“April 2013 .... Excellent Stuff”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This restaurant has kind of been an a small roller coaster. Up and down and a little twist and turn here and there. Lately, it's been nothing short of excellent. Tasty food at moderate prices. They have some of the best roast pork and offer a Cuban family favorite of mine, Boliche. A chirros sausage stuffed eye of round that is often overlooked. I get the feeling Cafe' Masaryktown is nearly ready to step it up, from "Cafe'" to "Cuisine". Their quality of food rivals many of the Tampa cuisines charging far more. It's real Cuban bread and home style cuban fare at a fair price. What more could you ask for ? From the Ybor style Cuban to the flan to the cafe con'leche .....Totally Yummy!

“Best Cuban cuisine north of Miami”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Yes, I know Tampa has some awesome Cuban cafes but this little gem in the boonies is worth the drive. Roast pork, grilled fish, ropa vieja, picadillo,Cuban sandwich.... no matter what you order you won't be disappointed! And definitely save room for the guave cheesecake or the guava and cream cheese empanada. The cafe con leche is the best!

“Wish it would have been better”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

The reviews were almost all good, so why not? arrived a few minutes before noon and the cafe was packed with a wait when we left at 1:00. No atmosphere and it was LOUD, service was ok. Hot buttered Cuban bread was brought to the table and it was wonderful, as we'll as my large bowl of red bean soup. My half Cuban sandwich was cold, cold center, cold bread-very disappointing. Sent it back to be warmed, better, but sadly the Cuban that I had at Beef O Brady's was better. My friend ordered a fish sandwich, it was huge hot and served on an egg bread, but she did not care for it at all. Grease was dripping off the fish. We will not be returning.

“Best Cuban north of Ybor City”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

When you see that sign, they are talking about sandwiches, and these are the best with real Cuban bread, and pressed. This is a family owned restaurant with delicious fresh home cooking and good prices. Don't miss the guava cheesecake. Vegetarian options are also available. The building is also historic, built in 1925 by Czech people, hence the name Masaryk. It is on hwy 41 north of Tampa. I rate it 5 stars for authenticity and delicious food.

“Still Good”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Second visit a year or so later, same good food. This is in an old building but the food is fresh, portions are fair and the prices are very fair. The only bad review appears to be from somebody who did not read the big sign stating that this is not a fast food site.
