“Outstanding Cuban Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

The traditional Cuban steak (Palomilla) encebollado or tender pork or tasty chuletas con arroz blanco, maduros, y frijoles negros o rojos all served with an excellent fresh lettuce and tomato salad sprinkled with string beans (habichuelas verdes) and seasoned with the house dressing (aderezo) along with warm Cuban bread--and topped off with delicious flan--are mouth-watering, scrumptious dinner and dessert selections the Dominican family owners pridefully serve seven days a week. Though I prefer Sunday afternoons. Other typical menu selections are popular, too. But the above mentioned are my favorites. Tough to find reliable Cuban eateries in Central Florida (outside of Kissimmee), but this is the best in the Casselberry, Altamonte Springs, Lake Mary area.

“One of the best Cuban restaurants North of Hialeah.”

Excellent food at a reasonable price. Service to match. A very nice place for both lunch and dinner. Family run and the pride shows. Highly recommend.

“Wonderful Cuban Dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

When I used to work in Casselberry I discovered this fantastic Cuban restaurant. I have eaten here at least ten times. If you just want some good 'ol Cuban food, then this is the place to go...especially considering there is not much for authentic food in the area.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Great food in a nice family restaurant! Great service. Wait staff explained the menu choices and recommended choices to compensate for my food allergies. Food was fresh and hot. The chorizo queso appetizer was unusual and very flavorful.

“Pretty good Latin food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I ate came here for lunch on a week day. My wife had been here before with her Mom and Aunt and she loved it. She wanted me to check it out. Well, she was right. We had a Mofongo, rice, red beans, beef steak and caldo Gallego. Everything tasted great. This appears to be a family run restaurant because we only saw one waitress serving about 5-6 tables. As a result, service was a bit slow. However, the friendliness of the staff and good food more than compensated for it. We'll be back!
