“The best empanadas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Order empanadas, a refreshing mojito and ropa Vieja. It's a great place to meet with friends or even a romantic dinner. My favorite restaurant in America I wish they had that here in Vegas .

“The only Cuban spot in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Great local atmosphere decorated like Havana, with a good selection of run and terrific fish entrees with plantains.

“Feisty little foods and drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

This place is in the middle of the block and it's easy to pass by without noticing it. But if you are around near dinner time you have to stop in for a drink (be exciting and try a house specialty and pass on the Chardonnay) and a meal that will wake up your taste buds. The food isn't necessarily spicy, but the flavors are excellent.

“something special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

This is a great little local place. If you travel to Palo Alto alone or with a group you get atmosphere, food and drinks that are great. Dinning room serves is nice, but I prefer to sit at the bar and have a mojito and tapas. Try the mussles, very unique with sour orange and soy, yum.
