Over Priced!!! Portions are small but the price of an entree. Taste is far away from what they are trying to imitate!!! Service is ok but the drinks (cocktails) did not carry alcohol at all...

The menu offers many of the established selections one would
hope to discover in a "Cuban" restaurant,only problem is that there far from authenic.Seem more of a Calf/Mex interpretation
of Cuban cuisine(yes,cuisine).Cuban food has really evolved
over the last 40 years(just,visit Miami).My advice:find a really
good Cuban chef and put him/her to work in the kitchen! Or
just visit a Mexican restaurant and find something authentic there!
