The one word I would use to describe this restaurant is, marginal. Three out of four in our party elected not to finish their meals. While the music was good, it was loud for the acoustics. We had a reservation but still had a substantial wait for a table. Because we took out of town guests here, the experience was just that much more disappointing. I was embarrassed.

Food and service was outstanding, as usual. It was date night and me and my wife shared the pargo frito (flash fried whole fish) with black beans, yellow rice, plantains, and sangria. Could it be any better?

Their slogan is "best Cuban north of Miami" and it's true. The place is always packed on the weekend with good reason. It's a local favorite. The food is unpretentious yet outstandingly good and simple, just like you would expect from Cuban food. Live jazz spices up Friday and Saturday nights and although its not Latin, per se, it somehow works. Great Cuban flavor, relaxed casual environment, live music, and the best mojitos in town. An excellent casual restaurant in the heart of downtown Savannah. Reservations needed.

Food is authentic Cuban. Was disappointed when I ordered (and paid for) grouper but was served a small white fish filet that was obviously not a grouper. The meal was still tasty but not sure the value met the price. Live music is fun but a little too loud for the space in my opinion.

We have eaten here many, many times. Great menu, wine list and service staff. Unfortunately, we found the 1/2 chicken almost inedible as it was as dry as the Sahara.
Our server was wonderful. Our fault that we did not make it known to as I know she would’ve taken care of the problem right away. Just would’ve expected the dish to be of the same quality as we’ve had on most occasions in the past. It seems that when I have ordered the 1/2 chicken in the past is always a bit dry. It is so flavorful though just wish it could be just more moist.

The service was very slow even though the restaurant was not that busy. The food was mediocre. Someone in our party ordered mussels and many of them were not opened causing some concern about eating them. When brought to the servers attention she simply shrugged and didn't think it was a big deal. We had to flag our server down several times for beverage service. Not a great experience at all.

We drove from Atlanta to spend the weekend for my daughter's 16th birthday so she could hear Derek Brown who was a guest play . The cozy atmosphere allowed her to meet him, get his autograph and he even dedicated a song to her. I couldn't imagine anything better for her. Thanks for the memories that will last a lifetime for her.

Live jazz music on Friday was a nice surprise. The music was perfect and not so loud that you couldn't carry on a conversation. The food was only marginal, nothing to write home about.

Lunchtime was quiet, maybe due to the construction and difficulty parking. That said, food here is always delish. The chicken is so tender it falls off the bones. Pulled pork and shredded beef, Cuban style are also delicious. Brand and sweet plantains make the meal!
