“A nice place to get introduced to Cuban food”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

When you enter this restaurant, you do not feel like being in Cuba: of course you are in Sunny Isle. That being said, this is a good place to be: the food is tasty ( somewhat salty though), the place is clean ans service is good. One big caveat: the place allows clients to smoke inside the restaurant even id it is not suppose to.

“Great Food and Good Service”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This was our first time trying Cuban food so I'm unable to compare, however the food was excellent. The food is authentic, and the service is good. Our first waiter only spoke Spanish so he was unable to assist us. But that was not an issue, as we are in south Florida eating at a Cuban restaurant I would expect to have this situation. This just helps authenticate the food and the experience. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly, and even our first waiter would often walk by and give us a thumbs up with a questioned look just to make sure were OK.

The food was excelant and the portions were very large yet the price was reasonable.

“Invisible”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We came for breakfast , ordered coffee at the window because no one came to the table. Waited 15 mins went to window again and asked for a menu and someone to take our order. Waited 20 mins went to window and asked again. In total we were there 40 mins no one every showed up and we left. We have been there several time and the service always sucks

“Excellent Cuban Food!!”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

I love to go to this place because they have a good service. The food they serve is mainly Cuban.
The Restaurant is clean and neat something I love to see when I go to eat outside. The Food tastes good and they serve you fast.
If you are around Sunny Isles or BalHarbour and feel hungry this could be one of your choices either Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner!.
