Who is writing these reviews? We had lunch there last weekend and they actually served me a plate of fried batter! I ordered fried oysters as this is a good time of year for them. What they served was only the batter. There was not one single oyster there. When I told the waitress, she sent the manager over and... More

We had eaten at the owner's other restaurant previously so we were excited to try the original. It was great! Service was on point, food and wine was delicious, atmosphere is warm and inviting. We ordered many small plates and everything was very good- it is hidden in a shopping center but has been open for 17 years. When in... More

Wonderful food with a Cuban flavor. Deep fried while red snapper is the best. Sunday brunch is great. Only issue is the high noise level. No brewed ice tea or cappuccino.

Three of us ate on a Friday night, enjoyed the Rhumba Brother's music. Yuca encrusted sword, asked for it lightly cooked and it was perfect. Pork Bolongese was delicious and the fish tacos were great too. Had a crab Croqueta appetizer that was excellent too.

The food was good. I had the regular burger that is on sale on Tuesdays and we also had the Cuban sandwich with rice and beans. Everything came out nice looking and was very tasty. The bread and olive oil was very good. Loved it. I would give it 5 stars, but I thought it was a bit pricy for... More

Reservations were made and table was ready for 10. Service was great, attentive and on point. Now food review--I will say ok/good, not great. Supposed to be Spanish flavors, they were present, just not dominating. Appetizers are over priced by far--3 conch fritters for $15! They were tasty, but not worth $5 a piece. Fried olives way out of price... More

I first came here for a birthday dinner in 2011, and my mind was blown! I came back five years later, and the place is still as good. Everything is delicious. It's a good idea to reserve as the place is always packed.

My friend and I try to go about once a month. The menu turns over frequently. They pride themselves on local availability for their food. Henry and staff provide tremendous quality delivered in a very convivial style. Just wish they would take the paper off the tablecloths. A little hard to find in a shopping plaza but very worthwhile searching... More
