I expected the place to be Cuban as it has Cuban dishes but it's a mix of Spanish, Cuban and Mexican. The food tastes good but it's not as good as it could be. Perhaps if they stuck to either Cuban or Mexican it may be better. Overall one should try it to see if it suites your pallets. I... More

I've always passed this spot but never tried it till recently and I'm glad I did. I was surprised to see that it was actually a Cuban restaurant versus the typical tex-mex. I ordered fish tacos with salmon, yum! Best fish tacos I've had in a while, they give you two but they are very hearty. My husband had Arroz... More

Their Paella is amazing! I can't even remember when my first visit was all I know is that I have been back several times over since then. The paella I mentioned comes in a cast iron skillet keeping it warm. I love rice! And this dish is amazingly great.My last visit was ruined by some loud talker on a cell... More

I have been frequenting this place since I moved to Atlanta in 97'. Its inexpensive and the food is consistenly good. Its also very nice to your pockets. My favs are the fish tacos and seafood paella. Oh and the mango margarita on the rocks!

A local friend brought us here for burritos and we were not disappointed. I got a shrimp burrito and it was perfect. The salsa was way better than typical Mexian restaurant salsa (nice and chunky) and everything comes with rice and black beans! Our service was excellent as wel.

An unassuming restaurant that hooks you with the first bite! Chips, salsa and queso are nice. The "Latino" aka Cuban sandwich is amazing!! Black beans and rice are perfect! The paella looked delicious. We will come back!

Ate at this restaurant because of the reviews. Wish we didn't! Walked in and was ignored. Didn't know to seat yourself and no-one offered what to do. Finally sat down and took forever to get salsa and chips. Everyone coming in after us got theirs. Ordered the seafood paella and the Arroz con pollo. The paella didn't have much flavor... More

I had to have the paella. Others had a variety of these special dishes. The tostones had a delicious spicy garlic dipping sauce. Could have eaten that with a spoon. The portions were larger than life but I managed to extract all the seafood from the paella. SO GOOD. Moderate prices. Friendly staff. Love eating on the roof

I get the same thing almost every time I go for the last 8 years. A couple of times I have ventured off into the fish salad, cuban sandwich and chicken tacos. But my favorite is salmon fish tacos. If I could make it at home I would. But they have some secret sauce in their that keeps me coming... More
