They have great sandwiches, I think the #8 is the ticket. the bread is really good. They also serve breakfast, which is also damn good.

Best Latin food anywhere! All food served hot and fresh cooked. My favorites are the fire coasted corn, the rice bean trio with roast pork and the ahi Mahdi in red sauce (be careful if ordering the optional spice, 2 is plenty hot!).

Great food from an old gas station. Be ready to enjoy the eclectic atmosphere eating wonderfull food outside the restaurant. We watched a mother hen protect nine of her chicks from an unruly rooster while enjoying wonderful Caribbean pork and corn on the cob. Double check there hours as they are not open every day.

We had enjoyed the food at this restaurant when it had a different name and probably different management and chef, but now, I have to say "Wow!" All four of us loved our choices. One had a sirloin sandwich of some sort and brought half of it home because the size was quite large. The vegetarian in our group said... More

Anyone who's ever eaten there knows what a great place this is. New name, but same great food. Roasted ears of corn are a must. Parking is nearly impossible except for bikes or scooters. Very informal outdoor dining.

This place is amazing! The breakfast menu is small but the selections are fantastic. The service was fairly fast. Let me tell you, those sandwiches are HUGE! It's money well spent. A great value in a very expensive city

Five easy blocks from the hustle and bustle of Duval St, this little cafe serves fresh and filling caribbean food. The 'Caribbean Bowl' is particularly delicious. Well worth the short walk to the corner of Eaton and Grinnell. Order inside, then eat outside at the small streetcorner tables. This is a quieter area with minimal road traffic around lunchtime.

RUn, walk or bike to Bien and carry out or sit on one of the few outdoor tables and enjoy the fantastic Caribbean/Latino food. My husband and I took a nice walk and picked up dinner to bring back to my waiting Mother-in-Law. She and my husband had the Rice Bean Trio with the Caribbean Roast Pork and I had... More

My husband and I just had lunch at Bien today. It is a small carryout type place that looks like it may have once been a gas station. There is some outdoor seating in front. They have a wide variety of offerings on their menu. The food was freshly made for us and then brought out to where we were... More

Great soups and sandwiches, but you must try the Caribbean combos. Just the best, if you like Cilantro like I do, this is a must...especially the steak and chicken combos. Our guests went back twice.
