The hotel staff recommended this restaurant and shuttled us both ways. I know that is not always the best plan but it worked this time. The cuban food was wonderful. Good flavor and good portions. The cocktails were great and there was an incredibly charming woman playing the piano. She was so good and very kind. Roast chicken was wonderful and moist, seafood selection very, very fresh. Would go again.

This is the most impressive Cuban restaurant I've ever experienced. The food is distinctive, far beyond what is normal for this style. And do not order an appetizer - main course serving sizes are huge. The service is also excellent - can't think of a better way to experience a relaxing and delicious dinner. Not at all expensive given the quality and quantity. And the Cuban-born pianist may be too influenced by Liberace for some tastes, but for me it seems fitting. Most of the other customers were Cuban-Americans, which tells you a lot.

This was recommended by our hotel concierge as a place where he grew up eating good Cuban food. He was right! Nice atmosphere, easy to get to...and amazing!!! food and service. Large portions so be prepared to take home leftovers. The fried pork chunks were wonderful and moist. The sweet potatoes were great and unusual - not yams like the U.S. Is used to. Great Mojito and highly ranked wines.

Charming atmosphere, convivial and lively. Staff friendly and charming. The dishes that the staff recommended were all delicious. I would sticking to the restaurant's classics. The fish soup is outstanding, as well as the Paellas and the churrasco. The mixed salad was underwhelming, but the wines which were recommended were pitch perfect.

This is one of Miami's oldest Cuban restaurants. Love the white table linens, the quiet atmosphere and the food, which is always very good and promptly served. Not a place "to see and be seen" but to "hear and be heard" by your friends as you converse and enjoy your food.
