“Good Cuban cuisine, well served in a pleasing environment”

Restaurant details
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Clewiston is a blue collar sugar mill town that has few decent restaurants. The Florida Cafe appears to be in a rehabed gas station on the east side of town on the main drag. I was delightfully surprised at the tasteful decor after almost not being able to find the restaurant due to inadequate signage. Inside is clean, quiet and well lighted, with Caribbean music and yep, a Cuban waiter!
The menu covered the usual fare of pork, beef, chicken and seafood a la Havana. My friend and I had roast pork, and grouper. The food was tasteful, prepared well, and presented well. The grouper turned out to be flounder, but it was quite good. Based on my experiences at other Clewiston restaurants, this one is well worth a visit. Re

We also found the owner very helpful and friendly .We were given samples of Cuban soup which was very tasty ,the portions are quite large so after the starter we had to share we could not finish our main course,we are from the U/K and not accustomed to USA portions.

Right from the moment we arrived the owner made us welcome, seated us and talked us through the menu giving us the opportunity to ask his advice, we shared a sampler starter that really put us in the mood for the evening. To our surprise we were then offered a complimentary soup course which was excellent.

Our chosen main courses were fantastic the seafood stuffed red snapper was cooked to perfection, and the roast pork ordered by my father was also superb.

The service was better than any we have received whilst travelling in the US, in fact the combination of the waiter and owner was five star.

The last surprise of the night was an excellent dessert to share, a wonderful meal, great service in a spotless establishment.
