It was a small place with parking. Friendly staff and great food. The exterior needs some repairs but once you get inside it looks ok. The portions were big and was very fast service.

This place never disappoints. The food is good, the portions are generous, the atmosphere is lively and the prices are more than reasonable. They also have valet parking, though I choose to park on my own.

We drove by and stepped in. No regret : we had a wonderful time. The restaurant offers a very friendly atmosphere, typical food from Cuba, local residents having fun, large portions. A very nice stopover on our way to NYC.

Great drinks and love the garlic shrimp. There are 2 locations. This one is easier to park and not as hectic. The one on Blvd East is more scenic with the outdoor deck and cuter bar area
