Staff is always friendly and attentive. Food is fresh and did not have to wait long for food after ordering. Fried yucca so tasty and sangria is amazing.

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

You wouldn’t think of Savannah as a place to get authentic Cuban food...but you can and it’s excellent.

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

It was good, I got the lunch special 1/2 chicken and my wife got the pork. Each of our meals came with rice, beans and plantains. The plantains were the best we’ve ever had. Rice was good and the beans for good my chicken was good loved the acidity but the chicken was very dry. We ordered and less then 5 minutes our food came out which tells me a lot. The chicken did taste reheated. My girlfriends pork was very good. We’d give it another try. Over all good flavors.

I order the Cuban sandwich it was very thin instead of a robust portion of pork along with baked sliced ham it was deli ham not as authentic as I hoped. The rest of the food the beans and Soup appetizers was great.

Too many people lined up for take out alcoholic drinks in front of the stage. Blocking the view of the jazz performance. They didn’t seem to make the jazz performance high priority as the integrated part of the restaurant. The performance was excellent. They deserve to play at a better place until the restaurant pays more attention to their showcase. I went there because of the live jazz music and the food and to have an enjoyable evening. The food was good. This place can be liked the good time jazz restaurant in Savannah which is currently closed. In fact their food is better than good time jazz.
