We stopped at this small little restaurant looking for a quick lunch. We found the Cuban sandwich to be outstanding along with black beans on the side.
We lucked up and set next to the nicest couple from Miami and chatted it up for a long time. We will definitely stop here again.

There were three of us and we called ahead and placed our orders. We ordered Grilled Mahi Mahi that came with Congri which is black beans cooked in the rice and Sweet plantains. The second order was Ropa Vieja (shredded beef with a wonderful sauce, green and red peppers) with white rice and black beans. We also had two orders of green fried plantains or Tostones. Of course for dessert we had three LARGE pieces of Flan which is a caramel custard and reminded me of my mother's own recipe. All of this food for $31.00! Unbelievable. We have enough left for each one of us to have another full meal tomorrow. If you like Cuban food and want a great deal please visit La Nina. It is a small little place and we did not eat inside because of how small it is but as we know sometimes the little "dives" have the best food. EXCELLENT!!! VIVA CUBA!!

Loved this little restaurant in Marathon. Mother and daughter cook and wait tables . Cafe con leche and flan were the best I have ever had. Cuban sandwich with pressed bread. Hope to go back again.

Excellent home-cooked Cuban food at very reasonable prices. Most of their business is take-out serving locals but there are a few tables inside. Garlic shrimp, grilled chicken, fresh fish, sweet plantains were among our favorites, with perfect espressos to end our meal. Good for families. Can be hard to miss on side of road - don't be put off by the unassuming exterior.

We saw this on Tripadvisor. Otherwise we would have probably never stopped here. Very rough looking from outside. Food was delicious. Prices more than reasonable. They have a few tables and we ate inside. Staff were very friendly. It seemed to be a family affair. While were eating, I noticed that their takeout window was busy. Mostly locals.
