I am from Key West, FL, was married to a Cuban, and immersed in the Cuban culture for many years. I have cooked it, eaten it and loved it. Pambiche is a great example of the small Cuban restaurants found in Key West (the ones...More

We tried the empanadas, they were good, with the spinach and cheese falling a little flat - it could have used a bit more spice. The Vaca Frita was very good and satisfying. The Ajiaco was also very tasty, ask for the Moros instead of...More

Our visit did not live up to the web site and reviews. My Pollo Criollo was unremarkable and not much more than a roasted piece of chicken without character and interest. The rice and beans were - well - rice and beans. My table mates...More

Traditional Cuban food. Everything I have ever had here has been delicious. Great bar selections as well. Be sure to leave room for one of their incredible desserts.

The service is wonderful and friendly! And the food excellent! They have a few house made salsas/hot sauces that are good on anything. If you're in a hurry, just stop in to grab a dessert. YUMMMY!!!

I'm totally confused about this place unless it's just the Cuban rum that's attracting people. It's expensive and simply nothing unusually brilliant since the only flavors I noticed were chili peppers and grease (I had fried chicken)

Pambiche is a great Cuban restaurant. It's often busy, and there's a sign up wait list by the door. We came in around 8:30pm on a Thursday, and got seated in about 10 min. There seems to be more outdoor seating, than inside. But both...More

Visited Pambiche at the suggestion of a friend. I was a bit leery of traveling to a place where they don’t accept reservations as I prefer to always confirm a seating. We went early and there was no wait time. The inside seating is small...More
