EXCELLENT! Will definitely add this to my list of favorite restaurants.
Great restaurant and the food is outstanding! Be patient as food is made to order but definitely worth the extra time waiting. Owner was very nice and personable!
Food is excellent! Owners made a point to visit and discuss history of restaurant and secret to recipes. Authenticate Cuban food!
Great hidden gem. Don’t let the exterior fool you, the food and service have always been top notch for us.
Best Cuban food since living in Tampa, Florida 35 years ago. Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant. Food quality and service were impeccable. Our party of three had the Empanada Sampler as a starter... simply delicious. It came with a two beef, two chicken, one ham and cheese and one guava and cheese empanada. The Guava Cheese empanada was an unexpected sweet but oh my goodness was it yummy! Then we each had our own entree described in pictures below. We will be back and tell our friends!
We were looking for a local spot to celebrate my birthday and recently dined at another Cuban establishment that made us wonder if we had one nearer to our house. I looked online and found many positive reviews about this place so we took a chance. Great call!
The restaurant is located in a strip shopping center that looks unassuming but when you enter the space the vibe is more like a chic cafe. It wasn’t busy the night we were there so the service was exceptional. We asked the waiter for suggestions and as the son of the owner he was more than happy to give us a few pointers. For starters the empanadas were definitely part of the mix along with a creative avocado and palm heart salad. Both were incredible. My wife and I both decided to try the churrasco, a strip steak with chimichurri sauce on the side. It came with tostones and rice with black beans. The portions were great and the steaks were cooked a perfect medium rare as requested. Such a flavorful cut of meat. We toasted with sangría since it was the drink special that night. Upon learning it was my birthday they insisted on buying me a dessert and we opted for the tres leches cake. Amazing.
Before leaving we asked if we could thank the chef (again, the waiter’s mom) in person. She was so sweet to us and thanked us for coming in for what would be the first of many meals there. They really know their stuff here and we’re lucky to have them in our neighborhood.
We went to Havana Tropical for a quick date night before catching a concert at Verizon amphitheater. This is one of the best dining experiences we have ever had the food was exquisite and the service was top notch.
Service was OK but had to ask for more water. Also, tried to use a certificate for $25 (with minimum purchase of $50) and the waiter first took it to the back and then came back to say "it can not be used on weekends (it was Saturday)" and then when we told him that we had used one about a month ago then he went to the back and came back to say "we no longer participate" in that program. I think the people were just trying to get out of accepting the certificate. We will not be going back there again nor recommending to others.
Waited over one and half hours for our meal.
Everyone in the restaurant waited as well. Server was not attentive. Food was just ok and nothing special. Only good part was listening to the sax player.
I hope that we caught them at a bad time (heard that a computer was down), as the staff is very friendly and food was good. On our visit, service was slow, food came out slowly and things seemed to be in a disarray. We will give it another chance because it is close and the food/people are nice. More to come.
Lechon asado and yellow rice tasted so delicious. I just had to eat every bite! The music, sax solist, was relaxing, but so loud that my husband and I could not enjoy our conversation.
Food is great, the family is friendly and our friends loved it
Excellent service and food. A little piece of Havana in Alpharetta!

Great atmosphere, and great authentic cuban food.
We had a coupon for the restaurant - what better way to give it a try?
The food was outstanding, genuine Cuban Cuisine. This is what makes a coupon great - a good way to introduce a restaurant and put it on your comeback list.
We had a delicious meal and will definitely return again!
