Today was our second visit here. Food is excellent. We had grouper and steak. The plantains are perfect. Rice and beans are spot on. This is great with friends or just as a couple.

We had lunch here and were very pleased with the selection, the food, and the service. Great menu, with many choices, all of which seemed to be authentic Cuban style cooking. The fried pork chunks were tasty and gave a generous portion.
