“Extremely yummy food, extremely great service!”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

After finding this place on tripadvisor we decided to try it out to see how good the mojitos really were, and we were greatly surprised!

The place was pleasantly full when we got there, probably because it was the middle of Happy Hour, but we quickly were seated and ordered our drinks. The mojitos were very good as well, a right amount of sweetness and tartness.

The menu is simple, very decently priced and (from what we tried) VERY delicious. We had the empanadas and chicken crisps as a starter (the spicy sauce that accompanied them was great!) and we had the pork sandwiches and a hawaiian burger for mains. Everything was great! The pork was nicely cook, the burger was juicy, and the prices were very good!

What really made the place though, was the service! Our server was extremely fast and knowledgeable. He kept coming by every 5 minutes to make sure we were doing ok and had our drinks constantly topped up.

All in all a great place and will definitely come again!

“Great burgers and cocktails!”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Being quite fond of Cuba, having been there on holiday, we always make a beeline for Cuban places and try a mojito! The night we went, they were doing 2-for-1 on burgers so we tried them out. They were delicious - far better than the rubbish you usually get in Britain. Really good quality meat. For the price they were an absolute bargain.

The cocktails were also good and about as authentic as you can get outside Cuba. We sat outside and enjoyed the vibe, but inside looked good too. Service was excellent - quite friendly and efficient. Definitely a cool place to head to on Long Street, and the best we found really.

“Worth visiting, relaxing atmosphere, good service, good price”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

Cool place, excellent atmosphere, nice Cuban – Central American style decoration, good price and good food - especially Barbados style pork. Good place to dine before visiting clubs in the Long street – would recommend especially for the younger couples and older “hippies”.

The cocktails are great, and really cheap during happy hour.
The chilly poppers are amazing, and the clientele are funky.

What more could you ask for?
