Our family enjoyed this down to earth dining restaurant. The service was fantastic and the portions were big. The #7 is a must (Cuban style steak), #24 (Coconut shrimp) was yummy, #26 Grouper was good as well. Sangria is house made and tastes great! Would love to have such great Cuban food in the area we live.

There is a lot of food to eat. All of it is good, just maybe not seasoned liked American since this is Cuban and much blander. We tried pork, garlic chicken and hogfish. All come with soup, yellow rice and plantains. Black beans were ordered on the side. We couldn't finish it all. Service was good and the food arrived... More

The concierge where we were staying recommended El Siboney if you wanted real Cuban food, not the touristy type. It's off the beaten path, a bit of a walk (or bike ride or drive), but well worth it. We went for lunch (you might want to arrive a bit before noon, it got crowded very quickly) and had a Cuban... More

Plenty of Cuban inspired food for a fair price. Ordered meatballs and mashed potatoes. I didn't get the fried bananas as a side dish and I immediately regretted that decision when I saw my friend's plate.

My husband and I recently visited El Siboney again and both had the shrimp with yellow rice and black beans. This is a great value on the island and delicious Cuban style food. We love eating here because there are so many nationalities and languages represented, but everyone is there for terrific Cuban food. The staff is friendly and moves... More

Outstanding Cuban food. No waiting but don't be fooled. Friendly efficient staff. Restaurant is hidden a neighborhood so don't panic. It's worth it.

The gift store employee at the Dry Tortugas recommended this restaurant and it was so authentic and delicious. There was a small wait, but the staff was super efficient in turning tables. We had the Vaca Frita (YUM!) and the pork with tamal. Kids had cuban sandwiches. I would go back again and again. The sangria was great too!
