    My wife and I had an early dinner prior to a Miami Heat game at the nearby arena. We made reservations and soon the restaurant was packed. We shared the Cuban appetizer sampler plate so we could enjoy a variety of new to us dishes. We liked the variety, found the food to be tasty and enjoyed the various dipping sauces that came with the sampler. The atmosphere is very lively and the tables are close together so don’t expect a quiet evening. The service was adequate and my cocktail from their craft cocktail list was well prepared and tasty. If you are looking for something different, we recommend.

    Too loud. You combine in that place 3 music at the same time, the boat is next to you. The place and the main show. You can't talk in this place. No list of wine, no coffee, machine broke. The waiter was nice and the food was good but I definitely not coming back.

    Food was super tasty. Staff were very attentive and accommodating. It can get a bit noisy from all the music coming from multiple places so it’s not your spot if you looking for a quiet dinner time. It didn’t bother us just mentioning it is not quiet :).

    Location and service were great. The food quality was rather poor and not worth the price. I’d say I had a good experience with the environment and staff however due to the food (most important part of a restaurant), I will not be coming back.

    We’re here with a group of friends (there were six of us) we decided to make a reservation and when we arrived at 8:15 they told us that the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes and we needed to hurry and order. There were no hours posted anywhere so we didn’t know that they were closing soon. Overall, the food was really good, but the surface was just not good, after we finished eating, we sat there for 15 minutes waiting for somebody to come over and give us the check, and mind you there’s no one else in the restaurant. It was an okay experience, the food was the thing that stood out the most!

    As a travel agent, it's my job to give an authentic review of the experience and I honestly most likely would not go back. Mostly due to my waiter not informing me that her recommendation would cost an extra $20. I ordered a pina colada and she asked me if I wanted it in a pineapple, as if it was just a substitute for the glass. Yes, that is not a likely scenario but when something results in an extra $20 just for presentation, I definitely feel as if a good waiter would let you know. The restaurant, like most in Miami, had an included gratuity (even as a party of 1) of 15% or 20%, and that little detail made me feel as if the waiter just wanted a bigger cut for her tips. As for the food, I simply had the chicken empanadas for $10 and it came with 2 of them. They were decently priced and well made. Overall, there is nothing I'd recommend about the restaurant, only because nothing really stood out to be besides the photo opportunities. You can get cheaper drinks right next door and there are so many restaurants nearby you could visit instead.

    Just a casual waterside spot which was a convenient walk from our hotel. Very very lively outdoor area with lots of passerby's. Cuban Food was very good. Service was ok and would be better if had outgoing lively personality but just ok. Recommend overall for casual lunch if you are at Bay Front on Biscayne.

    The value of what you get for the price was definitely not worth it. Although the food was delicious is was l very pricey for the amount of food you got. The service was great and food came out pretty quick.

    Our server Erin was wonderful. She was very attentive to our needs. The place is very hot. It is an open air restaurant. Go during the cooler months. The wine is HOT. I mean like it sat in the sun or by a heater hot. Order an iced beverage instead. This place is in a touristy location and the food is priced outrageously for the portion size. The Churrasco Steak was cooked to my liking but was very small, $40. Not what I am used to living in Miami my entire life and eating at many Cuban establishments. The Chimmichurri Sauce was way too salty…and I tend to salt everything. If you order it, taste it before dumping it on your steak. We ordered the Tostones, which were ok, $6. We ordered the Congri, $5, which tasted a little dry, but ok. We ordered the 1/2 house salad, $5, which was a nice generous portion with a great variety of fresh cold greens, VERY good. Sit outside. The view is great. Inside is so loud as they have the column up very loud for the outside guests. I probably will not be back.

    The food was not bad. The waiter was the only one serving all 6 tables with people. The drinks had no alcohol in them, they said they put 1 1/2 ounces, but with 2 1/2 ounces of mix and ice. They obviously limit their alcohol and save money, but the tourist and locals get screwed. Do not order drinks.

    Had no idea that there were two locations. I was expecting a great atmosphere and ended up going to a smaller version of the actual restaurant in Doral. This restaurant was literally dead. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to celebrate my birthday like I had hoped for.

    Everything was good. The only reason for not a 5 star rating is the waitress was not easily accessible. So we couldn't request any additional water or condiments. She was very nice and helpful when she was there. The food was great and the environment was nice.

    Excellent food - somebody back there knows how to cook, period. I would comeback just for that. Get the pork masitas to start (think carnitas on the dry side with warm pickled onions - good for sharing for two). We got and shared 2 entrees as a couple - the chicken and the grilled shrimp - then added the amazing maduros (plantains) and white rice/black beans. The chicken was tender and flavorful, the shrimp was fresh and perfectly cooked. All of it was amazing passionately cooked, quality food. The classic mojitos are awesome - drink 2.25 of them and you’ll be set. Impressive food quality for a touristy area.

    For where the place is located, definitely not worth the price tag. You’re sitting outside with people walking back and forth staring at you and you pay 50 dollars for a churrasco steak that only brings one side order and have to pay extra for others. The waitress was hard to find at times and the music is super loud for such a small place. I didn’t mind the choice in music but you have to find yourself screaming to talk to the people you’re with

    Loud music outside seating area. No Cuban coffee at an authentic Cuban restaurant and asked server if gratuity was included she said no, so I left 20% only to later realize 20% service charge was added automatically to the check.

    We wanted to try a local Cuban restaurant while we were in Miami. The food was just ok and the music was so loud we were literally screaming at each other to talk which made it a horrible experience. The only thing nice about it was it was by the water.

    I looked at their website for the Miami Bayside location and it showed an amazing Happy Hour, almost too good to be true. So I called and was told that the Happy Hour at Bayside only included the cocktails not the half priced appetizers, salads and food choices. I made a reservation and sat indoors in the bar area. We asked the waitress about the Happy Hour cocktail menu and she said that there wasn’t any Happy Hour at this location. We ordered our full price drinks and food. The service was mediocre as our waitress disappeared after we ordered a second round of drinks. The vegetarian fried rice was delicious and the snapper was also quite tasty. The biggest problem was the false advertising.

    Food was really delicious, but service was okay, our server was nice and polite but we were unattended during the whole dinner, we ordered some appetizers and entrées but the appetizers arrived and within 2 minutes we had the entrées so we had to rush it and eat our apps really fast so the entrees won’t get cold. Also, bathrooms were nasty, no paper towels to dry my hands or to grab the door knob. Overall an okey experience, food was really good and the bay views compensate a little for the service.
