We liked the food. We ordered the chicken and rice and was told it would take one hour to prepare and it actually did take that long. The waitstaff was very busy and it was hard to get their attention. But the value was there.

Nestled in a nondiscript strip mall on the west side of Collins Avenue is this surprisingly good little Cuban restaurant. Not a lot of English is spoken but it doesn't matter. Good food at very reasonable prices.

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.
