. The coffee is quite good and there Is an interesting use of newspaper ( Cuban?) in the presentations.

I grabbed dinner here recently and the food was fairly good. The servers were friendly and helped me choose a great dinner. It's one of the better restaurants in the immediate area.

I decided to visit based on high Trip Advisor ranking and first time eating Cuban style cuisine. It was during Sunday Brunch. As I entered two authentic Cuban musicians were playing Cuban style music which immediately set the Cuban tone. I sat at bar since came alone but was immediately welcomed in a friendly manner by the bartender named Albert.... More

Went there on a double date. Great service. They were flexible with us moving from one table to another because of the draft. Good food, big portions. Overall good experience, good service as well.
