“real cuban!!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

If you like Spanish food this is your place. It is small and a little out of the way but well worth it. The food is very authentic and well prepared. Soft drinks include many varieties not found in the states but will be recognized by travelers and those from Latin countries. One of the family members prides himself at Cuban coffee and comes around often with free shots for patrons. You will feel warm and welcome here and will leave with leftovers from the ample servings of this excellent food.

“Authentic!”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

We travel a great deal and this place is like being there! Excellent food with just the right flavor that if you close your eyes after taking a bite you will think you are on the island! Score one for the owner. They got this place right! Great food!

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stopped here yesterday and were wowed by the food. Hubby had the roast pork black beans and rice with plantains. It was AWESOME! I had the ropa veja and the same sides. AWESOME. Then we had the cafe con leche. We can not wait to go back. Service was a little slow but worth the wait and they were very apologetic. A must stop place!

“Very good Miami style Cuban food”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

Breakfast or Lunch this place is good. You will not leave hungry.My favorite is the Chicken Sandwich Chicken breast cooked Cuban style on Cuban bread Pressed to crispy perfection.All the food is very authentic and delicious.For a small restaurant to have survived and thrived in this out of the way place with Ocala's fickle food tastes is a testament to the owners.
