The Tesoros Cubanos was okay, Cuban bruschettas lacked flavor, received one fried yuca and one fried pork chunks, which the pork did not taste fresh. The camarones al ajillo tasted like the shrimp was frozen, it was not fresh caught. Overall, I've had better cuban food, will not go back.

In my opinion, these people don't get out much. Good food costs more....period. My son and I had great meals, good service and wonderful atmosphere. A very different experience for him and worth the money. Get there early as there was a pretty good line out the door as we were leaving. (Saturday night)

I enjoyed the rice and beans and flan. His girlfriend enjoyed the ropa vieja. The music wasn’t loud or too much but I can imagine on a wknd it would be much more upbeat. It was a nice visit.

The food was amazing, prices well within reason. Cocktails were decorative and light. The service could have been better. It wasn’t a busy time, but my table had to remind of request quite a few times.

It was our first time there . Absolutely amazing . Food was delicious , drinks were on point and the ambiance was great. Could be for a romantic evening or just a nice evening out with friends . We had the opportunity to listen to live music . Much needed since the start of the COVID s**** over a year ago. It was nice to spend time , and retune into my Caribbean roots again . Highly recommend ! Reservation recommended as well.

I found it odd the gratuity was automatically added to the bill, my girlfriend is a server as well we both know & understand that especially post pandemic it is imperative to tip your hard working servers that may have had little to no income during the lockdowns, but we just found the fact that the gratuity was automatically added to the bill of a party of only two a bit distasteful. I honestly would have tipped more than 18 percent. We enjoyed the live band & the food was enjoyable & good & the hostess was sweet. I would visit again. I recommend the Coconut Mojito!
