Located in a strip mall on Collins Avenue, the main road parallel to the beach in North Miami Beach and Sunny Isles, this restaurant is a short crosswalk away from expensive beach hotels . It serves a variety of Cuban dishes, certainly of better quality than many of the hotels. The food arrived fresh and hot. The restaurnant was clean. The service was adequate. The athmosphere is so-so. The food itself, definitely cuban, but not exceptional. If you want a meal away from the hotels this restaurant is a good choice.

The staff is so nice!! By my second meal we were all chatting it up like old friends. I had the shrimp in garlic sauce and the tostones with yellow rice - really good!! I also had a fruit shake made with water and cafe con leche. All good. Mojitos are excellent. I went on a Sat night and they had a sweet cuban band and obvious older locals who danced (adorable) but if you are under the age of 40 this probely isn't your spot unless you are just there to eat and enjoy. (go to Mangos if you are young and want to party)

Four of went, not busy, great service, had fantastic mojoitos and a very good roasted pork and onions and the others had various sandwiches which got good to not exciting reviews. A good stop for a solid meal anytime.

great food for a fast coffee and empanadas, or a complete lunch with patacones and mojo, order to go or stay in

The food was great and felt like home. The shakes were great too and tasted authentic and made with care. I don't know who the chef was but it was clear that they like their job.
