“The best spot for lunch...”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Had I found this sooner during my trip, I would have insisted on visiting again. I still think of this place sometimes when I crave grilled chicken. The restaurant offers a lovely, comfortable open air dining room and an opportunity to taste traditional Cuban food at its finest. Do not miss this one!

“good lunch spot”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

The chicken is fab! So moist and served with a wonderful gravy. Of course beans and rice too:-) We had a platter of appetizers that were fried, and very tasty. Potatoes, yam and something else unknown:-) Dessert was guava ice cream with caramel sauce. YUM! The only distraction was that the restaurant has the look and feel of Hawaii. Go here...you won't be disapointed.

“Open Air Eating, Great Chicken”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

This is a most pleasant restaurant with thatched roof and open sides.

Their chicken is outstanding, especially when served with black beans and rice.

Our group found the service excellent and friendly.

“nice setting an average food”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

This restaurant is quite large but offers average food. That is not to say it is bad, just nothing to write home about. Within a short walk from the restaurant are a number of embassies with great architecture.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Excellent food! The chicken was GREAT! Severed family style with rice & beans. Music entertainment was very good as well. In a very nice family neighborhood. This paladar knows how to do it.
