Cuban

Specialties include traditional favorites as well as Cuban-inspired dishes. From sweet and salty bacon-wrapped maduros, black bean hummus served with crisp plantain chips, to a fresh tropical ceviche and a sizzling chicken vaca frita. Signature dishes include award-winning lechón (roasted pork), house-made pork tamales and the classic arroz con pollo. Triple C: “Calorie Conscious Cuban” - a selection of delicious, guilt-free Cuban staples created by Gloria herself. Items include marinated & grilled fresh grouper, baked plantain chips, vegetarian black beans and baked sweet plantains, among other selections.

Delicious food. We tried the Cuban side menu items and loved every bite! The only negative thing we can say about the visit was how long it took for our server to come back to our table for us to order. So long that we had to order with another server who was assisting another table. She did a wonderful job.

As a legit Cuban, the food was DELICIOUS! Just like my mom used to cook! We enjoyed the tostones rellenos, croquetas the jamon, empanadas, mariquitas, and then went on to have full entrees! Every bite was great! Food arrived quickly. Mojito was good.. The manager came by to check with us and all the tables around us sitting in front patios to see that all was good. Could not have enjoyed it more!!

Sangria was horrible, took one sip and didn’t even finish. Our server never returned to ask how everything was, our food was brought by someone else and was just as bad if not worse. I didn’t even eat my meal. Told the server as he was picking up our dishes and leaving the check and he just walked away. No response... terrible experience. Would not recommend.

Bait and switch
We made a reservation for Sunday lunch to take advantage of their Miami Spice promotion (their website clearly stated, “Join us for Miami Spice - lunch and dinner Sunday-Thursday.”) When we got there, however, they told us they had decided not to offer the promo menu on this particular Sunday because, and I quote, “if you had read the fine print, it says at the bottom we reserve the right to make changes.” Which is a ridiculous bit of legalese to disguise a bait-and-switch scam, and also made it sound like we were somehow to blame for not doing our homework (!) Nice décor, good mojitos, food OK (not bad, not great). We will not return, on principle - not that they’ll care, since they trade on the Estefan name and the abundance of tourists in Miami Beach to ensure that for every customer they alienate, there are 10 more who don’t know any better.

OMG the food was so good!!! And the drinks were excellent! The service was top notch and looking forward to going again. Yes it’s on South Beach so expect the usual scene once you leave the restaurant, but inside is a lovely restaurant for family and friends - exactly the atmosphere I think the Estefans were trying to create.

It was good overall my grilled sea food platter had moments of brilliance. Shrimp was amazing. Calamari and lobster were over cooked. Would love to have it be all as good as the shrimp

Service and ambiance were great, Food very average indeed with a ton of rice and not a lot else!
I think there is far better value available on South Beach if you want Cuban...

Food was delicious minus the tostones cup with grilled shrimp it needed some type of sauce or guacamole or that green cilantro sauce. Also a great date night spot.
