“Great place to try cuban food”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Thanks to Tripadvisor, as we probably never would have known about this restaurant without it. It was within short walking distance of our hotel and after reading the reviews we decided to give it a try. The reviews are right, this is a great little place, unassuming in appearance but with very good food. Service was quick and attentive. I tried the ropa vieja and really enjoyed it, and my wife had garlic shrimp. We would definitely go back here again.

“Don't see neighborhood places like this anymore”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

If you want to get away from the pricey places at hotels or on Duval St, this neighborhhood place is wonderful. Good selection of food at what you would call moderate prices compared to other places in Key West. Friendly atmosphere & great staff that can help you order for those unfamiliar with Cuban Food! A must for any visitor, Good place to take the family!

“Fantastic Cuban Food”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We ate at El Siboney twice on our last visit to Key West. The service in quick and courteous, the Sangria is amazing and they have very good Cuban food. It is one of our "must stop" restaurants every time we visit Key West.

“Best Cuban Food In Town”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

I love the food at Siboney, Siboney steak is my favorite, It is so flavorful. I also like the pork chunks. I have been eating at Siboney since it opened and would recommend it to anyone. The food is true Cuban Cuisine. The staff is friendly, and the value is excellent. If you love Cuban food or you would like to try it for the 1st time Siboney is the place to go.

“Pork or Beef?”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Know what you want before you go. The menu just kind of runs together and though I'm normally a beef person the pork was better. It had onions on top. You'll be tasting it the next day but it's worth it. Especially if your eating on a budget.
.....I can't be 100% sure but my husband had severe abdominal cramps after it (drinking water) being the only thing we didn't share the entire 24 hrs before.
