Simple elegance. Old-world charm. Creative cooking.
Step into Mario’s Catalina Restaurant and you instantly feel the hustle of the city fade. Soothing colors, soft lighting, crisp linens and fragrant aromas all conspire to transport you to a more tranquil setting.
While Catalina’s ambiance is undeniably appealing, dining out really is all about the food! That’s why co-owner and chef, Mario Flores, went to great lengths to create a menu of Spanish and Cuban dishes that complement each other.
The result: authentic Latin food masterfully prepared. Add to that attentive service and a chilled glass of simply the best Sangria in town, and you’re well on your way to a memorable experience!

First time in a Cuban restaurant and loved the experience. Prices seemed a bit high but quality was good.

The food is the reason to come to Catalina restaurant. The restaurant itself is cozy and has a very pleasant atmosphere. There's a small bar you can dine at if you are doing the "pop-in" and they will also accommodate walk in traffic if tables are available.

This is a notch above the more recognizable Spanish/Cuban offerings in the area.

If you are in the mood for delicious and plentiful portions, you must try Catalina restaurant!

We had empanadas as an appetizer which was excellent. I had the Salmon and shrimp in a red sauce and my wife had the chicken chunks which both were super! Service was on point also.

The food was great, we have eaten here on previous occasions and the service was better in the past, but was still good. I recommend this restaurant if you like Cuban or Spanish Cuisine.

This was a bad experience. We made an open table reservation. When we arrived we waited at least 10 minutes for someone to acknowledge us. When he did (it wasn’t the owner) I said I had a reservation and he said “everyone has a reservation - wait at the bar”. He never took my name. We were seated and our waiter was brusque. He never told us about specials (we heard him later telling another table). The food was fine but for what it is the prices are crazy. You could get better or same Cuban food in Miami for half the price. I would never go back to this awful place because of the service and the price.
