This place has never disappointed. I had a friend tell me that it’s not authentic and it’s a chain... which true... it has 5 locations, but I love this one because of its outdoor seating. The food has always been delicious as are their mojitos. I had the ropa vieja and it was just enough to hit the spot! I do recommend this place, but I have no other Cuban restaurant experiences to compare it too. It is in a very touristy area.

I ordered their Chicken Special and it’s a memorable meal. The staff were quick to serve you drinks and cocktails. The portion is family style and it is a good idea to share. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and exciting. I love that they were playing music. I highly recommend this place when visiting Miami Beach

Very good food, attentive service in a nostalgic packed venue with seating inside a small main restaurant that also extends out into Lincoln Road. As part of our Open Table reservation we were to be given a free Mojito for Mojito Day. The waiter asked us if we wanted the small guest sized one or would we prefer the large sized one (knowing that we would be paying for what would be a larger and probably better drink)- We went for the large drink which was huge and almost undrinkable - in fact, of the four of us, none could or would finish the drink. The topper was in the final bill - $39 for the Mojito and $17 for the meal. It was then that we realized : TOURIST TRAP ! And we got trapped. We chose this restaurant because it was within walking distance from our hotel (The Delano) and we wanted some Cuban good. We should have kept walking.

It was ok to say the least. My sandwich was supposed to come with gravy per the menu and it didn't, so it was extremely dry. They sat us right by the door which was open and people were smoking which came right in at us. We were never offered refills.

The food was amazing: I tried the mango Mojito and it was Amazing-it was served with fresh mango and a piece of sugarcane that I chewed on to enjoy the flavor.. We also had a number of meat and fish dishes (And a Cuban sandwich). Everything was professionally prepared.

Laurent was our server. She was super friendly, helped us in choosing our dishes and switch back-and-forth between Spanish and English to help us all understand what we’re getting. She was also very witty and personable!

Good experience. Tight fit with seating. We were seated outside right by the door. Not the ideal location. Restaurant is on a pedestrian walkway, so you can people watch while you eat. Food was ok.
