My husband and I had our first date here 5 years ago. We just went back for our anniversary dinner and it was just as wonderful. We generally order way too much food but it's all so good! They even gave us a congratulatory champagne and dessert. We will definitely be coming back!

Fantasy place! The good is great. We came with a baby in a stroller in a busy Saturday night and they put us in the side dining room, which was in fact much nicer and more quiet. The staff was very accommodating of the baby, which is not to be taken for granted in this city.
I recommend the red sangria — it’s strong and not too sweet— and the vaca frito main course. It’s fantastic. And the churros with chocolate sauce for dipping are surreal.

A bit too loud to hear the person who's literally two feet from you. The food was mediocre and overcooked. The hostess tried to sell us the price fixed menu even before we were seated. The forks and plates were dirty (dried food). The sangria was ok. Overall just an ok experience. Not going back.

Everything was great EXCEPT for the bad 80's music blaring from the bar. The music choice didn't match the ambience at all. Would have preferred Cuban music!

May have been good but when we were taken FROM the side with all the energy and life and sat down “next door” where it was dark, cold and seriously nearly vacant we did not feel so “warm” about staying.
The black beans and rice were good, drinks not so much.
Havana NAH NAH NAH, pass.

I come here a lot. The staff is always extremely kind, friendly, knowledageble, and helpful. The mojitos are some of the best I've ever had. My server, Ruben, is the man, and always has a smile on his face. Make sure you try the empanadas, the tostones, and the corn - all delicious! Definitely check this place out. There's a reason it's been open for a long time.

This little Cuban restaurant has been here for a long time and can always be depended on to serve an excellent meal whether you order fish, meat or a chicken dish. I'm never been disappointed . the staff is also very friendly. Only one thing to caution here is that at times it can get quite noisy.
If you like Cuban food I urge all to come. Once you've had a meal there, yI know you'll come back again.

This restaurant is a little gem within the West Village that we used Open Table to book following reading the reviews. The place is small, cosy and full of atmosphere. It was my first Cuban restaurant and branched out to try the fantastic menu. The live music and the ambience of the place added to the experience.

Quiet and spacious outdoor dining area, solid food for a good price, and we got a lovely post-dinner drink on the house. Thought the mojito was too tweet, but it was a fantastic price at happy hour ($6) and I'd go again for sure.
