The food is authentic Cuban food. My dessert (bread pudding) it is a must. Love the ambiance, even the people who serve the tables dress typical cloths. Nerveless to say the Live music they play at this place is really good

“Great mojitos! but not at cheap price”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Came here with my friend because she recommended the mojitos. We all got the guava ones and they were DELICIOUS! However they are $10 each. We also got some apps (empanadas and ceviche) both were good. They had live entertainment on the night we went too which was fun. She was a great singer who made her way through the place and dang by each table. Great atmosphere. good apps and Great mojitos. Just make sure you come after payday. We ended up with $93 bill and we didn't even eat a meal.

“The cuban taste in Spanish Harlem”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

One of my favorites Cuban restaurants in the City( Far ahead of the second)...Very nice staff, specially the hostess...Food is really close to authentic Cuban Style(from appetizers to main courses)...The roasted pork and yucca con mojo is a must...The mojito; a WOW experience in this place ( especially in the hot and humid NY summer)..I'll come back again for sure...

“Great bar and dessert, short with the food”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Visited the place with some friends and enjoyed the drinks (great mojito and sangria), I also enjoyed the dessert tremendously. Great guava-infused bread pudding. Also the ambiance was nice with live music and a nice crowd. My food was real lacking. I ordered Pollo Enrollado that is chicken breast stuffed with ham. The chicken was dry, the ham was not that fresh and the whole plate lacked freshness. Presentation was Ok. The other people in the table ordered seafood and it was nice and fresh, but their chicken was a disaster.

“Only for Love”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Have you ever gone to a student production for the sole reason of supporting your child? I believe on rare occasions the show actually turns out surprisingly good but usually you need a stiff gin and tonic afterwards to get the thing out of your system. The latter case would apply to my visit yesterday of Amor Cubano. The atmosphere, service, a d live music were nice and friendly and the mojitos were spot on. We tried the classic and would have been content with sipping those 10 buck creations all night long. Generally the food lacked the flavor this Cuban native was seeking and longing for. The lechon asado was lightly flavored and had the consistentcy of overlooked tuna. It was not fall off the bone succulent and without its usual sour/salty flavor profile. The vaca frita was not overlooked and greasy and not infused sufficiently by the onion and garlic. The beans lacked viscosity and salt and or white wine. The yuca with mojo too lacked salt and garlic. But the maduros were plump and sweet and warm. However, one does not digest easily a $ 77 meal for two based on a fried plantain side dish! Generally, the food was timid, definity not a wow experience. Please get me that gin and tonic stat!
