Rice beans, coconut fish with mango salsa, chicken with a spicy gravy. The best beans in Montclair! A bit loud and the seating is crowded into overdone rooms, but did I already say the food was sensational? Service was courteous and Prices reasonable for the generous portions served. Will go again.

We visited there on a warm Saturday afternoon.

I enjoyed how there was outdoor seating that was not right on the street. Their courtyard between the buildings gives a great atmosphere - must be awesome at night.

Food was good. Started with a pitcher of Sangria, some small tapas plates, and had a Cuban sandwich and a grilled chicken sandwich. Everything was good. Not great. But good indeed.

I've been hearing about this place from friends...so finally went to this place on a Sunday with 9 other friends. We had a great time! good food, excellent service, reasonable price, and nice Latin ambiance. Try not to come on a weekend....we had to wait but its expected since they had to create a table for 10.... If you are coming in a large group make sure that you are all at the place at the same time otherwise you will not be seated...PARK behind the place or at FULLERTON for $5 (beside a bank). Try their punch/sangria bring your own RED WINE, order tapas, goat cheese fritters, empanada, crispy pork, chorizo , and sweet plantains (they are cheap). Definitely try their OXTAIL, PARGO (fried whole red snapper), skirt steak. Have fun and try new things!

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute at this restaurant. It's bring your own liquor, and they will add your wine in the sangria for you. The food as fresh, made to order and perfect. All the seasonings were incorporated perfectly. The music, live band, and the atmosphere makes you were not in Montclair. Will definitely return, and soon.

This restaurant is a little piece of Havana that will ALMOST make you want to move to Joizee. The al freso courtyard is complete with palm trees, water fountain, and blazing sun in the summer months, unless you get lucky with a shady spot like we did. We tried many appetizers and found them all delicious. Be sure to BYOB because brown-bagging is the only way to get a drink in this joint. We were able to send the youngest member of our party, who was thankfully over 21, on a buying trip. She trotted next door and brought back a bottle of rum for our pitcher of mojitos so that our experience was complete. As an added treat, a waiter slipped me a piece of paper on my way out the door. It had his phone number with a message that said: I LIKE YOU. Sadly for him, I was not on the menu.
