This restaurant is the real deal when it comes to Latin food. Everything is authentic & made from scratch. The paella was the best I've ever had. We go there whenever we are in the area.

The food here is great! I have so far had the Steak Tacos and Salmon Tacos. The steak is tender and the taco and ingredients are always fresh. The lunch menu items do not take long to be brought out. I recently had the salmon tacos. They were great! I highly recommend eating here.

I expected the place to be Cuban as it has Cuban dishes but it's a mix of Spanish, Cuban and Mexican. The food tastes good but it's not as good as it could be. Perhaps if they stuck to either Cuban or Mexican it may be better. Overall one should try it to see if it suites your pallets. I... More

I've always passed this spot but never tried it till recently and I'm glad I did. I was surprised to see that it was actually a Cuban restaurant versus the typical tex-mex. I ordered fish tacos with salmon, yum! Best fish tacos I've had in a while, they give you two but they are very hearty. My husband had Arroz... More

Their Paella is amazing! I can't even remember when my first visit was all I know is that I have been back several times over since then. The paella I mentioned comes in a cast iron skillet keeping it warm. I love rice! And this dish is amazingly great.My last visit was ruined by some loud talker on a cell... More

I have been frequenting this place since I moved to Atlanta in 97'. Its inexpensive and the food is consistenly good. Its also very nice to your pockets. My favs are the fish tacos and seafood paella. Oh and the mango margarita on the rocks!

A local friend brought us here for burritos and we were not disappointed. I got a shrimp burrito and it was perfect. The salsa was way better than typical Mexian restaurant salsa (nice and chunky) and everything comes with rice and black beans! Our service was excellent as wel.

An unassuming restaurant that hooks you with the first bite! Chips, salsa and queso are nice. The "Latino" aka Cuban sandwich is amazing!! Black beans and rice are perfect! The paella looked delicious. We will come back!
