You can't beat El Siboney. Family dining with good service, great food and the prices are reasonable.

This little Cuban restaurant is possibly the best value in Key West, excellent food, authentic atmosphere and good prices.

The concierge where we were staying recommended El Siboney if you wanted real Cuban food, not the touristy type. It's off the beaten path, a bit of a walk (or bike ride or drive), but well worth it. We went for lunch (you might want to arrive a bit before noon, it got crowded very quickly) and had a Cuban... More

Plenty of Cuban inspired food for a fair price. Ordered meatballs and mashed potatoes. I didn't get the fried bananas as a side dish and I immediately regretted that decision when I saw my friend's plate.

My husband and I recently visited El Siboney again and both had the shrimp with yellow rice and black beans. This is a great value on the island and delicious Cuban style food. We love eating here because there are so many nationalities and languages represented, but everyone is there for terrific Cuban food. The staff is friendly and moves... More

Outstanding Cuban food. No waiting but don't be fooled. Friendly efficient staff. Restaurant is hidden a neighborhood so don't panic. It's worth it.

The gift store employee at the Dry Tortugas recommended this restaurant and it was so authentic and delicious. There was a small wait, but the staff was super efficient in turning tables. We had the Vaca Frita (YUM!) and the pork with tamal. Kids had cuban sandwiches. I would go back again and again. The sangria was great too!

My wife and I always search out local restaurants when we travel, and stay away from the "chains" whenever possible. El Siboney is a family owned place serving really good Cuban food along with other choices for those who prefer burgers and the like. Prices are very reasonable, as evidenced that lots of locals eat here. We ate there two... More

Tasty food and great service! My son is a chef in the northwest so if I say the food is good, trust me!
