“Good affordable Cuban food”
Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

This a a great place for Cuban food in the keys. We went on a Thursday night and it was packed. The waitresses were great. The portions were large. My husband had the mahi-mahi. It very fresh and tasty. I had the lobster creole. It was good, but a bit overpriced at $24 for a small lobster tail. Overall the prices of the entrees were reasonable I found the tostones to be a little greasy. I would definitely eat here agian.

“Clean, friendly service and good food”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Highly recommended! Local sea food, latin/Caribbean and American food. Something to make almost everybody happy. Nice marina location and situation near the Dead Animal Bar, good food-good times.

“surprisingly bad service, disappointing food”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

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.

“Cuban delight”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

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.

“Try everthing!”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

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.
