“Put This Restaurant on Your Go To List”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Set in a lovely art deco building, we had a nice evening here. Our group of 6 ordered varied appetizers for the table and they were all good. Some of the portions were small but everyone enjoyed their meal.

“Fabulous Cuban Food - Great Prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Las Olas Cafe has some of the best, authentic Cuban food in Miami. It is cafeteria style but the food is fabulous and the prices are great. When in Miami, this restaurant is a must.

“Some of the best food in Miami, and at a great price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

Went to the cafe in July of 2012 - what a treat! Probably the best Cuban food I've ever had in Miami, and especially for the money it was. We stayed right on Collins in South Beach, so it was even better it was only a few blocks away and didn't need a car ride for us.

The place is small and setup like a cafeteria; you just tell them what you want. My husband and I both had a plate each consisting of a meat, rice and beans, and plantains. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious (I had the albondigas and he had fried fish). Add a big bottle of water to share and total price was $19.00! How can you beat that in South Beach?

There is also a window where you can order outside from the street. One of us spoke Spanish so that really helped there. I can't recommend this place enough; great Cuban food! Please Note this place is CASH ONLY.

“Best Cuban in Miami”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

Go up to the window outside, or enter the restaurant. Try a sandwich or an Empanada. Words can't describe how great everything is about this cafe. As far as good Cuban goes, this takes the cake.
