Food is good, just good Cuban fare.

Best food I've had in Miami! Exceptional drinks, service was attentive and not overbearing, and the seafood platter for two is one of the best things I've eaten in the US. Everything was cooked to perfection.

This restaurant is a gem. I was looking for someone unique to go for dinner and what I got well exceeded my expectations. The food was amazing. Oscar was fantastic(please send the paella recipe to Colorado ha ha!). The tres Leche cake was delicious. The entire evening was perfect. Will definitely go back next time we are in town. Thank you!

My husband and I decided to try this place and we weren't disappointed. We loved everything we ordered. The tostones were delicious especially the shrimp one. We also had the avocado salad which was also great! For drinks, my husband ordered their classic mojito, guava mojito, and the mula habanera. He enjoyed every drink he had. I had a virgin mango mojito (pregnant) and it was super tasty. For entrees, I ordered the ropa vieja and it was really good but the highlight was my husband's churrasco. It was AMAZING! It was cooked perfectly and incredibly moist and flavorful. We ended the night getting q tres leches to go and it did not disappoint. Overall, we loved our experience there and the ambiance was great with the latin music playing in the background.

I cannot say enough about this place! The food was delicious. The waitstaff were genuine, enthusiastic and friendly. The music was great. Clearly a family owned place and we just loved the vibe. We ordered the ceviche and guacamole as appetizers and both got the paella for dinner. All delicious!

Unfortunately, this place was very over hyped. The service was very mediocre at best for the overall cost. We were greeted (rudely) 20 minutes late for our reservation, and were not able to sit immediately. The food was okay, but not for the price. Great decorations and good drinks, but would not return unless sitting directly at the bar for drinks only.

After ordering a meal for myself and my wife, the waiter only brings back my wife’s salad. Wait a little while, and then have to remind him I have an appetizer and my meal coming. He pretended to not know I ordered two more things. While we wait(hour and a half), I finish my drink without anyone knowing. Other table next to us had calamari coming to them. Waiter drops it on way, the table does not see... but we do. Throws away what was dropped (half the plate of calamari) and delivers the rest to the unbeknowing table, which they paid for.

On top of the crappy service and experience, we were forced to pay an 18% gratuity (included on bill). And the waiter said, that is not the tip either. It is for the hotel and the service staff to split.HORRIBLE!

Excellent food, reasonably priced and attentive service. Churasco steak was great and Happy Hour mojitos were only about $5.

Food wasn’t as flavorful as I thought it would be. Tables were so close together. Waiter dropped the food off and I never saw him again, had to flag someone down to get the check

Fantastic food and energy! What a great setting for some awesome Cuban food! Waitstaff is super busy running around so it can take a little extra time during peak periods, would definitely return to again and recommend to friends!

The service was excellent but the food did come out a little slow. We didn’t mind because of the great drinks, ambience and electricity in the restaurant.
Our waiter did give us a free dessert because of how long it all took so that tells me this was an unusually slow night for the kitchen. On that note, the Tres Leches cake was the best I’ve ever had.

We went for dinner and ended up leaving after our 1st cocktail that took about 30 minutes to arrive. They passed off cheap tequila as Casamigos because the bar was so limited. They didn't even have cranberry juice. The process to order and recieve 8 drinks correctly was so exhausting that we decided to have dinner somewhere else.
