Reasonably priced, amazing and hardy food with ok service. There used to be 5 or 6 places like this in Key West. Siboney is the only one left. The chicken soup is great for a late breakfast. If the dining room is full, sit at the counter. You'll be between a millionaire and a commercial fisherman and won't be able... More

Excellent Cuban food with an informal atmosphere. This place is very popular so be prepared to take a number and wait if you arrive at peak times. Service was friendly, but the waiters are too busy to be very attentive nor timely. Payment is at the cash register as you leave and in our case that took over 10 minutes... More

This place was amazing! Don't miss this restaurant if you are in Key West. Food was great- only regret was being so full and not trying dessert.... the empanadas were the best we have had. It was so good we went twice! Staff were friendly and the portions were huge......

Had dinner here while in Key West. A little out of the way from Duval Street but well worth the effort to find them. Excellent food and great prices. Much better than any of the restaurants we tried on Duvall street.

Good basic Cuban food. Family run for years. Very fair prices and large portions. Off the beaten path but worth finding if you want good, not fancy, food.

If you want authentic Cuban Cuisine that is delicious this is the place for you. The pork was soooo tender and the flavor was absolutely amazing! I would strongly recommend the pork with rice and beans.

Can't review the Paella because they won't make just one pan for two people, you have to order two pans and my husband and I couldn't possibly eat two pans of paella. Staff member was very short and curt when we enquired.

We had a large group (12 people) but were seated quickly and the service was attentive and helpful. Good beer selection and the sangria got high marks. The Cuban Mix sandwich was very good. Fantastic Cuban bread and all of the ingredients were fresh and tasty. The waiter said that the sandwich was pressed, but the cheese wasn't melted and... More

We went here on recommendation of a friend who had previously visited and it didn't disappoint. You might not find this place as it's a bit off the beaten path, but do yourself a favor and find it and go! The food is amazing. Large portions (share a dish easily) and service was good. I can't get the flavors out... More

During a recent trip to Key West, the wife and I walked to Siboney's, partly due to proximity and partly due to its strong rating on Trip Advisor. As warned, it was pretty busy, but we got seated fairly quickly. The wait staff was brisk and efficient.. felt rushed a bit.. but got to our orders quickly and got us... More

Well it certainly seems like you didn't catch us at our best, Stuart. We've earned our great ratings by having some of the most delicious Cuban food in Key West, so although you weren't quite the biggest fan of our flavors this time around, we hope to get a second chance to impress you someday. Perhaps something else on our... More
