Had two excellent meals while visiting Miami in July. The Croquetas de Jamon are to die for. If you try nothing else, get the croquetas. We enjoyed the Sampler Criollo, Lechón Asado, Baby Churrasco, Mojitos, Flan, Rice, Beans, Moros, Maduros and of course, the bread....More

This is my second visit to Islas Canarias and it's consistently good. It reminds me of my grandmother's home cooking. Not only is the food good but the portions are filling. Consistently good and great service.

First visited this restaurant 10 years ago, and today came for breakfast and later dinner. Authentic Cuban food. Best ham croquettes in Miami. Servers are always friendly.

I live in the neighborhood so it’s easy for me to frequent this restaurant when I want Cuban food. However, both my husband and I agree that the quality has changed in the recent past. For example, my husband always gets the “Corte Americano steak”...More
