    I ordered the Pollo ala Cubana. It was outstanding. I gave it a four-star only because the chicken was skimpy. I would happily pay more for a more generous half-chicken. The wait staff was also exceptional. I will return.

    Great service, terrible food and drink. The food was not made fresh; it seemed pre-made/frozen and then microwaved. I wanted a mango daiguiri, but I asked if it was made with real mango and the waiter said no, it was a mix, so I ordered a red wine sangria, which was awful, with no fruit flavor and very bitter. That might have been a mix as well. I was hoping for a Cuban cuisine experience, but I got a fast food one.

    Went with friends. Everyone enjoyed their meal, whether it was steak or pork. Wait staff was super nice. We ate outside, so occasionally a car exhaust was unpleasant. Next time, I’d eat inside. The lunch specials were reasonable. Definitely will go back.

    The place is very small. They have drinks, but the menu for cocktails is very limited. The food was very good. My biggest complaint was that they began sweeping up the place in front of us while we were still eating. It's not like it was that late. Our reservation was for 7pm.

    From entrance to exit, the experience at VanVan was superb! Jamie was an excellent server making wonderful recommendations. Choices we may not have selected without her suggestion. All of the food was fantastic - from appetizers through dinner. The ambiance was pleasant with Cuban music at just the right volume level. We'll be going back to try other dishes.

    We continue to dine at Van Van every time we’re in Naples. Great value! The family’s pride comes through in the food & service. I had my favorites which consisted of Bistec de Cerdo with Moros & Fried Yuca along with a Mojito & Sangria. Everything was prepared with perfection.

    Began with croquettes which tasted like grocery frozen type. The palomilla steak was very dry and tasteless. The moros where also dry and a very small portion for typical Cuban meal. Will not return the prices for this meal was ridiculous $37
