“Best Croquetas!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The ham croquetas at this restaurant are incredible! We now live about 20 minutes away, but happily make the drive at least once a week for this treat. Their churrasco is also delicious! The drive thru is super convenient and allows you to quickly pick up a great meal to take home. Their breakfast menu is a great value. Rarely a wait to be seated. Great restaurant!

“Ask for LAZARO!!!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This place is awesome for Cuban food. Go after 6 PM from Monday through Saturday and ask for LAZARO! He's the BEST.

“Excellent Meal * Super Prices”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Take a look at the on line menu. This has to be one of the very best meals ever. I questioned the Morro. Wasn't sure what this was. The waitress brought not only a sample I did not expect, she brought a bowl full. You will not leave this restaurant hungry.
My husband had: Masas de Cerdo, Arroz, Frijoles Negros y Papas Fritas $9.49 (Pork Chunks, Rice, Black Beans and French Fries)
I had Chuletas de Cerdo a la Criolla, Arroz, Frijoles Negros y Papas Fritas. $9.79
(Pork Chops “Cuban Style”, Rice, Black Beans and French Fries)
Our meals did not come with fries but instead wonderful Cuban bread & butter and tostones cut round like chips & served with garlic butter. YUMMMM I want more!

Highly recommend and will return again. Clean, good service, prices & location, very friendly.

“Never Dissapoints”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

I can always count with Islas Canarias to have a delicious meal, well served, nice and attentive service and at a very reasonable price. Huge menu with enough options for everybody. Desserts are OK but their croquetas are great and their coffee delicious. Much better and consistent than La Carreta. A customer for over 10 years, love their Coral Way location.

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I went to Islas Canarias at Coral Way many times when living in Miami, and after many years living in Central Florida I always return to have my meals there when I am in town. The food still excellent, the prices still reasonable, and they have the best Vaca Frita with tostones ever, so congratulations for keeping the quality of our cuban food, and the friendly service.
