“Home Cooking at it's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

With all the good Cuban restaurants in Miami it's hard to highligh one in particular , but Toto's Palce stands out. It is homecooking at it's best. Everything is made with great care and love. Don't miss out.

“Best kept secret in Miami!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Tuto's Place is family owned and a wonderful place to eat homemade cuban food. The prices are incredible, especially for the amount of food they serve. The flan dessert is homemade and the best in Miami. This is a must try!

“Your Must Try it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

From the outside it say's nothing (NADA) but once inside you understand why you showed up. Family run, Mother/Father/Son/Aunt they do all the cooking and service. Son is a Cuban hunter who prefers to go Hog hunting in Alabama then work. He is funny and gives great service. The folks their seem all to be regulars who go not only for the Great food but the overall atmosphere.

Try the Chicken Sandwich with everything on it. The shakes are great. The FLAN is homemade and I personally have never had one better.

Negatives, Parking is poor.

Enjoy

You want to eat great home made cuban food???? Tuto's Place is the place. Best BEST FLAN EVER... Best Pan Con Bistec, Bistec empanizado, ropa vieja, best frijoles (home made beans), in all...., best cuban food home made by mom you will ever eat. The portions are enormous, great atmosphere and CHEAP....If you want to experience good cuban food, i strongly suggest come to TUTO'S PLACE....you will definitely come back once you experience the food at TUTO'S PLACE.

“Country Music, Home grade Cuban flavor, and Small Town Feel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2011

This place is makes you feel like you transcended to s a small town in the countryside. You walk in and you would not have a clue how good the food is by the funny hillbilly bumper stickers plastered all over the wall and a huge wild boar head Tuti caught a while back...It is the typical place for local cubans to talk smack, enjoy a savory cuban dish like a Pan con Bistec or Pollo for lunch or a Bistec Empanizado which looks like a bed sheet of how big it is...we always have to share it! The rice & beans well just like my grandma's. Definitely a place for Bourdain to try...Versailles and Carreta have nothing on Tuto! They take only cash and it is truly a Mom & Pop place. Tuto is in his 80's and still working the place! Tuti is keeping it just as it is!
