This was a great restaurant. Even though we didn't have a reservation, we were seated right away. I had the mango mojito and my husband had the passion mojito. They were both very good and a large glass compared to other restaurants. I had the...More

Always busy but good for a late lunch. While I liked the Picadillo lunch special with rice and beans, it looked like there might be an "assortment plate" that was even better and included the fritters. Nicely seasoned salad was a lunch starter. Decent white...More

Really enjoyed our Cuban/Latin food here. Crowded. Lively atmosphere. Had the arroz con pollo and churrasco, which were excellent. The skirt steak was very flavorful. Sides were tasty too. Definitely worth the trip. Friendly service.

While good reviews led us to the Cabana, we were disappointed with the uninspired meals. None of the dishes we sampled were truly unique. And they seem to have decided that abusing your senses by overdoing spices is the best path to diner's palates. Garlic...More
