Serving up traditional Cuban entree's for decades here in Tampa.
Capdevila is the sit down version of the historical diner that adjoins the restaurant. Both places share the same kitchen so it's the same food just a bit more of an intimate setting.
The food portions here are huge and the style of Cuban food, if you are new to it is not that healthy of an option. Starches here are a mainstay with yellow rice, plantains and yuca being a common side options for many of the meals. This food is the quintessential Cuban/American cuisine at super affordable prices and you will not go home hungry here. Almost all meals come with two sides and there are a large selection of options to choose from so all should be pleased.
This place serves up the the mainstays that you expect to see in a Cuban/American restaurant such as; ropa vejia (shredded beef), puerco asado (roasted pork), Arroz con pollo (chicken and yellow rice), boliche mechado (stuffed roast eye round). Look, I can go on and on here I hope you get the idea.
The restaurant can be loud but that's expected it is a Cuban restaurant you are going to hear conversation and lots of it and it will not be spoken at a whisper! If you come at the dinner hour, it will also most likely be packed but people move in and out pretty quickly.
The dining area is not that clean and i's typical to find bits of Cuban bread throughout the carpet. But given the fact they serve Cuban bread to every table it's going to be difficult to have the restaurant crumb-less.
