This is a very unique restaurant. Cuban food at its best. I am a vegetarian and there are plenty of great dishes. Upstairs area has been preserved from the era when Al Capone ate there.

We had dinner on the patio. It's actually up several stairs to a hidden mountain area. Very unique! The Lulu's meal was awesome! It's a hidden treasure in Hot Springs! Go and Enjoy!

Great food and great service. This resturant is a bit pricey but worth it. We went in early evening and the place was still fairly quiet. Our server was very helpful and gave great recommendations! Don't go expecting Tex-Mex. The fare here is more Central or South America

I've eaten at Hot Springs, Fort Smith, and Fayetteville. They are all terrific! I love the Popeye burrito! The location in Hot Springs has a near outdoor patio with live music.

We visited this restaurant because it received an excellent rating in Trip Advisor. The review was spot on. Great ambience sitting on the back patio, outside, right up against the mountain. The food was excellent. The drinks were great! I'll be going back on my next visit to Hot Springs.

Food was good. Getting to the upstairs patio was interesting, but it was a great place to have lunch on a beautiful day. Food was good, wait staff couldn't have been nicer.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the food I ate here. I tried a little bit of everything and it was all so very tasty. This is not Mexican Food so if you're looking for that, it's not that. The Pollo Chuchaqui is divine - it's a chicken dish with an amazing sauce. The Sopicaldo Pollo is an Ecuadorian chicken soup and it... More

We enjoyed having margaritas on the patio at this restaurant. The staff was attentive and the food was great! It seems popular at night, and the atmosphere was enjoyable! I would definitely go back!
