The food was fantastic. Lots of yummy flavors. The jazz band was a nice addition. My only complaint is that the food service is way too fast! We placed our entree order and then I went to the restroom to wash my hands, which took less than 5 minutes. I returned to our table and sat down and the food arrived! They weren’t appetizers, they were entrees!

We’ll go again but will be strategic in our ordering.

Good food, but not great. The staff had t-shirts suggesting they're better than the Cuban restaurants in Miami and Tampa. I'd say the Columbia in Tampa is far better.

We had a great time on our double date! We introduced new food to our friends and they fell in love with Cuban cuisine. Drinks were slightly overpriced for the amount of alcohol that was actually used. Overall it was a wonderful dinner experience!

We were in Savannah to celebrate NYE and say good riddance to 2020. Tables were moderately distanced but after spending a weekend in Savannah it appears what is considered socially distanced here is different than where I live. Anyway, the service and drinks were excellent. The food was good but nothing to holler about. We had the sampler appetizer, Cuban salad and paella. Flavors were kinda mile, salad was just OK. Paella was a nice portion but could have used more spice and better quality seafood.

The tamale was watery and overmicrowaved. The meat was old. We left after the appetizer in fear of what the rest of the menu food was like.

Just a neighborhood lower end common eatery. Serves the local area. Food quality was below average. Would never return not a “tourist” hot spot for sure. Out of the main tourist area and catering to the locals. On the other hand it wasn’t cheap-so overpriced for poor quality

The hostess was EXTREMELY RUDE upon arrival. Told us to mask up or else she refused to seat us. (We had masks in hand.)

Then, after we put masks on, she walked us 6 paces to our table and sat us there. Informed us that we were now allowed to remove masks with sincere sarcasm. Pretty rude.

Our waitress was amazing, kind and attentive. The food and mojitos were amazing (as they always are!) They have live (awesome) music on Friday and Saturday nights. It’s a great place!!!

Just need to improve the “Savannah style welcome” that your hostess stand is not giving on behalf of the team.

This was our first visit and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere with plenty of seating. I ordered the plato mixto, which was pork, chicken and steak which was very good; however, my husband ordered a chicken dish that was dry and tasteless.
They have a very active takeout bar trade that has people coming in to the bar throughout the evening which takes away from the ambiance and creates constant traffic through the restaurant.
Overall, we will try it again.

First time to encounter a Cuban Restaurant and we were both surprised with the food which was excellent. Their appetizer assortment was fantastic and the paella was the best I have ever eaten. Mixed drinks and the jazz musicians were the icing on the cake. Would return to this experience when we are again in Savannah.

Best kept secret in Savannah. We were there for lunch and it was all locals and workers ... I think we were the only tourists. They have spaced the tables apart for safety and they do a booming take out business.

Where do I start with the compliments... The atmosphere was wonderful and still honored social distancing. The food was lovely and when one item didn't really turn out the way I wanted it was removed from my bill without me asking. Was amazing and the service was absolutely 5 star. We will be coming back here many times when we visit Savannah
