Love the restaurant. Great food and drinks. I felt like I was in Cuba. The waitress Sueli was so nice to my 4 year old daughter. They gave my daughter and I a rose for valentine day. Staff was nice. If you sit outside the table is wobbly due to brinks. Waitress tried to fix it. But honestly I liked the wobble felt like I was in Cuba

 (Orlando)·Dined on January 13, 2018

The second attempt in trying the churrasco plate and for the second time they didn't get the temperature correctly. Server was nice, but when asking my husband his age and where he is from it became uncomfortable. Its okay to build rapport with guests, but watch personal questions.
We had to chase her down to get a pen for the check, and they had the audicty to charge us for the steak after again hunting mgmt he took care of it. Overall our group enjoyed themselves.music is awesome. Ambience is great. They just need to retrain on steak temperature to perfect such a common dish. I would recommend ropa vieja dish..very tasty.

Great food and service. I am Vegan and there where some great options to choose from. I recommend the Cuban Coffee with a shot of rum it was delicious. For the table bread if you are Vegan ask for no butter spread. One of my favorite restaurants to go to on a date night with my husband 😍

The food was great! I was very happy w/ the whole night. Especially the waitress. Dark skin Spanish young lady w/ excellent work ethic. She was very informative, polite yet fun. She went out of her way for us all. She made our night even more special. I'm sorry we can't remember her name but THANK YOU for making our night, my parents 49th Wedding Anniversary even more special!

Everything was delicious! To start, you must try the hummus platter with plantain chips! My son loved the ribs, my daughter couldn’t stop raving about the Havana sandwich, and my husband got the tapas special. For a full Cuban experience I recommend the tapas special. It had a sampling of the appetizers, entrees and 2 desserts of your choice. I enjoyed my citrus chicken but kept trying all my husband’s portions. The desserts were amazing! If you have a sweet tooth, get the rocky road! We thought it was neat that they brought the receipt in a cigar box! Very neat place! A must try!

Great Crab/Guac appetizer. Chicken entree was good and ribs ok. Pork was awful - over cooked and child’s steak was “a scrap of meat.”

Good rum menu. Order selectively. Manager asked how the meal was but was walking away as we were providing feedback....he really did not care. Still charged for overcooked “burnt” pork after feedback. Offering deserts was nice gesture but I did not need the calories. Just serve better food and care!

Great location-gorgeous venue-great service- great food even according to well traveled and highly opinionated Latinos like us lol! Though we could tell the menu stylings had been customized to accommodate Americanized palates (its 2017 why wouldn’t they?) -zero complaints very well executed and extremely pleasing. We will be back for after dinner salsa! The octopus app was amazing but the shrimp cocktail needs lots of work also the tuna salad was not great won’t have them again

 (San Francisco)·Dined on November 29, 2017

My most recent visit was my second visit to this restaurant and it may be my last. The reason is two fold. First, the price I paid for my meal seemed a bit over-the-top for what I got ($30 for a small shrimp cocktail and a basket of plantain and taro chips and dip). Second, and the MOST important reason, is they took Cuban lechon asado off the menu! Lechon was the main reason I chose to return and I was dismayed to see the management removed it from the menu. Needless to say, I was a bit bummed.
