The food wasn’t that great. The ribs seemed frozen rather than cooked in house. The shrimp too.

End of project business meal
Food was too salty- mojit is tasted like coolaide- and it took 40 minutes to water and drinks- 2.5 hours and more than half of that time was spent waiting...

Tourist trap offering mediocre food in a kitsch setting. Nothing authentic about this Cuban restaurant. We ordered vaca frita and lechon asado, two Cuban classics, and found both well under par.

Seemed awkwardly calm and not busy, so I asked the bar tender---very convention driven, so if the business isn't from the conventions there is limited business. We didn't need reservations
but were helpful. Outdoor bar is small, indoor bar is bigger, happy hour cocktails are good. Sangria is good also. Bar tender Ceasar was awesome!

I had been to the Atlantic City location years ago and it was one of the best meals I had ever had. Orlando didn’t disappoint. My server, Julian, was very helpful and attentive. The food was fantastic. The Lechon Asada is the best there is, and the pineapple jalapeño guacamole is to die for. I will be back!

Really liked the Ceviche and shrimp cocktail on previous visits . Current ceviche is plated beautifully but not as large or tasty. Maybe I just miss the older version. Atmosphere Fantastic

When I arrived 8 minutes late for my birthday reservation, 1 of the 4 girls (she had purple hair) at the hostess stand quickly blurted out "They're late!" with an attitude. While she was correct, the attitude was not necessary and the restaurant was completely empty. It was very rude and a horrible 1st impression! Our waitress was lovely, pleasant, friendly & knowledgeable. The service, however, was painfully slow. My appetizer was fried plantains- they were hard like cardboard. My churrasco steak was hardly "ok", had zero latin flavor to it. I was starving because we had waited so long for food, so I ate it all. Maybe I'm particular because I am Cuban-American, but it just had no Latin flair or flavor to it at all. Food-wise, I felt more like I was at Cracker Barrel than a nice, Cuban restaurant. My mojito was bland. In a nutshell, the food is quite overpriced and mediocre at best- and the service was lacking. The ambiance and restaurant decor was really BEAUTIFUL! The birthday dessert display at the end was great and a lot of fun. I chose the flan, which was yummy! The remaining aspects, however, leave much to be desired. I'm glad I finally got to try it, but I have no plans on returning.

Excellent establishment.

We tried the 15 chef sampler - good small portions. Excellent shrimp, steak and other mini sides.

Good waiter. Knowledgeable and attentive. Didnt like my mojoito based on his recommendation but my wifes was good (mango)

Good value and atmosphere. See pics

Samplers. Octopus. Ceviche ( was ok)

Ps. Grilled octopus was really good.

The restaurant was absolutely gorgeous, the service was okay. As a Cuban I can tell you that the food was not authentic. They use salsas and hummus that are not true of the Cuban culture even the desserts were done wrong the music was a complete let down no Salsa music playing at all while we were having our dinner. Aside from this it was extremely over priced for the food.

Really a superb night out. Attentive service but not overwhelming, drinks are well crafted, highly recommend the grilled pineapple mojito if you like a sweeter drink. The food was great but it's not my Cuban grandmother's food. Our waiter told us it was modern and updated, he was right. The flavors were there but there were several twists and turns, overall a great meal! Limited wine selection, wish they would update but the red wine sangria made it all Good! Overall highly recommend and look forward to tasting the rest of the menu!
