“Best Cuban Food”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The ugly: I do not think I would venture at night here the area is not the best. Lunch ok early dinner ok late night nope. The place does not look like much. The food is very good. The employees authentic. I would return. I did order the food to go no problem.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This was our first time eating Cuban food and it as great. The restaurant is in an Howard Johnson Hotel but it is very clean even though not it the best of areas. Don't let the location fool you. The restaurant is very clean and they have numerous Zagat awards hanging on the wall near the restrooms. All the food we got was excellent and the service was okay, but a little on the slow side. We will definitly return on our next trip to Vegas.

We both had the arroz con pollo (perfect !) with a side order of tostones - excellent, and huge portions. Wait staff very efficient and pleasant, great atmosphere and very reasonable prices. Truly a gem !

“GREAT Cuban food!!”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We went to Las Vegas to get our vows renewed and on the way to the ceremony, we noticed this restaurant. And we are so glad we did! We went to Florida Café the day before we were going back home and was, hands down, the best meal we had while in Las Vegas.

To start of we had the yuca frita (fried cassava) with this amazing dipping sauce and the chicken soup was on of the best we've ever had (except my mom's, of course). we also had the masitas de puerco (fried pork) which literally melted in your mouth as well as the ropa vieja (shredded beef) in a wonderful tomato sauce with black beans an rice that was cooked to perfection.

Although the food is spectacular, the best part about it is that is was truly authentic. A childhood friend's mom used to cook like this all the time and needless to say it brought back a lot of great memories.

The only reason we gave this place a "very good" rating as opposed to an "excellent" rating is that the service was way too slow. The front area was full, so we sat at an area off to the left side (we were only ones back there), and we were kind of forgotten for a little while because they were so busy upfront.

But, based on the phenomenal food, next time we are in town, we will deal with the service and have us another fantastic meal!!!
