Nice little restaurant, frendly with nice cuban food. I enjoyed the food but the ceviche was not what I was expected. Otherwise the service is nice and dishes are very affordable.

Reasonably priced quick foods, nothing outstanding. Good stop for drinks and appetizers instead of full meal.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner with my husband. Staff were very friendly. Lots to choose from on the menu. I enjoyed a lovely braised beef dish. Prices are average, meal sizes are large. I would return.

I've only had a few meals here, but everything was delicious. Well prepared and fresh and well flavored. Small and cozy and comfortable and good Latin music playing. If I lived in the neighborhood I would go there every week.

I like this place. Excellent Cuban food and for the NY area pretty inexpensive. Good selection of beers, wines and cocktails. Ate here twice with no issues. Good staff. Nothing not to like.
