This place is a gem. And while it's always been busy when I've gone, the delicious & fresh food is worth the wait. Fun, loud bachata or salsa music, with a sprinkling of American tunes..the atmosphere is eclectic. The staff does their best & will...More

I was unfamiliar with Cuban food so was interested to try a mixed plate of different Cuban experiences. Price was good, staff was friendly and instructive and I don't remember what I ate but, enjoyed the different tastes.
