“Private room intimate for group”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We were fortunate to have the rear private room because this is a noisy restaurant. Great food, slow service. I wanted to shout " groups want the drinks to keep coming quickly, don't you know that?" But the food was well worth it, interesting in presentation and tastes. Fun environment in the neighborhood.

“Best tuna I've ever had”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Me and my husbend visited this restaurant few months ago. I was soooo much enjoying their tuna chino-latino. What a wonderful flavours!!! I like sushis a lot and I can warmly recommend this tuna to every sushi lovers. Also service was great and you may eat outside or inside (felt more unformal outside). One of the best restaurants in SOBE in our opinion.

“Tapas are the way to go here.”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I have to rate the tapas and the sangria a 5. I especially liked the stuffed dates (superb), The entrees, however, are merely a three, hence the 4 stars. I had the shrimp entree on the main menu - it tasted like the shrimp creole that I make myself. That's not bad, but anything special. My dining companions had a pulled beef dish from the main menu, which was pretty good, and a pork dish that resembled osso bucco. It was a special recommended by the wait staff and was okay. Would definitely go again and chow down on only the tapas!

“Fantastic food! Best on Lincoln!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The food is amazing here! It's Cuban food with a gourmet twist and lovely presentation. I went here twice while I was visiting Miami. The empanadas are excellent. I had Ropa Vieja during one visit and salmon at another visit. Both dishes were excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you're on Lincoln. My only complaint is that the restaurant is very noisy and having a conversation is a little hard.

“Lovely Restaurant”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Lovely Cuban Restaurant. This was my first time eating Cuban food and it was just beautiful. A little expensive however very nice. Staff are a little unhappy it seems as they don't smile very often however if you ask a question they will help.
