We enjoyed our meal at this Pointe Orlando restaurant. The atmosphere is the best and enhanced our experience. The food, while quite good, is somewhat overpriced, but you are also paying for atmosphere. The twilight dining special was the best deal--appetizer, entree and dessert for $25. Not sure if this is a daily special, but was a good deal for dinner on New Year's Eve. The mojitos were good, also, and the service was outstanding. For Cuban "fusion" food and atmosphere, you can't go wrong here, but expect to pay!

I am always a little leery of eating at places in shopping areas such as malls or retail outlets. However, the good reviews from TA convinced us to give this place a try. We wanted some good Cuban style food, and this place delivered on it. The atmosphere was great, very old-Cuba style feel with some nice music. The menu was pretty deep, with an impressive selection of mixed drinks and mojitos. The Mojito Classic was excellent, and the bread appetizer was good. I opted for the plantain chips and some empanadas while my spouse went with soup and a cuban sandwich. They were both excellent, and the option to have a mix of different empanadas was great so I could try different ones. The price was reasonable, and service great. Overall, a good Cuban-Fusion place in the resort area of Orlando.

Was informed up front by our waiter of menu not 100% Cuban rather modern Cuban. We were really looking forward to authentic empanadas, instead they were more traditional Puerto Rican made. The cuban sandwich and white rice with black beans is as close as it gets to Cuban food. Overall service was OK.

We grew up in south FL so really appreciate good Cuban food, and this restaurant's menu was excellent. Unfortunately, the food was overshadowed by the amateurish service. They clearly have a great chef; they need better management. The black bean soup was good but not special. However the ceviche was unique. And the empanada sampler was a highlight (the chicken with corn was my favorite). The arroz con pollo was among he best I've had and the BBQ ribs were delectable. The appetizer portion of ribs was in fact enough for a meal. On the down side, the salad with avocado came with no avocado, the pitcher of sangria was more ice than sangria, the side order of plantains never came, the waiters left used starter silverware on the table rather than bringing new utensils, the server failed to tell us of a special tasting menu, etc. Had they had their act together I'd rank them excellent, and hope this was a one-off evening, but heads up.

I was at this place during PowerGen's Networking Party and can't properly evaluate their service during a regular day. The place, food and music were just great. The place was crowded but the service we got was still good enough. I would like to visit this place again on my next trip to Orlando.
