Staff was EXTREMELY inattentive and disorganized. We had 2 different waitresses, and neither of them paid any attention to us! We waited 30 minutes to put in our drink order, another 15 to order, and received our food after being there 90 minutes (even though it was Wednesday, and we only ordered sandwiches!). Then we had to chase down 2 different staff members to get our bill.

The food came highly recommended by a local friend, so I was very disappointed when both of our meals were not very good.

Not a good way to spend 2 hours.

I love being surprised with yummy food when all I'm expecting is something filling and Habanos is a hidden treasure. Fresh fish, well seasoned, and served hot with mojo and maduros was something I'll stop for again.

We heard rumor this restaurant was good and decided to try it. We ordered a Cuban wrap and Palmetto steak. Both of us were completely satisfied.

We stopped in for lunch, and were very pleased. There was something on the menu for everyone, from Cuban and seafood to club sandwiches, burgers and pizza. The waitress was very friendly, and didn't mind explaining some of the Cuban items to the kids. While my husband couldn't get past the red color of the meat in his cuban burger, that didn't stop him from eating off of everyone else's plates. I had the Dolphin basket, and it was some of the best fish I have ever had. We also enjoyed sitting at the windows in back so that we could look out at the marina and ocean while we ate. A perfect last lunch in the keys.

Stopped in after a visit to Robbies. Great service, friendly and the cuban food was authentic. We loved the chicken stir fry with rice and beans. Good job, think the extra drive is worth it...
