We have been going to Café Piquet for years and it seems to get better daily. I love their scrumptious Food and Welcoming Service. I have enjoyed the Moros, Plantains, Pork, Calamari, Salad, etc. The Flan, Tres Leches, and the Sangria are the best I have ever had.

I have visited many times and am never disappointed. The staff is so friendly and accomodating. The food is authentic Cuban through and through! Cafe Piquet is one of the few places we come to every single time we must travel to or through Houston.

I went there with some girlfriends and we all loved it! I have been several times before and was introducing them to it. No one disappointed- the food was delicious but I have to really compliment the service- it was outstanding! We will be back!

We had dinner here on Friday - March 4, 2016. It was our first visit here and we are very familiar with very good Cuban Food in Miami, Houston and New York City. This place is nice and simple, no fancy decorations and they are not needed. The food is what you should be visiting this establishment for and they... More

Good food, reasonably priced with pleasant service. Try the Cuban Tamale, the flavors are well balanced and delicious. The shrimp creole was very good with a perfect blend of shrimp, vegies, spices and rice. We will be back

Seven of us from work went....it had been 20+ years since I ventured across town. I had the masitias, black beans and rice, PLUS the large sampler. The food was outstanding and the service was far better than I thought since we were a rather large party. This location is worth the stop! It's casual dress, nice atmosphere and as... More

We first went to Cafe Piquet in the late 1990's and loved it several times we tried it. Over the years we stopped going - too far to drive now that Katy has so many good restaurants but I was in the area today and stopped in for a lunch at the bar. Great service, excellent food, and nice atmosphere.... More

Went for lunch. We ate a Rumba sampler. Alsoo had an empanada. Had 2 pork and one beef on the sampler. Also had boiled Yucca Which You Can have. Would like to have it more spicy. Atmosphere very nice. Would go back.

This is my favorite place to eat in Houston. If you're looking to eat traditional food from Cuba, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico this is definitely the place to go. They have everything from Ropa Vieja to Mofongo. And they also have the best "Cubano" sandwich in town. Don't get fooled by the area where it's located since it's not... More
