“Good food, good service, ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Had lunch there during a recent trip (April, 2012). I happened to be in the neighborhood and met someone since the place was convenient. Cannot believe that in all my trips to Mia/Hialeah had not tried this place, thinking that it was higher than average..well, it is in quality and service, not your Mom and Pop restaurant and the prices are not much higher. Twists on Cuban cuisines that other restaurants may not be willing to try since it is always safer to stay with the familiar. Leisuredly lunch, attentive service. Had the sopa de platanos followed by stuffed plantain wiht cheese. No room for desert, although the selection of flans was tempting. Recommended.

“Good Cuban food with a flair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Delicious Cuban specialties with authentic flavor. Reasonable prices and attentive service make this a very desirable stop. Located behind a large mall.

Just now finished our delicious lunch! Had pork & onions,,Moros ( rice & black beans cooked together.Yum!) & plantains! ( best plantains ever! Better than in Cuba!) about $9.00
Better if you speak Spanish....but the menu is self explanatory.The chicken soup looked great too.

The food here is good and plentiful. Seriously, the servings are large. The service is what sets it apart, however. Lightning fast!

If you are in a hurry - EAT HERE

A good family restaurant for cuban specialties. Very good service and reasonable pricing. A kid-friendly atmosphere. Loved the fried plantain-best ever.
