“Bad experience”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Service was poor; we had to ask for orders multiple times. Drinks were very overpriced. The staff was rude when we complained.

“Mediocre food and poor service”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

First time I have been disappointed after going to a restaurant recommended by members on trip advisor. There is much better cuban available nearby. The waitress completely ignored us during our lunch despite that fact the place was not full. Everyone seemed to have a bit of an attitude. It took over 15 minutes to just get the check from a different waitress...nobody cares. The cuban food was nothing special and below pare for this part of south Florida. My wife's breaded fried steak was all breading and over cooked. Very disappointing. Go over the bridge to Hallandale for much better cuban.

“Great informal Cuban restaurant”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Located in a mall off 1A1 in Sunny Isles, this simple restaurant has delicious Cuban cuisine. We had the Fajita de Churra, with nice chunks of beef in a great sauce, and the Lechon Asado, some of the most delicious pork I've ever had. Both come with sides; we had sweet plantains and black beans. The chicken soup was less exciting. All very reasonably priced. Great service. Karaoke on Fridays, live salsa music on Saturdays.

“Good food, bad service”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Food was great, but not pleased with the service. We had to ask multiple times for items they had forgotten to bring out, and drinks were very unreasonably priced -especially considering there was not much alcohol in it.
