This is a good place for both food and drinks. On some nights, there is live music. The waiter offered me some free yuca with my meal - very tasty!

Typical Cuban food with very good service. The mojitos are excellent and well worth a visit. We did not like their price politic: even though the menu stated 10 % less with cash payment, we were charged the full amount. Just after having the discussion with the waitress about the discount, we were shown another menu with different prices (for... More

This local bar and dancing place is perfect to go in couples or wiith friends. They have got life music and everyone is in the mood for dancing as the band plays. You can also have a drink and chat, but don't expect much conversation as the music is pretty loud.

Live music at weekends, and great mojitos! Friendly staff too and a cool, laid back atmosphere. Nice outside space and two inside bars to choose from.

We went really early, mojito was perfect for me. Strong! We didn't eat because we didn't have much time but, the waitress was very nice. I wish we could of stayed for the band considering we were told they are really good. If you go, don't forget to leave you name somewhere. I'm coming back!

Visited 6/9/14...the service was very super slow. Everything on the menu is sort of a la carte \ individual menu items. This place had great music, great decor, tables look authentic made out of leather and wood (old fashion). I ordered some Ropa Vieja and I highly recommend it. Once the food was ordered, it came out really quick. Plates... More
