We missed finding this place until the last day of our trip. Basic beans, rice, plantains and cafe con Leche was the best food we had all week...vegetarian friendly too and priced right.

A small little restaurant serving some very good Cuban food. Plenty of variety already prepared, so quick service. Most importantly, the staff here are very friendly. A real neighborhood feel to the place.
