    Killer food and service. Really top notch as were the mojitos. You pay more for the location. I’m sure you could find a meal as great for 20% cheaper away from south beach. But if u want to walk to a great Cuban place it’s worth it

    The food was mediocre, but maybe I’m not accustomed to Cuban food. The pork was dry and the signature chicken was nothing to write home about. Their drinks were extremely sweet as well. I’m sure I will not return as there are a plethora of amazing restaurants nearby.

    why did you mark me as seated? i did not dine here: i made a breakfast reservation on open table, walked over from my hotel which took about 45 minutes, & when i arrived was told that the restaurant was not open & wouldn’t be for another hour. i explained that i made a reservation - but was just told the kitchen was not open. was not offered an apology or explanation. why do you take reservations if you are not going to be open?

    My wife and two kids went here and the food was very good but our service was very subpar. The Cuban sandwich was the best thing we ordered. It may be the best one I have ever had. The cheeseburger was good. The fried pork was ok, kinda dry and the black beans and rice were a little stale. Their signature sandwich was ok. If you go, definitely get the Cuban sandwich. It is worth it.

    For tourists: Not a great example of how tasty Cuban food can be. For locals: Service is where they really fall through. Intended to celebrate a birthday there with dinner, but their staff made it impossible to have a good time we were met with attitude from our waitress at every request. we left feeling disappointed and deflated.

    Overall extravagant experience. 5 star customer service and 5 star food. The best Cuban food I ever had. It literally had me dreaming about it. The waiter was so invested that you would think that he owned the restaurant. Great bang for the buck. Overall 5 out of 5 hands down. I will definitely be returning each and every time I come to Miami.

    We were a little nervous because of some bad reviews but.... they were SO WRONG! The food was excellent and the service was perfect. Beautiful little spot with nostalgic decor reminiscent of Cuba in the 50s. Worth it and then some. Right outside was a gentleman named "Frank Paban", a Cuban guitarist that will serenade you with old time Cuban love songs for $10. He's just a great person. Highly recommend it.

    Our waitress was not very attentive. She took our drinks, walk away without saying anything, took our food same as first time, never returned to see how we are doing or need anything else. Food came out one to an hour, it was luke warm to cold, food was average. Chicken plate with rice and beans, the menu described grilled to crispy. More like cold to non crispy. Shrimp cocktail more like store bought frozen shrimp bag with mayo. Overall, I would not recommend this place to anyone else.
