A Piece of Havana
We reward our guests by combining the native Siboney staples of corn, peanuts, and yucca with the Spanish accents of rice and olive oil. Alongside relocated Floridian Cubans, Belkis and Juan Plasencia, is a chef who together create garlic and herb-infused delights of the empanadas, moros y cristianos (black beans mixed with white rice), and of course the classic Cuban sandwich. Feel free to take full advantage of the take-out and coffee-to-go bar and drop by for live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Being our Guest is caliente!

I love the Flavor in the OX Tails and the side items were great as well.
Nice area lots of parking. Good food with a several items on menu to choose from.
Excellent food and service!! Everytime I go to Charlotte this is my first stop.
Enjoyed the live music but it was a bit too loud to hold a conversation with the table.
Nice socially distanced place to eat and listen to live music. Can be loud
1st time here since the pandemic started. Tables are now spread far apart versus how it used to be. Tables were pretty close and hard to get around before. Service was good and good was good as usual. A great place to get some Cuban cuisine.
Everything was very clean and the service was great.
when I put moderate for noise level, it's because my family and I enjoyed the music. I felt that the waitress slipped up a little, meaning she wasn't as attentive to us. The manager kept coming to make sure my family was satisfied. However, food and the environment was amazing! Will definitely come back.
It was great
We received our food 1hour and 45 minutes later. We had to keep asking to find our server to order drinks. The place was packed so it was hard just to get up and use the bathroom. Because it was so busy our food was cold and bad flavor and we just wanted to leave and get out of there. We thought it was it a good place but I will never be going back. We spent 300 dollars and it was just the worst experience, specially when it’s someone’s birthday. The live band didn’t even use the name of the birthday person. It’s not worth it.
We were excited to see the place was almost empty on a Sunday afternoon only to be disappointed by the unattentive waitress and mediocre quality of food. They also were out of a few things such as the skirt steak. Probably will not be returning unless it’s just for drinks on a weekend night.
Great atmosphere and good food, good music live. Highly Recommended
Very crowded for the occasion yet service was very good and food was outstanding
Fabulous and great Food
We love this place. Great authentic food, drinks, and atmosphere!
Fantastic food and service. Live music was amazing!!!
Great food and great place
Service was very slow but band was good & food good
The food was amazing but the service was much to be desired. My date and I sat at our table for almost a half an hour with no server attending to us. I had to ask the hostess to get our server. The server hardly checked on us and she have me unsweetened tea when I asked for sweet tea. When we got our dish we were not given utensils or napkins. The overall environment was fun. The service needs to improve.
As always, the food was amazing
Came for dinner and to hear the Hispanic band play. They were amazing! Food was great. Had the shrimp with garlic sauce, yellow rice with vegetables and amazing Cuban green beans. Hubby had steak with the same sides. All was very well seasoned and prepared. Drinks AMAZING! That sangria was delicious and strong. So was the Cuban rum and coke and Peach Long Island. I will be coming back for the Paella next time!!
Ceviche was delicious!! Sandwiches were okay only they were out of mayo.
Very beautiful atmosphere
Manuel was excellent- great service. Food was outstanding!!!!
Very, very poor customer service manners!!!
We arrived to be told there was a cover charge. The only decent person was the lady hostess who at the least offered to seat us at the bar; with no cover charge. Once seated, the bartender had an awful attitude towards us. We decided not to stay and take our business elsewhere.
Outstanding food with just the right level of spice, flavor, and heat. Staff is wonderful and take good care of you. Very good value for the money.
Nothing special in my opinion when it comes to the food and service. In my opinion, the good had no flavor.
Great food and live music on weekends. I would definitely go back
Portions are large and the food is so good! They have a live band on Fridays (we are told) and singers on Saturday that start at 7. Service is friendly and fast. Food was hot and delicious. We will definitely be back!
Food was ok, but entertainment was very good
We have visited this place in the past and we always liked it; however, nothing more pathetic and disappointing than being charged a "Service Fee" for paying with a credit card! This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever experienced in a restaurant. The worst part is that they don't let you know, so I guess most of the customers have not even noticed this charge.
It was a wonderful overall experience! We will be going back soon!
A pleasant restaurant with attentive service for very small groups and individuals. Food was not great on this visit but tasty.
Great atmosphere, my go-to place every Friday - live music is the best.
As always the food is great and entertainment is great to but it’s so loud that you can’t talk to your guest and it’s makes it hard to order which is already hard enough with the language differences
We have eaten
At this restaurant many times.
We were there last Thursday for my
Husbands birthday. The worst and slowest service ever.
Took us over an hour just to give and order and get food.
We have never experienced this here before but we were very
Disappointed with this experience.
service was ok full bar little bit of a language barrier food was very good but the coffee was great
OUR BEST TO THE NEW OWNER. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK,
WE SHALL RETURN.
Great music . Good food . Good menu selection. It's a family kind of restaurant and decent bar selection
Great food and staff
