If you haven't dined in Cuba, then you cannot objectively review Felix's. The cuisine at Felix's is exceptional and rivals any restaurant in Cuba. The menu is extensive with desert included in many of the moderately priced meals.

Having been to Cuba, the food at Felix is authentically Cuban. You must have the ropa vieja. The slow cooked shredded beef dish is accompanied by white rice, black beans and sweet plantains. The owners of Felix are as authentically Cuban as the food and...More

The Red Snapper Caribbean Style was a perfect lunch. The fist was flavorful and light. I would have preferred a small salad instead of the rice and beans but didn't even ask. The beans didn't have much flavor but the rice was nice and light.

We stopped for a snack and sat outside. The empanadas were warm and tasty. The spicy salsa served on the side was an excellent accompaniment. The roasted plantains were delicious.

The food was pretty much tasteless. Cold beans, gummy rice and meat that tasted like it was leftovers. Greasy fried bananas.

I just went there last night with friends and had the paella. It was good; however, it lacked the saffron flavor. It was plenty. The fish soup was delicious. I also had a little bit of ox tail which was great, and some chicken.

Small restaurant with more tables outside than in. You will love the aromas when you walk in. Tables pushed together with what I took to be families, talking and laughing-having fun. Staff helped me with ordering. Wonderfully flavored food, my best since leaving south Florida....More

Excellent food and excellent service. For lunch, I had the Felix sandwich. The shredded beef was cooked perfectly, and the onions and spices complimented and enhanced the flavor without overwhelming the meat. The beans were also terrific.The service was first rate -- the wait staff...More
