“Delightful Cuban Food!!!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Nice atmosphere, terrific food and service. We had Red Snapper ceviche, Paella and strip bass - very tasty and full of flavor! Desert was a delicious way to end the evening, Mango Flan was the best we've had!

We have visited this nice restaurant in june 2012 and we were afraid cause we are a little diffident on restaurants inside hotels. ... But this was absolutely great! Food fusion-latin inspired full of taste and lots of choices.... Sunday we also enjoyed free sangria that was awsome!

This restaurant is in the Excelsior Hotel on the upper west side. I didn't research in advance. It was in our hotel and it was recommended by 3 outside sources. It was delicious! It was Latin-type food - maybe Cuban. So many choices! I ended up going with their special of the evening and loved it. They have a number of Sangria offerings. Our groups tried 2 of the white varieties and loved their fruity combinations. The staff was very friendly.

“Best Experience in town! ”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

A must visit restaurant. Service is excellent and food is exquisite. My recommendation is the calamari and paella. Don't forget the mojito or sangria. Best in New York.
