Everything was so good, but we had awkward cultural (i guess) exchanges. When or what we were ordering. Everything came out fine. Just weird getting there. Music started at 7, nice atmosphere​.

This places has the perfect amount of tapas! There is enough that you feel full but not so much that you feel like you just had another thanksgiving dinner. I prefer the dining in the "patio" it's all around a beautiful place.

Second trip to this fine place. Be sure to get a picture of mojito's. Try some appetizers. We have tried 8 different ones on two trips. Excellent pre meal snacks. Had the Cuban sandwich, wife had a chicken on special bun and beef kabobs. Wow. All were excellently prepared. Great atmosphere. Good prices. Super service. A special plan to dine... More

As a International/Cuban Chief and Cuban Restaurant owner, from Miami, I am qualified to say that this restaurant is not preparing authentic Cuban food correctly. We found a bone piece in the Spanish tapas. Overly salted food items. Over priced, small portions. The waitress asked if everything was good, I explained I was Cuban/American/Chef of Cuban restaurant w/30 yrs. of... More

This has been one of my favorite local restaurants for a number of years. The food is very good, the servers are gracious, and the value is very good. If you're looking for a trial menu, I suggest queso fundito as an appetizer, a Media Noche sandwich, and a mojito. Just make sure that you have time to digest the... More

Wait staff was pleasant and attentive. The food was kinda bland with no real flavor. Maybe we ordered the wrong items. Will not be returning.

Us being Cubans, my husband and I had been thinking about visiting this restaurant for a while. The food was very tasty and they had vegetarians options as well, which I didn't think they had, so that was a good surprise. What we liked the most was how attentive our waitress was. I don't remember her name very well, I... More

Went here for my anniversary, just to try something different across the river, and was not disappointed! We ordered a small tapas and two entrees, and left full and happy. Couldn't beat the price for what you get, too.

This is chic place for a date. My wife loves it and feels like it is kind of a change of pace. It's all Cuban stuff so be prepared to try something new
