The food was very good. They had different menus depending on the time of day. They had a pre-show menu since it is close to a theater. The decorations, inside and out, are very colorful.

Enjoyed a very informative introduction to Cuban dining with a very knowledgeable manager. He told us all about the ingredients used in the food and the traditional aspects of Cuban dining. Enjoyed very much.
