This restaurant was recommended by someone who frequents Key West. The restaurant was packed with a wait for a table which is usually a good sign. My husband had the yellow-tailed snapper which he loved. I had coconut shrimp which was pretty average. With that being said, I think their specialty is Cuban food so maybe I should have ordered...

Chose El Siboney's because recommended by friends. Quite a bicycle ride from Truman annex, but we did fine. No wait, but crowded. Terrific menu selection and moderate prices. Food was delicious.

We went there for dinner on recommendation from our hotel. Don't expect a posh location, it is a simple restaurant. But it makes it up with a friendly staff and gooood food! The portions are hughe, the drinks are Ok. We would try it again, if we go back to Key West again.

We had a late lunch here on our first trip to Key West. We had just gotten in and were waiting for our hotel room and had heard from a friend it was really good. We weren't disappointed. The portions are good size (enough to share) and I thought it was reasonably priced for that reason and for Key West.... More

I'm sorry to give a poor review, but the food here shows a lack of caring. They are riding on their reputation, but not earning it. Grilled garlic chicken? Overlooked to the point of mush. Rice, flavorless and a ball of mush. Black beans- a little hard and without flavor. The homemade sangria, sickly sweet and out of a commercial... More

We found this great small restaurant four years ago. Our return was nothing less than all we could ask for. El Siboney seems to be busy all the time . . . and there's a good reason: the food is terrific!! Add great service, a wide selection on the menu, and an easy going environment, and you have a memorable... More

This was our 3rd time eating here. There's usually a wait, but we come very late and get seated quickly. Their beans, rice sautéed onions and roasted chicken is the best. My husband likes the pulled pork. Always get the house made sangria too. Inexpensive and quick service.

We've been to this restaurant for dinner: very tasty typical cuban food, good portions, affordable [cheap for Key West, actually], attentive service, picturesque atmosphere. Worth visiting when in Key West.
