Stopped here for a bite, fancying some Cuban cuisine. The decor and ambience is quite Havana-ish, and the dishes promise that too. The Mojitos are fine, and the food is ok, but on the basis of this visit it could be far better. Will come back to give it another go.

I came here for a dinner with some business colleagues. The place was deserted, although it was a Monday night. The service was fine, the food was fine, the decor was pretty cool. All in all this was a pretty mediocre restaurant.

I went here with a party of 11. The waiter was pleasant. The food was very good. The fried red snapper was outrageous!!! The chicken entrees were good and the black and rice were outstanding. Mojtios were OK. The happy hour 2 for 1 drink deal was only avaiable at the bar. Great atmosphere and with live band. Limited seating... More

I had the ceviche based on a recommendation here and it was nothing special. Edible but not memorable. There's much better in downtown. Service was ok. Atmosphere is great. Not sure how I feel about their mandatory tip. You don't have an option to remove it.

I was served by a really nice girl who was really enthusiastic. Told her I was unsure what to get and she recommended a great dish (specialty... More

Be careful they charge you automatically 15% gratuity and 3% service changed, when they service is horrible!

We were staying at a nearby hotel and decided on this place by a friend's recommendation. It was an early Sunday brunch meal but it wasn't terribly crowded. Immediately loved the decorations, funny graffiti on the wall and music playing in the background. We started off with a lovely citrus mojito served with fresh mint leaves and sugar cane. Our...
