Took a good friend whose parents are from Cuba. She loved it and a big thumbs as her mom is too old to cook anymore. Genuine, and for real people. Don’t go here expecting some upscale foodie joint. Plastic chairs and small tables. But the food is great and prices are nice. I recommend the Arroz con Pollo with black... More

Stumbled upon this gem passing through Orange. We had the empaditas, black bean soup, and arroz con mariscos. Food was good, arrived quickly, and was served with a smile. The servings were also good sized and a good value.

We go here every time we eat at the Orange Circle. Very basic atmosphere. Large portions of basic Cuban food that is consistently good.

I came to Felix for the first time with friends. We met for dinner, and I loved the trendy, old school vibe. It's a lively Cuban restaurant, a bit cramped with tables close together, and kind of loud. But it was FABULOUS! Felt like one big happy family. Our waiter was great, a bit peppery (yes, the waiter) and he... More

Went with a friend on a rainy day and had their red snapper. Was served with a clear sauce, rice, plantains, black beans and plenty of bread. I can't say enough about how good their snapper is. I've had the salmon before which was very good but the snapper is great! A lot of other friends like their chicken dishes,... More

Felix's has been at the Circle for years. I have gone once a year and have not been that impressed. It is a great place to people watch. Desserts are ok.

Little drizzly but great day to visit the Orange circle and have breakfast at Felixs. We each ordered omelettes and split to sample I had shrimp and crab my friend had chorizo. Both excellent. And service was wonderful. Had been for lunch but not breakfast but proved to be just as good!

Family members descended on this restaurant for lunch and sampled, family style, the combination grill, Rabo (osso buco equivalent), and the swordfish. All very good and reminded me of home recipes. Topped with Cuban black coffee. Be careful, the portions are large.
