The service is friendly and fast. The mojitos are quite strong, huge mint and very good. Great choice of menu items. We did the tapas for variety. The spicy meatballs, seafood medley and traditional Cuban pork dish. We will be back.

I was there mid-week and the dress was mostly business casual. There were some people that were quite well dressed. So a mix.
