I have been coming here since I was a child! I love to eat the viste empanizado or la vaca frita! It's more of a family setting and portions are very large so you can share if your not too hungry.

In our last visit we noticed food taste had change, arroz moro and rabo encendido taste is not the same, tamales were cold, service is great our waitress very friendly . Maybe it was a bad kitchen night.

There are daily specials to choose from and the standard Cuban food for the traditionalist. They do have the best Cuban sandwich in town. Finish it off with a little shot of espresso and a flan, can't go wrong.
