We had a family of 6 come here on a Saturday at 5:30 pm. We were seated right away even though there were quite a few customers already there. The waiters were very polite and friendly. The menu had many choices of appetizers, chicken dishes, and fish dishes. We were given crushed toasted pieces of bread, warm with butter on... More

Excellent Cuban flavors. Authentic Cuban food all around. Very inexpensive. The wait staff are eager to serve. That's why I'm a regular.

Bathroom was in the basement where food was organized, beverages were stacked nicely, it was CLEAN. Bathroom was spacious and clean as well. Waiter... More

the best Cuban food I have ever had here in the borough of Queens. Better yet, NYC. I recently went on a trip to Cuba and this restaurant really set high expectations for me over there. Awesome flavors and soo much plates to choose from. You will not be disappointed, go!

The story behind the brothers who own the restaurant is amazing! This is like going to Havana without the airfare. My favorite dinner is the pork chops served with fresh onions and fried plantains. I have been all over the world and this place is in my top three favorite restaurants. The waiters still wear black jackets and the meals... More
