We were celebrating our friends wedding anniversary. We had a really nice time, food was very good. Service was excellent and loved the band. Noise level is a tad high, but not a dealbreaker. Great ambiance, very tropical and homey.

Perfect restaurant for Valentine’s Day with dim lighting, live band, drinks and of course delicious food!

I have been to this place dozens of times, it’s one of my fav spots. I made a reservation a week in advance because it was my birthday night. I arrived on time and had to wait AN HOUR! They obviously do not know how to manage reservations and tables. I wasted so much time waiting around it effected the rest of my bday celebration. I will definitely think twice about coming back here.

The service was only out done by the food. Empanadas were outstanding and the pulled pork with black beans and rice were delicious and brought back many fond memories of time spent in Cuba. Don’t forget to try a mojito, lots of flavours to choose from. Will definitely be back my next trip to NYC.

Had the best time at the New Years party! The food is amazing, I loved everything I tried on the unlimited menu. There was a really good band and everyone was having a great time.

Our server and serving staff were very pleasant and accommodating, as we were celebrating good times with family from out of town and made the evening a special one. The live music helped me share the culture in an immersive experience. The food was just as I expected it
to be.

My family went here for Thanksgiving dinner. They had a "traditional" turkey dinner with all the usual sides. Only my youngest daughter had that and loved the mashed potatoes (asked for an extra bowl). My wife, older daughter, and myself ordered off the regular Cuban menu and it did not disappoint! LARGE portions! We got two full meals out of the portions of one meal. I had a traditional pork dish, my wife a gigantic and delicious salad and maduras to die for. My daughter had a salmon dish that she loved. Don't skip the mojitos. They have several variations (I had peach, champagne and coconut and my wife stuck with Mango). All were delicious and didn't skimp on the alcohol. Highly recommended. It was quite loud with a live band when we first arrived at 8pm. Later when the band came back, they seemed to have brought the volume down a bit, so we could carry on a conversation. Very friendly and attentive staff. This is a true gem in our E. Harlem neighborhood.

I would not recommend this restaurant. Their NY health grade was Grade Pending. We should not have gone in, but we were meeting friends from Connecticut and didn’t know where else to go.
The food was mediocre at best and the live band was so loud that we could not talk even in an adjacent private room.

I really like this restaurant and come here from time to time. My only disappointment is that even though I had a reservation, they asked me to wait at the bar for half an hour before they had a table available. I was expecting them to make a table available for me before my arrival.

Went here with a group of casual friends. It was a great place to get to know each other. The atmosphere was lively but not too noisy (until the music started, which is terrific but very loud for the space.) The food was fun and very tasty. The hostess could have been more helpful leading us through the menu, but we liked what we ordered so all was well.

Pork was dry. Paella was good. Music had technical difficulties. Overall, this place used to be good and seems to have dropped in quality over the years, which is disappointing.
