I thought the food was good, but not great. It seemed like what you might eat if a Cuban friend cooked for you (which isn't a bad thing). I guess I was expecting something slightly more elevated.

So authentic, fresh, and delicious! Best empanadas I’ve ever had! Small but they will be expanding soon. Don’t miss this “trip” to Cuba.

The food is amazingly tasty. The soft tacos are so tender and the marinade is delicious. Try the specials, they’re worth it. Servers are very attentive. It’s time to move to bigger digs!

Small venue. Make reservations if dining on the weekend. Dim lighting made it hard to read the menu. Food was tasty. We all said we would go back.

Excellent fresh food with a “CubaRican” flair.
The restaurant is small and a bit cramped but the staff is extremely nice and welcoming.
The space is no frills but the food is excellent. I look forward to going there again.

Love the Cuban-Latin food and vibe! Great empanadas, paella, and not-too-sweet sangria! Our friends loved the pernil and the Brussel sprout salad. Small place so not really great for big groups but definitely worth it for something different and delicious.

A nice find in Huntington. Nice atmosphere, very good service and yummy food. We were 4 people and we all had great appetizers and entrees. The desserts are not to be missed. If you like Cuban food, this is a place you will want to check out. You won’t be disappointed.

We have many choices in Huntington. Babalu is the finest restaurant in Huntington. My wife and I go often, and we have never been disappointed.

My husband and I go here for a wonderful night out. The food is perfection and the staff make you feel like part of the family. Love the entertainment too. Can hardly wait to return. The pastelles bring me back to my childhood in Brooklyn.

First time at this restaurant. Its a quaint and cozy ambience. Staff was very friendly. It was like walking into your family’s home. The food was fresh, made in house and delicious. We began with the pegao - a special plate and the octopus. Both were delicious and perfectly made. Also had the pasteles, a typical puertorican dish. Reminded me of my grandmothers. Finished off with the pernil dinner and the housemade flourless chocolate cake and house made ice cream with the hot chocolate coffee. Yum. Will definitely be back.
