What better US city to eat real Cuban food than Miami? I was in town on business and this restaurant was close to my hotel. Gave it a shot, and I'm glad I did. The service was quick, and the food was delicious! I had...More

It was little weird because we were the only customers in the restaurant. The service was good and our hostess explained what some of the dishes were. The portions were a good size and the food came out pretty quick. This was our first experience...More

We are here based on reviews from trip advisor. We were very disappointed in the food at this restaurant. The waitress / service was very good. Lots of places in the area to eat, you may want to look around before stopping here.

Wanted to grab a Cuban style breakfast, couldn't think of the place we wanted to go to and ended up here instead. It was absolutely delicious. There's a breakfast buffet that we chose and it didn't disappoint. The empanadas--especially the beef, were to die for.
