Despite being open for almost 2 years, this was the first time visiting this restaurant. The seating area was plentiful and there were incredibly friendly and hard-working servers. This is authentic Cuban cuisine with a great menu. We had dinner on a Wednesday night and Tuesdays and Wednesdays are half-price house margaritas, empanadas and croquettes. We started with beef empanadas and chicken croquettes as appetizers, both were served with unique sauces, and the empanadas were as good as I’ve ever had and very flavorful. The croquettes were tasty, but just lacked a little bit of flavor. We moved onto the chicken street tacos and the Lechon Asado, a Cuban Style Roasted Pork marinated with Mojo Criollo and roasted overnight. Both main courses were served with white rice and black beans as well as very delicious sweet plantains. And of course, a margarita to wash them down. The meals were exceptional, the service amazing and dinner for two with drinks and appetizers came out $50, which I thought was very reasonable for the amount of food that was served. Highly recommended and we will be back soon!

Great soft opening as there could be more reasonable price food on the menu. The cocktails were good but need a bigger selection of bourbon cocktails. I think the patio and live music is a nice tough.

Ordered the fish and chips, the fish was slightly overcooked. The service was exceptional.
