    Great place to catch the vibe of Ocean Drive. We sat outside on the sidewalk and the weather was perfect. The drinks were good, the marinade pork and chicken is a must! The plantain chips are addictive. Be sure to walk Ocean Drive after dinner.

    from the staff at the front door to the beautiful center stage table , ambiance , lighting and food! The BEST Cuban chicken ever! But the highlight of the entire evening was definitely the amazingly talented performers! I felt like Selena was reincarnated in her.! So sweet and wonderful! Will be back!

    Beautiful building in a great setting. Took unusually long for our party and a party seated before us to get a drink order… ie 15 minutes. Same thing for the dinner order. Some food was good like the fries. The special chicken was dry and flavorless. As a former food server I do not like the restaurant applying an automatic 20% tip.

    I don’t understand why besides the tip automatically included in the bill for 2 PEOPLE and this restaurant charges a fee for Covid???! There is nothing indicative that we are in a distance and clean protocol in this restaurant. I don’t like that this was not told ahead of time that surcharge fees and tipping are automatically placed in the bill. Tourists should be told this or tipping at 40-50% is ridiculous because it’s just quietly putting in the tab.

    At least during low season, the inside area is a no-go (big, dark and empty), though it must be nice when full. That being said, the outside has zero atmosphere, it’s literally and hotel lobby with tables. Even the music comes from the place next to it. The service was extremely poor. We were seated 10 minutes before getting someone to come over for water and drinks. The same thing happened all over the night, not once a server came to check on us, we had to call them every time and still was hard. The food is not good enough. If you get something very simple, like a Cuban Sandwich for example, it’s going to be ok (how can you screw a melted cheese sandwich anyway?), but anything more complex, don’t waste your time. There kitchen for sure operates more as a simple hotel or fast food complexity standard.

    Great location on Ocean Drive in South Beach. The ham croquetas were a great starter and the Cuban Sampler was the way to go for me. We enjoyed the place so much that we had Cubans sandwiches for lunch and we came back again for a nice breakfast.
