This restaurant is one of our family's favorite places in Miami even when we are not leaving in Miami.Last Saturday as part of christmas celebrations we when to Miami to visit our relatives and friends and we stopped at this restaurant ( like always) looking for a delicious food .Once again, the service was excellent, the food "yummy" and the price incredible.My daughters love the "croquetas" and the cuban sandwiches are the best. Our entire family highly recommend this restaurant to enjoy one of the best cuban and spanish food in south florida. Congratulations to the management and staff !!!

Islas Canarias was the BEST VALUE of my entire 8 day trip in South Florida. Yummy plantains,
tasty Yuca Frita en Salsa de la Casa, delicious Ropa Vieja (shredded flank steak creole style - highly recommended), and perfectly cooked Masas de Cerdo (pork). Don't worry, they'll speak English if you can't speak Spanish...but go ahead and try, enjoy the experience. DO NOT let the surrounding neighborhoods discourage you from coming to this restaurant, there is plenty of parking in a well kept plaza. The outside of the restaurant is colorfully painted and the inside is a diner setting. Lots of seating, very clean. If you're not already a fan of Cuban food, you will be after dining here.

I love this restaurant, good Cuban food with a good price. The best "Tamal in Cazuela" (corn stew) in all Miami, and also the best croquetas. Is always full, meaning customers return to eat here.
