“Trendy Mix of Modern and Traditional Cuban Cuisine”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Overall, this is an excellent, upscale cuban dining experience.

I will say, there are more authentic cuban places in the area (although they are dwindling), but you have to keep in mind, this is meant to be a meld of modern and traditional cuban, and its meant to compete with other places on Atlantic Ave.

Overall, we were not disappointed. As other have said, the basics; Cuban Sandwiches, Plantains, and other Cuban staples are pretty solid.

Also, you we had the buffet recently, and it was pretty good. Definitely a good value.

“had better elsewhere”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is not authentic cuban food. Period. The ambience is nice and the drinks very good, however if you have ever had authentic cuban food you will likely be very disappointed.

What an amazing bartender Gio is!
This place was one of my stops on my 21st birthday yesterday, and he really made it memorable. Will return most definitely!

“Always Dependable Cuban Food”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

My favorite is the paella here. The fried plaintains are excellent. Nice variety of drinks and good service. Superb Cuban black bean soup. Good sangria. About the best Cuban restaurant that I've tried in Palm Beach County. Reasonable prices
