Dinner is always delicious! Lots of options, great atmosphere and good service. For lunch, you can't be the $7-to-go menu!

Authentic Cuban food. Excellent service and a warm and cozy atmosphere. Worth the wait, you will not regret it. In a dry town but you can bring whatever you choose...beer, wine or liquor. Loved it can't wait to go back.
