Fun to sit outside on the pedestrian walkway and enjoy the taste of Havana! Mojitos and the house chicken are the way to go!

Everything about this place was terrific. We took out of town friends here and they felt like they were at a party. The food is delicious, everyone loved what they ordered, our server was delightful, the music while loud inside lent just the right Cuban ambience. We moved our table to outdoors because it was hard to hear each other talk and the staff were very accommodating. As a local I never go to Lincoln Road to eat but I’ll definitely go back.

Our first time at a Cuban eatery and didn't even know what to order. Our waitress helped and nailed it. I had the Classic (36 hour marinated chicken with gravy) and my wife had the traditional Cuban. Both were excellent. Service was quick and waitress was social and happy. I'll be back on my next visit to Miami.

My wife and I were on vacation and went to the Lincoln Street restaurant. We were seated outside amongst the palm trees, decorative lights, and authentic Cuban music. After a couple minutes we forgot that we were eating in the middle of the city.

The waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and drinks. The food she recommended was amazing. We would definitely go back next time we are in the area.
