Excellent food in all respects. The waitress was performing in a Herculean manner as the place was packed but we were amazed at her work and our food arrived with minimal wait and we loved it. Highly recommended.

A very small restaurant in Old Town but away most of the crowds with a Cuban themed menu serving breakfast and lunch items. Sandwiches are tasty and the service is friendly and good.

Friendly place away from the main touristy area of St Augustine. Its still in old town but not in the overly crowded area. Awesome traditional cuban food. If you are looking for authentic this is the place!

Stop by almost every Sunday after mass at Cathedral. Have never been disappointed. Been coming 4-5 years. Family business with great pride in its food & service.

Overpriced Cuban and absolutely the opposite of Cuban food! Ordered a chicken soup and it was canned soup with NO chicken and stale bread. Also ordered wraps and sandwiches and it's nothing like real Cuban food and it came with 5 French fries.
