We go to Islas Canarias whenever we're in the area. None of us have ever been dissatisfied with the food. It is all delicious with generous portions. That said, you MUST order the croquettes (croquetas in Spanish). They are truly home made style , and I've been to many Cuban and Spanish restaurants in my life --nobody makes them like... More

I've reviewed Versailles, El Rincon and La Caretta. They all have similar menus and pricing but this is my favorite. The food is a level above the others in taste and quality. e.g. hot rolls just out of the oven. Delicious sauces not available in the others. Allthough all serve maduros (baked plantain) they do it better here. Quantities are... More

Met my Cuban Cousins at this restaurant and gorged on traditional Cuban food that I do not have available in Virginia. We enjoyed traditional dishes such as Vaca Frita, Ropa Vieja, Masas de Puerco, black beans and rice, and sweet plantains. Reasonably prtand delicious.

The first time was the last. I was greeted within a few minutes of being seated but the server that greeted me did not take my drink order. Another five minutes went by before I was greeted again and asked what I wanted to drink. I ordered at the same time which consisted of two chicken croquetas and a palamillo... More

We showed up late at night following a Philharmonic Concert and not expecting a lot from this unassuming, suburban, store front establishment, but boy...were we surprised! The service was 10 stars, on a a 5 star scale and the food, simply incredible. This place is worth the drive even if you are miles away. We lived it and will find... More
