A taste of Cuba in your own backyard. Mostly locals, but this is a good sign. Have eaten here several times and never disappointed. Personally, I like the roasted pulled pork, but have enjoyed many of their special dishes. Arco Iris offers casual dining (tables & booths), good food & service, at a reasonable price. Don't forget the flan dessert. Hope this is helpful.

Great cuban restaurant -- I enjoyed all the food as well as my beverages and coffee... Definitely more of a local place, so exactly the type of place I was looking for

Definitely recommend visiting if you are in the area...

If you are in Tampa Bay Area and want to go where the locals go for Cuban food....this is the place. Great masas the puerco and fricase de pollo! Love everything they cook and prices are great.

This restaurant was recommended by a co-worker of my husbands as a wonderful mom and pop place. Food was just awful. I do not care if it is cheap, I care if it taste good. It tasted terrible. I have had Cuban food in other places and have gone back again and again. I would never go there again.

Probably the best Cuban food in Tampa. Located in west Tampa. Lots of daily specials with authentic Cuban recipes. Our family loves to eat here. Servings are large and can be shared
