The food is not so bad, however isn't one of the most outstanding representation of cuban food. The place is very noisy inside (karaoke) but you could be able to handle all these inconveniences if at least the service was good. The waiters are lazy...More

Do not bother eating here. 1. Food is poor - cold and taste awful 2. Very Expensive 3. Service is bad and they have the nerve to charge 15% TIP automatically in your bill EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE

The place offers average food with horrible service. Wouldn’t recommend the restaurant, as it is not worth even trying. Watch out for the Big Bus meal special, because they will not honour it; I had a really bad experience with the staff.

We were looking for one spot during our Miami visit to experience a little Cuban food. After our cruise on the marina, we came here (more for convenience than for pre-planning), but was pleasantly surprised at how good our meals were. Our server, Mike, went...More

This is a 3 month old Cuban restaurant-free parking in the church parking lot next door-it is very stylish with South beach decor but with reasonable prices-my chicken was $11.99-it was overcooked and rubbery, but the atmosphere was great, and it had romantic booths. It is located on a corner in central Miami, in a business area.
