Diner Reviews
  • "The food was incredible, best I've had in California. Staff was polite, enthusiastic and helpful! After, the bar was a great place to talk with friends and dance to a LIVE Cuban band! Awesome Saturday Night!"

  • "It was a great experience and great Cuban food in the area of Burbank. We celebrated our daughters HS graduation and we had a ball. Our reservation for 10 was ready and waiting for us. Salsa Music was fantastic!"

  • "Very generous food portions, way too much to eat, and pretty good. It was fun listening to the live music and dancing. If you can salsa, the floor is hard on the feet (not wood covered) but it's slick enough for turns and spins. They offer salsa lessons and a DJ on Saturdays; On the Friday we visited there was a live band, check their website."

  • "Went for lunch on a weekday before a movie screening, and it was a very satisfying and filling meal. Since it was quiet, we almost had the place to ourselves. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Our neighboring table of diners informed us that there are salsa/mambo nights at the restaurant. It would be interesting to check that out and the dinner experience as well."

  • "It was our first time visiting the restaurant. I was there with my husband, my cousin and 2 close friends. The food was delicious. Our server was very helpful. The place has a very welcoming atmosphere. We will be having dinner there again soon. They have live music but we had to miss it because my friends had to get home early."

  • "I think it's over rated on Yelp. The food's adequate (we've had much better cuban food). side dish of plantain includes 3 pieces which is just stingy. Why don't you call it "garnish" rather than side dish. I was hoping for better atmosphere based on the "Bar and Grill" in the name, but it's just a typical strip mall set up with no much atmosphere. Maybe good for lunch but not for weekend night out."
