Really enjoyed our lunch here today.
I had the short rib sandwich and my girlfriend had the Cubano.
Both were delish! Watch out for the mango habanero sauce- it’s got quite a kick to it. Yuca frites and the tostones had really good sauces on them.
Too full to do any dessert!
Quick service, good food - most enjoyable!

Cute interior. We were there for lunch and it wasn't busy but I imagine the noise level is high when the place fills up....lots of tile that doesn't absorb sound! Service was fine the day we were there but not what you'd call particularly attentive. Smallish menu with a few salads, sandwiches, sides and full main courses. We both had sandwiches with a side of fries. Both sandwiches were excellent....freshly made, top notch ingredients, flavourful. The fries were disappointing and shouldn't have been served. The entire order consisted of small pieces, almost crumbs. Too bad because the few large French fry pieces on the top were almost perfect. There are a few non alcoholic specialty drinks, very refreshing and compliment for the food. A beer would be good, too. Next time. Over all a very good lunch and not expensive.

My friend and I went here for lunch during our break. We got seated right away as it was starting to get busy. We both got the chicken medianoche and fries. The sandwich was really good! The interior of the place is super cute. Service could improve though.

Had a meal there on Saturday night. Think of a 50s diner with a Cuban twist. Our meal was very authentic..made us feel like we were back in Havana. Everyone else seemed to be enjoying their meals as well. As others have noted, the menu is limited, but that too is authentic!!

Nice cocktails, speedy service, very attentive staff. We'd go back.

Stopped in for a quick lunch on a Sunday afternoon, great reception in a beautiful Latino inspired Cubano restaurant. Very bright and airy, great music, simple menu with so very tasty dishes. Every dish we tried was amazing, loved my very unique Cuban Caesar.
We were in and out within a half hour and were so impressed with the experience. Its also across the street from Bang Bang which makes it even more enticing. Definitely need to come back real soon. Great salads and special sandwiches. It is very reasonable priced for the quality of food.
