Went here for an early lunch with the family. Very kid friendly fast service with good gluten free options. The Cubano was good but not excellent. The prices were very good as was the service. Good coffee and my wife says the monitors are good too. Al fresco dining option available.

Okay Cuban food but nothing special. Roast pork dry and overcooked. Most disappointing was cafe con leche which really a cappuccino. Not the real deal.

We had an excellent lunch here.. The servings were ample and tasty. The waiter was professional and attentive. The white linen on the tables added since ambiance.

Huevos rancheros were plain eggs floating in a plate of salsa. I had to order a side of black beans for this meal to even hint of Cuban food. Good coffee. Polite staff. Clean bathroom.

While staying in Sunny Isles we were taken to El Tropico Cuban Cuisine. Most of us had the steak and eggs. Skirt steak with 2 eggs, hash browns and Cuban toast. Delicious with right in price.

This was our attempt to find more or less authentic Cuban restaurant around Trump Resort. And this was not it. Found really cool places instead in Little Havana and Latin Quarter. A nice, chilled place with a tasty food, seating outside and polite and courteous waiters. But feels all like a concrete canteen facing a busy plaza. Please do not... More

Great, casual dining experience. Friendly staff. Fresh fish in special house sauce was fantastic. Yuca in garlic sauce worth a try. Empanada sampler (beef, chicken and ham) a must order. Great Cuban fare in laid back atmosphere. Wife's mojito was perfect.
