Alvarez Cafe reviews from OpenTable diners
  • We'll be back
    Angelus
    Dined on 5/3/2013
    Basket of warm freshly buttered bread was a nice start. We had shrimp and pork chop entrees for the main dishs. Both had very flavorful sauces. Portions were just right not too much and not too little. Beans and tostones were perfect. Each had 1 Cuba Libre. $8 each but they were a healthy pour. Finished with a very hot robust cafe con leche. Our waiter was very attentive, professional and attentive. Definitely will return with friends.

    The atmosphere is cafe like, but enjoyable for a nice Cuban lunch or dinner. Food was authentic and very good.
