    Had a very good time. Food and music were good. Mentioned I was there for my 50th wedding anniversary. They gave me a flan(desert) and sang . Hoping I would get the desert for free but they charged me. Nice place to eat or have a drink.

    The food was a bit bland for an authentic Cuban restaurant. The plantains and dip were good but the whole snapper was sooo unflavorful.

    Booked a table for Valentine’s Day. Arrived on time. They had no table for us. They wanted to put us in some back room that looked really gloomy and where you cannot see the band. There were tables for 4 open, asked them if they could give us one of these (they could have transformed them into two tables for 2). They refused saying they were booked. I guess some bookings have priority over others. We left for another restaurant. Glad I live in the neighborhood and hadn’t come from far to not get the table I had booked. Disappointing, I was looking forward to try the food which is supposed to be good.

    First time trying out this location for a Valentine’s Day dinner for myself & my partner & we loved it ! Great food & portions for value, lovely drinks, unmatched ambiance & superb service. We asked to be seated in a more quiet area for intimacy & they provided perfectly without missing out of the overall ambiance. Staff was very friendly & helpful with recommendations. Would definitely be recommend & be returning !

    Took my mother in law to her favorite place for dinner. Our group of 7 all enjoyed our meals and desserts. The band they had playing sang lots of great salsa and sang Happy Birthday.to my mother in law. Great little spot in Spanish Harlem.

    The food doesn’t taste the same from when I went last year. I didn’t like the food at all unfortunately. I would say only the plain yellow rice was good.

    It was very disappointing, the food was cold and didn’t have any taste it was very bland. And they allow dogs which I found unsanitary. Will not be going back.

    The server took our food order really late and the food took forever because it was a big party. I was hoping for a more seamless night for my birthday dinner but the quality of the food never disappoints. Service has taken a hit though.

    Wonderful lunch with great service. Granted not many people but the Cuban experience was awesome. Highly recommend the Mojitos, the ceviche and the special pork with rice and black beans. I am sure it rocks at night with the live band.

    This local restaurant has been an important part of the Hispanic social life in the neighborhood for many years. The drinks are inventive and leave a lasting impression with the food bringing back memories of great island cooking. The atmosphere is welcoming and strives for the feeling that everyone belongs there. A lovely dinning experience.
