“Tourist Cuban Food”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

I was not impressed, as I have had much better Cuban food in Miami at several Mom and Pop restaurants. I was there wi several people, so we ordered several dishes and shared. The Pollo Asado was a small chicken leg/thigh, not very well seasoned. The Vaca Frita was dried out, but seasoned well. The Paella was good, but the rice tasted like it came out of a box mix, and the Arroz Moro was very salty, and the beans were very over cooked. I would not return.

“Not bad, not great”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

It's alright for a quick fix. The seafood paella was pretty good, not the best, but overall very flavorful. The staples: vaca fritta - don't bother. The fritter appetizer platter is pretty good for sharing and getting a taste of everything - recommended for a table of 4 or more.

Real inexpensive Cuban food that is consistantly good. This review is for their brunch buffet that is all you can eat. Service is always good. A wonderful find. Have been going there for many years.

“Lunch Bunch”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Very nice lunch menu (till 4pm) with a buffet from 11 - 2 for 9.99, hard to beat. They make very good Sangria, too. This place is always busy for lunch and rightfully so.

“Good Cuban food”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Been going there for 30 years when it was just a small place-dinners were $5.99 complete! Fancier now-more expensive, but good! The lamb shank fabulous then and now!
