It was our first taste of Cuban food. Tasty, interesting seasoning, good but not great.
Excellent selection of rum and rum drinks. Friendly, engaging Cuban waiter.
The restaurant was on a pretty tacky block in South Beach, and looked like a hot spot for the younger (than us) crowd. Overall, we enjoyed it.

This was our first time in Miami and wanted to eat at a Cuban restaurant. The food was great, it was hard to choose what to get. The drinks were very good. The service was excellant. I can't wait for the opportunity to go back and try some of the other choices.

We went to this restaurant as our hotel recommended it. It was lively and crowded, so we were fortunate to get a place without reservation. We had a mojito to start with which was average. I ordered the grilled chicken which was really good. Overall good experience and would recommend this.

I chose an outside table with a great " people watching " view. Hostess was helpful and waiter was great. Excellent Cuban food including dessert. Worth the 20 minute drive from my downtown hotel. Highly recommend this local favorite.

We headed down to Miami Beach from Palm Beach County to attend the car show, and thought we'd go for some authentic Cuban food.
Gabe, our waiter, was great. We all felt bad saying no when he offered something. The Cuban sandwich was very good, but not the best I've ever had. And for $12.50 (no side included unless you count the potato sticks) it's certainly not a bargain. The steak sandwich, café con leches and plantains were also very good.
When the bill came for our party of five, it included a 15% gratuity, a 3 % service charge and a place to leave an additional tip. So you have a gratuity, service charge and tip all on the same bill! I hope Gabe got all three "tips".
