    Lively place! Great Cuban food, friendly and excellent service. We ate indoors in the main room in order to experience the live music which was excellent and a lot of fun. Excellent value for price paid

    Food was good. Cuban was a bit salty but still delicious. Our issue was with the seating hostess and then the manager or whoever she had come over. Had a reservation from OpenTable at 9:15pm. We showed up at 9:10pm. I went to the podium and let her know we were here. She looked surprised and said one moment. This manager or whoever he was rudely asked when our time was and then wanted proof of the reservation. Shouldn't they know?! Why would I lie? The restaurant was 3/4 full so there were plenty of tables available. Felt we were being profiled cause we were 5 white guys wanting dinner on a Friday night. Then server at the end of the meal asked if were ready for the check and we asked to split it a couple of ways. She was disgusted and said "I wish you would have told me that earlier". She was back within minutes with the 3 checks. Hmmm..that difficult in today's day & age. The 20% guaranteed gratuity in Miami is ridiculous! I'm a good tipper but if it's guaranteed they really don't need to do anything to treat you right. Be careful. We've been to the one near the mall location and it was awesome. Love the food....the service could have been better. Also mentioned on OpenTable that we were celebrating 2 birthdays......that wasn't even recognized. Why bother asking then.

    Wonderful meal! Their house chicken dish is amazing - I usually don't eat chicken skin unless it's crispy, but I ate every bit of it! The sauce is piquant and flavorful. All in all, a very, very good meal and just the right amount of "energetic" ambiance. After all, it's in South Beach!!!!

    Be careful. 20% is charged as service to the check. It’s somewhere written in the menu. They tend to verbally review the order with you and suggest where you would need to add the tip, instead of giving you a physical check to check against. Bad Havana 1957, that’s too sneaky. Cuidado. Te incluyen el 20% de propina/ servicios en la cuenta. Esta indicado en algun sitio en el menu. Tienden a repasar contigo la cuenta verbalmente sin darte un recibo fisico para que chequees cada cargo, y luego sugieren donde debes dejar la propina. Mal Havana, 1957, eso es muy feo.

    Great place to have cocktails, have dinner and people watch (sidewalk seating). I had the garlic shrimp and the passion fruit mojito. My husband had the classic Cuban sandwich and mojito. Both portions were a good size and were flavorful. Our server was attentive without being overbearing. The only thing that annoyed us was the automatic 20% gratuity that was added to the bill. We are generous tippers and probably would have tipped as much if not more. I guess everyone doesn't and that's why it's automatically added.
